The Welcome Mat is Ready - Come on in!
First of all, a great big THANKS to Debbie, for sharing my blog with her followers on LOVE THE DECOR. The world of blogging is fascinating to me and since I started mine just this year in June, I have had a wonderful time getting acquainted with people from all over, Debbie included, who by the way, is a great swap partner! It truly is a small world!
I began Late to the Party as a way to express myself and to convey the variety of things that I find interesting and unusual. I have always loved to write and thought this would be an excellent way to show the world what I like, what I think and what makes me tick. The way I look at life is sometimes 180 degrees different than most people and that's okay. I hope I give people that read Late to the Party something to think about. Besides that, it is great therapy for me!
As for my personal life beyond the blogging world, I am 58 years old but I certainly don't feel that old! I have been married to a wonderful man, Ed, for 38 years and have three grown daughters (one here in GA, one in South Carolina, and one in Vancouver, Canada), two wonderful sons-in-law and five grandchildren, one of whom has . I work for the as an administrative assistant for two committee chairmen. I LOVE my job, even though during the legislative session months of January, February, March and April, it can be very hectic and chaotic. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, which presents its own problems, but I won't allow it to define me. And over the past year I have lost 107 pounds, started hiking and am going to hike for the first time on the in October. All in all, life is so very good and I am blessed - blessed with family near and far, with friends old and new, with hearth and home, with relatively good health and a curious mind, and blessed with a God that loves me unconditionally. What more can a girl ask for?
So make yourself at home and explore at your leisure. I invite you to become a follower and we will laugh and cry and ponder the universe and all that makes life worthwhile together! And PLEASE feel free to leave your comments when you do!
