Did you know?

My darling friend Chelle has tagged me to share 7 random
not-so-common-knowledge fascinating tidbits about myself.
After much thinking, I've had a hard time coming up with
anything interesting, but I'll try.

One - I've had the same e-mail address since I was 15 years old.
I still can't come up with anything better.

Two - I was sewing quite well by the time I was 12 so for Christmas I made my two best friends skirts for their Christmas gifts. It only took me a day to get both done.

Three - Mike, Olivia, and I all have the same last two initials and Olivia and I have the same middle name, Day.

Four - My name, Fairlight, comes from the book Christy by Catherine Marshall.
Christy is a young school teacher in the Appalachian mountains of TN. She meets and befriends a mountain woman named Fairlight. As the story develops they become close friends. My mom was intrigued by the character and the name and decided to name her first daughter, Fairlight. Funny thing is, my mom's name is Kristi.

Five - I've lived in 4 states (Kansas, West Texas, North Carolina, East Texas, and South Carolina) and 10 houses in my far.

Six - Between the ages of 8 and 14 I raised my own chickens and sold the eggs to family, friends, music teachers, a dairy farmer, and an organic co-op.

Seven - I only have two pictures of myself without either of my kids in them and they are both on CD and I don't have time to look for them.
<-- This one is from last January, downtown Charleston.

Shesh, that was hard. Took me two hours!
Ok, Shanna and Sarah, consider yourselves tagged!

I was wondering were your name came from - what a great story!!!
And I loved learning all of these "tidbits" about you, even if it was hard coming up with them!

What an interesting person you are! Sewing skirts by age 12, raising chickens, mom named you Fairlight? How intriguing. My life is so boring in comparison!
