A lot of people ask me to describe myself. I tend to avoid questions like that because, hey, I’m just me. But a fellow writer told me it was time to write a post all about me, to let my followers get to know the real Mrs. N, so here it is. Twenty-six fun facts about me, alphabetical.
A- Art lover and one time, I got lost in the Louvre and had to ask a guard for directions.
B- Buffy the Vampire Slayer is one of my all-time favorite shows and I met Mr. N in a Buffy yahoo group.
C- Chocolate is my favorite food and, in my opinion, it should be a food group.
D- Dreamt of marrying a chef and getting published ever since I was eighteen. 2/2 is pretty good!
E- Exercise saved my life and I walk over 20 miles a week, no matter the weather.
F- Favorite foods include: anything Italian and/or Mexican, pizza, steak, burgers, lobster, etc.
G- Great writers I admire: Ernest Hemingway, Jane Austen, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Harlan Coben, Sophie Kinsella, J. K. Rowling, Stephen King and Agatha Christie.
H- Happiness is curled up reading a book or snuggling with Mr. N.
I- Imaginative baker who loves to try out new recipes including bread, cookies, cakes and pastries.
J- Jacuzzis are my weakness and I swear I will own one someday.
K- Kindness to everyone is one of my mantras for living.
L- Love Actually is my favorite movie and I watch it at least six times a year.
M- MLB is one of my favorite sports to watch and I get serious when it comes to fantasy baseball.
N- Natural beauty is my lifestyle and appearance. I don’t overdo on make-up, perfume or jewelry. Short red hair tousled, light eye shadow complimenting my hazel eyes and a big smile are all the accessories I need to make an outfit complete.
O- Only child growing up left me free to explore my world using my imagination and books.
P- Perseverance throughout life is what has made me into the woman I am today.
Q- Questions tumbled out of my mouth as a child and some of my teachers found it annoying. I was curious about everything and wanted to know how stuff worked.
R- Romance is not something couples do once or twice a year; it’s every day and that’s how my marriage with Mr. N continues to feel like we’re still newlyweds. This summer we’ll be celebrating our fifteenth wedding anniversary.
S- School was troublesome for me due to bullying but I survived and I try to inspire others to stand up to bullies.
T- Twitter is my favorite social media site and you can find me on there for most of the day.
U- Understanding is one my strongest personality attributes. I can empathize with anyone and when needed, I give out hugs.
V- Vino in a glass is one of my favorite ways to unwind after a long day. My tastes vary but my go-to variety is Cabernet Sauvignon.
W- Winnie the Pooh is my favorite cartoon character growing up and I still love it. I relate to all the friends from Hundred Acre Wood: Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eyeore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit, Owl and Christopher Robin.
X- Xtra shy in front of a camera has been something I have had to deal with since I was ten. I would much rather meet in person or talk on the phone. I’m still a work in progress.
Y- Yoda is my favorite Star Wars character and I try to emulate him. Wise, he is.
Z- Zen or prayer is something I incorporate in my everyday life. It’s a constant conversation and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My spiritual life is a living thing and one I cherish.
That’s a little bit about me, Mrs. N. I hope you enjoyed getting to know me better. Got a question for me? I’ll give an honest answer as long as the question isn’t crude or offensive.
