About Me

My name is Donna and I have been married to Steve for 36 years. We have a grown daughter and son. We have 2 cats, Mistletoes, my crafting partner, and Winnie, my shy Tortie. I am a Christian who strives to show Gods love by the way I live my life. I do not smoke and my household is a nonsmoking environment. I like to make cards. I love to ride my bike, and I love to visit places near the ocean. I have been a teachers aide for different schools. My last position was a preschool teachers aide. Loved that job!! Now I substitute at various schools as a preschool aide! Started junior college at 32 years of age and completed 60 credit hours so I could become a teachers aide. I enjoyed school and it was one of the best things I did.


It is official, we are now Grandparents.
