I’m tall – if you want to get technical – just a hair under 5’10”. I’m the shortest of my siblings, so it takes me a while to realize among friends that, yes, I am generally among those with height. In “short” heels, I register approximately 6’0″ to 6’2″.

Ray of Sunshine – While I enjoy snark just as much as the next person, I generally like to maintain my mood as happy. People often comment on my smile or laugh as something they genuinely like about me and not the “Oh! she has a great personality” vein. Thank God.

I’m in my 30s, single-never married, recently engaged, and an Orthodox Christian. These general descriptors give me tons of material for this site. Woot.

I first published on Facebook, and the reason I didn’t follow friends’ prodding sooner to branch out to the blogosphere was I wondered, “Do I actually have something to say that is significant?

I hope you read posts that are significant. While making no promises, you will (hopefully? eventually? hmmm…) read my slant on:

  1. Life as I know it
  2. Being an Orthodox Christian in America
  3. Being a former Evangelical Protestant Christian
  4. Taking on a new career
  5. Nursing
  6. Music and Music Education
  7. Food
  8. And the great thing about blogs….anything that I want!
To quote the movie Julie and Julia: “I have thoughts! I could write a blog!”

    I promise I will not stalk your blog. 😉 But I’m really glad you’re sharing your thoughts – I’ve always loved your way of expressing yourself.
