A girl doesn't need anyone who doesn't need her.

I'm Liz, and I'm 29. I'm married and have 2 awesome little girls. I love to do artwork (painting and drawing, a little sculpting), decorate cakes, and READ. I spend most of my time with my girls and husband, but love hanging out with friends, whether playing board games or BBQing, or just hanging out.
