Today's My Birthday & 31 Random Facts about Me

31 years ago, I was born around 3 PM in the afternoon, but as my husband tells me, I am "24 for eighth year in a row." When we were dating, I turned 25 and was not wanting to turn 25. I bemoaned, "People are old when they are 25." Now, I laugh at that statement. If 25 is old, what will I say I am at 40 or 50?

Today, I figured I'd blog about 31 random facts about me; they're in no particular order. Hope you enjoy getting to "know" me better.

  1. Belated bday wishes to you, Sarah! We share favorite movies, I was taught to crochet by my G'ma and mom, and I'm also working my dream job. I used to read Grisham when I commuted to Portland but haven't read him in years. ~Lisa
