Get to Know Me :)

I am me and pretty darn good at being me!  I'm working on jump starting my career as a professional writer.  I realize that I am getting a late start, but better late than never.  I found some comfort and quite a bit of revelation in knowing that Jesus began his ministry at 30.  I know I can do it...and I will.  I am currently a freelance writer for a local online newspaper called the High Desert Daily and I hope to continue to develop my writing skills and eventually become a serious speech writer.  I love soccer and I've played for over 20 years.  I still play sporadically for adult leagues.  I'm extremely competitive and passionate about everything that I put my mind to.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking. It's become my niche...Thanks granny! I love my family and spending time laughing cutting up with them. Thanks for visiting my blog.  Please follow me and comment on what I have to say.  I always enjoy interaction!

  3. Hi Stephanie,
    I saw your request for bloggers to post their link on Black Enterprise Networked/LinkedIn. I just commented on your fight with yams:(
    Just wanted to say I enjoyed your blog. Best of luck to you in all your endeavors. It's never too late especially when you've found your passion. By the way did you and your best friend get married? If so congratulations!- Maci
