8 Random Things

Dear Mindy at The Wish Studio tagged me, so here is a little about me...

*We have to post these rules before we give you the facts.
*Players start with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
*People who are tagged write their own blog post about their eight things and include these rules.
*At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged and they should read your blog.

1. I love to travel and have had the opportunity to visit many parts of the world including Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Fiji, Mexico, Greece and Russia. I hope to add many more to that list.

2. I played the violin and cello while growing up and toured the world with a youth orchestra.

3. I love watching movies, but can almost never remember their endings.

4. My list of life goals includes having a book published. I'm a firm believer in stating your dreams so that they come true.

5. I am completely drawn to the Amish lifestyle and love to read books about it. However, it would be just about impossible for me to give up my camera...laptop...blogging...

6. My husband and I have both been interested in adoption since we were children and our dreams came true when we adopted our son Nikolai from Russia last year. We later found out that Nikolai was born the same time we made our decision to adopt.

7. I love to go to country auctions. I love the excitement of bidding...the atmosphere...chatter of the auctioneers...

8. I had to borrow this one from Mindy's list, but I really connected with this one. I love to read, but I have to own the books...there is something about the connection with the stories and the comfort of being surrounded by them...

9. I'm a pack rat. I believe it is somehow ingrained in me that I need to keep everything. I'm really fighting this now and learning to purge all but my favorite, most treasured objects.

10. I have an enormous fear of clowns, but happen to have a friend who is a professional clown.

Now I'm tagging...bfmomma, Artsy Fartsy, Patty's Design Blog, Lamplight Designs, The adventures of cassie, Designs by Jamie, Sweatpeas, Grow Wild...
