To take over the world, one high five at a time.
I'm a lucky lady. I have an awesome family and great friends. My son is my heart and soul. I honestly do not know where I would be today if I didn't have him. I served in the United States Marine Corps and gained an appreciation for the diversity in the US. I don't know where life is taking me, but I'm up for the ride.
I may be 5 ft, 2 in, but I walk and feel like I am 6 ft tall. I have learned to show love to people bc sometimes they may not have as much as I do. I can not change the world over night, but I can try. High fives go a long way. DANCE!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Surf my couch
One time, I took an impromptu road trip from NH to FL. For two weeks. We slept in the van, friends houses and the beach. It was awesome.
Good beer, good music, family, friends, movies, live music, music festivals, Bruce Lee, reading, sleeping, good tv shows, the beach, NH, clear skies during the winter, sun rises on my way to work, fishing off my dock, lounging on the pontoon boat. Living for today.
