I turned 26 a couple of weeks ago. I decided I would share 26 things about myself that you may or may not know about me…
1. I am small in stature, but I don’t often feel like it except when my husband hugs me…or carries me around.
2. I love saturated milk fat. This means heavy whipping cream, ice cream, whole milk, custards…
3. I am learning to be more expressive.
4. I want to write books.
5. I have a very keen sense of sound, I can hear lots of details in music and in life that others seem to overlook. I can mimic sounds and movie quotes well.
6. I was an only child until the age of 18, when my mom remarried and I got an awesome step-sister, Alex.
7. I am a guitar player but I have a musical love affair with percussion…don’t tell my Taylor.
8. I like bright colors for decor in the kitchen.
9. I am A LOT sillier than many think.
10. I am not afraid of public speaking.
11. I don’t think that my grammar is very good in writing. I like to use dashes and …s in writing because it feels like how I think and speak.
12. I have a HIGH value for clear, honest, and compassionate communication.
13. I am an INFJ.
14. I LIKE TO CAPITALIZE WORDS TO SHOW HOW I FEEL, I realize this may be obnoxious to some.
15. I love the Pioneer Woman’s confession section of her blog. (Showin some P-DUB love!)
16. Half of me would love to live a nearly totally secluded life in the woods.
17. Ben and I don’t have television or internet at home. (But we do have smart phones) We are not anti-tv or internet, we just don’t have it for this season of life.
18. I dream of recording music with an amazingly talented and anointed worship team, in a big living room, with hard wood floors, lamps with soft light, comfy leather furniture, filled with a background choir of people who love Jesus.
19. I am unbelievably kind if I “wake up” while sleeping. My kindness is demonstrated to Ben by pulling his covers up, patting his back, and making sympathetic noises like “awww…”
20. I am a bike horn in a sea of flutes.
21. Ben and I have our own language made up of shortened and repeated words.
22. Our car is affectionately named “the pimp mobile” because of it’s low ride and gangster good-looks.
23. I love herbal teas…peppermint, chamomile, and my new fave apple cinnamon (Celestial Seasonings is my favorite brand).
24. I highly appreciate a good beard.
25. I navigate my world by smell.
26. My name means Beloved.
