I live in Allen, Texas with my husband, and twin boys who keep me humble. I enjoy cooking, reading, and have a sunny and positive attitude about life and all of its adventures. I love to travel and explore world cultures and dream about hiking Machu Picchu and backpacking in Patagonia someday. I do love my job so every day is perfect for me! But the monotony of routine drives me insane, so I am always looking for something new, adventurous, and challenging in life.
This quote by H. Jackson Brown Jr. aptly describes the principles by which I try to lead my life.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
