ok...you got me. i'll give in and take part in these little 'get to know each other' games. in response to a few other lists i've already read, here is mine. a list of 20 random things about me.
1. i am an artist at heart. i can paint and sketch fairly well...though i rarely do.
2. i cannot stand mushrooms. yuck! i know that they are slugs that have crawled up on my plate!
3. if i could go back to school i would either get my masters in teaching or become a doula (a birthing assistant)
4. i dream of having a full garden of my own...to have immediate access to organic produce...though, I have absolutely no interest in tending it.
5. i prefer to drive a stickshift...but had to finally give that up for a mommy-mobile.
6. i love talking about the topics that most people are uncomfortable talking about. (poop, sex... to name a few)
7. i have modeled nude for a professional painter friend. (shhh...don't tell. nobody reads this thing anyway).
8. i am shy in large crowds and outgoing in small ones.
9. i am deathly afraid of snakes and deep dark waters.
10. i love every season - sunshine, falling leaves, snow, and blooming buds.

15. i am completely ignorant about politics.
16. i love sushi.
17. i want to someday live in a small intentional community that shares a sustainable farm...gardening together, eating together, working together, worshiping together, and growing our families together.

19. i hate to be late and pride myself in sticking to commitments.
20. i am too honest for my own good. can you tell?
