I was never anything remarkable.

I was more the stay-in-the-shadows type. I had a shining moment or two in life, but honestly they were really pretty rare. I was OK with that, I didn’t feel a need to be in the spotlight. I was OK with hiding.

I always wanted to be a homemaker with a beautiful home to take care of. From the days of my cardboard Barbie houses until now, my home has symbolized a place of safety and beautiful refuge from the world. I could do my thing and I didn’t really have to impact anyone outside of my family or guests. I liked life that way. Cozy, comfortable. Safe.
