doing history and research by way of the Internet. I use to
work for a large marketing firm, where I achieved most of
my experience in that realm.
When I met
my husband approximately five years ago, he knew I already
had a love in my life. He was warned to deal with it. When
he met "Velvet," he fell in love with her also.
When we were married, it was the 'three' of us. When we went
into driving cross country, it was the three of us.
