I am Deanna and when I'm not working, a perfect day includes staying in my pajamas and cuddling with my bulldog, Manny. Awesome days also include walking, biking, reading, writing, shopping and being out in the middle of nowhere. Coffee is a given in all of this. My guilty pleasure is watching true crime TV.
