Hi, My name is Annette & I am the wife & soul-mate to my amazing husband of 30 years, Phillip. We just celebrated 30 wonderful years of marriage. We have been blessed with 6 wonderful children: 4 sons & 2 daughters & now even 3 daughter-in-laws. But let me take you back to the beginning...
As a young girl, I always loved to travel & make handmade creations along the way. Being born & raised in Sonoma County, California, I had many beautiful places to go within a short distance: skiing in Tahoe, walking on the beaches near Bodega Bay, or taking the ferry across San Francisco Bay. But it was the long RV trips across the U.S. in the summertime that gave me the time to create. My creations started with sketches & drawings, key chains & necklaces & finally designing & sewing Halloween costumes & formal gowns during my high school years.
Upon graduation, I moved away & met my amazing husband the very 1st day of college. We were married the following summer to the song 'ALWAYS & FOREVER'. We were then blessed with our 1st 2 sons during my junior & senior years of college. I then became a stay @ home mom for 13 years creating elaborate Halloween costumes(winning many contests & awards) for our then multiplying family. And I do mean multiplying! We had a set of twin boys & finally 2 daughters during this time. Due to the fact that we had alot of mouths to feed(lol), I decided to go back to school & follow in my husband's path & became a Respiratory Therapist just as he had. He worked days & I worked 12 hrs @ night Fri-Sun so that I could be home with him & the kids during the week & so that we never had a need for daycare.
After 15 years in the medical field & changing medicare laws, we decided to leave that career & continue F/T with remodeling homes & designing landscapes for our P/T Real Estate Investments we had been doing for the previous 5 years. This gave us the time, with each other & our children, that we loved the most.
We love to travel often by RV to many beautiful places so we chose to live in an area that we could go to the beach or mountains within a short drive. We travel to many places including to Canada a few times & try to see as many places as possible along the way. We have shared our creativity with our kids along the way & have taken photos, filmed our trips, designed jewelry, drawn landscapes, & even visited the Portland Science & Industry Museum. And with our family having New Years in Sonoma County with 2 of my sisters & their families; we spend time doing puzzles, filming family movies, & talking about jewelry creations.
Besides the joy of always being creative, there are a few things that still carry on ALWAYS & FOREVER... Our love for each other & the love that we share for our children...
ALWAYS & FOREVER,
ANNETTE
