15 Interesting Facts About Myself {Summer #BlogChallenge}

  1. My mum is from Northern Ireland, and I have been over 11 times.  
  2. In 2006, I spent 6 weeks in Karamoja, Uganda.
  3. 6 years ago, I swore I would NEVER marry Drew, but 3 years ago we were about to get engaged.  I'm glad I was wrong 6 years ago.
  4. Since 1995, I knew I wanted to name a daughter of mine Charis.  15 years later that happened.
  5. I took flute lessons for seven years.
  6. But, only took piano lessons for one year.
  7. I like to knit.
  8. But have no idea how to crochet.
  9. I once sat beside a hit man on an airplane.
  10. I am a tea snob.  My Granny came over to visit us in 1985 and HATED American tea.  She would then send over 400+ Nambarrie tea bags to us in the States at least 2-3 times/year.
  11. I take my tea with milk and 1/2 tsp. sugar.
  12. Growing up I disliked coffee, but started drinking it in college and nursing school.
  13. I take my coffee with half-and-half.  No sugar.
  14. My all time favorite desert is Pavlova.  Hopefully, I'll post the recipe before too long, but I must warn you, it has way too much refined sugar.
  15. I would love to go to Prince Edward Island because of my love of Anne of Green Gables.
Hope you enjoyed getting to know me a wee bit more!
