Today is my 60th birthday. I've come a long way baby!
the years, the dreams changed - I wanted to be a nurse, then a teacher
(didn't every little girl in the 50's?). I tried that in college and
hated it. Then once I discovered music, I wanted to be a piano teacher -
which I also did for a while.
It was hard trying to remember what it was like to not know what all those strange marks on the page meant.
in life I went to college and majored in changing my major. It was the
70's, after all! Finally I just quit and followed my then husband and
became the perfect corporate wife - played bridge, hosted progressive
dinners, you get the picture. That turned out not to be my piece of
cake. (Sorry about that!)
I finally graduated from
college in 1994 with a degree in Organizational Management. At that
point in my banking career, I really didn't need a degree (I was
already a Vice President), but I went ahead and did if for myself - and
my parents. Unfortunately, my father died two months shy of seeing my
get that diploma.
Today, I am finally doing
something I truly love - designing and handcrafting jewelry. How I wish I
had known that when I was 18!
