WHAT IS YOUR IDEA OF A PERFECT DAY OFF?

Waking up without an alarm (which is still pretty early) and choosing what I want to do (reading, working outside in the yard or in the woods, lunch with friends). No laundry!

MOST USED EMOJI ON YOUR PHONE? 🙃

YOU HAVE YOUR OWN LATE NIGHT TALK SHOW. WHO DO YOU INVITE AS YOUR FIRST GUEST?

My parents – my mom grew up in depression era US (adopted by older relatives) and my dad grew up in Germany during WWII. They had fascinating stories that I wish I had listened to more.

WHAT WAS YOUR LEAST FAVORITE FOOD AS A CHILD? DO YOU EAT IT AS AN ADULT?

Spinach – my mom always made the kind that was in a box from the freezer. Blech!! I love fresh, baby spinach now.

WHAT IS A BOOK THAT YOU’VE READ LATELY THAT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE?

Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover and Complete Guide To Money along with taking Financial Peace University. This wasn’t just about learning good practices with dealing with money – it also improved communication skills between my husband and myself.

IF YOU COULD ELIMINATE ONE THING FROM YOUR DAILY ROUTINE, WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?

Having to read through emails to figure out if they are junk – waste of time!
