Tagged by mindful-irreverence ( we met at Renfrew in Florida. I was one of the “old ladies” and I remember thinking how gorgeous and stylish she was, and still is!)

Song: Breathe(2:00 a.m.) by Anna Nalick is my theme song because of this lyric~ “ You can’t jump the track, we’re like cars on a cable
And life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table
No one can find the rewind button, girl.
So cradle your head in your hands.”
Movies: I have a difficult time sitting and paying attention to movies, so I don’t have any favorites.
T.V. Shows: Same with t.v., but I do enjoy Criminal Minds every once in awhile.
Bands: Fleetwood Mac
Solo Artists: Sarah McLachlan, Tori Amos, Brooke Fraser. I’m also a huge broadway musical geek. I also adore Judy Garland, Barbra Streisand, and Idina Menzel
Place: Snuggling on the couch and dozing with my husband
School Subject: English

Best Friend: Hands down, my husband! I also have a few amazing girlfriends. Robyn, Tammy, and Emily
Siblings. I have a younger brother. His name is Victor, but I call him Vic-Vic.
Dream Job: I wanted to be a musical theatre star, and that was my major in college, but now I’m living the dream. I’m teaching yoga, and I’m an autism therapist, which is what I’ve been doing for 15 years. I love it!
Political Ideology: I’m embarrassed to admit that my knowledge of politics is limited, and I should be more informed. I’m for being free, and that is all I know.
Religion: I was raised Catholic, and went to a Catholic school until 5th grade. I’m not involved in any organized religion, but I’m very spiritual. God is within and everywhere, and not scary, like I was raised to believe.
Piercings:I have double piercings in both ears, and I had my nose pierced, but I took it out last year, and it closed so fast. I miss it. I may get it redone.
Languages. English is all I know besides the Sanskrit I’ve learned from yoga, and the Italian cuss words my grandma taught me.
Reason behind url: I’m a warrior, and a yogini. Simple as that! I fought and won my battle over anorexia, and I’m a rape and childhood sexual abuse survivor. I’m proud to say that I fight and win every day.
Reason behind icon: My icon is a hummingbird because my husband has a brain tumor and when he almost died a few years ago, he had a vision of an Indian man and a hummingbird. The Indian man told him that he was going to live, and then he transformed into a hummingbird.

Tattoos: I have one across my lower back that I had done when I turned 40. It is a beautiful heart in the center with a scroll design along each side. It is for my husband, and he went with me when I had it done. It is posted below, stretch marks and all.
Selfie: I like this one :-)
