I like reading, writing, cooking, dancing, movies, and music. I’m a big kid and choose to see the world in my own special way. Yes, I’m educated, but I haven’t let that stop me from being who I want to be. I’m a wife, teacher, author, blogger, and more.

    1. You’re welcome. I just like sharing the highlights of what I’m reading. You never know what will appeal to someone else or, at leas, start up a conversation.

    1. No thank you. I went on a hunt for this movie after your interview and wanted to share it, whether other people were into it or not.
