Hi, my name is Beverly. 

I've observed that it takes about 9 months on average to really get to know me. (Just sayin' don't get your hopes up on our first date.) If you want to know something, please ask!

I like quotes; they remind me to keep things in perspective:
"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."
"Don't give up what you want most for what you want now."
“If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” ―William Morris
