The best news EVER as we start 2016 is that is now the proud parent to 2 wonderful GIRLSTanya Patrice and Kimberly Lynne, who is moving over from Bookmark2Blog. This is super-awesome news for both of us as we have stalked … followed … each other’s blogs over the past few years, and now finally, we are sharing the same space. So “allow me to re-introduce myself” (bonus points if you know which song that verse is from).

  1. I love music concerts. Crazy, loud, outdoor bashes where everyone is dancing and singing are my favorite.
  2. I secretly dream of holing up in a cabin somewhere in the mountains and just reading and hiking all day long.
  3. I love to garden but I’m rubbish at keeping up with the garden maintenance.
  4. My favorite food is avocados. I love them on pretty much everything.
  5. Speaking of food. I love it. I will try just about anything. Favorite past time for my hubby and I is trying out new to us restaurants.

  2. I’m an introvert who is married to an extrovert and has to manage a staff of 10 – people overload is a real thing for me!

  4. I am a former party animal. We’re talking almost every weekend since I was 15 until way into my mid-20s!
