I'm a romantic and my own worse critic; a left-handed, dry humored, quirky wallflower with a serious bucket list that includes traveling whenever I can and trying new things, even if they scare me. I coupon, cruise, shop consignment stores and am addicted to Chick-fil-A. Hobbies are occasional gardening which I stink at, decorating which I also stink at, and running which is touch and go.
I like to hike and scuba dive. I love the mountains and the sea. I believe in a loving, patient, and forgiving God. I love people and care about others around me deeper than I can sometimes express. Life for me has been an incredible journey of family, friends, people, places, and discovering things both old and new. I'm a writer, but I'm also a friend, a sister, a daughter, an aunt, a mother, a wife, and much more.
