Six Things on April Sixth

Well in light that I am now officially a year older I thought I would let you guys in on a few things about me. 
So here is six things about me on April 6th.

1.  I danced classical ballet for 10 years (ages 8-18).
Yup I was rocking the toe shoes, tights, and the leotard.

2. I grew up in Maine, live in Hawaii for four and a half years, traveled through Belize, surfed through Costa Rica, backpacked through Europe, volunteered my way through Romania, and honeymooned in the Caribbean.
What I mean to say is I LOVE to travel. 

3.  I have to eat things like m&ms in even numbers.
And I have to eat the same number on each side of my mouth.
Neurotic huh?

4.  I love to sing.
In the shower, doing the dishes, in the doesn't really matter.
I sang as a kid all the way through college.
And now the neighbors just get to hear it.
Don't worry I am a regular Aretha Franklin.

5.  I never thought I would get married.
I pictured myself driving my way through Africa in a land rover helping children, or animals, you know something cute.
And as single as could be.
I guess you can never say never.

6.  I am "word sensitive".
I put that in quotes because I totally made up the diagnosis.
Some words I can't hear without cringing.
Some words just straight up gross me out.

I hope you enjoyed me bearing my soul for you this morning. 
I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed Easter weekend!
