About Me:

I love reading, playing music, spending time with my family and friends, sports, photography, and outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, running, and camping.

I auditioned to be an extra Elf in The Hobbit in Wellington, New Zealand-waiting for a phone call saying they want me! ;)
And finally, God never ceases to amaze me. I will never be able to to fully comprehend or know Him, but I intend to spend my entire life trying. Nothing else comes close to the thrill of knowing Him.

Sorry for the long time to get back to you! Yes, I love to draw---although, I admit, I haven't done it in a while because of the general busyness of life. I'd like to learn how to paint. I've seen/heard pastels are a good way to learn how to paint realism very well---I've seen some amazingly lifelike wildlife paintings in pastel which I dream of being able to recreate one of these days. Do you paint?

I am doing well, and am really liking my credit union job. Six times this month, I am working at the busiest branch, and am learning how to conquer it! Cool

Plus, my brother is captaining a tennis team on which I am playing, and we have won both matches played thus far.
