Me

Hi!  My name is Suzy…aka Suzy Q, wife, mom of 7, grandma, daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, and friend. 😉 This blog is my way of endorsing love, respect, and “world peace”…along with silliness and my occasional “make no sense” sense of personality. Yep, I’m a goofball and proud of it!  I love to laugh and be silly. I think it is really important to still feel like a kid sometimes… and yes, I still run and jump on the shopping cart to my car 🙂

My family and friends are awesome and I couldn’t ask for anything else. I love family events. Being w/ the family is very important. Plus, there is always lots of food! 😀 Being born in the late 70’s into a family of musical entertainers, my mainstream music likes are 80’s, modern pop, big band, and jazz.  I have been singing since I was 10 and am a self taught guitar and piano player…which I’m still majorly learning. My favorite all time movie is The Princess Bride along side of The Count of Monte Cristo.

I’m 39 about to go over the hill in August. I’m the baby sister to some pretty awesome siblings, Jennifer, Eric, and Christina. My mom, Shirley, raised us on her own and she did a pretty darn good job at it. #singlemom ✊… Which leads me to…
I was a single mom for 10 years until I met my husband. We’ve now been married for almost 12 years.

I started my own home based business at Cornflower Hill in 2014 where I mostly sell my paintings, crafts, and apparel on Etsy.  Outside of the home I am an art instructor at a local paint and sip studio here in the Bay Area of California with some pretty amazing co-workers and a fantastic boss.  I love to paint, cycle, craft, watch movies, play guitar and my uke, eat food, drink coffee, hang out with my family and friend, and be silly.

This blog is my way of being able to share my thoughts, ideas, real life, and to help others. I just want to be able to encourage and share.

This is me in a nutshell.
Thanks for taking the time to read!
