Big Girl: My Story

Originally from Rhode Island, I now live on the Big Island of Hawai‘i with my husband Jim. We met on Oahu in April of 2012 and were married in December 2016. Each of us is the proud parents of two fabulous adult children, all of whom are on adventures of their own.

In addition to muddling through the rewards and challenges of everyday life, we made the move into a tiny house, the beginning of which is chronicled in its own section.

In the fall of 2019, I took a hiatus from publishing, which paralleled a darker time for me and went along with my disconnection from social media. I did continue to write on occasion, but the bits never left my draft folder. In summer 2021, I was drawn to publishing once again, even sharing some of those dark-time drafts. Heck, life’s an adventure, right?

Thanks for joining me as I muse, emote, and chronicle!
