I am a Scientist who creates Gum & Candy recipes during the day, and at home I like all sorts of hobbies and crafts. I have a farm where I host family and friends often and I hope to put on aribnb eventually; we have 3 ponies, 2 miniature horses and a donkey and we just enjoy watching their herd mentality nuances. I am single, but have 15 nieces and nephews whom I adore. I love to travel and when I do I prefer to get a glimpse of how everyday life is lived in that region. I guess my life motto(s) is(are) - try new things.... and enjoy the moment (who knew I had 2 mottos!?!)
