1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
My favorite word is “sparkling”. When people ask me what type of day I’m having I usually respond with “”Sparkling!” Using onomatopoeia evokes a response from people that reflects the word’s connotation. It surprises them and brightens their day.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
“Dancing with the Stars” has become my favorite program. I love that the stars are out of their element and in that way they are not “stars”, but just like you and me. The show makes me want to get up and dance!
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
Over-extending myself is my worst habit. I want to be involved in so many things that at times it’s impossible to juggle everything. Unfortunately when that happens I have to make hard choices about what to give up, and then I feel as though I’ve failed somewhere.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
“It could always be worse!” is my favorite saying. For most of us the things that seem so terrible shrink in comparison to the troubles of others. When my son was diagnosed with a nasopharyngeal angiofibroma the size of a softball, I knew even that could have been worse.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
Every day is my favorite day of the week because every day is a new chance to learn something new, fix the problems left from yesterday, meet someone new, and make a difference. Giving up is easy, moving on is the sweetest challenge.
