Hey you..

I love that you stopped by my little neck of the virtual woods and want to find out a little more about me. In time, I’ll hopefully get to know you as well as you’re about to know me:

I’m a mommy to three little ones, Ella 14, Adi 13 and Otis, 5 months, two rescue furries, Ciccio and Napoleon, five turtles, and wife to a pretty handsome guy.

I love to dance, I am the first and last gal on the dance floor (can’t speak to my rhythm, however).

I think tattoos are fabulous. They tell the story of our lives.

I am not a fan of capital letters.

I despise the word “spoiled.”

I’m a traveler.

My favorite movies are The Goonies, Ratatouille, and Love Actually. I have seen them at least 100 times (not kidding).

I moved around a lot as a kid- all over Ontario, Canada to Newfoundland and back. As an adult, I lived in Irvine, California for a bit. Life changed on me, and I followed my heart, and my career, to Turin, Italy. It was the best time of my life.

I am a trained criminologist with a law degree. I gave it up for a new path.

I’m deathly afraid of frogs and white lizards.

I have a soft spot for children and the elderly. Kids give us fantastic stories from their imagination, the older folks give us fantastic stories from their lives.

I am a surfer - a stubborn longboarder who refuses to give up on my nine-footer.

I am a coffee guzzler and book devourer.

If I could live off of seafood (shrimp & lobster), I would.

I'm fiercely loyal, and I'm trying to teach my kids to be the same.

I think I’m pretty funny. I have a knack for cracking up at my own jokes. I am a huge dork, and an even bigger goofball, you’ll see.

I sincerely think laughter is the best medicine, for absolutely everything.

My family keeps me grounded, and I keep them adventurous.
