51 Things about Me

I thought it would be fun to let my readers into my life a little more than usual.  A blog isn’t only about reading useful information is it?  It is a real person with a real life and interests who is writing!  And, I like to get to know the personalities behind my favorite blogs, so I thought I’d give everyone a small window into me.  I will even provide a picture that my husband took of me last week that I don’t like.  How’s that for transparency??

    I knew we were twins separated at birth! Not identical ones, of course. Except for the running stuff, I could use this as a list to describe me. (I ran for a few years in middle and high school until I realized at the start of my senior year that I hated it, at which point I flung myself into theatre and choir. It was a much better fit.) I especially could relate to the unique juxtoposition of 29 and 30.
