"Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale"
"I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it."
-Charles R. Swindoll
"A truth that's told with bad intent beats all the lies you can invent."
"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."
"When you find it necessary to mock the happiness of others, your own life is full of emptiness and void of joy"
The name "Immortal Princess" was taken from a poem written for me by a very close friend. After his tragic death in 1999, I began using it as part of my e-mail address. and then as my username when I joined EZBoard in 2001.
I am a Texas girl. I was born and raised there, and will always consider Texas my home. In my adult life I've lived in Hawaii, California, and now North Carolina. I've had the privilege of being exposed to many different cultures and ways of life. I have a very diverse set of friends, and they are scattered all over the country.
On November 25 2002, I met a man and a friendship began. In June of 2003, the friendship turned into a casual dating relationship. He was sixteen years my junior, so I honestly did not think it would go any further. Well, much to my surprise, it continued to grow, and then in November 2003, a romance began. By April of 2004, this romance had grown into a serious love, and we began to discuss the possibility of a future together.
On November 23 2004, in the middle of a wicked Texas thunderstorm, he got down on his knees in the pouring rain and placed a beautiful ring on my finger. Six months later, on April 16 2005, in a romantic fairytale-like ceremony, in front of 100 close friends and family, I married the man of my dreams.
I love to travel - I've had the privilege of visiting many places across the United States, and I hope to visit many more. I love taking road trips - I find the journey every bit as enjoyable as the destination.
Ever since I was four years old I've been fascinated with Sci-fi and the paranormal, and anything to do with vampires. I also love listening to music, especially live music - I've been to many many concerts. My taste is very diverse - I have almost every genre represented in my music collection.
When I was a teenager I discovered that taking very long soaking baths was a great way to relieve stress, not to mention it does wonders for moisturizing the skin. It's not uncommon for me to spend three hours in the bath tub, especially in the winter time.
When I was very young, my grandmother inspired in me a love for collecting dolls. She traveled all over the world, and brought me a doll from each of the countries she visited. I have a very large porcelain doll collection. My favorite ones are the life size babies. She also inspired in me a passion for cooking. I began cooking for my family when I was 12 years old and I really enjoy it. I was taught to make everything from scratch, and it's still the way I cook today.
