I am an over-committed, enthusiastic, and quirky jumble of a person, who also likes her quiet time. Yeah, figure THAT one out. :) I love going places and doing new things, which is part of the reason I have ended up in Minnesota. I moved here from Bloomington, Indiana to take my very first salaried job (at long last) in the end of 2006. I have been to Africa three times but this is the farthest west in the US that I've lived and, consequently, really explored. I love my friends and family and thank God every day that I have them in my life, for I'd certainly be lost without them. And I LOVE to laugh!
