I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only love. - Mother Theresa

I'm a city girl living in a small town trying to live and learn those words. 
 
I'm a youth minister and spend time with teenagers for a living, while trying to also read, write, and help with the local community theatre. 
 
I'm a huge geek and can spend hours with a good book or "hanging out" with the Doctor, hobbits, wizards, tributes, vampires, and Disney characters.
 
More often than not if you see me driving around town, I'm probably blasting showtunes through my speakers.
 
My dog is named Bandit, and he's the best dog ever. Everyone loves him.
 
In spite what the title of my blog might lead you to think - more often than not I don't remember that it is Love that wakes me up every morning. But I want to remember every single day. 
 
In these last few years since graduating college I've learned that life is going to throw you curves you never saw coming, and may not look the way you thought it would.
 
Yet, you need to learn to keep going, keep learning, go on new adventures, keep loving, and letting other people share their stories and come with you.
 
So grab a cup of coffee (or your preferred beverage of choice) and come along for the journey. Join in on the conversation - even if you don't agree with me sometimes - and we'll learn together.
