Embracing the Whole Blog-Culture

Since I started lurking around on other people's blogs earlier this year, I've been fasinated by this whole blog culture and how it seems that so many blogs and writers seem to be connected to each other. Obviously, I'm totally jealous. So I'm participating today in what seems to be a blogging classic: Blog Hop through MckLinky. The theme for this week is "3 Things You Didn't Know About Me."

I once swam across a lake. A 4 mile lake. It actually took me 5 miles to swim it. (The boat accompanying me, as well as all the boats that were part of this experience, got lost in the fog, so we ended up swimming an extra mile or so.)

There I am at the bottom of the steps at the end of the swim. I was dragging through the water at the end. That was the hardest athletic feat of my life.

I've been a bridesmaid four times and played the piano at three weddings. (I've never done both at the same time, thankfully.) I LOVE weddings and helping with them.

I grew up a dairy farm, drinking raw milk and playing around the barn. I have just now got to the point where I can stand pasteurized milk on my cereal, but I still can't drink a glass of it.
