Joined 3 years ago from Canada. Last activity 6 hours ago.

Welcome the online Hubpages Portfolio of prairieprincess.   I am so glad you dropped by. 

I will tell you a little about myself. I am very happily married with two stepkids, two nieces and three cats. 

I have always loved writing, and learned about literature at a young age,  from my Mother, who was a published poet.  

A year and half ago, I ran across Hubpages and was smitten. If you are here for the first time, I hope you find something to inspire or encourage you. New readers are always welcome and comments are treasured!

Feel free to e-mail me personally if you wanted to comment more in-depth on any of the topics found in my articles.

 Take care and God Bless You!
