Five years ago, when a second bout of cancer led to my decision to retire from teaching, I decided to follow the advice I used to give to my daughters (which was to ‘sh*t or get off the pot’) and begin leading a more creative life.  I began to paint and write, and created this blog.

It was time to do what I love because…well…if not now, when?  If cancer taught me one thing it is that there is no time like the present to pursue your passions.

Since then I’ve experienced the pleasure that comes with seeing my work embraced by others.  To know that something I’ve written or created has made someone happy is a wonderful feeling.  It just lights me up and affirms that I am on the right path.

I love to create because it is my way of expressing gratitude for all the goodness in my life.  

Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit.  May your time here bring a smile to your face!  

Warmly, Grace

A short but sweet bio:

I live in Connecticut with my high school sweetheart and a mischievous Yorkie named Popeye.  I am the mother to three accomplished daughters who light up my life.  I love chocolate, pasta, singing, and reading and still dream of being in a Broadway musical someday (if only I could dance)...
