10 Random Facts About The Real Me

You may have heard that we moved for my husband’s GI fellowship (updated note: this was in 2019)!

We said our bittersweet goodbye to Cleveland where we have met lifelong friends. That was one of the hardest things I had ever done.

Since then, it’s been  I N S A N E  around here. I’m still working as a full-time recruiter and my husband is a brand new GI fellow.

And we’re still surrounded by boxes.

Boxes everywhere.

I feel like a wagon with the wheels about to pop off 😂

Despite all that needs to get done, we’re setting time aside and helping our three small kids explore their new city. This is the time to enjoy the rest of the summer while it’s still nice out.

I’m going to write a fun post because I’m taking some break time from blogging about my usual topics so we can get to know each other better! ❤️

In the meanwhile, because my bandwidth is limited, please help me spread the word about my blog and “like” my Facebook Page!

10 Random Facts About Me

  1. I blog 95% of the time on my phone as I’m putting the kids to sleep. Once their eyes are closed, I whip out my phone, the world is quiet, and I get to work.
  2. We had a macaron bar at our wedding at a time when most people (at least where we lived) had never tried one before. It was a hit. And our guests still remember it today.
  3. I don’t care for fresh flowers because I have a hard time parting with them when I have to throw them away. But I do love potted orchids because they keep.
  4. My favorite shows are Sherlock Holmes (with Benedict Cumberbatch) and Downton Abbey.
  5. I love to play games with my kids. My favorites are puzzles, hide and seek, and activity books.
  6. I like genealogy and having a connection to my family’s past. I studied French as a minor because I wanted to speak it as my grandparents did. But I should have learned Spanish because I’ve never had to use my French!
  7. I did classical piano and Tae Kwon Do until the end of high school. It gave me a boost of confidence as a young woman.
  8. My dream is to do medical missions alongside my husband in places like Vietnam and Cambodia that have a special place in my heart.
  9. My husband, who was inspired to become a GI doc because of his love for food, taught me how to make some of my best dishes. Verdict is out there if student has surpassed teacher! 😉
  10. I grew up an only child until I was 11 when my sibling was born. I never want to feel as alone as I did as a kid again. I love the noise, chaos, and hustle & bustle of large families and get-togethers.
