Each of us is unique. Our DNA, our likes and dislikes, the stories of our lives. I want to share some things about me. They make up who I am and they make me unique.

I’m allergic to strawberries. So much so that my phone auto-filled in the word strawberries when I typed “I’m allergic to…”

I cannot watch commercials about shelter dogs. They have always made me cry. I can watch the ones about starving children in the world but not the ones about dogs. I care about the children of the world but those puppy dog eyes (literally) get me every time. I change the channel when they come on. If I can’t change the channel, I leave the room.

I am not a fan of Steven Seagal. I change the channel if he is on the tv. I don’t know why, he has never done anything to me, I just can’t tolerate him.

I make a wish on the first star I see every night . Every time. The same wish. I can’t share the wish, because then it won’t come true.

I dislike odd numbers. The radio volume and tv volume have to be on an even number always.

My house and car are both completely paid for. I have no credit card debt. I’ve worked hard since the age of 15 for what I have.

I twirl my fingers through my hair when I am nervous or really tired.

I talk to my pets, even the fish, like they can hear and understand me. I talk to my plants the same way.

I’ve been married and divorced twice but I still very much believe in marriage and happily ever after.

I absolutely hate mayonnaise!

I don’t eat any type of fish or seafood despite loving the beach and being a mermaid. Fish are friends, not food!

I collect shells, magnets and stickers from places I have been and even some from places I’ve not yet been. The shells are worked into the decor of my house. The magnets cover my fridge, freezer and washing machine. The stickers are on my bear proof, holds ice for 7 days, got it at Walmart for less than $100 cooler.

I love to sing. I was in chorus as a kid and have performed hundreds of duets along with the radio as I’m driving down the road. I won’t say I’m good at it, but that doesn’t stop me either.

I would not ever skydive or bungee jump. Heights don’t bother me but flying does and so does falling.

I don’t really have a favorite color. It changes according to my mood and what the object in question is.

Pet peeves include people who abuse others , loud chewers and anyone who pops their gum.

I’m a natural redhead but I do color my hair now to cover the gray. Secretly I’d like to just go completely gray and rock it as best I can.

I’m looking forward to turning fifty. I’m going to have a huge party, a photo shoot and a smash cake!!

I love to be held and snuggled but I can’t stand for anyone to rub on my arms. I do like my hair caressed and played with.

I love hot McDonalds fries but stop eating them as soon as they stop burning my fingers.

I’d love to be an author/photographer and think Anthony Bourdain had the sweetest job ever.

I love to travel and my bucket list could fill an entire notebook.

I was born in Germany. Heidelberg. I am an American citizen but I have both German and American birth certificates.

My favorite movie is in Italian with English subtitles. It’s called Life Is Beautiful and the actor who plays the main character won an Oscar for his performance.

I know how to crochet.

I love Key Lime pie.

I met Mohammed Ali once and he called me Ding Dong because he heard my sister call me that.

I am a work in progress.

I love with everything I am and following my big heart has caused me pain but I have no regrets when it comes to helping others.

If you had told me even a few months ago that I would post a bikini picture of myself on Facebook, I would have laughed at you but I’m finally realizing that life is short.You have to live each day to the fullest, love without fear and always be yourself.

Be unique. Be you.
