Who you’re traveling with:

hmmm my previous attempts at this sounded a wee bit too much like a bad personal ad.  It must be time for a list: 

  1. I am a single mom to a wonderful little boy.  Age four was absolutely fantastic and five is holding much promise.
  2. I owned a coffee shop for gamers with an ex-fiancé.  It took eight years to pay off the debt.
  3. Pride has never served me well
  4. I still love the smell and taste of coffee.
  5. However, I have a hard time verbalizing an order at Starbucks.
  6. I can not think of an alcohol I don’t enjoy
  7. I prefer single malt scotch or wine depending on the weather or my mood.
  8. My face is an open book… I believe it’s my eyes that give me away…Or perhaps it’s my jaw…
  9. Yet I’ve made the final table of every poker tournament I’ve participated in.
  10. My music taste is very eclectic. Classical, Hip Hop, Big Band, Jazz, Hair bands, Alternative, Celtic Folk Tunes, Blues, Country and Western… I like it all and will dance to most
  11. I played violin and piano through most of school. I can still read music and figure out the melody.
  12. I have a beautiful singing voice in the car traveling 90 down the highway with all four windows open, or whispering a lullaby to my son.
  13. Contrary to popular opinion I can be mean and spiteful. I just fight like hell to keep it suppressed because it’s not who I want to be.
  14. I believe if I can do better or become more I should.
  15. When I say “Bless their heart”, I truly mean it. 98% of the time.
  16. My love language is food.
  17. I have enjoyed baking bread for my family for the past several years… and can’t wait to get good at it.
  18. I am a recovering people pleaser and am enjoying finding my own voice.
  19. I held the girls record in high school for Iron man. It was the most impactful thing for my self esteem and one of the most humbling experiences I’ve had.
  20. I really love a good quote. Something about the strength in the brevity of words that touches me. Life lessons in digestible bites…
  21. I am a loyal friend and enjoy nothing more than talking to the wee hours of the morning about everything and nothing. However, small talk slays me. Especially in a crowd.
  22. I am an absorber. I have learned to be diligent about the people I associate with. The rest of you have your own box. I’ll check on you from time to time, and slam the lid shut if I need to. Especially if you’re toxic.
  23. I am a passionate person and a peace keeper. These don’t always work well together.
  24. I believe life is an adventure and something wonderful happens every day.
  25. I have learned that being grateful allows me peace.
