RANDOMS
In my free time I enjoy…
Traveling (alone or with my children). I love discovering new places and experiencing the world, different cultures and different foods.  A picture (okay, my pictures) cannot capture the beauty my eyes see.
Favorite spot in Charlotte? 
Uptown, there is an energy that is alive.  Great food, museums, the park for relaxing…so many options.
One place I’ve always wanted to visit is…
Italy, I got to spend a week there in April, but it wasn’t enough time.  God willing, I plan to go back and spend a longer time there.  I have been drawn to this country for as long as I can remember.  I loved it!!!
The best movie of all time is clearly…
Under the Tuscan Sun – Besides the fact that it is Italy (and even though it does not follow the book).  I identify with the character, shattered by life, feeling hopeless and wondering if she would ever be happy again. I loved her courage, determination, watching her rebuild her life and realizing all her fears were unfounded, and her deepest desires were fulfilled
The famous person I most clearly resemble is…
Julie Andrews (I hear it all the time, but I don’t see it).
