About Me

Hello everyone!  I'm Rocki and if you want to know about me in a nutshell: proud mom, married to my best friend, Buddhist, practice peace and compassion; believe in equality and marriage for ALL people; I'm a birder; am simple, casual, thrifty, rustic, raw vegan, gluten-free, clutz; love the ocean, my pool, nature, tattoos, humor; a self-taught metal artisan and much more.  I'm also a Survivor (Breast Cancer & Melanoma).  Basically I'm just a happy gal livin' this precious life one moment at a time.

Okay, so this pic is a few years old but it is one of many of my favorites of me and my boys: Jeremy & Jason.  Jeremy came home for a visit from Portland and we had a surprise party for him! Oh and yes, that is metal in my mouth, which the braces have since been removed (big grin).

My boys are my lifeline and they mean the world to me.  My unconditional love & support for them will never cease - I'm extremely proud to be their mom!

And here is the love of my life, beat to my heart, best friend, soul mate and life partner over and over, Mark.  I don't know where I would be without him.  As of 2014, we've been truly happily married for almost 20 years.  You never see one without the other as we do everything together and wouldn't have it any other way.  We started out as best friends and still are today.

 My motto for many years has been:
 Never Give Up!
 No matter if it is a goal to reach or one of many obstacles to overcome that life throws at you - with a positive attitude, strength, determination, faith, willpower and the love and support of family and friends, you will get through it - usually with a better outcome.

Peace, Rocki
