About Me



Today, one of my fellow bloggers asked if I had an About Me page. I sifted through my posts and didn’t find where I had a separate page dedicated to me, myself and me.

If I had one, it has vanished or perhaps I never created one. Cobwebs in the attic?

So, does that mean I have lost me?  Oh my, where oh where can I be?  I’ll look around and see if I can find myself.  This may take awhile so bear with me.

I asked our cat, Amanda, and she thought I was out on the back porch, sipping coffee.  My husband thought so, as well, and lo and behold, that’s where they found me!  Yep, the three of us can be pretty ditsy, know what I mean?Amanda

Well, now that I am here or there, or wherever, I can ponder this About Me page.

So, here’s a little about me!  Try to handle all of the excitement you are about to experience and enjoy the popcorn.

I retired 2 1/2 years ago, which I spent 40+ years in the corporate world.  I was in commercial insurance, in one form or another, for my entire career.  There were a couple of exceptions when I worked a few side jobs.  One of my side jobs was modeling, which I was involved in for approximately 10 years. I lived in Orlando, FL at the time Disney World was being built, which produced numerous jobs in the modeling and entertainment fields.  The other gig was a short-lived job as a cocktail waitress. No, I did not spill drinks on anyone!  But I was working 2 jobs and the long hours made for a very long and tiring day.My Pix

Now, that I am retired, my hubby and I can enjoy traveling, which you will find a few posts related to places we have visited.  When we’re not traveling, I entertain myself with blogging on WordPress, and publishing on LinkedIn and beBee.com.

Also, my hubby and I love to play computer games, hang out in antique stores, spend time with friends at the local pub, and sit on the back porch while drinking our coffee. Which, by the way, I love coffee, thus the reason for the name of my site (BrewNSpew). I relate just about everything to coffee. See, you can’t say that I didn’t warn you about the excitement. Would you like a cuppa coffee?


We recently sold our house in Florida, which was occupied by renters for three years while we lived in GA. I was relocated to Atlanta by my employer and we liked GA so much, we became permanent residents.

Now that we don’t have to trek back and forth to FL, we will have more time for our travels to Blue Ridge, Georgia – our favorite place to visit.  This quaint little mountain town is about an hour away and it’s a pleasant drive.  We would love to own a cabin there, rather than stay in a hotel and hopefully, this will happen in the near future.  With that said, the hotel  we frequent is very cozy and comfortable, and we enjoy staying there.









Methinks it’s time to wrap this up and I appreciate you visiting. And about me – well, I’m still trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up.

    Hi Eugenia, and thank you so much for taking the time to visit and follow me and the storyhounds. 🙂 I’m with you on the coffee – what writer can live without it? It’s the one thing I refuse to give up.
    Loving the chocolate wallpaper!

    • 02/08/2017 at 3:21 pm

      Thank you for your kind comments. Coffee and chocolate – a good combination.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog 🙂 So do you live around the Blue Ridge now? It does look heavenly.

    • 03/27/2017 at 10:44 am

      We live in Roswell, Ga – about 80 miles from Blue Ridge. It is a charming little town.😃

      • 03/27/2017 at 11:52 am

        How fortunate you are to live in such beautiful surroundings 🙂

  3. 03/27/2017 at 8:19 pm

      Thank you. It is nice to meet you.

    Reblogged this on BrewNSpew.

    Cat’s are very knowledgeable, they appear to be minding their own business but they know exactly what’s going on 😉
    I love that quote too and try to live by it.
    Glad you’re getting time to travel – my husband when asked how he’s enjoying retirement usually quips that he’s so busy he doesn’t know how he ever had time to work! 😄

    • 08/02/2017 at 7:37 pm

      That is a good sign that your husband is that busy. I feel the same way. I like to be busy and not sit around being idle and bored.

      • 08/03/2017 at 4:49 pm

        My dad was made redundant at 59 and was lost without work. Within a year he died suddenly. My husband & I knew we needed to have a plan when he retired early and it’s worked well.

  7. 08/02/2017 at 12:43 pm

    Eugenia, good to read and learn more about the person behind the poetry 🙂

    • 08/02/2017 at 7:38 pm

      Thank you, Davy.

  8. 08/02/2017 at 12:51 pm

    Great to know more about you! Both of us come from BFSI backgrounds.

    • 08/02/2017 at 7:43 pm

      Thank you. Yes, we have that in common. I see that you were in banking.

  9. 08/02/2017 at 2:05 pm

    That was a fun read, Eugenia. Blue Ridge in Georgia sounds and looks like my kinda heaven on earth. Is heaven that pretty, I wonder… Also, Amanda has personality by the looks of it. x

    • 08/02/2017 at 7:48 pm

      I’m glad you enjoyed it. Blue Ridge is a great place – a quaint little mountain town in a beautiful setting. You’re right about Amanda – she has a very sweet personality most of the time – lol.

  10. 08/02/2017 at 6:16 pm

    I live close to you! We love Blue Ridge and enjoy visiting several times a year since it is an easy drive.

    • 08/02/2017 at 7:52 pm

      Wow, how cool. I follow a few bloggers that live in our area. It is an easy drive and we visit Blue Ridge several times a year too. We will be making a trip in the fall.

  11. 08/02/2017 at 10:51 pm

    Not ‘drivel’ at all. I’m so glad you found ‘you’! … It’s nice to have a little more information…. and by the way, I would never even consider being any kind of a waitress because I would spill most of what I served … I am amazed at how well some handle doing it…. Diane

    • 08/14/2017 at 10:45 pm

      I don’t know why but I just saw your comment. Must be the computer gremlins are working overtime. 😉 I didn’t last too long as a waitress. It wasn’t my thing and I am surprised I didn’t drop or spill a tray of food or drinks.

  12. 08/03/2017 at 5:07 am

    Love learning a little about you. by the way, some great photos. If my wife ever retires, we will be moving to the Ozarks. We love the Rockies here in Montana but Missouri is our birthplace.

  13. 08/03/2017 at 9:11 am

Life now is for enjoying and Living… We have both got a similar amount of working days behind our belts..

    Searching for your About Me page adds a whole new meaning to “trying to find yourself.” lol I’ve done the same thing (created pages then forgot all about them.) Love the Maya quote. So true!

    • 08/03/2017 at 10:58 pm

      I’ve changed themes several times and discover pages and links I forgot about. Yes. Maya is my favorite for quotes. Thank you for commenting.

  16. 09/17/2017 at 2:51 pm

    I’m glad you added an About Me page. I went looking for it. I’m even gladder that your cat and husband found you on the back porch with coffee. Sounds perfect.

    • 09/17/2017 at 3:58 pm

      Thank you for reading and commenting. I have lost the About Me page a few times. I change themes frequently, which sometimes it doesn’t work out too well. I’m surprised my blogs haven’t imploded into puddles of spilled ink.

  17. 09/21/2017 at 9:02 pm

    A most beautiful and profound quote by Maya Angelou. Your blog seems warm and inviting. 🙂

    • 09/22/2017 at 10:29 am

      Thank you so much. Yes, I am very fond of Maya Angelou’s work.

    Hey there Eugenia, first, thanks for the follow. As a fellow retiree I can relate to most of what you have to say. In fact, I do not know how I ever fitted work in! I’m far too busy doing other more interesting things – and having cups of coffee.

    • 02/26/2018 at 10:20 am

      Thank you for commenting and sharing those virtual cups of coffee. 🙂
