1.  I just opened my own Etsy shop!  KnitPurlStitch!
2.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE CrossFit.
3.  I still have a quilt my mom made me when I was 2.  I've had to stitch it up a few times and so its name is now 'Frankie Blankie'.  Its weird. I know.

Greece!  I can't wait to get there someday.

10) What is your favorite flower?  I love dahlias and any bright bold big flowers.
