    You are a hopeless romantic Jen! I thought of you when I watched the Love Saga movies... not sure if you like them, but they seemed like something right down your alley.

    I loved reading this. It was fun to read, as well as, learn a little more about you!

    I had no idea that you are 5'8! Wow. I'm jealous! LOL. I'm Italian and most Italian people are shorter ~ I'm 5'4.5 but always say that I'm 5'5 so that I can feel taller. LOL.

    Thanks for sharing. Keep up the great work. You continue to always inspire and motivate me! : )

    Have a great day!
