*Changing blog “decor” because the previous theme was just…well…damn. So THANK YOU for your patience. Since you’ve come this far, KEEP READING! Sit back and stay a while!
Hi! I’m Joani! A social media personality as well as an author, air-guitar rock star, actor (voice-over as well…you should hear my Russion accent! I’ve got those “H” and “R” sounds down! Just don’t ask me to say anything that doesn’t have an “H” or “R” in it), motivator, serial entrepreneur, mother, wife, friend, lover (very good lover) and dabbling ‘Jill of all trades’.
What ABOUT me? Well, I have “Random Acts of Kindness” written on my calendar and on my To-Do list every single day and when I was a kid, I used to ask Santa for a pack of bacon every single year! #truestory.
I have to tell you, though, that I’m not the most organized person in the world (but did I tell you that I was a very good lover?) which is why it has taken me so long to set up this blog! Placing everything into little categories, individual pages and lets not forget the url to a million links, page attributes (parent or no parent pages…is it really necessary? That just creates more sub-categories so I’m thinking my no-parent pages are pretty well adjusted and will turn out alright, no? Hhhhh) finding the right layout, setting up plug-ins (what the HAIL is a plug-in as opposed to a widget as opposed to an app, anyway?). What else? Oh! The writing!! #duh
I’m a right-brain thinker…we’re creatively unorganized, good-lovers (no, I’m not going to let that go…it’s pertinent information, per my husband) and THAT’S why it’s taken me so long to get to this point. BUT I wasn’t going to give up because the blog is a “page” of my dream to entertain, inspire and be free-to-be-me! But if you understand anything about me and my writing; understand this: If I had 8 hrs. to write a story, I’d spend 6 hrs. sharpening my pencil. It doesn’t affect the finished product…it’s just who I am!
I’m an advocate of all things positive. I work hard to make the world a better place (starting with my world because if I’m not happy, how can I make others happy). I’m a mom above ALL else to “Irish Triplets” (well, they’re mostly Native American but you know what I mean…I gave birth to twins, then a week after their 1st birthday, I had my youngest child. Yes, 3 babies ages 1 and UNDER)! On occasion I’ll send someone to school in footed pajamas erroneously because I thought that it was pajama day and I’ve been known to place a child or three in two different sized socks. I’m making memories, damn it! ; )

Hi! I’m Joani and I’d like to tell you a story…
