What you will find here at StephCentral is an ongoing variety of things that I am working on and are interested in. I love social media and I would love to connect with you on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram. I invite you to visit my crafty blog- Lulu’s Cottage.

I look forward to getting to know you.
If you are curious, here is a little bit of my background.
First and foremost, I’m a family person. I’m happily married, raised three great kids and have two beautiful granddaughters and one very precious grandson (so far). My house is quiet, except for two cats and three dogs that provide daily entertainment. I love the country life. It took me a few years to say that and mean it. I was raised in suburbia for the most part, where everyone had a similar house and yard. I have found that once you go country, you can never go back!
I turned 50 in 2009 and it feels like I started a new chapter in my life. The first 50 were great in many ways and I had my fair share of struggles (I may have even had a few extra thrown in). But now, I feel like I finally know who I am. It seems like I was always something to someone else. Someone’s daughter, then someone’s wife, then someone’s mom. Now, I feel like I’m me first, then I’m all of those things.
The first 50 in a flash; moved a LOT as a kid, married the love of my life, raised 3 great kids, have already been blessed with 2 wonderful granddaughters and grandson (so far), had a career in the beauty business for 17 years as an image consultant, lived in the city, settled in the country….it seems like those first 50 were on FAST FORWARD most of the time. My house was always a mess (as opposed to now, when you may just find it clean and pretty…sometimes), I was always driving someone, somewhere. I was always looking for someone’s something.
I live in the country and as a former city girl, I will tell you (shhhh it’s a secret), country is better! I live in the mountains and it’s like living in a park. I can’t see a neighbor from my house, so it feels private and secluded. I enjoy the seasons and having nature around everywhere I look.
But, now. Ah. My nest is empty. And, not in a bad way. I see it as a blank canvas of possibilities! My husband and I have a photography studio in Jackson, California. We LOVE to take pictures! We have a busy lifestyle and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Bring on the travel!!
Thank your for stopping by my website and blog. I look forward to meeting you!
