Here’s the Reader’s Digest version of me: happily married with two really great kids, four usually good cats, and a tiny dog rescued from behind a gas station. A military brat who lived in New York longer than anywhere else in the world (and now is back in Texas). Owner of a marketing and design firm, musician, petite (okay, short — my young adult daughter has been borrowing my clothes since she was 11) and an amputee since I was 15 (the final solution to a congenital defect). Each of these attributes is just a part of who I am. No one label defines me, but each is fair game for my blog.
