10 Things About Me and a Linky

Welcome to my weekend blog hop -
Make My Saturday Sweet #219!

10 Things About Me

1. I'm an American expat living with my hubby and 4 kids in South Africa. All 4 kids were born in South Africa.

2. My middle name, Allison, means "truthful warrior maid." That's probably why I like strong female protagonists in fantasy worlds.

3. I grew up in Germany and the States. German is my second language.

4. I left the States when I was 18 and went into missions for 2 years. The year was 1993. I got married and have been living in South Africa since 1995.

5. My eldest child, Jeremiah, turns 21 this year. The rest of my kids are girls. The youngest is Amanda and she's 9.

6. My mom blog is named after her: Amanda's Books and More.

7. I have a travel photography blog: 1camera1mom. This blog helps me to continue appreciating where I live.

8. I'm a volunteer reader at the Blind Institute (now called Kaleidoscope). All the reading I do is recorded in a sound room and is made available for the blind, visually impaired, dyslexic, and bedridden. I read a variety of things like exams, text books, and novels.

9. I have a passion for singing and often lead the singing in the house church that we are a part of on Sunday mornings.

10. I love eating good food like Indian and Asian cuisine. My favorites are curry with naan bread, Asian noodles, and sushi.
