Wow...how to sum up "me" in just a tiny little space...
I'm 38 (yes, really...and if that blows your mind, just hang on a minute...it gets crazier!), married to a pretty cool guy, biological mother to 3 great children and stepmother to 4 rotten ones (just kidding, they're awesome too!), and about to become a grandma for the first time (I told you it gets crazy!)
The Gory Details:
I'm crazy (in a good way!), passionate about life, even more passionate about music, and still more passionate about my faith, but you'll never see me cramming my beliefs down anyone's throat. That's not to say I won't climb the occasional soap box, but I believe that everyone has opinions, and everyone's journey is theirs alone. We're only in the lives of others to help them along that road somehow, so wasting time debating stuff that doesn't matter seems like...well...a waste of time!
Why I'm Here:
I've often said that the reason I'm a "big girl" is that there is too much personality here to cram into a tiny little body, so I needed a bigger one. Well, I've decided it's time to consolidate. Maybe some more efficient storage methods are necessary!
WELL! I think that sums it up pretty well. Pleased to meet you, and thanks for reading! Hope to see you around the boards!
I want to increase my physical activity level and be more mindful about what exactly I'm putting into my body.

Finished my first 5K training program and now I'm hooked on running! I run 3 days a week, cross train 3 days, and rest for 1 day. As far as eating goes, I try to just keep track of what goes into my body, and keep it as natural and not processed as I possibly can.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out."
