Me and my boy!

Mom, artist, lifecoach. Working on figuring out what to do next!

My name is Deb Taphouse. I am a 45 year old woman, single, widowed, worked 1/2 my life for a Fortune 500 company, survived the WTC disaster, and recently became a parent to a wonderful boy. Born and raised in Queens and Long Island NY, and now living in Sarasota FL for the past couple of years. After 22 years of employment with American Express, my job was relocated to another state, and I got the severance package I was wishing for (jokingly, I thought). A  year off paid, during which I have been trying to decide what I’m going to do for the rest of my life. Of course, 3 weeks after my last day, the stock market crashed. (You see how important I was to corporate America?) Working on figuring out what brings me joy, what gives joy to others, and hoping that I’m not wasting this gift of time. I never could have imagined I could be a single stay at home Mom- even for a year or two. Thank you God! Now I have to figure out what I want to do before I run out of money- trying to have faith that there’s a plan and the right thing will work out, it always does.

I love traveling, art, photography, spirituality, God, gardening, self-help books, novels, my family, learning how to be a good Mom, painting, decorating, cooking, quilting (that’s new!) organizing things, spreadsheets, calculating, analyzing and the list goes on.

Why am I writing a blog? Well, why not? There’s alot of things I’m exploring that I want to share with others- things I find inspirational, things that have helped me, people I admire, stuff that makes me cry. Most of all, just living it up- having fun with my son, and trying to appreciate it all. Who knows, maybe I want to be a writer when I grow up.
