I began volunteering at the Lehigh County Humane Society this summer. I wish I could take all the kitties home with me!
I love to read. A few of my favorite books are The Book Thief by Martin Zusak, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens, and The Catcher and the Rye by J.D. Salinger.
Birds are the most fascinating creatures on the planet. If you don't believe me, read about them! I am pretty good at identifying Pennsylvania birds by sight, but I am still learning their songs and calls.
U2 is probably my favorite band. I think I have seen them in concert about 15 times. This past summer Mrs. Boulrice and I saw them at Lincoln Financial for the Joshua Tree 30th anniversary tour.
My dream is to visit Croatia. When I was teaching at Easton High School, one of my students was an exchange student from Crikvenica, Croatia. She told me many stories about the beauty of the Mediterranean. My dream is to visit the city and see my former student, who eventually became a lifelong friend.
I have been to the Metropolitan Opera House in NYC many times. My favorite composers are Verdi, Puccini, and Rossini. My favorite opera is probably Verdi's renowned La Traviata. The clip above, though, is from the Puccini's opera Gianni Schicchi. In it, Anna Netrebko sings the aria, O Mio Babbino Caro. Listen to it! Her voice and the words, even when translated from Italian to English, are delicate and dazzling.
My husband and I were married in Charleston, South Carolina, in 2009 at this very spot. My first choice was the gazebo in White Point Gardens, but it was being repaired that year.
One of my favorite things to do when I visit Charleston is to stroll the battery. It's the most beautiful and sunrise and sunset. At night, there is always a breeze blowing off the water.
Charleston is the oldest and largest city in the U.S. state of South Carolina, the county seat of Charleston County, and the principal city in the Charleston–North Charleston–Summerville Metropolit
This infographic makes me laugh. It's true, right? I hope that when we see each other in the real world that you aren't afraid to say hi.
To me, coffee is no joke. It makes me human. The morning you see me without my coffee is the day that you should probably skip school. LOL
