I am 22 years young. I love to read, write and sing. I am an assistant manager for an assisted living program. I have high hopes to get my degree in Music Therapy as I enjoy helping people. I have a crazy cockapoo dog that I consider my bratty child. I'm from MI born and raised, never really traveled anywhere else but would love to someday.

*I'm going to add that Katelynn is the shiznit! LOL Really this girl is awesome and I am so blessed to have her as a friend. ♥*

{my thoughts}
So freakin' wonderful!!! Oh my gosh. I love Avalynn & Dax. This is an amazing story that was beautifully written! I can't wait until book #2. I would be harrassing her to get it done but I know she's exhausted and I'm trying hard not to poke her on Facebook daily and post on her wall every few hours. The cliffhanger (though we knew it was coming) was a killer! But in the best way possible. We love Ava & Dax and we want to know what happens next. The perfect ending for a perfect book! LOVE!! ♥
