Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

I filled you in on several great giveaways at Bookin' With Bingo, and I simply HAVE to fill you in on a few more. First, I would love, love, love to win Ravens by George Dawes Green! To win, put on your thinking caps and check out the fabulous blog tour stop at Bookin' With Bingo. You have until 6pm EST on August 4th.
Check out other great giveaways at Bookin' With Bingo such as : The Spies of Warsaw (8/2), The Devil's Company (8/3), American Lion (8/3) I am crazy about Neil Gaiman. One of my favorite books is Neverwhere which I have hoped would one day be put to life on film. For now...I wait. I have been hoping to get my hands on a copy of The Graveyard Book, and I know it is a high priority on my husband's Christmas list for me, but an autographed copy trumps that wish! The chance is at Maw Book Blog! Can you imagine?!! You have until July 31st so really MOVE IT!!!!
I am a huge fan of graphic novels. This all began when I was dating a guy who was VERY into comics. I went along with him to comic book shows in New York, Boston, New Hampshire, Maine and Rhode Island. At first, I hated it. I was bored beyond belief. Then I thought about how much I enjoyed comics when I was a kid. I figured I might as well browse a bit. My love affair with the graphic novel began. First I became enamored with Tomb Rader, Witchblade, Knights of the Dinner Table, Aria, BVS, Xena, and Sandman. I became really good at going through boxes and boxes of comics to find my gold. I had quite a collection after a few years, and sadly, when I moved from Rhode Island, I sold most of what I had at a yard sale and sold it quickly. I still kept a box of my favorites. The love never faded. I still pick up a new one here and there, but I don't have the great access I once did when picking up these treats. Which is probably good, because I spent a heck of a lot of money on comics back in the day. When I read that Literary Escapism had an interview with Jerry Gonzales and the opportunity to win Dusk, I practically had palpitations! Yep...the very idea made me write an entire HUGE paragraph for this giveaway. Go check out the interview. Get in on this chance. If you like graphic novels or if you are at the very least intrigued by this literary genre, you should really check this out. Giveaway ends July 28th!!!!
Yep...really rambled there. This is definitely a hurry up and enter day!

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
