I subscribed to a new parenting blog today that I absolutely adore called Running in Lavender.
I was looking through some of her past posts and I came across one called “20 Things About Me”. I love these types of posts – they help you get to know the person behind the blog a little bit better. We all love reading blogs that are more personal, that allow us a glimpse into another’s mind and another’s reality. When I read her post, I thought sharing a list of interesting info about your life is a fun thing for a blogger to do so I decided to do the same, here, for you!
So, here we go!
1.I am originally from NYC. I have been living in Paris for 14 years – since I was 18 years old. It was my dream to move to Paris from the time I was 4 years old.
2.I was inspired to start working with children with special needs because my little brother, Nicky, has Prader-Willi Syndrome. We created a “special learning house” environment for him in our home. He has progressed so much thanks to all of my mom’s work with him and I wanted to help make that kind of progress a reality for other special needs families too. I created my center Le Chemin ABA in 2008.
3.I met my husband at a friend’s birthday party. I fell in love with him immediately. He asked my friend about me and she said “she is the nicest girl in the world”. I asked the same friend about him and she said “he is the nicest guy in the world”. The rest is our beautiful, romantic history.
4.My husband and I love to cook and our guilty pleasure is watching cooking shows.
5.I love my job because I get to play all day!
7.My favorite flower is jasmine.
8.My favorite color is pink.
9.I am a romantic – I love a romantic movie, love stories and my idea of a good time is reading marriage advice from elderly couples who have been married forever!
10.My husband and I love our dogs – we take them with us everywhere we go. They have travelled all over France and to other countries! Meet Violette & Chou Chou.
11.My husband and I created our very own signature recipe : duck confit and sweet potato mash. Find more of our signature recipes on our cooking & Parisian lifestyle blog : A Hedghehog in the Kitchen.
12.My favorite wine is Pinot Noir from the Burgundy region of France. I also love white wine from Chablis and Tonnerre.
13.My husband and I collect vintage china – we have vintage teacups, cake stands, pitchers, sugar bowls – you name it, we probably have it! We often feature parts of our collection in our blog photos on A Hedgehog in the Kitchen.
15.I adore writing and have kept a journal ever since I was a little girl. As soon as I learned to write, I began writing in my journal. I think journaling is one of the best ways to relax.
16.My husband and I travelled to Thailand, Cambodia and Myanmar for our honeymoon. It was the most beautiful trip I had ever experienced in my life. It was life changing! I can’t wait to go back to Asia.
17.My favorite children’s cd is The Musical Adventures by Bobs & Lolo .
18.My husband and I speak French with each other at home (my love is French).
19.I studied at the American University of Paris – and absolutely loved it!
20.My mom, sister and brother all live in Italy – in Viareggio- which is a wonderful place to get to visit them!
