I’m a not-so-young-anymore mother of two and a devoted wife. I’m a Christian, a vegetarian, a writer and an amateur photographer. I enjoy traveling, the ocean, coffee with friends, Guitar Hero and driving with the windows down. Some of my life goals are to visit every U.S. state, go up in a hot air balloon, maintain a vegetable and herb garden, and be the best wife and mother I can be. Some of my passions include language/linguistics, music performance, fostering effective communication, culture, and reducing my carbon footprint. I also love meeting new people. When I was 14 I had over 30 pen pals from around the world, including: California, Greece, Norway, Indiana, Australia, Ghana, Egypt, England and more. Oh yes – I also adore personal snail mail.
