7 Random Facts About Me

1. I was a dancer for 13 years while growing up. I took tap, jazz, ballet, and gymnastics. I did it all!

2. As many amazing places as I've traveled to with my H, one of my favorite places in the whole world is still the summer camp I went to every year in New Hampshire. 

3. During my senior year of college, I interned at the Connecticut legislature. Such an amazing opportunity!

4. When I was 7, my violin school performed at Carnegie Hall. I kept begging my mom to quit, and she allowed me to once I performed at Carnegie Hall. Back then I didn't get it, but am now so appreciative of such a great experience.

5. My H and I went to the same college, and even graduated on the same day, but didn't meet until 2 years later. I have my BFF and MOH to thank for that introduction :)

6. I totally tried on my wedding dress yesterday on our 2 year anniversary and it still fits! Wooty woot! 

7. Other than getting my wisdom teeth out, I've never had any surgeries or broken any bones *knock on wood*.
