About Traveling With T
Traveling With T is my blog. A blog that I started, in part, because I wanted something to occupy my free time, to save me from internet shopping (Sephora, I’m looking at you!) When I started Traveling With T, I wanted a space on the internet- a place that was for me. To write and talk about places I was going (traveling, restaurants, road-trips, fun events and book signings). When I started this blog, I did not have the intention of it becoming a book blog- I wanted to run 2 blogs- 1 about books and 1 for other things- a variety of topics. Slowly, though, I began talking about books here- and then Traveling With T just kind of morphed into the wonderful thing it is (at least in my opinion). Sometimes it’s funny, sometimes brutally honest- majority of it is books. It’s been a long and strange ride to get where it is and for me to feel 100% happy with TWT- but I wouldn’t trade the lessons I’ve learned for anything.

T. The Girl Behind The Blog.
T is the first initial of my name- and when I started this blog, I wanted a name that had some anonymity- but that could be linked to me, as well. T worked. T works.
But you want to know about me- well, here goes:
I love to read. I have loved to read since I got my first BSC book. I remember being called a book-worm when I was a kid.
The beach is the best place. EVER.
I’ve never been to England. Or France. Or Italy. But, I hope one day to say I have.
I saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love. I did not like- and I truly do not think the book would be any better.
I suffered through around 800 pages of 11/22/63 by Stephen King. For our book club. That only 1 other person read the book- and no wanted to discuss for “fear of ruining the ending”.
My accent is VERY Southern (at least that’s what people from other places tell me.
I watch Days of Our Lives. I make no apologies for my daily dose of entertainment.
British accents make me weak in the knees.
Uniformed men also make me weak in the knees- preferably a man in a military uniform- but sometimes those UPS uniforms do the trick.
My Goodreads shelf is a mess. I actually kind of slightly despise my Goodreads page.
I love music. Can’t sing a note in tune. But good golly, I LOVE dancing around the house, singing into my hairbrush.
I have a major thing for oldies music.
Roller skating is my thing. I love to roller skate. Bowling is a close second- I’m not that great at it- but I still love it.
Photography is my hobby.
I like my books in order. Hardcovers together and paperbacks together.
I met Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady from Days of Our Lives). Pretty awesome day.
Authors are my rock stars.
I love going to concerts and events.
I don’t hate Taylor Swift. In fact, I enjoy most of her music.
Law and Order- especially the ones with Lenny (Jerry Orbach) are some of my favorite shows to watch. And watch again.
I still have an original NES. And can be found playing old-school games (Super Mario, Friday The 13th and Mega Man) when I’m feeling nostalgic.
My favorite alcoholic drink: Midori Sour. Next fav: Amaretto Sour. Unless, someone can make THE HUNK (pineapple juice and vanilla vodka)- then THAT is it.
I laugh. A lot.
I tend to pick pinks for my polish. And I like nail art.
I wish there was a blow dry bar near me. I would go and have a blow out weekly. I LOVE luxurious treatments.
Sometimes I dress up in sparkly costumes- to help raise money for a children’s hospital.
I even walked in my first Color Me Rad run/walk in 2013 to help raise additional money for the hospital.(I’m the 2nd from left on back row)
I adore scrapbooking. And really want to start getting back into crafty projects.
I want to spend a week in NYC- hitting up Broadway shows and doing touristy things during the day. I want to visit California one day- take my pic with The Hollywood sign, dip my toes in the Pacific Ocean and look for star’s homes. Hawaii is one of my dream places- I want to visit, go snorkeling, rent a convertible and learn to hula dance.
