V is for…
On our very first date, Keith took me to a Polynesian restaurant and we shared a very potent cocktail called a flaming volcano. It's hard to find restaurants that serve them, we always ask and when we find one we have to have one and reminisce.

I absolutely loved living in Virginia Beach. It was nice to be able to escape to the beach after work or on a weekend. I also loved the lights set up at Christmastime on the boardwalk. What's not to love about the smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves? Nothing that I can think of, that's for sure.

Since losing my job 1 ½ years ago I've actually had time to volunteer at the school. I enjoy going there each week to help out Summer's teacher. Last year I went every week and I've been doing the same this year. I've also had the opportunity to chaperone a few of Bryce's field trips which was a treat. It feels good to give back, I like getting a little of the inside scoop at the school and it makes me smile. Besides, decorating the classroom bulletin board every month is the closest I'll ever get to designing a window at Barney's!

This is one of many installments on the ABCs of Me's. Each week I will feature a different letter of the alphabet and a few corresponding entries on yours truly. This project was inspired by a class I took at Big Picture Classes (Me: The Abridged Version) which was based on a book called Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life.
