Here are a few quirky things about me, just in case you’re curious:

  • I love animals (especially cats) and went vegetarian after reading Charlotte’s Web as a kid.
  • I try to do a digital detox once a week, but it’s hard. Ridiculously hard.
  • I like to read multiple books at a time, mostly memoirs and nonfiction.
  • I take a yoga class almost every day and I’m still not that flexible.
  • I am a huge fan of British TV shows, particularly like Outlander, Downton Abbey and The Great British Bake Off.
  • I read the Saturday Daily Telegraph from cover to cover, back to front.
  • I believe that magic and miracles are all around us, but we’re usually not paying attention.
  • I once taught English to children in Kyoto, Japan.
  • I love the sound of Scottish bagpipes. Yes, really.
  • My best birthday ever was spent on the Isle of Skye, in the Scottish Highlands.
  • When Harry Met Sally… is my idea of a perfectly written screenplay.
  • Chicago deep dish is the world’s best pizza, I don’t care what New Yorkers say.
  • My favorite charity in the UK is Cats Protection.
  • I used to live in Los Angeles. Now I’m a hippie chick in Scotland.
  • My New Year’s resolution is always to live more in the present moment
