Stephanie from Macaroni and Cheesecake tagged me in her blog to share 7 interesting facts about myself. I don't usually do these things, but I thought this was a fun way to share things with my readers...so here it goes!
1. I think my love for cooking started with my Easy Bake Oven when I was a kid. Actually, as embarrassing as this is to share, my sister (who is younger than me) enjoyed the Easy Bake Oven just as much a I did. So I was able to play with it well into my late teens!!! Sometimes having a younger sister has its perks!!!
2. My name comes from The Sound Of Music. I seriously could watch this movie over and over and it would never get old to me! Many people say that I actually resemble Charmian Carr (the character who played Liesl).
3. Growing up, I always had a strong passion for computers. I know boring right!! I actually thought I was going to go into Computer Programming for the longest time. In high school, I got involved in Theater and pursued trying to learn as much backstage technical knowledge as I could. That inspired me and I began to get a passion for Theater/Television and learning all the details that go into making a Production/Show happen. Today I am a Video Editor and love being a part of what goes on Television!!
4. I studied Sign Language in High School and on into College. I hold a special place in my heart for the deaf community. They are amazing people!
5. My husband and I love to travel. We make it a point to plan at least one trip a year to somewhere new and exciting! We love exploring new places and cultures! Especially the food! I swear in my next life I will be a Travel Agent! I don't mean to toot my own horn, but I plan a pretty mean trip! I work really hard to find places that make me feel like a local...not a tourist!! If you ever need tips let me know!!
6. One of my favorite things to eat (when it comes to dessert at least) in this world is S'mores!!! I love them!!! There is nothing better than sitting in front of a fire with a warm S'more in my hand!!
7. I really enjoy drinking wine! I am not really a drinker, but when it comes to wine, I can't resist. My passion started when I was in College...I took a Wine Tasting course (and yes I got credit for getting tipsy!). It was great because it taught me how to appreciate wine. I knew at a young age how to pair things and what to look for in a good bottle of wine!
And now comes the part where I get to tag other people! I can't imagine all of you will do it, but I enjoyed sharing my facts so maybe you will too!
