If you really knew me...

Well, I'm jumping on the "if you really knew me" bandwagon.  I actually think these little prompts are quite entertaining to blog on, and it's been fun to read other bloggers' posts.  There are so many facets that make up a person, and highlighting just a handful here and there is fun.  I say we all do this post periodically as a way to contiually share parts of ourselves that we may not feature in our blogging.

Anyway, without further ado, if you really knew me...

- you'd know my bookshelf is a revolving door; I voluntarily visit the Library at least once a week, and I love it.

- you'd know I hate eating cubed meat...for whatever reason it freaks me out!

- you'd know I value rational and realistic decisions.  I'm an emotional person, but I'm also far more Type A than B, so emotions or not, a decision had better be well-planned if you want kudos from me.

- you'd know that despite my love for Elizabeth Bennett's bewitchment of Mr. Darcy, Persuasion is actually my favorite Jane Austen novel.

- you'd know morning is my favorite time of day.  I love everything about it from the way the sunrise turns the mountains pink to the smell of freshly brewed coffee.  I love lazy, indulgent breakfasts, and being able to enjoy the peaceful quiet of a city just waking up.

- you'd know I can drink caffeine before bedtime and not have any issues sleeping...addiction tolerance at its finest!

- you'd know I was never an animal person until I started dating Tony.  His dogs won me over and now I'm mildly obsessed with them.

- you'd know my Mom is my best friend and walks with her are my favorite form of therapy.

- you'd know I talk in my sleep nearly every night, and walk in my sleep when I'm really stressed.  I've done this ever since I was little.

- you'd know I hate public speaking.  My chest gets blotchy, my voice loses its strength, and I appear uncomfortable.  I'm a natural introvert and it's so apparent in large crowds.  But, you'd also know I'm known for my laugh, my babbling, and my sarcasm...so long as I'm around people I'm comfortable with.

- you'd know I enjoy a good rainstorm, especially if I'm snuggled up on a covered porch with a mug of tea (or a glass of red) and a book in hand.

- you'd know I love Fall.  Period.  End of Story.  It's the season I live for.

One of your posts said that you finally visited! What did you think? I"m also like you, I'm an introvert in big crowds but also like having fun with people I'm comfortable around. I can totally drink loads of coffee right before bed and still crash....bad, we know! : ) ha ha. Can't wait to hear more from your beautiful blog. Keep writing girl!!!

  2. P.S. I've always wanted to visit CO and maybe I will one day!
