Hi! I have been a Memphis resident since 1989. Growing up in my younger years I had a wonderful childhood in Colorado and then moved to Florida when I was twelve. So, I've had the best of two completely different worlds of which, I enjoyed very much. I have also had two opportunities to go over seas and experience Europe which were truly "divine and delightful" experiences! I transferred here in college when my parents had decided to move to Memphis. I loved the "big city" and the population of "people." I also thoroughly enjoyed all of the "beautiful houses and residences/neighborhoods" that ran thru Mid-town and the surrounding areas. I had never seen such beautiful homes both old and new that showered the city that I now call "my home." It is ironic that I ended up living on one of the oldest historical and most beautiful streets in Memphis. People enjoy walking up and down this street, looking at all of the different homes with a wide variety of styles and architecture. Most all of the tree's that line the boulevard are over one hundred years old. At certain times of the year, the median and streets are covered in an array of multiple and beautiful colors which truly is spectacular to witness. When I was in nursing school, I remember that I use to jog and ride my bike up and down "Belvedere Blvd" and wonder what type of people lived in these big and magnificent beautiful houses. When I got engaged, my husband to be was in the process of purchasing this home I currently live in and became the nickname "Belvedere." He pulled up in front of it and proposed to me right there in front of the house that I was to live in my entire life (thus far) in Memphis.
I would describe myself as fun, laid back, hard working, and possibly bohemian, but most of all I "love" people. I am most at home when I have a house full of people. I love coffee and good conversation. I respect peoples privacy but love doing little things for visitors/guests. I am new to all this B&B but I am absolutely sure that I'm going to love it and look forward to meeting people from all over the world!
My parents have lived in England and Germany (where I was born) and have travelled extensively all over Europe when I was young. Therefore, I get to thank my dear sweet mother for giving all three of her girls a wide and developed pallet of all different types of international cuisine that we got to experience growing up. I also love to cook. My favorite foods are Thai and Indian.
I have two motto's for me in this life..."Carpe Diem," and "To Thine Own Self Be True." I am spiritual, loving, kind, and compassionate. I respect all religions. We all come from the One True Source which is God. I believe God exists within all of us and is found within our hearts. I love nature. I also love animals. I am a nurse, but currently do respiratory sales and distribution. I also am a licensed massage therapist. I love life and meeting new and interesting people.
I guess that is enough about me. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me. Good luck in your travels. Be safe. Namaste.
