A. Costa Rica, zip-lining

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. A chai latte, laughing so hard it hurts with my best friends, a vanilla candle, that feeling that happens at midnight at New Year's Eve, The Beach Boys on a record player. And of course when the writing is going so well I forget to look at the word count or the clock.
