Seven Facts About Me

1.  I am a self professed control freak and a planner.

2.  I tend to be a homebody until I get really bored and then I spend time at the theater watching movies or will meet up with friends or family for breakfast or lunch or appetizers and drinks. I prefer to be at home curled up on the bed with a heated blanket and watching shows that I tivo’d or movies.

3.  I am an actress and film producer.  I am pretty excited about a couple of new media projects I am developing that we start shooting in a month.

4.  My mother, godmother and best friend’s mom are all battling cancer at the same time.  I have been pretty depressed about the fact that they even have to go through this.

5.  I am finding myself in a position I NEVER thought I would be in:  deploring pregnancy announcements, hating to see others with their babies, and hearing about engagements.  I find myself getting mad at God because His timing is not my timing.  I reel myself back in and accept the fact that God knows what is best for me, even though I do not like it, but He is listening to me and is orchestrating my blessings to come to fruition even when I can not see or feel it.  I remind myself that faith in God includes faith in His timing !

6.  I am writing a book about my infertility struggles and launching a coaching service to help other women.

7.  I hate the cold with a passion, but love snow.  I am excited to be moving this summer to where I will be in the sunshine year round and will not have to deal with cold weather nor snow ever again unless I travel to it !
