I guess you could say I have a good sense of humor. My whole life I have been able to burst into uncontrollable laughter. Being a optimist is part of who I am. Most call me a little goofy like this picture when I just had to hug this big ole turtle. I am one of those ladies that finds getting up everyday fun and see life as a gift to enjoy. Yes, I also enjoy every single holiday, and comedies are my favorite movies. My motto is a Happy Heart is a Healthy Heart, and so far so good.
