I use to lj alot a long time ago, found myself on other sites and always coming back here.
Me and my main man Spidey. No big deal.
I am a 27 year old Chicago transplant living in RURAL Tennessee.My name is Maggie. I have a nine year old son Eli (who is my whole world!) and boyfriend Corey (5 years together). We have a cat and a dog. This is the basis of my life, and I love them all. I recently went ape shit and quit my job of 3 years in management. I was working 65+ hours and was miserable. I have been unemployed since February first, and will start a new one March 13th. I use to average 3-5 hours of sleep a day and go and go on coffee. Now I'm suffering from a bout of insomnia! I am very domestic and sometimes a bit strange. I am slightly type a. Looking forward to some new chapters, losing weight, and my garden this summer. I can't wait for winter to go so spring can blossom and I go creek stomping and camping!
I love to cook it's a passion and a hobby. I always look at recipes as adventures. My house loves to eat and I love to feed them. (please let me note my love for coffee... it's my blood type.)
Music is my other passion. I love it in all forms. I love collecting vinyl and seeing shows live. I live right in between Memphis and Nashville and visit Chicago about 6 times a year. I see QUITE a few bands. I don't like just a specific I have a wide range. Current rotation: Hurray for the Riff Raff Band, Shovels & Rope, Alabama Shakes, Modest Mouse (touring again!) and the Deslondes.
My friends and family: I'm a mother hen. Any event, any task, phone call, problem, I'm your girl. Once in a while it gets overwhelming...but the end of the day I wouldn't have it any other way.
Traveling: We try really hard to utilize the states and cities around us. We go on a couple vacations a week. We also go to Memphis, Nashville, and Chicago all through the year. This means food, sports events, local breweries, thrift stores, and good times. I love camping, hiking, finding creeks, and seeing the Tennessee woodlands.
I also am an avid gardener, make-up consumer by the ton, and book collector. My dream is to own a small scale farm, run a record store, and see the world.
My journal is filled with day to day happenings, my son, cat, and dog. And of course me.
Be my friend!
