I love quiet moments when I can hear myself think. I hate to cook but think I am pretty good at it. My favorite thing to do is snuggle on the couch with my dog. I take photos of anything and everything, especially when there is good lighting. I find beauty in really old things. I think everyone should have at least one living plant in their home; I probably have 40. My family is HUGE. Seriously, I have 31 first cousins. My favorite smell is clean laundry. I am seduced by the color gray. I could live on Indian food. Thai food is a close second. I grew up riding quads and today I cannot comprehend how fearless I was as a child. I have two passions: Photography and animal welfare and when I am able to combine the two, my world stands still.
