Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here.
Sorry, was that too short? Ok, here are a few things you may or may not want to know about moi…
1- I do not actually speak French. (But I’d like to.)
2- If I could read books for a living, I would. Also, I would watch SVU marathons. I think that’s called being “independently wealthy.”
3- Somewhere around our third date, I poked my now husband in the foot with a fork…lightly. (I think he liked my spunk.) Also, on our first date, he ordered “the Panquake” and I knew we’d be in it for the long haul.
4- I pulled my best April Fool’s prank on my parents in sixth grade when I brought home a detention slip signed by a teacher. It said I had been caught smoking in the girls bathroom. Mom and Dad weren’t all that amused.
5- My eleven-year-old is better than me at math.
6- I record the name and date of every movie I see and every book I read because I am an obsessive cataloger. Then, at the end of each year, I look back and count them all to see how many I’ve seen/read compared to other years.
7- I think tattered is better than pristine. Generally.
8- For my wedding I collected more than 150 milk glass (or faux milk glass) flower vases. My mom and grandma helped me scour thrift stores until we had enough to spread about ten across each dinner table. We filled them with white wildflowers at the wedding. It was gorgeous.
9- Someone once asked me, “If you could eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?” My answer: donuts. Hands down. Donuts. For the rest of my very short, unhealthy life.
10- I like to sew bunnies.
There, how was that?
p.s. Looking for Gypsy Mind? Here it is.
