About me!

This is me, Crystal Lynn.  

I am a young newlywed who lives in Georgia.  I recently graduated from Agnes Scott College in Decatur, GA with a Bachelor of Arts in Religious Studies.  I then completed my Masters of Arts in Teaching Multiple Subjects in the first online cohort of the MAT@USC program at the University of Southern California.  I am still waiting for my own classroom, a result of the economy's effects on Georgia education.  

My husband and I became engaged on October 17th, 2009 in front of the Alumnae Pond at Agnes Scott College.  It was absolutely memorable and beautiful.  We were married on October 16, 2010 in Newnan, GA, surrounded by loving family and friends.  I am so happy to be the new Mrs. Manis!

We have a cat named Buddy who is completely brain damaged from the run-ins he has had with walls, tables, etc.  Though not the brightest crayon in the box, he is definitely the most adorable cat I have ever seen.  He keeps us in stitches.  If we had a nickel for every time we said, "Look at him," we would be rich!

I am a happy girl when I'm with my friends and husband.  I love dreaming, plotting, and scheming about the future- anything from design to DIY-projects excite me!  I love reading and am passionate about educating young children.  Sometimes my creative eye is bigger than my wallet or time will allow, but I have great ambitions!
