Hi! Come on in and grab a cocktail and some snackies. Welcome to my blog party. This my second blog party. I had so much fun last year, I had to throw another party this year. I'm so glad you could stop by.
My name is Nancy and I am a 55 year old wife and mother. I'm also a daughter, aunt, sister, mother-in-law, friend and employee. But, the very best thing I am is a grandma! I have two granddaughters who are the lights of my life and any day now, they will be welcoming a little brother to their family. My grandson will be the first boy in our family in 25 years. Nothing but girls for 25 years. Is that crazy or what? The oldest girl is a month shy of being four and the youngest is 18 months. My daughter is going to have her hands full.
I've been married for 37 years to a wonderful man. He retired at age 55 and loves it. We have four daughters. Our oldest is 35 and is a school teacher. She has been married for four years and is a marathon runner. She is also a fellow blogger. Next, we have twin daughters who will be 27 in a few weeks. One is a nanny and married for a year and a half. Two grand dogs with that daughter. The other twin is a stay at home mom to my two granddaughters and my soon to be grandson. She has been married for five and a half years. My youngest is a senior at Purdue majoring in elementary education. She has a very steady boyfriend. They have been together for five years.
I work full time at a preschool and love every minute of it. I don't think there is a better job for me. I've been blogging for just over a year now. I had no idea when I started how much I would grow to love it. I have made some wonderful friends. I am losing weight because of my girls at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans and I've become a much better photographer because of You Capture. I also enjoy reading, walking, sewing and playing with my grandkids. The grandkids take up a lot of my time and I wouldn't have it any other way. Feel free to look around. I have a giveaway going on that ends on Monday and new one starting next week.
So....I'm anxious to go and meet all of you. I'm guessing that I already know some of you. Thank you to Five Minutes for Mom for hosting this event.
