Welcome to S-T-E-D-E, my very own passion project filled with unique and engaging content. Explore my site and all that I have to offer; perhaps S-T-E-D-E will ignite your own passions as well.

I am dedicating this to my kids - Justin & Samantha who always support me and encourage me. 

Also to Scarlet who inspires me to be a better person. #NonniesLadyBug and now my newest little Grand - Baby Jameson who is so sweet and wonderful. Being Nonnie to these two is such a huge blessing!
