<div class=entry-content post-body> <p><span style=font-family: georgia;>In <em>An American in Paris</em> starring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron, Gene Kelly’s character quite convincingly describes his love interest, Leslie Caron. Leslie dances away in a beautiful portrayal of a multifaceted, everyday sorta girl. Like Leslie Caron, I wear numerous hats. Some look better on me than others, but it’s still fun to try them all on! I live incessantly and I am wild, simple and beautiful, spiritual, exciting, lusty, sweet & shy, old fashioned, infectious & modern, yacky and moody. A little bit of everything all rolled into one. </span></p> <div><br /><span style=font-family: georgia;>It can be difficult to sum up 25 years in a <em>short</em> biography. But it is interesting to look back and mull over the trials and tribulations I have gone through, the extent of how I have changed, the friends I have lost and the companions I have gained… I certainly never expected to wish I could be 12 again, or better yet, wish I had listened to my parents when they said things like ‘save your money’ or ‘do as I say, not as I do’. Because of this I try to live everyday knowing ‘I’m going to miss this’. Not remembering the past or worrying about the future but being present in the moment.</span></div> <div><br /><span style=font-family: georgia;>In May of 2008 my husband (and high school sweetheart) and I adopted our puppy Kaya, and in August 2008 we gave birth to our first child. My definitions of love and happiness considerably changed the moment I first saw my son. The first few minutes of his brand new life created a new significance to ‘love at first sight’. I now know how it<strong> really</strong> feels to love somebody.</span></div> <div><span style=font-family: georgia;><br />I like to think that I can roll with the punches and blend in where needed. I route for Michigan football year after year (not the most exciting thing to mention right now), I’ve been known to kick some butt on Halo 3, I fired my first shotgun when I was 8 months pregnant and I get excited when I see snakes (but I freak out when I see roaches). Among the more boring traits, I enjoy reading anything from Harry Potter (yea, I know) to John Grisham. I should be a sales rep for Netflix, I’m their #1 fan. Oh, who started the rumor 'the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach' - I beg to differ! I am in no way a man, and I'd prefer a nice meal over flowers any day! I am terribly allergic to cats… and I prefer dogs over diamonds too. </span></div> <div><br /><span style=font-family: georgia;>I am a stay-at-home-mom and presently I am attending college courses online: I will be graduating with an Associates Degree in Communications in July 2010. I love to write and look forward to making a career of it. I am also intrigued with the process of holistic living; perhaps a career within the realm of holistic health and nutrition would be a suitable addition to my studies :D</span></div> </div>
