because there is more to my story

I long to sit down with you and shed some light on other corners of my life. Every facet makes up who I am, and in an effort to meet one the purposes of jana’s three dresses, I aim to live authentically and be more transparent with you, reader.

So, I thought I could start out by having some fun and letting you know some facts about me.

1. I was a band geek. Yep, I played the flute and piccolo. I even did marching band. I actually liked band camp. Some of my best high school memories.

2. I was on the Flag Corp in Junior High.  I thought twirling big flags while marching in the band was super cool.

3. I lived in Costa Rica for three years with my family from the ages of 9 to 12. We were missionaries with ALFALIT and UMCOR.

4. I speak Spanish fluently.

5. My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip. Oh, who am I kidding? I am an ice cream fanatic and will try almost any flavor.

6. I have a 3-year-old Golden Retriever named Daisy, whom I adore. Sweetest dog ever!

7. I recently began indoor rock wall climbing. And love it! I am about to turn 38 and I am in the best shape of my life.

8. When my boys were 6 months and 2.5 years old, our family moved to Belgium to live for three years.  I speak “un petite” of French.

9. I much prefer taking long road trips over flying. I am a wimp on take-offs. The irony is that my husband is a pilot.

10. In my former life (pre-kids and stay-at-home-mom stint), I was a Advanced Nurse Practitioner specializing in Women’s Health. I am still licensed and certified. But, I will need a good refresher course before jumping back into it again…if, I jump back into it again.

11. Until May 2012, I have only followed and read {sporadically} one blog. I was barely even aware the online community.

12. My childhood dream was to sing and dance on Broadway.

13. My husband asked me out of our first date in an elevator leaving coffee hour at church. I was trapped! How could I say no?

14. Right after my husband asked me out, I went home, called the guy I was dating (who lived 3,200 miles away), and broke up with him…for the second time.

15. My favorite childhood memories include board games, popcorn, late nights around the kitchen table, and long conversations about everything under the sun.

These are a few things that make up my life story. I am so thankful for all of the memories and experiences. Every day is an adventure and I am filled with anticipation of where He is taking me next.
