Hello and welcome to my blog!
I never really thought about starting a blog much before recently, I mean … what did I have to say or offer that would have anything of value?
I love writing about things that matter and are important to me – things like genealogy and travel.
I can speak to topics such as coming up through the lower ranks of the social financial system, being a teen mom, being an empty nester at 42, highlight some trials, tribulations and exaltations and about how I created a life for myself that I am happy with beyond measure.
It wasn’t much before a friend of mine said “you should write a book” that I gave some serious consideration to blogging, and now based on my life experiences I am in the process of writing my first manuscript.
I welcome your comments, questions and ideas about what you’d like to chat about.
Namaste, T xo

The recent update has really narrowed the percentage of Irish I have in my DNA, my current ethnicity estimate is 6%, but it can range from 0-14%, the range…
