I’m Mama to 3 boys.
This baby factory only makes boys apparently. There’s A LOT of testosterone flowing in my house. I fall in the toilet regularly and spend a good deal of time with my shirt pulled up over my nose. I don’t concern myself with menial things like…Property damage or 45 weekly trips to the grocery. In all seriousness, I LOVE my boys. And I mean I LOVE them. Like crazy. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Parentheses are my fave.
I use them A LOT. I find it to be the most efficient (and satisfying) way to include sarcasm, snark, and not-so-subliminal messages in what I write. And sometimes it’s just all about me!
I can be dramatic
(ok, fine, it’s true).
I use words like “EVER” and “ALWAYS” and “IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD” all the time. There are a surprising number of things that are the BEST (or worst) EVER. Trust me. I swear.
I compete in a ladies fishing tournament every year – it is one of the most treasured experiences of my life and I look forward to it all year long. It takes place in Texas and I’m one of just a few who fly in from out of state to participate. I ADORE my Texas friends – they’ve taught me to be serious about winning the tournament, and to look damn cute doing it. And yes, we’ve placed on a few occasions (not too shabby, eh?). Cha-ching!
I totally dig the mountains
and am an avid hiker. I grew up at the beach in Clearwater, FL and even though I can appreciate a beautiful beach (especially the ones with no sand), I’m a mountain girl at heart. I have a little love affair (meaning, I’m totally obsessed) with trees. Something about them makes me feel peaceful and grounded. Being in the mountains is my zen.
I cuss in my everyday life.
And more than the average person. In my business, I do try to ONLY use cuss words when it’s truly necessary [that’s a complete lie], but consider yourself forewarned for real.
I say “word” a lot because…
well, because it’s necessary (and I don’t care what decade it is!).
I REALLY love cars.
Now, before you judge me…It isn’t at all about the status symbol or the price tag of the car that I love. I’m a sucker for engineering and design. I’ve definitely been found reading up on how a supercharged engine works. I soooo admire the creativity and design that goes in to creating a beautiful automobile
And I loooooove to drive, friend.
Which brings me here –
I also went to school for interior design. and the hubs and I flip houses – it’s our jam. Sometimes we’ll sit together, each with our iPads and scroll (and scroll and scroll) through Houzz and drool or critique different designs for hours on end.
My great grandfather came to America in 1921 from Belgium.
He lived to be 100 and I admire and respect him immensely. I wrote about him and my passion for entrepreneurship in this book, Living Life Unbound: The Passions That Drive Female Entrepreneurs.
I am a deeply spiritual person
(yep, I cuss AND I Love God) and this exploration is responsible for some of the best moments, conversations, and experiences of my life. I cherish my connection to God, the Universe and my Soul.
Thanks for playing along – I’m glad you made it this far!
