I am at my most calm and tranquil place at the beach. I try not to speak, I listen. Listen to the ocean, the waves, the gulls, the breeze, the silence. I'm lucky to have a place to go where I am away from the noise. I spent a week at out home in Cape May. Nothing better, no place I rather be but here, there. It is my sanctuary.
Watched my youngest son and his cousin wrestle with the waves and applauded as they appeared victorious after surviving being tossed inside the barrel of a wave.
My husband and I bought a 1960's year old Colonial style farmhouse that we fell in love with. Over the years we have restored, added on to and gone through renovations. I am a mother of two, wife, teacher and writer. I write fiction and am the author of The Shoebox and the newly published The Eighth Summer. I have a third one in the works. I love writing, reading, gardening, blogging, searching for vintage things, baking, living a healthy lifestyle, taking care of animals and coffee. Alot of coffee.
