Paris, France
A girl who loves living, making, eating, and seeing. She's in Paris right now.
Interests: things that get me all excited: mapping a shape in knits and purls, the talk of trees, creating something that didn't exist before, a table covered in good food made for the ones i love, people who smile, wild dancing to swinging jazz, the state maine puts me in, learning the new, and filling the spirit
