1.When you hear the saying "be the change" what comes to your mind first?
My favorite word is genuine, especially when referring to ones personal character. I feel that a genuine person not only has integrity, but is also a person who is sincere and true in their actions. It is something I always strive for in my relationships or interactions.

2.How would you describe your husband?
Best known for its life-affirming lessons and heartwarming adventures, Little House on the Prairie, continues to be one of my all time favorites! All I can say is that whenever I watch it I get that warm and fuzzy feeling inside.

3.If you could revisit one memory as a child in your mind, what would it be and why?
I tend to be a bit more of a planner compared to my family, friends or co-workers. They always laugh at me when I try to finalize plans for a Holiday or special occasion when its more than one or two months away.

4.How would someone describe you when you were in high school?
When life gives you lemons make lemonade. This saying conveys optimism and potential for opportunity in seemingly bad situations. People easily fall victim to circumstance and allow past experiences to ultimately define them. I believe everything happens for a reason and allow past experiences to make me better, not bitter.

5.If money did not matter.. what would you buy for your husband and why?
Funday! Life is short and each day is a gift so I reserve little room for drama. No matter where Im at or who Im with I try to make every day a Funday!
