Sitting in the backyard with my family on a summer evening, tired from a day of physical activities, sipping lemonade, smelling food on the grill and woodsmoke from the fire pit, listening to music. Or just looking at my daughter while she pretends to go on a bigfoot hunt~ that's pretty close to perfect happiness as well.

































Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Woodcarver

Q. With whom in history do you most identify?

A. Julia Child, because she embraced her passion (cooking) and worked extremely hard to make a career out of it, despite lots of rejection along the way :)

Q. What’s your best quality?

A. Maybe being kind to animals? Definitely not being kind my feet. In fact, just thinking about my toes makes any other quality I possess seem pretty darn nice.
