Interesting Things About Me

  1. I was a dance for 19 years. I started dancing when I was two and a half and continued until I was 20 years old. I have danced everything from ballet and pointe to riverdance and hip hop. I was even on a hip hop dance team in college!!
  2. When I was a sophomore in college I was diagnosed with Crohn’s Disease. I have been living with it ever since and have been able to manage it even through being pregnant with my son.
  3. My favorite thing to do in the winter is bake. My mother is an amazing baker and would always have homemade cookies at home. I hope to continue that tradition with my own family. I will even stay up till all hours of the night to make them for people.
  4. I competed for 2 years in bikini competitions. I would have continued to do it but got sick because of the regimented diet I was on. However, I love competing. Doing these competitions really showed me how to be strong and disciplined in order to accomplish my goal. I never placed lower than 4th and I also won my height class and the overall division at one competition.
  5. Speaking of being determined, I had my son naturally because I was too afraid of getting an epidural and I had it set in my mind that was what I was going to do.
  6. I love writing down quotes that I see in calligraphy. I learned how to do calligraphy from my art teacher in high school. I am hoping to use these skills to start some sort of business that I can do from home.
  7. My husband and I have been together for 10 years. In those 10 years I was gone for a month studying abroad in Paris, for 3 months doing an internship in LA, and he was gone for 4 months working in Chicago. We have discovered that our relationship is able to withstand many things and we are able to learn a lot about ourselves at the same time.

  1. Thanks for the nomination! 😀 If you want to make some money doing calligraphy, you should totally address people’s wedding invitations for them! When I was planning my wedding I was bummed that I have terrible handwriting and would loved to have been able to have some do calligraphy for me. Just a thought 😉
