Sherry B. (Street Articles Author)

Hey there,

My name is Sherry or here at Street Articles, Sherry B. I was born and raised in upper Michigan also known, at least to us locals, as the UP. I am married with two kids, a six-year-old son and a 16-year-old daughter. We also have four dogs, two guinea pigs, and a cat living in our home. It can be quite entertaining at times. Other times, it can get a little frustrating when the dogs, especially, love to follow you everywhere, up and down the stairs, answer the phone, to the bathroom, and so on.

Some of my favorite things are dogs, horses, camping, reading, music, guitars, playing games with the kids, surfing the web, learning how to do new things, and drawing and painting. I just wish there was more time in the day to do all of this! Time is so short! As it is, I already hardly sleep, just to squeeze it all into the day.

Best wishes to all.
