About Me

My name is April and I am 28 years old. I grew up in Upstate New York near the Canadian border. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Ecology.

My Family
My entire family lives on the east coast. I have three siblings: an older brother (Chris), an older sister (Alexis), and a twin sister (Erin). They are scattered along the east coast while the rest of my family reside in PA. I have step parents that live in NY.

My Husband and Pets
My husband’s name is Andy and we were married in May 2011. We live in Montana and we have two cats (Buddy & Fiona), a dog (Buggs), a gold fish (Wilhelmina), and a betta fish (Luke Skywalker).

Hobbies & Likes
I like to read and bake,and I also like arts & crafts a lot! I do not, however, enjoy DIY home renovation all that much...but I post about it anyway in hopes that it'll help someone else not make the same mistakes I have!
Favorite movies: Harry Potters, How to Train Your Dragon, Tangled (of course), Wreck It Ralph, Ratatouille, Twilights (yep), Wild Target, Red, Pirates of the Caribbean, the Oceans movies, and many more.
Favorite books: Harry Potter series, Twilight series, Assassin's Apprentice/The Tawny Man/The Liveship Traders series (by Robin Hobb), The Hunger Games, the Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, A Song of Ice and Fire series by George Martin...
Favorite TV shows: White Collar, Leverage, Seinfeld, Project Runway, Top Chef, The Big Bang Theory, Frasier, and a lot of HGTV DIY shows.

Things that are on my bucket list....
Travel: Italy, Ireland, Africa, and Alaska are my top four destinations someday. Other places I would like to see are Australia & New Zealand, Europe, and Tibet.
I have always wanted to see/hear Beethoven's nine symphonies performed, and I finished that goal in May 2012. Yay!
I'd like to go bungee jumping, ride in a hot-air balloon, see all 8 bear species, see Aurora Borealis, visit at least five real castles, raise my own kittens and puppies, and snorkel an awesome reef.
