7 Things You May Not Know About Me

I was challenged by Soulbrush to list 7 things you may not know about me so here goes:
  1. I lived on a 40 ft sailboat from the age of 14 to 17 - we sailed from Florida through the Bahamas, Caribbean and Panama Canal, up the west coast of Central America, Mexico, the Western United States and Canada and all the way back to Alaska.

  2. I am the middle child in a family of 5 girls.

  3. I love my pets - I have three dogs and an aquarium at the moment.

  4. I've been married for coming up on 26 years. We have 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren...so far.

  5. I enjoy drawing, painting, crafting, and writing but I HATE sewing. It makes me cranky.

  6. I am a Christian which is central to my life.

  7. I was born and raised in Alaska - I want to live somewhere else. Somewhere warmer.

I missed Cactus Monday again! Bummer!

I have always thought I would like to live in AK. I think it is the most gorgeous state. I don't know about the long dark days of winter though.

Living on a sailboat sounds like about the most awesome and adventurous thing I have ever heard!!!!!

Happy 'almost' anniversary.

Thanks for sharing.

Didn't know sewing made you cranky. I really like it. Very soothing for me.

I new a few of those things about you, but it's nice to get a better picture. I didn't know you were ready to move. How does Hubby feel about that?
