Allegro non tanto is an Italian musical term which means "fast, but not too fast" which is how I try to live my life these days. I wear many hats: wife, mother of four, piano teacher, avid reader and gardener. When my youngest daughter was diagnosed with cancer in 2007, I decided that life was way too precious not to live out my dream of becoming a writer. So now I''m wearing a blogging hat, and it's so comfortable, I may never take it off.
I'm the woman you see at the grocery store: no make-up, hair in a haphazard pony tail, worn jeans and a stained t-shirt. What you don't see is that I'm complicated and interesting on the inside--just like you!
I'm the mother of four incredible children, the wife of Rene, and a friend to many. I've been a piano teacher for over twenty years, and when I'm not being paid to nag other people's children to practice, I'm either tending to my flower garden, or somewhere with my nose in a book.
I'm adding a little writing to the mix now, just to keep things interesting....
