Ever since I was a little kid, I have been terrified of sharks. I have always feared the ocean and the unknown swimming in it. My friends and family tease me about my fear, but I just can't seem to overcome it.
Ironically, three years ago I got married and my last name became Sharkey. Despite all those scary real sharks, I can't help but love shark apparel, costumes, drawings and stuffed animals. There is something really fun about my new last name; a proud feeling I have. While I am afraid of sharks, I am happy to be Mrs. Sharkey!
I never would have thought my last name would be the same as my biggest fear :)
Below are a few of my pins from my Sharkey board:
*side note* - When we were in North Carolina last month, we found a washed up dead shark on the shore at the end of the island. It was a smaller shark, but still confirmed my fear and the fact that they do live in shallow water!!! no. thank. you. sharks.
