A.Co Fun Facts

Amy over at Junghwa by Amy Stewart does these awesome posts on Friday, fun facts actually, where she divulges various things about herself. I love reading it and look forward to it each week. I thought it would be fun to steal this idea, so let's go:

Fact #1:
I know how ride a motorcycle. I took a course five years ago and finally understood why my dad was so obsessed. Since then, a good friend re-taught me last summer on his bike (a Yamaha R1), which was amazing. We went out several times throughout the summer and I even took it on (deserted & quiet) roads. I have a (huge) itch to buy a bike and hope to do so in the somewhat near future.

(Side note: Both my parents are bikers so I say it's in my genes ;)

Fact #2:
I have a dog named Peanut and she is 10 years old.  She lives with my parents but is our family dog.  She's part shih tzu, part bichon frisé and is so soft and cuddly (and stubborn).  We got Peanut when she was only a mere two months old and could fit in the palm of our hand.  Now, she is about 15 pounds but still enjoys being picked up and carried around.  Can't imagine my life without her.

Fact #3:
My fiancé and I have been together for six years and engaged for almost two years.  This photo was taken at our one year anniversary.

Fact #4:
I only have one friend (PK) that is taller than me, or... we might be the exact same height (5'11).  I tower over everyone else ... and it doesn't help that I always wear heels.

Fact #5:
My bff (SL) and I have been friends since we met in grade 4.  Through good times and bad, we have never been closer than we are now and I couldn't ask for a better friend.  At the end of the summer, she is moving away to another city (4 hours away) to go school.  While I'm so proud of her and happy for her to begin a new journey, I cannot stop getting emotional when I think about her moving away.  I know this is a great and fantastic thing for her, but I really don't know how I'm going to 'survive' without having her in this city.

I know what you mean about your friend moving away. My best friend moved to Cornwall which is about a 6-7hour drive away. I only get to see her on School holidays, though we write, phone and email all the time it's not the same. I do enjoy our time together and we have so much fun.

Love the post... thanks for sharing!! :) I also have a BFF, but we've known eachother since we were 6... that's two decades of friendship! We've definitely been through up highs and lows... but our friendship definitely is the strongest it's been. :)... and we live 2000++ miles aways from eachother, but talk at least once to eachother everyday day. She's my soulmate#2!!

Hope you're having a lovely weekend.

xx Love & Aloha,
