About Me
I love spending time with my family & friends, cooking and allowing everyone to enjoy good food and drink. I love photography, reading, working out, running, and the beach. I cherish the time spent with my amazing & intelligent 7 year old son. I also enjoy taking care of my little yorkie Jay Jay. More things I LOVE:capturing the beautiful beach images & watching the sunset over the water; to travel-when I get a chance; discovering great new restaurants and trying new things; watching the Food Network & ESPN, my music, and my apple products. Things I wish I could do: travel more; cook everyday; sing; own & operate a bake day. I just don't have the time right now. Family and my friends are the most important thing to me. God has blessed me in so many ways. . I love life :)
