If you'd like to get to know me better, here's a list of random things about me:

1. I decided at 24 that I was going to be an opera singer when I grew up.
2. I live in Tallinn, the capital of the tech-savvy little country of Estonia (at the Baltic see), with the greatest husband in the world.
3. I’m multi-passionate and proud of it! I don't care if it makes me look like I have ADD.
4. I'm a pathological dreamer. I believe in the saying that if your dreams don't scare you, they're simply not big enough.
5. I eat way too many sweets. I get cranky if I've been away from chocolate for too long.
6. The only thing I love more than sleep is singing.
7. I love making things! I can be glued to my sewing machine for 14 hours straight.
8. I'm a real softy - I cry during every movie and TV-show. Sometimes even commercials. It's pathetic.
9. I have a Master's degree in psychology. I like to watch people. Not in a creepy way.
10. I love to cuddle. A lot. A lot lot.
11. I can do anything I want, if I really want to. I can be real stubborn like that.

If you have a question, inquiry, comment, or would just like to say "hello!", I'd love to hear from you!
