1) I love to play the piano. I'm actually not that great at it, but I love it. My mom put me in piano lessons at the age of 4, and I took lessons until I was 17, so you think I would be goo,d but I'm only a little good. However, I absolutely love playing. When I get upset, or I'm angry, this is one of the best ways to calm me down. Becasue of my love of the piano, I can listen to piano music 24/7!
2)I am an actress at heart. In college, I acted with a small theatre and had the best time. I was the Pink Lady "Jan" in the production of Grease...you know, the one who loves the twinkies and wine! To me, acting is a way to become someone you're not and experience the world through someone else's eyes. I haven't done anything lately becasue with a wedding and getting married, I haven't had a ton of time.
3) I love real estate! Through high school and college I was an assistant for a real estate agent and I have had a love for houses and real estate ever since. I love to see the latest architecural techniques builders use. And I, like Caroline, love walking through homes that aren't quite finished yet...and then I think about what I would do to decorate if I lived in that house...and then imagine what my life would be like if I lived in that house...again, an actress at heart.
4) I love books and reading. When I was a little girl, I used to want to be a children's book author. During the summers, I would set up my mom's typewriter in my bedroom (because most people didn't have computers back then) and I would write stories - storeis about some of the craziest things - whatever my little mind came up with. Sometimes, I still think about writing - I made my best grades in school in English lit classes!
5)When I graduated college, I went to live and work in an orphanage in Honduras for 3 months. It was definitely an eye-opening expereince, and a difficult one at that, but I wouldn't take those 3 months back for anything in the world. Becasue of this "chapter" in my life, I truly learned what having the joy of the Lord meant.
6)I have an insane facination with tornados, but I FREAK OUT if I even hear there is a tornado touchdown close to where I live. I just think that tornados are one of the most amazing creations God has ever made, but I am really scared to death of them. Twister is one of my all-time favorite movies.
7) I wish I would have been born in the late 1800's. I would have LOVED to be a "true" southern belle - living in Charleston. I would have had a horse drawn carrriage and the biggest petty coat in town! I'm really a southern belle at heart, ya'll. Three years in a row, I was Scarlett O'Hara for Halloween!
Ok, now I tag,
