I'm the type of person who's always willing to put myself out there, meet new people and try new things. BUT, that doesn't mean it's always easy or enjoyable or comfortable.

I've never been a big fan of April Fool's day, probably because I'm so gullible . I'm a trusting, curious person. So if you spin me a tale, or tell me to try something, I will do it.

Hopefully you have something you enjoy doing too! It's been… Continue reading Matchy matchy

Sometimes it's teammates celebrating with each other, or athletes from different countries congratulating their fellow competitors. You… Continue reading V-I-C-T-O-R-Y!
