Just Me!

Things I think make me who I am:

  • I was born and raised in Maine.  I love the lifestyle here (laid back and slower paced), but I don't love the Maine winter or the lack of good paying jobs.  But I suppose every place has it's pros and cons.
  • I am the youngest girl of an 8 girl family.  (yes, all girls... no boys allowed!  haha)
  • I was married and divorced in my twenties.
  • I am closing the gap on 40 this year.
  • I have three children who showed me how big my capacity for love really is.
  • I have a wonderful loving man (Jeff) who brings out my crazy like no one else.  (I guess that means I have a passion for him.)
  • I'm a big scaredy cat.  (My daughter is a good example of what I'm talking about.  She wants to sled down the hill and climbs into the sled and gets settled, but once she catches a glimpse of the drop she wants OUT of that sled!!  That's so me!!)
  • I think the best things in the world are a good book and a warm cozy bed.
  • I love animals, but cats hold a special spot in my heart.
  • I take awhile to let down my guard and let people in, but once you're my friend, you're my friend for life.

I am sure there is so much more to tell, but I won't bore you with anymore details.  With me, what you see is pretty much what you get.  :)
