Facts About Me

Lind Point Trail, Virgin Islands National Park, St. John
Ten Facts (in no particular order)
Fact #1:  I am a lover.  All the hate in the world makes me sad.  I just think everyone should start giving out free hugs to each other.

Fact #2:  I am a student.  Currently I am pursuing a degree in Family Social Science major and Family Violence Prevention minor.  I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I'm trusting there will be light at the end of the tunnel.

Fact #3:  I am one the luckiest woman in the world to have my wonderful husband John and my baby Comet.  I couldn't get through every day without them both.  I love going on vacation with John because it provides unadulterated time for each other.

Fact #4:  Music is one of my passions.  I am connected to some form of music most of the day.  I love to sing and play the piano and guitar.  I love singing Blink 182 duets with John.

Fact #5:  I love Jesus.  I am so thankful for his hope, compassion and justice.  As hard as it is sometimes, I try to live my life to his standard and let him lead me where he sees fit.

Fact #6:  I love giving food to the homeless people.  I love volunteering at Feed My Starving Children.  I love hanging out with the high school kids from my church family.  I love to make cookies for my neighbors.

Fact #7:  I don't crave the latest technology, or new clothes or shoes.  I love the GoodWill and Half Price Books.  I'm cheap.  It irritates John sometimes and I keep telling him I could be a wife that spends all his money.  

Fact #8:  I am a photographer.  I love capturing the perfect moment, the perfect emotion.  It was hard to find a picture of myself because I am always the one behind the camera.

Fact #9:  I have learned to love hockey because it's John's passion.  I LOVE watching him play.  It's so graceful and powerful at the same time.  He thinks I'm crazy when I talk about it, but the sport is like a dance that a player has to practice for years to perfect.  I love playing with John too.  It's so romantic to go out on a local rink by ourselves. Makes my heart flutter.

Fact #10:  I crave face time with my family and friends.  I wish I had more time for it and I miss them when we haven't been able to talk.  I love laughter and good conversations. 

I want to cheat and add more because my brain juices are flowing, but I'll stop.  I hope you learned something new about me :)
