Update: While I don’t want to remove my earlier “About” content, I want to share that Spence passed away on March 4, 2017. He was at home with hospice care and I held his hand as he took his last breath. We had a life that was so much more than I could have asked for filled with love, adventures and humor. My life has changed forever but I’ll always be Spence’s Girl.
A work in progress, a student of life. Mistakes, I’ve made a few, but in the words of Sinatra, I did it my way. Found Mr Right at 35, began an affair with wine at 40, retired just shy of my 58th birthday. I’m a 6 foot tall blonde, eclectic, cat adoring, quirky kind of gal who prefers to figure things out by trial and error rather than read a manual. A skilled gourmet cook (just ask my mom) as a result of my heightened passion for food and an innate sense of creating meals without a safety net (as well as a profound addiction to the Food Network). I tend to write as I talk, over-using air-quotes, asides, hyphens and exclamation points to convey my enthusiasm since you can’t hear my voice.
“Why Spence’s Girl” you might ask? Spence is 13 years my senior and I’m “Spence’s Girl” as the fellows at the VFW and American Legion refer to me (think Trophy Wife for the older crowd). Life’s been an adventure because of Spence that I never could have realized without him. I love being Spence’s Girl!
