Hello! My friend told me about this place and how she met some really neat people, so I thought I'd come and try it out. I've been on LJ before, but I got really tired of it and purged my old account. But now I'm back and excited to give it a go again and try to be more involved with people, hopefully some in my area.

I'm Riley, or Rye if you prefer. I've been married for three years to my high school sweetheart. I was born and raised in the southwest, but moved with my husband to Florida after our wedding in 2008. I'm a photographer at heart and spend a lot of time with my hobby, but I am working as a dog groomer until I can open my own studio. My husband and I graduated from Miami Dade this past fall with degress in Music/Film and Photography respectively. We also have two dogs, a German Shepherd named Molly and a Beagle named Winston, and have adopted one of our three kids from another country.

My new journal isn't much different from my old one, which had a lot of talk about my daily life, my job, sometimes family, friends, and even a bit of fandom. My favorite television programs are SMASH and NCIS, films are The Grey, Hugo and Corpse Bride, and anime/manga are Ao No Exorcist, Bleach, and Death Note.

I dislike sour foods like pickles, and talking politics and religion with people I don't know extremely well, because nobody has any fun if discussions turn into arguments, and feelings can be hurt unintentionally.

I hope that I'll be able to chat with some of you, and that new friends will be made.
