This is my first blog, dating back to 2005 - back then, Google didn't own Blogger. That's how old this blog is ^^

Mostly, you can expect a mish-mash of topics and tones here, depending on what I'm doing at the time.

This blog is the genesis for my other five blogs on Blogger and one on WordPress. I saw a pattern of particular themes in various posts on this blog, which I then spun off into themed blogs of their own!

I live in Northern Illinois with my husband of 13 years, favorite adopted dog, Benny (a very nervous adopted Beagle guy), and favorite adopted cat, Misha (a very polite Calico gal).

I'm a trilingual communications professional with over 16 years experience as an editor, writer, and project manager for marketing, public relations, publications, online content, and more.

I'm a voracious reader and somewhat of a social media fiend. If I'm not blogging, or online, you can find me learning about one of my latest hobbies or obsessions.

Thanks for visiting!
