Welcome to my happy place where I am Bonfire Designs. I am Mom, Grandmother, Designer, Writer, Coffee Drinker and Pet Lover. I have spent 20 years of my life as a firefighter, very active, very involved proud when I became a Fire Officer. Most of my adult life I have been involved in the medical world as a medical assistant, medical technician, officer manager of a large medical specialty office and almost a decade as an EMT in the emergency services world before I became a firefighter. So proud my older daughter is now a nurse. So proud of my business career younger daughter. Proud of my husband who worked so hard for 40 years of his life to give us a great life and now is able to retire and enjoy it with us. Proud to just try and be the best me at everything I take on.
I believe in family. I believe in love. I am certain everything in life happens for a reason and how you cope and deal with those things makes you the whole of who you are. Whether I am saving lost and abandoned kittens making them family and so happy they have adopted us, or having fun with my granddaughters or taking some quiet time to design new graphics and blog to share - I am me and hope that you will all be you.
I share with you not only the personalized gifts I design and sell, but also my belief that life is personal. No two people are the same and that I think is how it should be. I share my gifts of family. My gifts of firefighter brotherhood, of the dedicated nurses and EMT Paramedics. I share some motivation and inspiration. My journey to healthy fitness both physical and emotional because life while beautiful, is not always easy.
