Country! I love the simple and slow life.

Well it just depends. I am a Texas girl so I love a good glass of sweet tea, and until I can get use to black coffee I will put a spoon or two of sugar (my husband does not approve of this).

4. If you could learn a new skill, what would it be?

Hmm this is a tough one because I always willing to learn. But there are two things that come to mind. Since I will be living the farm life I would love to learn how to drive the tractor.

The Giving Tree. The Little Engine that Could. Rainbow Fish. Frog and Toad. I read so many books as a child so this was a hard one to narrow down.

29. Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?

I do like to read. I have been in a bad habit of not reading lately but I hope to read a new book ever month or two. The last book I read was the butterfly effect by Andy Andrews.

30. How do you show someone you love them?

It depends on what they need or how they want to be loved. For example my husband loves acts of service. So keeping a clean home is a way for me to show him I love him. If it’s a friend who needs nothing more than someone to talk too, even if that means saying nothing in return. Lending a listening ear is a way to show love.

So so. I am a slow drinker so if there is too much ice, my drink will be watered down and that is always a bummer for me.

Whatever cologne my husband wears! It’s delicious!

Last name. It’s respectful unless they say different.

Traveling around the globe, giving back to charities, start my own nonprofit and maybe open up a panini, coffee and soup shop!

36. Do you prefer swimming in pools or ocean?

Swimming pools. I have a fear of not knowing what’s beneath me in the ocean!

37. What would you do if you found $50 on the ground?

Hoestly? I’d pick it up and keep it. Safe money!!

38. Have you seen a shooting star? Did you make a wish?

Yes and yes!

It is ok to be your weird self, to cry, to love fiercely, dance, have strong self confidence, stand up for themselves and what is right, and that failing is OK!
