35 year old lover of all things yellow, vintage, and cozy. Sometimes excited, sometimes mellow; almost always a bit high-strung and/or anxious. Always hopeful, constantly thankful, mostly content. Mom, sister, daughter, niece, grand-daughter, cousin, friend...each roll is a constant evolution, often needing improvement and forgiveness, but never lacking in love or good intentions. I wear my heart on my sleeve, am more emotional than I would like, easily distracted, sometimes lazy, a little too serious when it comes to myself, quick to forgive yet slow to forget. I find too much significance in dates which leads me to live a bit too much in the past. Letter-writer, movie lover, t.v. watcher, book reader, magazine flipper, journal collector, eternal optimist, hopeless romantic, aspiring writer, coffee lover. I love milk chocolate, good wine, hot baths, beautiful beaches, laughter, sunshine, the feel of the car after it has sat in the sun on a cool fall day, daisies, simplicity, holding hands, really good hugs, playing the piano, random conversations, and traveling. I fell in love with Paris, am most comfortable in a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt, can't cook to save my life, am hopelessly in love with my little girl, love my cat but still think often about getting another dog, have grown to love our guinea pig, miss my Gran more than I ever imagined, try very hard to live with no regrets, leave the judging to God, am fairly open-minded, stubborn at times, love Jesus and the gift of grace (Lord knows I need it), and am a train wreck at times. I have the gift of seeing the best in others and am the best cheerleader for those I love.
