Introduction Me? I am friendly AND shy, extremely optimistic and quite a bit of a day dreamer. I am impulsive and deep loving, with a definite inner streak of pragmatic. I love to stare at sunbeams and dappled shade, the scent of rain and water and beautiful things thrill me to tears. In short, I'm confessing to being a "HOPELESS romantic". I'm married to Tom, who is the pastor of one of the churches here in town and I have 3 active and creative boys (do they come any other way?) - Toby (10), David (12) and Lliam (14). This, also means, that I am a very HUMBLED pastor's wife and proud of it! I love beautiful things and working forever on making my home a sanctuary. I'm desperately addicted to Scrabble and drool when I see fabrics or china (very embarrassing). I am a lyric/coloratura soprano and I would play the piano for 8 hours a day if I could. Most of all, however, out of all these things, I love God the best. I'm here because I want to share the simple, golden warmth and joy of the Sunny Spot that I'm in with you.
