Excuse me while I ramble... I'm 41 years old. I have one child who is an adult herself. I'm married to the most wonderful man in the universe. I'm worshiped by two big dogs. I grow a lot of roses, and a couple fruit trees. I'm addicted to nail polish; I own more than 400 bottles. I love to cook and bake. I drink a lot of coffee and tea. Yum... I favor African coffee beans and Chinese teas. I like to collect coffee mugs also. I have tattoos. I write with many parentheses and ellipses. I'm a geek. I love gadgets... especially phones and cameras. I can take really nifty photos (with my Pentax K-30), but usually I just snap a quick pic with my trusty phone (currently iPhone 5) . I'm also pretty crafty.
