I was raised in Bellville, Texas in a family of educators. I have two rescue puppies named Olive Marie and Ruby Rose. I love Jesus and all of his children. If I get a free minute I will head to a spin class, watch a documentary, try a new restaurant with friends, go to a concert, find an art festival, shop for shoes or eat spicy crawfish.
