I believe it’s better to be a classic than a trend.

I love, love, love my dogs, and am suspicious of people who don’t like animals.

Photography and gardening are my passions, and I never want them to become a “job.”

I love words, and for some reason, my vocabulary expands ten-fold when I’m angry or excited.

I am vehemently pro-personal-choice and anti-intolerance – can’t we all just get along already?

Accomplishment is my drug of choice, so when I set my sights on something, much more often than not, it gets done.

Guilty pleasures include Grey’s Anatomy and ER re-runs.

I like talking to strangers and hearing their stories.

My grandma taught me laughter is the best medicine for all that ails you, and I think she was a genius.

If there is a dog within a half-kilometre radius, I must pet it, much to the embarrassment of those I’m with.

I believe you are who you surround yourself with, so I’ve surrounded myself with the most fun, caring, passionate, intelligent, quirky, geeky, creative, and daring people I can find.

Travelling is important, so you can see how the rest of the world does it.

Sunny day + time in my garden = perfection.
