Thanks to my mom and her friends, I've inherited the wonderful hobby of quilting. I am twenty five and the only person I know who owns a sewing machine. I am so grateful to have been taught how to sew and quilt, and I love that when friends get married or have children I can give them a gift that they will love and cherish.
Inheriting Hobbies, or How I Got My Green Thumb

I was an Air Force brat too! And I also spent time in England! My dad was an exchange officer with the RAF though, so we ended up living in a small English village for three and a half years instead of on an actual base (although technically we were stationed out of RAF Fairford). To be honest, the move to England was much easier than the move back. I was nine when we moved from Ogden, UT (where I was a minority of the non-Mormon variety) to Thornbury, a small village near Bristol. The move back to the US (to Tucson, AZ to be specific), when I was thirteen and in between 7th and 8th grade was much worse. I missed my friends, I stood out like a sore thumb at my new school, and was way behind in the one subject I had always excelled in (math). However, I eventually found an amazing group of friends who I remain in touch with to this day.
