Getting to Know You

My friend Britt (who I take tons of blog tips from) posted one of these last week and since they’re a little of a throwback to those old chain emails, I figured I’d give it a shot! Maybe you’ll learn something new about me! Feel free to join in (in the comments section), and let’s learn about each other!

flag photoFour names that people call me, other than my real name:
