I'm a traditional Catholic who loves to drink wine while cooking for my family and friends and serving it up on colorful Fiestaware. When I'm not cooking, I'm creating mosaic art or volunteering as a cashier in a busy charity thrift store. Happily married 31+ years, we have three beautiful daughters and two dogs, a 150 gallon fish tank and a cockatiel. And I have a special and deep devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary which have blessed our lives abundantly. Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on us. Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for us.
