I am music-lovin, silly, and loyal.
I am originally from Chicago, so a Midwestern girl to the core but I definitely have a lil naughtiness to me. I love music, have to have music around me everyday, I love to laugh, Family Guy is a favorite. I love watching movies and reading books. I am a published poet and got to do book readings in Borders and Barnes and Noble back in Chicago. I enjoy photography, live shows, coffee with french vanilla coffeemate... I have a mug fetish. I love novelty mugs, its kind of a compulsion. I adore my family and friends. I like burying myself in pillows(6) when I sleep and I love tattoos... I have 3.
One of which is a Great White Shark. Oh, I love sharks and am planning to take a Great White Shark dive sometime this year. I am also a trained massage therapist and have a BA in Music Business management.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to figure that out. :D But I am having a lot of fun right now, trying new things, saying yes to as many invites as possible... my next goal is to travel outside of the country, yes, sad to say, I have never gotten out of the US. But its about damn time. I am saving up for a trip to Ireland this coming Fall.
I’m really good at
writing, photography, making my friends laugh. I am an awesome gift-giver. I am really good at massage therapy. There are other things, but its more fun for people to discover them.
The first things people usually notice about me
my lips, my hair and my laugh.

novelty coffee mugs

out with friends or chilling at home.
