I was born in 1976. That year marked the 200th anniversary of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence. My birth certificate even has a bicentennial mark on.
I love to read. My favorite authors are Stephen King, James Patterson & Danielle Steel.
If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would go to Dubai. Such opulence!
I grew up in a very small town called Flat Lick. I love the view of the Kentucky mountains from my Grandma’s front porch swing and spent many summers on it with a Reader’s Digest.
I love bubble baths and take them as often as I can, with loads of bubbles. It’s my favorite way to relax.
My favorite movie is Dirty Dancing and I’ve watched it over 100 times.
I have a horrible fear of snakes. Just the thought of them causes nightmares.
My most prized possession is my Grandmother’s souvenir spoon collection that’s hanging in my dining room. I bought her a souvenir spoon when I went to the Bahamas and it took off from there! Anytime someone went out-of-town, they picked a new spoon for her. Her spoons range from Alaska to Florida with many in between.
I love music and listen to it constantly, at home, work and in my car. My tastes range from rock to hip hop, hold the country though unless it’s some old Garth Brooks or Reba.
My favorite subject in school was math except Geometry. I struggled with shapes!
One thing I always forget to pack on trips is my underwear or toothpaste. Not sure how it happens but 9 out of ten times, those are the items I’m rushing out to buy.
Fall is my favorite season, hands down! I love seeing the leaves change colors, those cool, crisp mornings and anything pumpkin flavored!
Patience is not a virtue of mine. I’m working on being better at it but I usually seek instant gratification and it always comes back to bite me in the butt!!
Everything happens for a reason and that is my life motto. I always remind myself that our timing may not be God’s timing and to allow him to work out his plan, patiently.
My favorite holiday is Christmas, not because of the gifts but I love the happiness it brings out in people. I love the lights and always wish for snow.
When I was a kid, I wanted to be an attorney.
The best thing that has happened to me this year has been meeting a really wonderful guy who has turned out to be one of my best friends. He’s always encouraging and supportive, which means a lot to me. I thank God for him everyday.
I love balloons and would pick them any day over flowers!
One of my favorite healthy meals would be a baked chicken with Mrs. Dash & steamed veggies (broccoli, carrots and cauliflower) along with some Halo Top ice cream. Yum!
If I could look back and tell my teenage self one thing, it would be learn not to sweat the small things. Be gentle on yourself, enjoy each day!
