I recently rediscovered this adorable little hair bow from ModCloth. While it’s not really fitting for wear around my office, I think I need to make a mental note to pack it in my purse when I head out for dinner or drinks straight from work. It adds the perfect touch of fun (and I really, really need that after a day at work. Like a lot).
In other news, one of my Connecticut blogger pals recently tagged me in a “Five Things About Me” post…so here’s 5 slightly random things about me:
My favourite place in the world is Scotland, hands down. I dream about being back there at least once a month. And as a historian of England you’d think I’d like spending time in England more but, nope, it’s Scotland all the way for this gal!
I love the fall and winter and absolutely hate summer and warm weather. I know, its super weird. But true.
I can read Spanish, French, Italian, and Latin. My speaking skills in each are much less proficient.
Before deciding to pursue history as a career field and getting my PhD from Yale I thought I would get a degree in education and work as a teacher.
My helpmeet and I recently celebrated our seventh wedding anniversary (and we’ve been together for 12 years). We got married because I got accepted to Yale and it was the only way we could get him a visa to come along. So, instead of a proposal, we sat down together and had a discussion about the benefits of getting hitched versus staying as common law (we’d been living together for three years at that point). Lots of people think that’s a depressing story but I love it – it pretty accurately sums up how we roll as a couple and, hey, it’s workin’ for us.
