I will be a cat mom in less than 2 months and it is honestly the most exciting feeling I’ve ever felt, which may actually sound pathetic but it is literally all I’ve wanted for a long time.
I love to hike; it’s one of the only things that gives me life, scares me, leaves me breathless, and makes me feel the strongest all at the same time.
I coach high school soccer and love it!
I taught kindergarten for 4 years, I currently teach 3rd, but I’m still searching for “my grade”. (I loved K and I am LOVING 3rd, but I don’t think either of these grades are “the one”)
I rode my bicycle (yes, like, a bike, not a motorcycle) from Augusta, Maine to New York City this past summer with my boyfriend and it was the most unforgettable experience ever (more on this another time!)
I love chocolate. LOVE it.
I love having my nails painted, but I find it so discouraging to do them because it always gets messed up (even if my boyfriend does everything for me for an hour+ after I do them just to make sure I don’t ruin them)
I have 7 tattoos and can’t wait to continue adding!
I love to shop. Mostly clothes. Lots of unnecessary pillows (but really are any pillows unnecessary?).
I love a good girls night; I totally miss middle/high school sleepovers.
I tutor after school a couple nights a week and love it.
I love calzones almost as much as I love chocolate.
My boyfriend and I started playing Bananagrams almost daily and it’s become my most favorite thing we do together.
I love to create HIIT workouts to do.
My favorite flowers are daisies. Original are the best, however, I absolutely love the color dyed ones, too.
Garlic is literally life; however, I think I’ve developed an intolerance. Is that a thing that can happen?
My favorite piece of jewelry is a ring my mom got made for me on my “golden birthday”. We designed it together and it is something I will cherish (and wear!) forever.
When my ex boyfriend broke up with me, I took up jujitsu. It was one of the most soul finding missions of my life. It taught me more than I could ever put in to words, though maybe some day this month I’ll try.
My Netflix go-to is New Girl. (but my favorite show is Suits)
My hair is a ridiculous daily hassle
I ran a marathon this past September and I truly had so many emotions during the whole thing it was overwhelming.
I am a sister of Delta Phi Epsilon!
I coach Girls on the Run- a running/self/healthy relationship building program for 3-5 grade girls
My brother moved to St. Louis last year and I have only seen him once (for one hour) since he’s been gone and some days it really gets to me.
I’m what some may call a “townie teacher”. I am teaching in, essentially, the same town I grew up in.
I’ve never left Maine. (See #25). I never, ever, wanted to stay in Maine (let alone 20 minutes from the house I grew up in), but…here I am, and some days it’s good, others…..
I love music. LOVE it. I’m in desperate need of new jams, though. Send me your top songs- I’m a huge Ben Howard/Ben Rector/Jon Bellion/NOAH KAHAN fan type of music
Oceans bring out the carefree side of me. (and the best salty beach hair)
I drive a Subaru Forester and I love it.
I hate doing the dishes.
I love to write, but don’t make time for it enough.
