Who am I?

I ran out of room!......solemn, crescendo, croise, collenchyma, colour, prowress, brevity...

     I am Catholic. PERIOD. I belong to God and will always be his. I love our Creed and it makes me happy when I hear it. It’s everything I believe in. I love the communion of saints…. They are all my buddies. A few of my closest saint buddies are: St. Philomena, St. Therese of the Child Jesus, St. Vitus, St. Francis de Sales, St. Alphonsus Liguori, St. Elizabeth the Cousin of Mary, St. Thomas More, St. John Bosco, and St. Francis of Assisi. I also have a big devotion to the Child Jesus.

      I love to Dance. It is hard to describe how much I love it…. I take Ballet, Pointe and Tap. I have been dancing for around fourteen years…. I love being on stage  (I have been in eight recitals) …I love learning new steps and learning new dances.
