Been blogging since 8/22/08. I am a wanna be cowgirl, disney princess, race car driver and world traveling journalist amoung other things. I day dream mostly about living in the country and having a hobby farm with a garden, animals & chickens for the eggs that are free range and treated with love, on the outskirts of a big city on the ocean, adventures, traveling the world helping those during disasters, fashion, decorating, shopping, entertainment world, having my own motorcycle, boat and my own four wheeler. This blog is my: online journal, list keeper, passions, opinions, photography and who knows what else;) Thanks for stoppin' by!
I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!
This quote is profound to me: “Every piece of this is a man's bullshit. They call this war a cloud over the land, but they made the weather. Then they stand in the rain and say: shit! It's raining!” Ruby, Cold Mountain
