I live in a bright baby blue house with a dark blue roof. We share a fence with a Texaco and spend most nights outwardly hating its patrons who blare their crappy music that rattles our windows. We've owned the Smurf house for almost two years and have done so many repairs, with many more to come. It is our creative outlet. It has caused many hardships for our wallets, but we're making it ours. ♥
My fellow works full time and provides the roof over our heads. He is my everything, and we are at 4 1/2 years strong. I want to spend the rest of my life with him. He is a gamer, he's heavily tattooed with the most tasteful ink you will ever see, he is an artist, his favorite food is soup, he wields knives and it's sexy.
We adopted a dog called Apollo who is a corgi/golden retriever mix. He turns heads. He's adorable. We call him our [silly descriptive adjective] McGoggins. He's 4 years old and the closest thing we'll ever have to a child. He loves his squeaky platypus and turtle and loves to have his little legs nibbled on by his BFF Jake.
After many emotional hardships with office jobs in the construction field, I have started living the American dream and pursuing what I love. I work at a bakery - Sweet Dahlia Baking on Bainbridge Island - where I am a commercial baker. A professional baker! Woo! I work a few days a week and on my off days, I tinker with side projects and relax, because I fucking deserve it.
I'm also a travel enthusiast. In my 28 years, I've done a lot of domestic and a bit of international travel and I'm always craving more. More culture, more exposure, more everything. If I didn't have my travel adventures under my belt, I think I'd be an even more dull person. I would very much like my next expedition to be to Wales (where I am a bit of a poor man's celebrity).
