  1. Oh, fun! I was glad to see a post from you in my inbox (was just wondering about you the other day; I miss your posts) so I clicked right away and had fun reading your responses, then a nice surprise at the end. Thanks for the nomination!


    1. You’re welcome! I’ve been letting life take over all of my me time. Hoping to correct that and keep blogging. Thanks for reading…and still enjoying your posts too!


  2. 1. Congratulating someone on a pregnancy makes me giggle. So yay for a new baby coming. 🙂

    Now, thank you so much for giving me this award. You made my heart grow ten sizes.

    I’m going to answer your questions here:

    1. I’m the only one in my family who hasn’t travelled widely, but the best place I’ve visited so far is Olympia, WA.

    2. My dream job would have something to do with books: owning a book store, working in a library, working in an indie bookstore, etc. Also, reading for a living would be awesome.

    3. My husband and I already have plans to retire to Costa Rica. I can’t wait.

    4. It is impossible to name one favorite book, so ONE of my favorites is Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison.

    5. Same with movies, so I’ll go with the entire Askewniverse series by Kevin Smith (Chasing Amy in particular).

    6. Best memory…hmm…meeting my husband for the first time. Also lots of memories from when I was a dancer.

    7. I hate cooking. Loathe it. But I make a mean lasagna and stuffed shells.

    8. Sunrise.

    9. I don’t really have a bucket list.

    10. My favorite childhood book was Robert the Rose Horse because he had allergies just like me.

    11. I visit SO MANY blogs every day, including this one.


    1. Thanks Heather! You’re awesome. Love the responses…fun way to learn more about the people behind the blogs. And, you’re welcome…I’ve always loved your blog…it seems to me like you already read for a living 🙂
