Hello, fellow Blizzard Boghoppers! Welcome to my world! What all is a part of my world, you ask? My husband (of whom I am proud to be called his wife) that serves in the US Air Force, and the reason we are living in Europe. My boys, that even though neither of them were planned, are of the utmost importance to me. My friends, to whom I am completely loyal and committed to. Books, books, and more books. I have never, in my life, made it a secret of how much of a bookworm I am and how much I love to learn. My crafting, which is the only way I keep my sanity most days. Knitting, crocheting, beading, and playing with clay are my current obsessions, though that's always open to expand and/or grow. I love to make things with my hands for nothing other than the sake of watching it take form under my fingers. Music, while no longer in the form of band and choir (of which I took part of both in high school), will remain a vital part of my life until the day I die.
I have always had an explorer's spirit, and am ecstatic to have the opportunities abroad that I do (with an emphasis on all things France and French!). I love to discover new little tidbits about the most random and seemingly insignificant details that I can, and am a hard core Harry Potter fan. There is so much more to me than I could fit into a few sentences, but that's the gist of it all. Oh, and I smile. A lot. In fact, because of my tendency towards optimism and all things cheery, my user name around the web tends to have the words "netta" and some form of "smile" in it. :) (Yes, my excessive smiling extends to emoticons, too...) I hope to meet some amazing people through this bloghop! Feel free to hop on board or not. :)
