I’ve been tagged by Hannah for this Name Meme.
Here are the “official” rules:
*Players must list one fact, word, or tidbit that is somehow relevant to their life for each letter of their first or middle name.

T- Travel: My family has always gone camping & taken summer vacations. We’ve traveled in (or at least through) most of the states, taken a cruise in Hawaii, gone to Canada a couple times, gone to Mexico and visited an exchange student in Venezuela (for 4 weeks!!). In college, I spent a semester in Spain and then traveled in Europe, visiting another exchange student in Switzerland.
E- Edgerton, WI: I grew up here and lived in the same house (with the exception of dorm living in college) until 1999. Then, after living in Milwaukee for 1 year after college, I decided to move to Colorado with my best friend Brian!
R- Rabbit: I used to have a pet rabbit named Cottontail (very original, I know). I won him at the local carnival when I was in grade school or middle school! I really love all animals and currently have 2 cats, Charlie & Kennedy. (OK, so this was just a lame way to put my babies in here)
R- Reading: I love to read! Do you remember Book It? It was so fun in grade school when we got to order books towards the end of the year. This really helped with the long hours in the car on summer vacation! Now that I’ve started knitting, I don’t have as much time to actually pick up a book and read it. I’m so glad there are audio books!! I can listen to them on my way to & from work, and even while I’m knitting :) (But of course, I don’t knit while driving!)
I- Imagination: I always wanted to become a writer. I have such a vivid imagination, but whenever I tried writing a story, I never felt like I was able to put onto paper what was swirling around in my brain. I have a lot of unfinished stories I started when I was younger; they sound awfully silly when I read them now. Maybe I should have become an editor instead?
E-Environment: Although I need to do better, I try to recycle what I can and conserve energy. I wish I could afford a hybrid vehicle. Actually, I wish I didn’t have to drive at all. I’d love it if I could walk or ride my bike to work! I love being able to go outside and enjoy nature.
This was a lot harder than I thought it would be! Instead of tagging anyone, I’ll let you decide if you’d like to do this! If you do, please leave me a comment so I can read it on your blog :)
