Cyntoia Brown has revealed that she's "loving every single thing" since her recent release from prison.

Brown was released from prison this month after 15 years behind bars.

"I am loving every single thing about being in my own home," she told NBC News.

"Being able to cook for myself and decide how I want to spend my day feels amazing," she said. "Those simple pleasures that people take for granted are what I looked forward to when I sat in prison dreaming of freedom."

Brown is also now a married woman. Shortly before being released from prison she married recording artist J. Long, formerly of the R&B group Pretty Ricky.

She served time in prison after she shot and killed Johnny Mitchell Allen, 43, who she said had paid her for sex when she was a minor. She says she feared for her life when she saw him reaching for what she believed was a gun while they were in bed at his home.
