I've always wanted to know more about the women behind their blogs so I am hoping that this will help some of you get to know me!
Are you an optimist or a pessimist?
I feel like I am an optimist, but my sense of humor tends to be self depricating but it's not meant to be pessimistic. Life always tends to look a little better if you want it to. :)
Are you close to your family?
I am very close with my family. Even though we all live apart, they are never far in my heart. We keep in touch often and whenever we meet up (usually in Austin, Texas) it's like no time has passed.
Do you have any pets?
I have two little chihuahuas that live with me and they are my babies. They are very active as you can tell from the photograph.
I am very partial to this little sugar lamb who lives at home in Texas with my parents. She has been with us for close to 13 years now. She's just the sweetest.
What makes you happy?
Anything having to do with crafting, cooking, hanging out with my family or friends, drinking Starbucks, reading, watching cheesy Christmas Hallmark movies, and hiking. Actually, the list doesn't even end there ~ a lot of things make me happy.
Would you prefer to live in the country or the city?
Definitely the country! I live in the city now and hate it.
How and when did you meet your significant other?
I met G through his sister in law who I was working with at the time. I went over to their family's barbecue for a horribly obvious blind date/set up and when I walked in the door. I thought to myself "I hope that one is G" and it was! We have been dating on and off for five years and he proposed on New Year's Day 2013. He is my best friend and I am so thankful that our paths crossed so many years ago.
How did you know you wanted to become a teacher?
I feel like this is God's plan for me and it was never a question about what career I was going to choose. Even when I was little, I used to ask my teacher for extra copies of worksheets and line up my stuffed animals pretending to be the teacher. I know that some days are challenging, but in the end it's all worth it.
