Mom of three (grown) children: Ross Jr. 22, Jacqueline 20, Michael 16. We adopted two rescue dogs : Axel (2.5 years) & Noel (1 year).

Outside of school, my dogs are big so they walk ME (LOL!), I love to read and listen on Audible, and spend time outside at our firepit with family and friends, watch my youngest son play football and wrestle at his high school. Grateful!  

In the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years. -Abraham Lincoln
