As a courtesy to the many wonderful people in my life, who inevitably make appearances on my very public blog, I have changed their names. Here is an (ever growing) list of main characters, as a reference.
Carmen SanDiego….This is my alter ego and childhood hero, who I hope to emulate in my many travels and adventures (minus purloining major historical artifacts). It is my great pleasure to borrow her name!
The roommates , one of which is a fellow flight attendant (named after the Disney princesses they are most like)
Belle—diligent, smart, kind, funny and on top of everything. She is one of the most got-it-together girls I know, and she keeps the rest of us in line.
Ursula—outgoing, spunky, wine loving, middle school teaching, guacamole making, trivia boss. (And yes, the ursula is a Disney princess. Watch Little Mermaid. Who cares if she’s the villain!)
The man in my life
Mr. Darcy—the patient, clever, handsome and kind guy who I am lucky to call my own. I nicknamed him Darcy after the Jane Austen character from Pride and Prejudice, who his personality mirrors almost exactly. Our first meeting was surprisingly similar to that of Lizzie and Darcy from the story as well.
My awesome friends inside and out of the aviation industry:
Downwind—charter pilot, father figure, dear friend and clown.
Miss Pitt—fellow graduate from Flight Academy, fast friend, my sister of color, lady pimp and fitness guru.
