About Me

ABOUT ME

https://www.facebook.com/scaryjanebowers

Hi, I'm Sara. I'm really into having adventures, always have been. I love all kinds of things and people. Strangers talk to me on the street surprisingly often. I love maps & art. I grew up on a lake and have always loved the water, especially when I can swim in it, I'm a fish!! I'm funny and I like other funny people. I will do totally ridiculous things if I think it's funny. I'm borderline obsessed with Florence, lived there for a year and am moving back June 1, 2013. I absolutely can't wait. The Mediterranean is the love of my life!! I also like sports--I ride horses & snowboard & love to swim and do yoga.

Lastly, I have some crazy stories and I will show you mine if you show me yours ;D

PHILOSOPHY

Someday I wanna be a wacky grandma with an endless Pandora's Box of crazy old stories about how the world was at the dawn of the millenium...
