About: An American girl, who's saved by the Grace of God and Southern by birth. I'm also a transplant who's blooming where she is planted, which is in the rich soil of BC(that's Canada y'all!) I can be witty, silly, totally confusing and absolutely insanely crazy when it comes to playing Scrabble! I can be all those things even when I'm not playing Scrabble lol! I'm not your ordinary southern belle, I don't like apple pie or baseball and I don't knit, quilt or sip mint juleps! I love: my bible of course, reading, classic cars, fine arts/theater, museums, marital arts, cartoons, photography, travel, 5-star hotels(when I can afford it!) I would love to go to Israel and Italy. I'm living my dream: I got to retire at 37 and that's been almost 10 yrs. ago...time flies! *Dream big, really big! My dream came true and so can yours! God made it possible and I give Him all the honor/praise!
