Information about Me

I love to read. My favorite color is purple. I have had a bucket list since I was in the 7th grade (except then it was called Things I want to do before I die) it includes learning to play the piano, being in the Macy's day parade and have a family. Careers I've aspired to have: Pediatrician, Lawyer, Journalist, Mary Kay Director. I am actually a contract paralegal and I love it. Italy is my dream vacation. I regret that I do not have more time or energy to scrapbook or quilt. I collect Frog Prince figurines.
