WHO I AM…(stream-of-consciousness style for the sake of honesty):Photo on 2012-03-23 at 12.27

One part teacher, Three parts dreamer, 1/2 cup wreckless inspiration.  Smiling because I’m happy.  Laughing because I’m scared.  Breathing because I’m blessed.  Doesn’t wake up without Starbucks.  Doesn’t go down without a fight.  Groovin’ in between.  Mommy, writer, wife, daughter, sister.  Doesn’t mind losing her mind to follow her heart.  BELIEVER.
