Self portrait Tuesday- Introduce yourself

A few more tid-bits to help introduce myself.

I hate the way I look in pictures! All of them! I don’t even have one wedding picture up in my house. V sad!

I talk to myself…a lot! I am humiliated on a regular basis as I notice people watching me in places like the grocery store.

One of my favorite things to do is lay on a blanket on the grass in the sun (and hopefully a breeze) and read.

I love fish tanks. They are so soothing and lovely! I would love to be a marine biologist and study fish and marine mammals.

I love to twirl around my kitchen with my head back and my eyes closed. It is big and I can twirl three times from the entry way to the back counter. It makes me feel happy instantly, free and a bit like a kid again.

I don’t call me friends enough. I mean to, I really do. I think I wait until I will have uninterrupted time and it just doesn’t happen. I love my girl and need to show it more! I am thinking about Beth, Margaret, Mary, Kristen and all my Jen’s!

It is just ridiculous how much I love gardens and flowers. They just lift my spirits instantly!

I really want to live out of the US. Ever since I was a kid I always wanted to live in England, I am a huge anglophile!! I would love to live anywhere in Europe. Now more than ever, I just don’t like the direction our country is going.

This is great!!! I can totally picture you twirling in your kitchen. And I can understand where you are coming from with wanting to live outside the States- England is heaven. I want to live in Italy for awhile, enjoy teh sun and culture and history.

You have such pretty lips!

I love laying on a blanket in the sun too, but only on cooler days. I hate the humidity and too much heat.

Like the continued intro......

I spin in my house too, although in three spins I can spin from one end of my house to the other :). I also hate photos of myself, none on the shelves here! You however, are lovely.

you should not be worried about
how you look in pictures...they
always look sweet from here...
(heh. perhaps i should
practice what i preach though)

and i so get you
about the flowers and gardens
and instant happiness...

I love that you admitted to talking to yourself "...a lot"--rest assured that you are not the only one being humiliated in the check-out line!

Great list! I loved meeting you some more, learning things about you!

P.S. I'm nervous because June is filling up here - and I'm going home at the end of it - when are you coming? When are you in London??
