Why, Thank You!

The lovely Louise at Lou Boos and Shoes tagged me with a Versatile Blogger award.  It means I'm supposed to share seven things about myself.  Well, it sounds like fun, but how do I decide what to tell you?  Well, here goes.  Seven extremely random things about me.

1. If I could go back to college, I'd major in English and Philosophy.  I've learned that your undergraduate major doesn't matter a whole lot when entering the business world, so why not study subjects that you find interesting?  I adored my English and Philosophy classes and wish I could've taken more.

2.  When I look at a dessert menu, I almost always opt for the fruity ones vs. the chocolate ones.  I am a lover of tarts.  Not that I don't adore chocolate.  I do.  But given the choice between a piece of chocolate cake and a mixed berry tart, I'm picking the berries every time.

3.  I don't chew gum.  Ever.  It makes my jaw hurt.  I have had TMJ issues throughout the years, and it's just not worth the pain.

4.  My favorite season is Fall.  It is gorgeous here in New England, and I love everything about it.  Blue skies, orange leaves, apple-picking, pumpkins, football, and crisp cool days.

5.  My current favorite moment of every day is right after dinner.  The boys get a burst of energy after leaving the dinner table, and they chase each other around, laughing and squealing.  Sometimes I use the time to clean up, do dishes, etc, but I've been trying to appreciate the time more.  I get down on the floor and join the tickle-sessions.  I chase the big boy around the house or around the yard.  I help the little boy climb up and down the porch stairs.  Every day, they get more and more independent.

6.  I really want to play my guitar today.  Can I make it happen?  Yes.  Even if I have to stick to songs the boys will dance to, I will pull it out today.  I'm determined.

7.  The thing I miss most about life before kids is having the time to sit and be still.  I am very good at relaxing, pondering, listening, resting, reflecting, and watching the sky.  I still try very hard to make sure I have some time every day to do this.  I always end my days in bed with a book, but I also need at least a few moments to allow my mind to wander.

I'd like to bestow this honor on the following lovely blogs:
My best blog buddy, Sara at Portland Sunshine
Diana at ExPresso
