My passion involves long walks on the beach, looking for that perfect seashell to give to my significant other. Besides that, I enjoy the simple things in life like drinking chamomile tea next to a nice warm fire. When I'm in need of an emotional pick me up, I turn to my favorite song, Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus.
