About Candy

Candy ReidI’m a southern girl who loves the simple things in life. Dirt road drivin’, Sunday afternoon nappin’, back yard swingin’, and sunset watchin’ do my heart a world of good.

I’ve been married to my best friend and the love of my life since 1989 and I’m successfully navigating my way through raising 4 children.

(And by “successfully” I mean I haven’t lost my mind and all of the kids still have their limbs attached – although there was that one incident involving the youngest child’s finger and a bathroom door, but I digress.)

My oldest son has safely found his way out of the nest to become a productive member of society and the second oldest is perched on the edge of said nest testing his wings recently married a beautiful young woman who I am proud to call my daughter-in-love. I’m finding that I’m much more relaxed on this parenting adventure than I was years ago…perspective, maybe?

I’m thankful to be a child of God and I’m forever amazed that the God who knows me inside and out chooses to love me still.

I’m also a bit of a word-nerd (ok, maybe more than a “bit” – I confess I actually consider making lists of homophones to be entertaining), a lover of books and chocolate, a survivor of cancer, an author, and a hula hoop maker.
