I am a dancer with very little time to do other things.. Cooking is one of my favorite pass times (I am seldom found with out my Martha Stewart cook book or Marthastewart magazine). I am very athletic, love any form of exercise, and I am very creative and artistic. Love Boston and hope to move there some day. It really bothers me to cook in a dirty kitchen! Rule of thumb "Never make a mess on top of a mess"... Only results into a Monstrous mess! I am a VERY neat, and organized, my mind can't function in a cluttered situation. I love my rabbit, and I love clean bed sheets with a heavy quilt to warm me in the winter time. I Love to knit, and sew. If one was to take me to a place of my choice, I would choose a sandy white beach, in a remote area. Aaaa, so relaxing!! I couldn't live with out music, one of my favorite things even created. I love all season, but I tend to favor summer. My dream Dance role is Juliet in Romeo and Juliet. Aaa, that will be the day when I shed tears of joy and pain combine. To finish off, I love my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ above all things.
