Now that I have bombarded you all with links to find me and my jewelry store (links are on the right, in case you missed it :) ), I guess it's time that I properly introduce myself and let you know all about me :)
I am Vanessa Dixon, jewelry designer and owner of Dixon Jewelry And More. There, that's it!
Nah, just kidding. There is much more to me than that!
I am 29 years old, and ALWAYS will be! Remember that! In 10 years, I'll be 29 and 120 months, got it?!? I just recently (October) married the most absolutely perfect man. That's right, women... he exists! Unfortunately for you, I snagged him up! Unfortunately for you men, he snagged me up, so I am no longer on the market :). He is,without a doubt, my best friend and at the risk of sounding too clique', my soul-mate. He makes me a better person and I have never felt so loved! I didn't know this feeling exist until I met him. Okay, enough of the gushy stuff. Can you tell I'm still a newly-wed? :)
Other than designing jewelry, I enjoy photography, singing/songwriting/playing my guitar, and spending time with my loved ones. I lead a pretty simple life with as little drama as possible. No soap opera here. Sorry :(. My husband is a truck driver, and I enjoy riding along with him out on the road. Next time you see a semi out on the road, be nice to the truck driver. You have NO idea how hard it is to drive SO much. Seriously, it's a rough life, but someone's got to do it. They are the modern day cowboy, so treat them with respect. Without them, you would not get all that stuff you just have to have at Wal-Mart because no one would be delivering it to the store! Don't cut them off. It takes a LOT to stop an 18-wheeler, especially when it is loaded. If you are going slow and a semi tries to pass you, let him. Don't be stupid and speed up just because you can't stand the thought of being passed by a semi. That kind of stupidity is what gets people killed! Can you tell I'm on the road with him now and am sick of people's lack of respect for truck drivers? I'm sorry. I'll step off my soap box now :)
Anyhow, where was I? Oh, yeah. I was talking about me...my favorite thing to do! I have a small, yet fabulous group of people that I can truly call my friends and for that, I am grateful. Not many people have true friends these days. It's a shame. I am one of the few lucky adults to still have all four of my grandparents still living. That may change soon, as we just found out that my grand-father is terminally ill. He is a strong man though, and I don't think he'll go down without a fight, so who knows...he may out-live us all! At least that is what I am hoping for!
Enough about me. I've never been too great at describing myself. What you see is what you get. I promise you'll get to know me much better by subscribing to my blog and following me on twitter. The real me always comes out when I write!
Until next time, love like there's no tomorrow and, for good-ness sake, respect truck drivers!
