I am 37 years old living in a small southern town. I have been happily married 17 years. I have always known I would not give birth to any children, but know in my heart that adoption is the way for us. I rescue dogs. I have eight rescues living at home with me. I have found forever homes for countless other dogs in need. I am told that I am an artist. I enjoy using old fabric to create all sorts of cool items. I have made over 50 baby quilts for friends in the past 7 years. I love to paint. My last paint project was using old paints that would have been thrown in the landfill to give an aging dump truck bed a rust free truck bed liner and a bright new life. I have two huge canvases awaiting some paint. I also pick up almost any rock that strikes my fancy and use them for art installations like creating a pathway to my front door. I have been been capturing my perspective view's on life through my camera lense since I was 10. My camera is my third eye. I also love fishing!
I believe in paying it forward. I choose to live in the present and learn from the past. Ponder not on yesterday for you will waste the day you have now.
I am a mountain girl that has lived all over the southeast with family ties all over the world. My friendships are based on trust and love. My friends and family know that I love them. I imagine love for everyone. I was 18 being dropped off at college before I ever heard either of my parents say, "I love you." I only realized this revelation so to speak recently. I wonder if I knew that I was loved, at say birth, would I even know the person writing these very words. Actions speak louder than words; so it does not really matter that the words went unspoken until I was legally an adult. The lesson for me is to not only voice my love, but live love. Love.
