Fun Facts

I am naturally a smartass and laugh through tough times. A way to my heart isn't with food or diamonds. Buy me some Post-it notes, and I'm a happy camper. Anyone else? 


While it may not always be a pretty sight, as a music junkie, you can find me dancing in my kitchen. I'm not saying I would die without my coffee, but someone else might. 

As an empath and a Virgo, I am a feeler of all the feels. I have nightly conversations with Archangel Michael. He and I are besties. My two kids and two fur babies keep me busy. Call me crazy, but I love eating steamy hot french fries with ice cream. I can't be the only one that does this. Right?
