So, who am I? I’m a writer secretly disguised as a public school teacher. I spend my days desperately trying to teach unappreciative youths to enjoy, or at least tolerate the written word. When I get home, I transform into Frustrated Writer Girl. My true identity cannot be known, otherwise I might jeopardize the safety of all around me.
Seriously, I’m an English teacher, mom, and lover of books and movies who spends a lot of her free time hanging out in a local coffee shop with my friends, despite my absolute hatred of actual coffee. I recently finished writing my first novel, which some of my nearest and dearest are reading and giving me feedback on. One day I hope to actually see it bound on a bookshelf or two.
Travel is a serious passion of mine. I love planning trips. I travel with my family, with my students and by myself. I want to see this entire world and while I know that is a rather lofty goal, I’m at a point in my life where I really want to work toward it. As an outlet for my love of traveling and trip planning, I have become a Magical Vacation Planner, which has been pretty fun so far. I’ve always been a Disney fanatic, so the idea of helping other people plan trips to a truly happy place for me (as well as trips to Universal Studios, cruises and tropical resorts), is a dream come true. I’m still teaching full time, so my vacation planning is truly a passion. I’m in it for the love of travel…and the MOUSE.
And I love chocolate. And I do mean LOVE chocolate. In a way that most people probably consider a little unhealthy. Me, I think of it more like a pure joy of life. While I may consume copious amounts of it and can be satisfied with the cheap stuff, I’m always on the look out for new chocolate products to try.
Oh, and, I don’t actually like beets at all.
