When I read a blog, I always want to know more about the author. So here is a little bit about me:
1) Where are you from?
I have lived in Wilmington, NC since I was 8 years old, so that is home for me. I was born in South Carolina and lived in Virginia for a few years as well.
2) What made you decide to start this blog?
I love reading blogs and the knowledge/information that can be gleaned from them. Through others’ blogs, I have learned about topics ranging from how to do my hair to having a home birth. I have enjoyed learning about new topics, but I wanted to be able to share my own thoughts and opinions.
3) What do you do?
I manage several convenience stores. There is never a dull moment!
4) Where did you go to college?
I went to the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I majored in Elementary Education and minored in Sociology.
5) How did you go from elementary education to running convenience stores?
It would take a very lengthy post to map out my life over the last 5 years, but the gist of it is, God’s timing and plan is perfect, and He’s taken me down a path I couldn’t have even imagined for myself, but I am incredibly thankful for it.
6) How and when did you meet your husband?
My husband, Jeff, and I met in the fourth grade. He started attending the private school that I had been attending since my family had moved to Wilmington. However, we weren’t really even friends until our junior year of high school. We started hanging out a lot and towards the end of our senior year (2005), we started dating. We got married 3 years later on August 2, 2008.
7) What are some of your favorite things?
I enjoy photography a lot. I am just an amateur, but I love documenting life through photos. I also love spending time with friends and family, manicures and pedicures, reading, shopping, and going on dates with my hubby. My absolute favorite TV show is Gilmore Girls. I have all 7 seasons on DVD. “Friends” is a close second. Some of my favorite books are: The Hunger Games trilogy, The Twilight series, Moloka’i , Something Borrowed, Something Blue, The Chronicles of Narnia, Safe Haven, The Notebook, The Giver, and Little Women.
