A dear friend tagged me for this me-me. I have never done one on a blog before, so this should be fun =) 

1.Do you have a favorite love song that makes you feel warm and fuzzy?

Definitely "Lucky" by Jason Mraz and Colbie Caillat 

2.Do you remember the first time you really felt God tugging at your heart? 

When I was 8 years old, I remember beginning to realize that God was more than a story. He was real. He wanted to be my friend. When I was 11, I began seeking Him out for myself and a wonderful romance has thus ensued for the past 14 years. I love reading His love letters to me on a daily basis. =) 

3.Do you remember a particular time when someone encouraged or complimented you and it changed your whole attitude, giving you a better day?

Just last Sunday morning at church, one of my former Sunday school students came up to me and told me I am still her favorite Sunday school teacher and that she loves how joyful I am. That is high praise coming from such a young one's mouth. I had tears in my eyes as she gave me a huge hug. I have worked in Sunday school for 7 years now and you can never be sure what kind of impact you have. But last Sunday, I found out I have made a difference in at least one young person's life. And to me.. that is priceless. 

4.What is/was your very favorite subject in school and why?

READING! I have always been a voracious bookworm and now love having the opportunity to introduce students to some of my favorite books! 

5.What is your preference of a pet - dog, cat, fish, or none?

A resounding NONE! Too many allergies to be able to enjoy a pet thoroughly I am afraid. 

6.Name one thing that you really like about your personality.

Hmmm... I like my creativity. I enjoy sharing ideas with others. That is why I love to blog! I get to be inspired by others while sharing my creations, too =)

7.Name one thing that you would like to improve about yourself.

I need to be able to go with the flow better. Working as a teacher, I have learned to be flexible in that environment, but have found my self-over compensating in my home environment. I like there to be "a place for everything and everything in its place" as the saying goes to the point that not only am I a neat freak, but I am also very careful over what calendar engagements I get involved with. If a friend wants to do something spur of the moment, it is really hard for me to adjust to that ~ even though I know I will have a fun time. Gotta work on this! 

8.Name one thing that you are very thankful for and can't imagine living without.

My amazingly kind, sweet, witty, and thoughtful fiance!
