This is my life, transcribed.

I love to connect with others through my writing. I'm inspired by personal relationships, working on my well-being, capturing the life events that shape who I'm becoming—
and hoping to inspire and empower others in the process. 

Want more details? Here are some fun facts: 


My dreams are big—always have been, always will be. 

I almost always hate surprises because I prefer to be prepared. 


I am a creature of habit, but I also get bored very easily. 

I am fiercely protective of my friends and family — and would do anything to keep them from being hurt. 


I am a caffeine addict who loves almost any kind of latte and am a sucker for the pretty designs in the froth.


I am especially skilled at opening a bottle of champagne because of extensive experience. 

I love any and all kinds of cheese, and firmly believe that a good cheese board can turn a good night into a fabulous one.

I love Friday nights around a fire (or on the patio) with my family.


I absolutely love to give gifts, but haven’t fully gotten over the fear of receiving them. 

I am a firm believer in the fact that birthdays are special — it's the only day that's all about you. I think we should embrace them and celebrate as many as we can. 

I know that the support of real friends and family can get you through the darkest of times. 

I am a hopeless romantic, and love reading poetry that makes my heart melt. 


I think that raw honesty and selfless love are not easy to find or give away. 

I believe that prayer is powerful. 

I think that life is beautiful and we should take as many pictures along the way as we can. 

I flourish in sunshine and believe in the healing power of the beach and being outdoors. 

I love gardens full of flowers — especially sunflowers — and have a special place in my heart for butterflies.


I am a terrible insomniac, but some of my best writing has come from sleepless nights. 

I live for planning and hosting parties and the excitement of celebrating life events with those we love. 

I love movies that scare the hell out of me and have a special affinity for apocalyptic zombie movies. 

I find writing therapeutic and it has helped me through some difficult times. I am always humbled when I hear that my writing has helped others, too.

I love music and singing (mostly in my car), and the way some songs can instantly bring you back to a certain place or time. 


I sometimes have a difficult time in large crowds or coming up with small talk. No matter hold old I get, I still have to force myself not to be a wallflower.

I want life to slow down so I can enjoy each and every moment and try to remind myself to pause and appreciate everything and everyone around me.


I long for fun, food and adventure in new places, and try to travel at least once a year to a place I've never been before.
