My name is Jack. I’m married and have shared my life with my hilarious and wonderful husband, Frank, for 26 years. I married into a large family, where there were a total of seventeen children! Yes, I said seventeen… 17! I have the best mother-in-law in the world… how many people can say that?! More about them later in my Blog…
Frank and I have two great and talented teenage children, Arlaraye and Tanner, who are both musically inclined… (didn’t get that from me), as well as Arlaraye being an artist.
I was born in Madison, Wisconsin (Yes, I’m a cheese head) and currently live in Chicago, but would love to retire somewhere warm and cozy and have cows for neighbors. My dream is to own lots of land and have an art studio as big as a barn, with different work stations! I am a self-taught artist, which I have my own art room, where I like to play and create. I like to dabble in everything… mosaics, watercolors, decoupaging, beading… it all depends upon what mood I’m in… hence the different areas of work stations.
I also enjoy writing and expressing my thoughts onto paper. I am in the process of writing my memoirs and would love to share with the world one day.
I work as an Administrative Assistant for a neurosurgical group and have been busting my bubbles for them for over 25 years. Another dream of mine is to win the lottery so that I can express to them exactly how much they all mean to me… (Yes, I’m being sarcastic.)
I love to be with family and friends, laugh and enjoy a couple… okay, several… cocktails! My family and friends mean the world to me and every one of them are there for a reason. We also share our life and home with four fuzzy little creatures: Layla, a Golden Retriever and three kitty cats, Sasha Bleu, Willow Rayne and Freddie Big Balls.
Our house is full and I can honestly say that there is never a dull moment in our home that’s for sure!
