For many years, I have been a registered republican, but in 2016, I became an Independent. I am a grandmother ( Italian descent) from New Jersey who lives in Florida, and who has retired from sales in the insurance, consumer products and travel industries. As a military brat, I have traveled and lived abroad for several years. I did go to High School and College in New Jersey. My good friends are in general from either New York or New Jersey. I have 2 adult children whom I admire tremendously with one 14 year old grandson and one gorgeous 3 year old granddaughter. My major hobbies are now blogging, reading, spending time with family and friends, shopping and traveling.
