My name is Vicki. I grew up in Columbus, Ohio and am now living in Florida. I’ve also lived in Monterey, California and if I had my druthers, that’s where I’d be living.
My happy place is the beach.
I lost my husband Henry on January 22, 2015. Eight months later I lost my babydog Patches, who I had for 17 years. Those losses were the hardest thing I’ve ever had to go through. I miss them both so very much.
I have 3 children (2 sons and 1 daughter), 4 grand kids (2 girls and 2 boys).
I adopted a puppy mill survivor who I named Kaiyo on January 13th, ’16. Kaiyo is adorable and is learning that not everyone will abuse her. Together we’re helping each other heal. I sure do love that dog.
I live with son #2, and will soon be moving to a nearby town, next door to son #1 and his family. (It’s ok, son #1 talked son #2 into buying the house.)
I fell in love with books the second my mom read me “Are You My Mother?” by P. D. Eastman. I loved the story, but I also loved the cover, and I’ve been a cover snob ever since.
I’m trying to get healthier by eating better and exercising more. My choices to get moving are biking, walking, strength training, qi gong/ tai-chi, and step aerobics.
I also love photography, watching tv /movies, and playing board/card games with my family. Any time spent with family is a blessing!
My favorite place in the whole world is the beach.
My favorite food is pizza.
My favorite dessert is chocolate anything.
I love me a Code Red and Fast Break every once in a while.
