My birthday is on February 23. While I keep this blog primarily focused on the girls, I decided on the 23rd of each month, I’m going to devote a post to me. I’m going to share two or three random things about me, and I hope it will be fun (and not too scary!) to look back after a year and see what kind of picture these random things paint.
So here goes…
1) I studied Russian language in college. While I can’t say I’ve put my studies to very good use, I will always be grateful to my parents for allowing me to follow my passion. I had some wonderful life experiences, including the opportunity to study in Russia my junior year of college. Among many other gifts, I have a wonderful Russian “family” whom I hope to introduce my girls to one day.
2) I love measuring spoons. I have several cheap-o plastic sets, but my favorites fall on opposite ends of the spectrum. A few years ago my dad asked what I wanted for Christmas. I told him I wanted a really nice set of measuring spoons from Williams-Sonoma. That’s one of those frivolous purchases I wouldn’t make for myself (as the plastic spoons serve their purpose just fine), but oh! how I love them!!! They’re really heavy, and the imprinted font on each spoon seems so regal. I feel like I should be on a cooking show when I use them. :)
And on the other end of the spectrum, I have my mom’s aluminum measuring spoons. I would imagine they’re a solid 40 years old. They look pretty rough, but heaven knows they’ve been used a gazillion times. That’s one of those items I would grab on my way out of a burning house, for sure.
So there you have it…random, I told you!
