Where to start?
There are so many things that one can share to let other’s know who they are as a person that it sometimes becomes a game of pin the tale on the topic.
I’m a south eastern US girl born and raised, working in the West when I met my husband, lived 3 years in Maharashtra India, and am now back where it all began (south eastern US)!
I was raised eating meat and potato’s, switched to a Vegetarian’s diet (which completely baffled my BBQ loving family back home) and am now back to eating meat but in a healthier and more restrictive way (fish, chicken, turkey).
Being born and raised in a small community, you learn many things. You learn about equality and racism. You learn what it means to grow up in a bible belt when your family is not necessarily religious but more spiritual and accepting. You learn that in a small town it’s impossible to get away with ANYTHING because five minutes after you’ve done it half the town has called your parents. You learn the true appreciation of nature, beauty and a love of all things wild.
I’m eclectic and like learning about anything and everything. I’ll research something interesting until I’ve found every last particle there is to find on the topic. I love Hindi music and Bollywood, but can totally rock out to the Killers or Pink Floyd while watching Fight Club, Die Hard, Pride and Prejudice or Steel Magnolia’s. I can crochet a scarf or hat in no time flat but can’t sew worth a darn. I can cook any Indian meal you want, just give me the recipe if I don’t know it and keep some Pepto on hand just in case (I like it spiiiiiiicy).
I used to be a Hunter/Jumper (horseback riding) until a tragic mix of stubbornness and horse met with stubbornness and girl and my knees took the fall. All three falls to be exact. I can still ride western though and yes, I still love the smell of a horse on a cool summer morning.
I’m a semi-professional, self taught photographer. I should probably say still learning photographer as I have a long way to go yet. My weapon of choice is my beloved Canon SLR.
I’m married to the most perfect man in the world and probably just about the most lucky girl in the world for winning his heart. I’m still figuring out how I managed that one.
And I love to read and write.
So here I am. This is me. Welcome to MY world!
