Here are the questions she asked me, and my answers:

And my questions to you:

1. How do you define pure and absolute joy?

The times that I can specifically remember those feelings are when I walked down the aisle towards my husband on our wedding day, when I first heard my children cry after they were born, and the first time my two babies said “I love you Mommy”. They seem to be family related, fulfilling moments. Times when I’m just overwhelmed and can’t express how I feel other than pure and absolute joy! 🙂

2. What so far has been your most memorable meal?

My most memorable meal was the best food I think I’ve ever had when my then boyfriend (now husband) took me to a Sunday Brunch at a hotel on Palm Beach Island called “The Breakers”. I had never seen such beautiful food in my life. Everything was so elegant! Before I was halfway done with my glass of water, they were filling it back up. There were King Crab legs, and rack of lamb.. and it was all buffet, so I got to try anything and everything! Definitely will always remember that meal!

3.  Your favorite quote and by whom?

“True humility is not thinking less of yourself, it is thinking of yourself less.” C.S. Lewis (I love a LOT of quotes by C.S. Lewis)

4.  Favorite celebratory beverage?

Celebratory would be an Asti Spumante sparkling wine… something light, sweet and fun!

5. Best book you’ve read in the past year?

“Bridge to Haven” by Francine Rivers

6. How many different places have you lived…and…

I have lived in 3 different states, and many places within those states… especially during college!

7. Where was your favorite place you’ve lived?

My current home with my husband and family is my favorite HOME… but there are favorite things about each place I lived!

8. What was your favorite food in second grade?

Man… in 2nd grade?? Probably chips or pasta.

9.  What would you serve for a romantic dinner?

I would serve: A rack of lamb with rosemary and garlic mashed potatoes, balsamic brussel sprouts and for dessert it would be a pint of Ben&Jerry’s Americone Dream! 🙂

10. Champagne, sparkling wine, cava or prosecco?

Most of the time, sparkling wine! 🙂
