ABOUT ME

Hello, I am a midlife wife, mom  and  first time recent Gammy to a granddaughter.    I work full time in a medical office and  am caregiver to my mom who has  vascular dementia. Her name is Nona. Communicating with a loved one who has dementia takes patience and practice. I fail on a daily basis. My name is Annette. I was born and raised in Asheville, NC. I am a skin care junkie, love hair products,  anti-aging tips,  Oprah, travel, movies, books, coffee, wine, animals, flowers, DIY home decor  and most of all my dear family.  I am new to affiliate marketing and enjoy telling you about products that I love.
