I have a sign at the entrance to my home that says "Carpe Diem" which means "Seize the Day". I live by that motto as much as I can and remind myself to feel gratitude for each and every day that is blessed to me. I feel that gratitude more acutely as I get older :-)
I am an esthetician (facialist) with my own business. I also drive a school van for a special ed school. I used to be a photographer by trade and also worked in the entertainment industry for a time (one fun job was I got to go to lots of plays to scout talent). I love good food (I try to eat healthy), flowers, world music, beautiful colors, soft fabrics. I enjoy hiking, dancing, gardening and live theater. I like to be close to nature, visit farms and camp. My personality is easy-going (pretty much) and while I like to chat, I'm not a huge chatty kathy that needs to talk for hours a day. I can be taciturn at times.
