Today, I am enjoying simpler things, like spending time with my love ones, wire wrapping gemstones and sea glass, leading Wellness Laughter Yoga classes in Milford and Lewes, and taking pictures of the world around me. Most of my "spare" time is walking the beaches of Delmarva picking up Sea Glass, Sea Pottery, Delaware Bay Diamonds, Beach Stones, and Shells. I have a shop, Sand N Stones, in Lewes, Delaware where I sell my wire wrapped jewelry, and my photographs, along with Delaware and Nature gifts. When I think of Delaware, I think of the history that this wonderful state offers and the many State Parks where I spend countless hours walking and photographing my surroundings.
