A Little About Me:
Hi! I'm Jacquie and I'm originally from Duluth, Minnesota. I absolutely love my hometown and I try to visit my parents there whenever I get the chance. In case you were wondering, I'm Peruvian and, yes, I'm fortunate to have been able to visit mis abuelos y mi famila (my grandparents and family) in Peru several times. I'm hoping to go back again soon! My Catholic faith is important to me and my husband and I met at our church, and for our honeymoon we traveled to Rome to receive a special newlywed blessing. I've never met any celebrities, but I can say I've met the Pope! I can't stand food with fruit chunks in it, but I love anything with coconut in it. I'm terrible at sports, but I'm pretty awesome at Wii bowling. I love dogs, but my favorite animal is the llama. I'm a stickler for good grammar, spelling and manners, but secretly I'm also one of the goofiest people you'll ever meet.
