I’m so pretty

leaves fall to and fro

silent hush harmonious

autumn hues tawny

About Me

Hello Everyone!

Here’s just a little bit about me!

I was born and raised in Orlando, FL, where I lived for 32 years before moving to the South Florida area. I spent a few years in Ft. Lauderdale and then trekked across the state to Tampa, FL  I didn’t care for Tampa, because I’m an east coast gal, and I moved back to the South Florida area where I lived for 10 years.

After a life-changing event, which was only the beginning of several major changes in my life, I moved to Marlton, NJ. I stayed for 2 years and then returned to Florida, residing in Jacksonville, FL. From there I was relocated to Atlanta, GA by my employer.

I spent 40+ years in the corporate world and retired in 2012. My career industry was commercial insurance where I was an underwriter – yep, one of those people that analyze risks in order to place insurance coverage with an insurance company.

There was a time when I worked a couple of side jobs. One of my side gigs was modeling. While I lived in Orlando, FL, Disney World was being constructed, which created various opportunities in modeling and other forms of entertainment. The other gig was a fleeting activity as a cocktail waitress, which was fun but not my cup of tea. So, I remained in the insurance industry because it was my bread and butter, which carried me until I retired.

To make a very long story short, my last employer was repositioning themselves, which resulted in closing locations and transferring those employees willing to relocate. My family, which consists of my husband, Paul and our cat, Amanda moved to Atlanta, GA.

Callie – adopted 2/14/2020

Well, we found Georgia a delightful place to live and made it our permanent home. We love to trek to quaint little mountain towns, which are only an hour away from our cozy little abode. The drive is lovely, and we love to take in the scenery along the way. Eventually, we want to own a cabin in one of the several small towns we enjoy.

A gander at me –
I enjoyed a dedicated career in the insurance industry for over 20 years being rewarded both professionally and personally. Now it’s time for me to follow my dreams by doing things I enjoy…spending time with family, learning, sharing, traveling, writing poetry, and encouraging others to pursue their goals. My writing and creative endeavors can be found at my blogs, Eugi’s Causerie I and Eugi’s Causerie II, where I have gathered a following of kindred souls who share my passion for writing. I have authored Fanciful Delights and Mama, me and Mother NatureI am also a published author on Spillwords, PoetrySoup and beBee.com.
