Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. For thirty-five years, I lived in the most beautiful area in Central Valley of California in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains minutes from the Sequoia National Park. As a child I moved from Indiana to Oregon. With my first husband I moved from Oregon to Colorado to California. Every time we moved, it hurt so much to leave friends. I never wanted to move again. After Mark passed, I married again. I told Vince that I could never budge from my roots in California. He said he loved the high desert. I don't think he ever thought he would realize his dream. In November, 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my review here on Doris’ excellent book, Marsha. And thank you so much for your kind compliment. You’re such a doll! Oh, and sorry I couldn’t thank you when you left comment that you had posted this, I found the comment in spam! It allowed me to move it out of spam and post it but not reply. Sheesh, these gremlins in WP can get the best of us sometimes. 🙂 I’m sharing around! Thanks again. ❤

    1. I’ve noticed that it’s been up all over the world! You are welcome to any of mine, too, by the way. I need to establish a much more open door policy. I can’t keep up with a schedule by myself. And it helps others to have exposure to different readers, as you know.

    1. I hope it does soon. You are so talented. Renovations take so much longer than you ever expect them to take, don’t they? Are you working someplace else in the meantime?
