Born in Pennsylvania. While growing up I lived in a suburb of Buffalo, NY with my mom and in Pennsylvania, upstate NY and NC with my dad.
Happily married with two great kids, Rheanna 22, and Nate 10.
Stay at home mom and part-time potter and career student. I like to work in clay, paint, read, watch movies, listen to music, garden, hang out with my family and friends, take my little boat somewhere really beautiful where we can get out on the water.
Being a typical american mut, I don't know much about my lineage, but my mother was part Scottish, and my father's dad was half irish. The rest is heavily German, Dutch and English.
My tastes tend to run to adult alternative. My favorites are Lyle Lovett, Cowboy Junkies, Tom Petty, Sting, Bruce Springstein, Counting Crows. I love traditional celtic, but more in performance than to listen at home. I do have a couple Chieftains CD's, Waterboys, Damien Rice, Van Morrison (of course), the soundtract from The Commitments and some Flogging Molly (the slower stuff). I love contempory Celtic music with heavy traditional influence like the Waterboys Fishermans Blues album. Would like to find more music like that!
