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, whichever.
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 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.
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.
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 Rings.
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 around?
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?"
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 terrible speller
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.
