About Me / Disclosures

Hi Friends ~

My name is Sonya Dykeman, and I am the mastermind behind the Library Patch! I am an elementary school "liberrian" ... just ask my kiddos and they will tell you! I manage the coolest place in school {Yes! Yes, I do have air conditioning.} I love what I do every day. The kids are the best part of my job. There truly isn't a day at work where I don't laugh.

I am mom to two children who have grown into some incredibly interesting young adults. My son is a lineman for our local electrical company, and my daughter is a new college graduate and aspiring costume designer. Dinner conversations are never dull. I am also wife to a pretty great guy who is patient with my passion for books and technology {Both of which he has to pull me away from periodically.} We love to take our Jeep out on the beautiful trails of the Adirondack Mountains.

While I wait for a couple of grand kids, our fur baby gets spoiled rotten. Bella is infinitely patient while I plug away at my computer and always up for a game of catch! And cheese ... she has a cheese problem.

On the rare occasion that you can find me without my nose in a book or tapping away at my computer, I love to dig my hands in the dirt. There is something supremely satisfying about gardening! When the garden {and I} are hibernating in the winter months, I crochet and like to stitch on Bucilla Christmas stockings.

However, if given the opportunity, I would totally jump on that wagon! My posts will remain true and objective. They are not {nor am I}easily influenced by outside sources. Whether you like it or not, it's all me!
