Good morning everyone! You may have seen my post from earlier in the week, if not you can view it HERE. I am very excited to introduce you to Aleta, who is not only my nearest and dearest best friend, someone I dreamed up The Cosy Book Shoppe with, but also stepping into a guest blogging role here!
Here is her introductory post for you!
My name is Aleta and I’m a full-time single mom to one awesome teenage daughter. We live in South Carolina where I work a full-time, eight-to-five office job and my daughter attends school. Juggling work, school activities, extracurricular activities like sports, church, etc. can be quite a chore, especially considering that I am still “chauffeur” to my daughter until she hits driving age. Therefore her hobbies are my hobbies, and I am making it a point to enjoy these years and this time with her as long as this “season” of life lasts!
As for my own interests, I enjoy cooking, reading, and spending time with my big Italian family. I feel equally at home in an antique store or on the beach. (Those are probably my two “happy places” apart from my cozy home.) I grew up in the Washington D.C. area which resulted in a deep love of history. I also love music, and have a deep appreciation for art in all its forms. (Fun fact: I was the vocalist for my college’s jazz band!)
