Hi! My name is Megan Anne Klein, and I manage the blog here at Caravan. I love to be creative, plan parties, bake desserts, and be outdoors skiing or hiking.
Q: What is your favorite outdoor activity?
I recently switched from snowboarding to skiing, and am absolutely loving it, so I’d have to say that’s my crush right now.
Q: What sound do you love?
The cracking and popping of fire. The sound reminds me of long summer nights, accompanied by yummy smores. We recently had our first fire in our fireplace on Christmas morning, even Martha Stewart would have been proud of the scene.
Q: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
I know it’s a little late, but I would love to be a ballerina on pointe. I grew up dancing, and missed my chance with ballet, but now I can’t get enough of the beautiful, poised and determined ballerinas.
Q: What CD is in your car right now?
Celine Dion. I am completely tone deaf, and she’s still my idol.
Q: What is one resolution of yours?
Recently I have come to love hand lettering, so I’ve decided to write a word a day. I’ve been testing out different styles, and learning new words, trying to make the word fit the style.
Q: Where is the coolest place you’ve ever been?
I lived in China for six months, and visited Yangshuo/Guilin. Google it, you’ll want to go as well, and invite me when you do!
Q: What did you do growing up that got you into trouble?
I had bright red hair growing up, and people always use to tell me how beautiful it was, but I hated my hair so I would glare at them, instead of being polite and saying thank you.
Q: What is something most people don’t know about you?
I eat at Slab Pizza every Friday, and have come pretty close to trying all of their pizzas. I probably should have made a resolution to eat better, but who wants to make resolutions they know won’t happen. Call me if you need a recommendation!
Q: What is your favorite holiday?
Easy, the fourth of July. I grew up in a small town, and loved sleeping on the street for the parade, and then eating the pancake breakfast in the morning. Also I may be biased, but our water parade was pretty great (just don’t make the mistake of wearing white like I did a few times!) That day gathers the essence of summer, barbecues, swimming and fireworks, with the warm summer air.
Q: What is your most embarrassing moment?
For my first date, we doubled with another couple and went to my date’s cabin. We did all the usual cabin activities like four wheeling and roasting marshmallows, and then his family came up to stay the night. We were planning on leaving, when a big storm came and prevented us from driving on the roads. Just imagine the phone call I had to make to my mom “Hi mom, I’m 16 and on my first date, can I sleep over at my date’s cabin, because well…we don’t really have another option.” Luckily my mom trusted me and the fact that his whole family was there. This isn’t even the embarrassing part yet. While four wheeling at sunrise the next morning, a piece of a plant flew into my eye, and I had an allergic reaction to it. By the time he dropped me off at my doorstep, my eye was swollen shut! Quickest doorstep scene in history.
Q: What chore do you absolutely hate doing?
Dishes! There is just something about the soggy food and pruney hands that doesn’t sit well with me.
