7 things....

The lovely Marie from Les 3 Castafiores was kind enough to award me with the Versatile Blogger Award and I must admit that I am beyond thrilled and very honored by this kind gesture! Thanks so much Marie!!!
This award entails that I reveal seven truths about myself and then pass this award on to seven blogs I love (who must then also reveal 7 truths)

Well, here goes:

If I could have one wish, it would be to have "green fingers". I love gardening, plants and flowers but for some reason gardening, plants and flowers does'nt love me. I am very ashamed to admit that I am responsible for the death of 10 (yes 10!!!!!!) orchids!

I am a complete neurotic and one of the scariest things for me is falling in love.

After majoring in Art History, I studied and worked for an Interior Decorator before I decided to become a teacher. (Want to know the story, go read it here). I will always have a soft spot for decorating though and although I love teaching,  I dream about owning a cute little decor shop... flower shop...and  coffee shop which serves it's beverages in vintage porcelain!

Chris and I have been dating for a year and a half.... of which we spend a year apart - him being an engineer in South Africa and me teaching little Korean kiddos some English! Its hard, I wont lie but back then it seemed like the only way for us both to "have our cake and eat it"! With only two months left of being apart, I am really happy that this long distance learning curve is coming to an end!!

I am a big Francofile and love everything French - macaroons, monogrammed linens, red wine-cheese- baguette lunches, the Eiffel tower.....the list goes on and on!!! Oh, how I dream about living in beautiful Paree for (at least) a year or two!

I dont like killing bugs (or anything for that matter) and it breaks my heart if anybody in my company do so! I even have a hard time killing mosquito's! Therefore I am extremely thankful to have a boyfriend who also prefer to catch bugs and set them free, rather than killing them! Well, most bugs anyway......he isn't as lenient as I am on mosquitoes!

Chocolate is'nt on my top 10 list of "favorite things"- I much prefer gummies and I LOVE yogurt!!!

Love and Stuff
