Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hum, a little about me..
I was born, no pods in my history. I've spent most of my life in
the South, but really loved the time I spent in Maine and felt at
home there. I have been in Nashville for 13 years and have loved
being here, too. I moved here to spend the summer with my sister
and never left. After years of moving around, it seemed like a good
time and place to stay still for a bit.
I have a family that I love and am close to, friends that I enjoy,
and a son that I'm crazy about. I am ready for a partner with whom
I can share all that and a glass of wine or a Dr. Pepper,
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm creating a life that I love.
I'm also tying to remember where the Delete and End keys are on my
new laptop. Their placement is really different from my last one.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Folding laundry. My mom is the champ at folding fitted sheets so
that you can't really tell that they are fitted and not flat, but
I'm darn good with a towel.
I'm a pretty good fort builder, too, and can make a cape out of
almost anything, including bubble wrap. So, if you come across a
superhero who is without a cape or secret lair, send them my way.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Do you think this is where I should mention the bubble wrap cape
that I like to wear when I'm out? I don't know if it's the first
thing people notice... Okay, it's my son who wears the cape.
I am pretty quiet when I first meet people or when I am in a group.
I talk more when I get to know people.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

I love to read and typically choose fiction. I like reading
everything from classics to the latest bestsellers. I really like a
good murder mystery. I also like most things that Pat Conroy has
written. I think that he has an amazing ability to write prose that
is almost poetry in its eloquence.
Lately, with a young child in the house, I've had a great time
revisiting the children's books that I grew up with and watching my
son enjoy the ones that I loved at his age. I can't wait to
introduce him to the Narnia series and The Hobbit and Lord of the
I am lucky enough to have a brother-in-law next door with a million
CDs by a variety of artists. Who needs iTunes with him
I have seen two movies in the last three years so I have a lot of
catching up to do. My first and greatest love though are some of
the older movies like Rear Window, Breakfast at Tiffany's, anything
with Hepburn and Tracy or Hepburn and Grant, Charade (I know,
another Hepburn), To Catch a Thief. I also love a good Monty
Python. I had the pleasure of introducing my nephew to The Holy
Grail. It's a memory I'll always cherish. "What, the curtains?"
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A hot shower
Words (I love words, particularly the sound of them)
Curiosity (wouldn't the world be boring without it?)
A dictionary/spell check because as much as I love words I'm a
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
how funny my son is, how scared I am by Sarah Palin (I'm fairly
sure there's a pod in her history) and how baffled I by people who
enjoy watching DWTS. Give me The Closer and I'm a happy girl.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I typically have a date with Caillou or SpongeBob and my child -
that's why I'm on this site. My best friend moved away just as we
both had children and since then I've been at home watching TV
filled with animation and goofy songs.
I've loved this time with my child. We go swimming, read books, go
for walks and spend time with my sister and her family. It's been a
beautiful time to have together. I'd like to add someone closer to
my age into the mix now and just for kicks have a dinner that
doesn't involve spilt milk.
