Anwen? Wait, isn’t my name actually Wendy?
Well…here’s the deal. My dad wanted to name me Arwen (yes, like the elf in Lord of the Rings), but my mom wasn’t down with that (thanks, Mom!), so they compromised and named me Anwen (which is Welsh). But my dad also wanted a little girl named Wendy, so they made the obvious decision to name me Anwen and nickname me Wendy. Not confusing in the slightest! 😉 But I’m not complaining…I love the name Anwen, and I’ve always gone by Wendy.
But you clicked on the “About Me” section, so you probably want to know a little more about me then just where my name came from, right?
I have a Cocker Spaniel named Lexie, who may or may not be the love of my life (at least until I find the real love of my life).
My favorite place in the world is Cinque Terre, Italy. When I’m having a bad day, I daydream about leaving everything behind and just taking the first flight to Italy.
I was an English major at the University of Florida, and I’ll be a bookworm and a Gator fan for life.
I always chew two pieces of gum at a time. Yep, two–none of that halvsies nonsense.
I am a dreamer.
I am a full-time Marketing Communications Coordinator for a biotech company (ooh, sounds fancy, eh?), and a part-time wedding and lifestyle photographer, thrifter, crafter, blogstalker, wannabe fashionista, and blogger.
And I love making new friends…so don’t hesitate to say hello!
