I am a mother to two amazing kids and wife to a retired Air Force Sergeant. They are truly my best friends, my whole life.
I was born in Mozambique but shortly after had to leave due to the Independence War and there began my journey. From Mozambique to Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and then to Portugal, where we lived for 10 years and finally to South Africa where I spent most of my life. It is what I consider my home, it's where I did my schooling, where I made my first friends, had my first boyfriend and grew into a young woman.
I spent many years as a Radio DJ and I absolutely loved it, in between that, I also sang, yes sang, in front of many thousands of people and recorded two songs. They were some of the best years of my life, I look back today and thank the Lord for having been so blessed and having experienced so many wonderful adventures during my childhood years.
In 1997 I met my husband, Curtis, on the internet. He was in the States and I was in South Africa. After one year of communicating back and forth, he flew to South Africa and we were married, shortly after I moved to the USA.
I left behind my whole life, my family, my friends, my roots and with a little baby in my belly, I made the huge journey across the ocean from one continent to another. It was scary and it was exciting and I'm so glad I did it.
We've now been married for 15 years and have two beautiful children who we love more than life.
I love cooking, reading, crocheting, photography, knitting, sewing, astronomy, movies, Jane Austen.....so many things, I think it's what life is about, being able to enjoy a little of everything.
I'm a firm believer in enjoying every single second and making it count.
The years we spent as a military family were some of the hardest times in our lives, there were many sacrifices, many tears and many separations, but also many rewards. It was a life lived to the fullest, and an amazing roller coaster of adventures.
We are living our dream, a home in the country surrounded by nature, by mountains and horses and cows. It's all about learning a new way of life, how to do things, how to budget with a retirement check and how to live away from a military base and the routines and schedules that we were so used to.
I always say that if the pioneers could do it, then so can we. Where life is going to lead us, we are not sure, but as long as we're together, it doesn't matter....we will be happy.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my little corner of the web!
