I have been a lensmaster for over seven years and have over 260+ lenses so I guess it is a combination of love and addiction. But Squidoo is not my only internet love. For ten years I was the editor of the Large and Lovely site at BellaOnline. I have a personal website, and a six year old plus size shopping blog. On the personal front, I have been married for over fifteen years and we had the privilege...

    Thank you for visiting my writer's gift-list lens and sharing a comment! I, too, book hotel stays for myself, although I usually drag my best friend along, who is also a writer. Yes, it's wonderful to sometimes just "get away!" Nothing beats the ambiance of an inspiring environment, and the TIME to bathe in it and infuse it into our own writings. Anyway, blah, blah, blah. Looks like you are very successful on Squidoo, and I wish you many more future successes!
