kids: One son who is 11. I didn’t have him until I was 37, so having a second one was a long shot.  We love being parents to an only.

One Word that Describes You: encouraging

What makes you smile?

Drama free, authentic, warm and true people and events.
My son’s voice.
A warm still summer morning with a cup of joe

What is one of your dreams you hope to accomplish soon? I’d be so happy to be done with this Word Press move with no glitches.

One of Your favorite motherhood moments? When someone asked me how to work a stroller.  My son was about 12mo and I had really struggled with feeling like I knew what I was doing as a new mother.  When another new mom asked me for help, I was thrilled. I was thrilled and shocked to look like I knew what I was doing!  What a gift she gave me that day.

What is your guilty pleasure? Eating lots of snacks on road trips. Red vines, peanut butter M&Ms, Cookies.

What do you love most about you? I am respectful and tolerant of  people different than myself.

Favorite Food? Favorite food is Mexican!

Who is your hero? Oprah – I love her.

Your tips to women who love to be creative but sometimes get caught in a “funk” what helps you bring back your creativeness when you feel stuck? I cruise creative blogs or my archives for an idea………or I start organizing my stash. Or I start to redecorate a room.  It’s dangerous.

I met Kim a few weeks ago just for a bit but she immediately makes you feel wonderful by being authentic and warm. Just like she said she appreciates in people as well. So glad I got to meet you through “blog land” and I agree on the drama free people and events! Don’t you love her favorite motherhood moment? I remember that as well.
