About Me


#beautynearme #thebeautynearme

I’m a Dream catcher, Life lover, Health pursuer, Beauty finder, Entrepreneur, Artist, Wife,  Mother, Grammy, Explorer,…

The discipline of seeing beauty changes me emotionally, physically & spiritually. Being a “beauty finder” enriches. It’s a way of life.

It’s not as physically demanding as it used to be, being the mother of five (ages 19 to 26), who have all “flown the coop”. I’ve had the joy of welcoming a son-in-law and daughter-in-law and now 2 grandbabies into my heart. I am rich beyond words. Yes, we have our issues and hurdles like the rest, but I think “beauty finding”, within & without is a worthy calling.

My husband and I are “RV nomads” now, spanning our time in MO, FL and CO. Talk about beauty?!?!  We enjoy the beautiful trails, mountain sunsets and open prairie in CO. We love spending time with the children and grands in MO. We lived in FL for the majority of our married life. (My parents are in the panhandle and my in-laws spend their winters in Land O’ Lakes). So yes, the beach is ALWAYS calling my name!

I believe in people and am convinced that they are the most extravagant beauty I EVER experience. Beauty Near Me is my eclectic (and colorful) pursuit of all things lovely in life. My thoughts and musings, artwork, photography, great product finds, reviews, fashion insights for women over 40, healthy lifestyle routines and relationship gold nuggets, all get shared here in this little spot of internet “earth”. Welcome to my secret garden.

Feel free to to contact me.

I’d love to chat

    At my dad’s funeral three years ago, he wanted the poem “The Dash” read. What a neat title for a blog!
