20 Facts about Me

Chocolate Reading Summer Sweden

One of the things I love about local businesses, is that they have a personality that matches that of the owner. There is a closer, more personal connection between the owner and customers of a local store, than there is in a big box store. So I thought I should share some fun facts you may, or may not know about me, as I love getting to know all of you as you join our Kids Trading Company tribe!

  1. This fact is probably hard to miss, but I was born and raised in Sweden! I'm from a small town called Söderhamn on the East coast and I'm pretty proud of my Viking heritage! :)
  2. I have a deep, deep love of chocolate.
  3. In school, my worst subject was phys ed. Me and team sports never did click.
  4. Embarrassing fact: I have been watching the Bold & the Beautiful since 1992.
  5. I am the second of four children - I'm a total middle child!
  6. Favourite activity that I don't do enough: Reading! I read Gone with the Wind in about three days as a 13 year old.
  7. Favourite season: Summer for sure!
  8. I don't like coffee (I know, I'm a Swedish anomaly).
  9. I am mom to Ashton, and stepmom to Kane. <3
  10. I am a terrible liar. So I just don't do it.
  11. I have a thing for 80's music. But I don't think we need to bring back 80's fashion.
  12. I don't like scary movies.
  13. Childhood crush: Oh, there were quite a few. But Patrick Swayze was up there.
  14. I love looking at houses. Whether it's driving through a neighbourhood, checking realtor sites or watching House Hunters.
  15. I really don't like clutter (funny as my son has hoarding tendencies).
  16. I could have been named Gisela, but my dad won.
  17. I love ice cream but not if it's plain. It needs chocolate chunks, peanuts and/or peanut butter, caramel and all that good stuff.
  18. I cry really easily in sad TV-shows or movies. Or commercials.
  19. My glass is half full.
  20. I really, really enjoy my job. I love being a store owner, and I love the relationship I get to have you!
