Last week, I was tagged by the lovely Jill of jillconyers.com to share seven things you might not know about me to help wrap up the #7daystretch challenge with prAna and Sweat Pink.

Since I’m coming off a busy long weekend and have no idea what to post on the blog so far this week, here are 7 things you might not know about me:

  • I am [wildly/strangely/obviously] obsessed with: dark chocolate and peanut butter. But you already knew that, I’m sure.
  • I have a collection of: Beach pebbles and sea glass. I pick something up every time I’m at the beach, and put it in my jacket pocket. Sometimes I forget they’re there and get confused when I stick my hand in my pocket only to pull out a handful of stones. When I remember to take them out, I put them in a meditation bowl or in the glass vase with my bamboo plant.
  • I secretly (not so secretly): Want to be a minimalist hippy living in a tiny house by the sea growing my own food, writing a novel and taking in rescue animals.
  • When I was 7, I wanted to be: Jane Goodall and a children’s book author.
  • If I could do one thing today, it would be: Get on a plane to an exotic country to explore and relax for a bit.
  • I’ve always dreamt of: Hiking Machu Picchu.
  • My favorite way to travel is: By car or train, even thought it takes longer. I love looking out the window and stopping in small towns you wouldn’t normally get to experience.

Your turn! Answer one or more of the seven things listed above in the comments or on your own blog.
