HI! My name is Rashelle. Currently I live in Ankeny, Iowa. I have lived in several states including Utah (born and mostly raised), Arizona (attended some Junior and all of High School), Arkansas (where I learned that wonderful southern hospitality), and now Iowa (which has become home - for now.) =) I also consider Sweden a "second home" of sorts. I have spent many weeks there and I miss it.
The reason for my username is because I really am half Swedish... my Grandparents emigrated here in the 1950's and I take great pride in my homeland. :)
I am loving being here in Iowa... We are so close to Nauvoo, Illinois! What a wonderful place! Ya'll ought to attend the pageant. It is sooooo amazing!
I have attended school at Utah Valley University in Orem, UT for several years. I may end up returning at some point later this year or in 2015. But right now, I haven't fully decided.
I love to travel...I was most recently in Norway and Sweden (which was interesting--everywhere I went people told me they thought I looked like or even was the Crown Princess of Sweden--crazy huh? Haha)
My current dream vacations are New Zealand and England!! Anyone want to go there with me???
I love Doctor Who!!! If you love that show then you will understand me. LOL!!!! I love all things British!!
Lets see... I love the Military (thanks you wonderful people serving our country!) I have lived very close to 3 Air Force bases and have enjoyed listening to different planes fly over. In Arkansas it was the CONSTANT rumble of C-130's and in Tucson it was screeching A-10's. Mesa was a combination of commercial planes landing and little baby planes going to the local airport and awesome F 16's. One of my very most favorite things to do is to go to Air Shows!!
Basically, I am PASSIONATE about the things I love & I'm pretty much the biggest geek you'll ever meet!
I am in love with books... I don't read a whole lot lately because of time. But, just having a shelf full of beautiful books makes my heart happy.
