I am Sandy. I am a daughter, granddaughter, sister, and friend. I love my family, friends, traveling, photography, shopping, shoes, purses and my dogs. I am not a girlie girl, but do sometimes wear my heart on my sleeve.  I am a nurse at a local hospital where I have seen lives begin and end. Creating is my escape from that reality. Through this blog, I hope to give you a glimpse of the things that are me.
