It's really lovely to get to read more about you.
You have a beautiful family! I'm also quite shy but love to talk as well; it kind of makes me feel like an oxymoron of sorts. But, the people who matter know me well enough that I don't have to explain myself. I also wanted to be a nurse for the longest time, even took most of the core classes for it in school. I might go back to taking classes, one of these days.
Thank you for sharing a bit about yourself. It's nice to have an opportunity for a formal introduction, of sorts.
