I am a “run through the field of flowers” kind of gal who is taking time to stop and smell the roses of life, while walking towards the next adventure. As a happy wife of over thirty-five years, a forever learning mom to nine, and a silly Mamie to six, I’ve experienced a lot of living. I am a writer, an artist, an actress, a storyteller and a photographer. I love a good laugh, a good book, a good glass of wine, a perfect gin and tonic (3 lime wedges, please) and love being on this great adventure of life, living it fully loaded.

Have a question? A thought to share? Reach out, I’d love to hear from you!

Follow me!

    Hi Jamie,

    I love that you have nine kids. 🙂 I count 11, so you’ve been blessed with a new generation, too.

    Have a great week!

    1. Yes Christee, I have been blessed with a new generation. My oldest son Philip is married to my sweet daughter-in-law Ashleigh. They have blessed us with our beautiful,energetic, silly granddaughter, Bella.

    Oh, Jamie, this is judy nickels – i believe i taught all of those grown up kids in your photo and just recognize you. I am still teaching K , but moved to Jacobs Road. I am so sorry to hear about your granddaughter. My son, just got home from being in Thailand for 2 years. His wife is from India and my grandson is with her in India until she comes back to U.s. – My son taught english in phetchaburi, thailand – I visited him in Feb. or march this past spring – good grief – i wish i had known your family was there. I am so glad to see all of you in the picture and will never forget how wonderful your children were. and your whole family – Prayers for Bella – love, judy

    1. Oh Judy, how wonderful to hear from you! I tried to find you on Facebook. I will send you a private email filling you in on life here. We still hang our Lucky ornaments every year, talk fondly of lessons and fun learned in your class and sing Betsy Q songs! Thank you for contacting me and for praying!
      Love, Jamie
