34. I am totally random....totally in love with life....fairly easy going.....very flexible (not physically but just in life)....I am ME!

Thank you Jesus for deciding that September 16, 1974 was the day for me to enter into this world. I couldn't have made it this far in life if I wasn't a Christian and didn't have God directing the footsteps of my life. I have been given wonderful parents, wonderful sisters, a great extended family and tons of supporting friends that I have met over the years. No one is in my life by accident...and I treasure each and every person that has come my way!

PS...If you happen to be at the Puyallup Fair on Tuesday look around for me...I'll be there ALL day long!

Ok so I guess having a b-day on the 16th is a pretty great day! I mean you do share it with one of my fave people!!!

looking forward to learning more random things about you in your blog and watching us grow old together. Who knows!? Maybe we'll go to Zim one day together and visit our little buddy. (because I don't know if I got enough guts to do that trip alone! Know what I mean!?)
