The specifics:
▪I’m a proud work-at-home Mom to the best Kid ever, Wife to a badass Veteran, Pet Guardian to the cutest Furbabies, Spiritual Being, and Loyal Friend. I’m also a teacher, singer, music addict, crafter, reader, writer, hiker, goofball, empath, lover, goddess, super weird dork, believer in Karma and good vibes, giver, genuine INFJ-T, New Mexican, an introvert, an old soul, and one perfectly imperfect, wicked rad, totally awkward, and somewhat klutzy human being.
▪I am beyond truly Blessed. I love my beautiful life, and every amazing person in it! I’m the happiest and most loved woman there is; all of my dreams and wishes have come true, and my life is exactly what I’d always wanted. I couldn’t be more grateful for my countless blessings, and every breath I take. I’m living my very own version of Heaven on Earth!
▪I love my life, Family, and friends; music and singing; yarn and yarn crafts; teaching; nature; books; orange (it’s my favorite color, scent, and flavor); Orphan Black; rain; photography; animals, Batman (I’m BatMom!); cooking; Autumn; hiking; burritos and tacos; Harry Potter (Ravenclaw, here!); all things rainbow; sunflowers; cherries; the 1950s; Halloween; pizza; the moon and stars; writing; classic cars; Deadpool; and adding more love, acceptance, decency, kindness, and compassion to the universe.
▪I am LGBTQIA-friendly (I’m bisexual), understanding of mental illness (I’ve struggled with anxiety and depression for most of my life, and have a history of suicide attempts and self-harm), and always here for anyone who needs to talk about anything – with zero judgments. Sending love and light, and positive vibes, to all. You are loved, and you matter!

Favorite quotes:
“Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.” – William Shakespeare
“Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King Jr.
“It’s not our job to play judge and jury, to determine who is worthy of our kindness and who is not. We just need to be kind, unconditionally and without ulterior motive, even – or rather, especially – when we’d prefer not to be.” – Josh Radnor
