Hello all! I just thought that I should introduce myself to everyone. I am a 37 year old woman who lives in Northern Michigan. My man and I have been together for 19 years and we have no children other than my "fun baby" Lily. She is a 2 1/2 year old Long-Haired Dauschund/Beagle mix they refer to as a Doxle. They are one of the new "Designer" breeds, in her case breed for her hunting instincts, but we rescued her from the pound just because she's so darn cute.
She was abused and moved from home to home. As a result she has some anxiety issues, but is VERY loving, extremely playful, and a little clown who makes me laugh all the time. I am her pet, not the other way around.
As for my "professional" life, I've worked in many lines of the customer service industry. I currently work as a "beauty advisor" for Walgreens and co-own a residential painting business with my man. My hobbies include Reading of course, making jewelry and candles, loom knitting, and surfing the net.
One of my favorite childhood memories is of my father holding me and reading The Hobbit & The lord of the Rings trilogy to me. I believe thats what spurred my love of reading. From elementary through High School I had a book for pleasure reading with me at almost all times. I did get away from it for many years once I became an adult. But a few years ago I got back into it again and have been hitting the pages with a vengence. For the most part I enjoy reading Paranormal Romance and fantasy. I'll occasionally read a murder mystery, thriller, or romance, but I prefer something that reaches beyond normal everyday life. Something with vampires (they don't have to be nice lol), shape shifters, ghosts, demons, witches, humans with esp, etc, is what usually grabs my interest. Feel free to send me recommentations you may have about these kinds of books. Thanks
