About Me

Family Pic 6/2012I’m Joell and I have been married to my high school sweetheart (AKA Hubby or Sweetie)  for 23 years.  I am a full time wife and mom.  We have two amazing kids–Jacob, 18 and Emma,  15 (going on 30).  They are both bright and incredibly funny–and provide me with a lot of writing material! <wink>  We have moved around quite a bit with my hubby’s work, and currently find ourselves in South Carolina.  As we are both native Southerners, we are happy to be here–the land of sweet iced tea, the ocean and Chick-fil-a!

I love the beach, reading, blogging, and taking care of my family. I am passionate about special needs children,  as our son lives with Asperger’s Syndrome, an autism spectrum disorder.  I am a firm believer in approaching life with humor and my faith in God.  I have been blogging on and off since late 2006 and I like to think of it as my free therapy…so far it seems like it might be working. One can hope!

I have always loved writing, starting with poetry as a teenager, which kinda fizzled after my angsty teen years. Then, I started blogging almost 7 years ago. Now in my {early} 40s, I write about my family, mothering teens, Asperger’s and autism, aging, my faith and lessons I learn, our neighbor’s cat, and our HOA. Generally, whatever hits me when I sit down at the keyboard! On any given day, you may laugh or you may cry! Either way, I am glad you are here!

Writing definitely helps me keep my sanity, but I also want to encourage people, make people laugh,  and help people see that there are always lessons we can learn from our circumstances–that everyone has a story.

I would love to hear yours.

Welcome!
