About Me

I'm day dreamer, star gazer, well wisher, and free with whimsy. For my day job, I coordinate services and advocate for people with disabilities. #cubiclelife LOL! I'm a minister's wife, assistant/youth pastor, and cake baker.

Most of all, I'm completely, unapologetic-ally ME!

It's not uncommon for me to spontaneously take off and drive. I love day trips to cutesy little villages, markets, and state parks. I crave the unique and different life brings.

I enjoy spring showers, summer nights, autumn bonfires, and moonlit snowfall. I find comfort in nature, oddities, and the hilarity life brings. I love making the old new again!

I fancy good coffee, tea, dark chocolate, and cheese.

Hello! I hope this verse for the Profile Bible Verse #12 Swap speaks to you today!

Hi I'm your partner for the Profile Swap #10 I'm not sure what happened as I did this on the weekend but none of them saved! I'm so sorry! Here is the quote I picked for this swap!

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brené Brown

“No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!” ― T.D. Jakes

Profile quote 11

Laughing is one of the best exercises, it's like running inside your mind. You can do it almost anywhere and it's even better with a friend.

Profile Quote #11

It might take a year, it might take a day, but what's meant to be will always find its way. (Unknown)

Have a nice day!

"The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today."

MidsummerDream on Feb 27, 2018:

“We’re all stories, in the end. Just make it a good one, eh?”— The Doctor, Doctor Who

Profile Quote #11

WritersSoul on Feb 25, 2018:

If you wait until you find something to speak up for, something that you’re passionate about that concerns you and attacks your own beliefs, then eventually, when the day finally arrives, you might also find that you have forgotten how to speak.
