I run for fun. Marathons. I may not be a fast runner, but I’ve completed five full marathons, and more than a dozen half marathons. I’ve run more 5ks than I can even try to recall. I’ve been a runner since middle school and it’s something I just never gave up on.
I can make a perfect grilled cheese sandwich and pancakes. Preferably not together. Just ask my family and select friends. I’m really good with a spatula.
The story behind the name – LoveJaime
Je t’aime – I love you. (also in French)
Years ago, and I mean more than 20 years ago, I was asked by someone how to pronounce my name. I thought this was a little odd, and thought the guy was trying to flirt with me. (And, who knows? Maybe he was.) Little did I realize that j’aime is a French derivative of “love.” And the guy thought my parents spelled my name that way because of the French meaning.
Really, though, my mom worked with a girl who spelled her name that way and she liked it. No fancy meaning.
I had been trying to think of a shorter blog name for my little space, and one morning lovejaime popped into my head. It’s short, it’s sweet and it can mean so many things. This domain opened up for me in 2011 and I jumped at the chance at owning the name that I loved.
Welcome to my corner of the world. Hope you enjoy your stay.
