Get to know Charlotte!
TCTP: What’s a guilty pleasure that you wish wasn’t considered one?
CL: Afternoon naps and eating chocolate chips directly from the bag.
TCTP: Have you already planned your dream wedding?
CL: No! I have a very small family and none of my friends are getting married anytime soon so weddings of any scale or style are a pretty alien idea to me. The idea of planning out “the big day” has never really been a concern for me.
TCTP: When’s the last time you compromised on something?
CL: I frequently agree to take the dog out on her evening walk in exchange for not having to do the dishes.
TCTP: What’s something you’ve done for your health that you hate?
CL: There was a period in college where I thought I’d “get into running” that lasted about two weeks.
TCTP: Chocolate Martini or Vodka Tonic?
CL: Exactly one (1) hard cider and I’ll be ready for bed in an hour or so.
