Some trends we are really excited to get behind. Recently we’ve been seeing a few bloggers answer questions about themselves and we decided to do the same. Enjoy!
What is your favorite time of day, and why?
B: Morning. I love the quiet, the promise of a new day. Sitting at my desk with a cup of coffee watching the sun rise… my imagination runs free thinking of the endless possibilities that the day can bring.
T: Morning. I am much more alert and clear headed in the morning than any other time. There’s also still the promise of the day to come vs. reacting to what comes at you during the day.
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?
B: Photography. I’ve taken classes over the years but very little about the technique has stayed with me. So I’d love to try again and this time have it stick.
T: Soo hard since I want to learn so many things! I’m going to go with…learn to paint? I have played around, but I have some fabulous artists in my family and I’d love to learn some actual techniques!
What story does your family always tell about you?
B: Usually they revolve around me being type A, such as needing to leave school at 7:08am for high school carpool or making my own lunch starting in the 2nd grade. Typical oldest child behavior.
T: The story of when I stole my sister’s diary when I was in elementary school because I was NOT a rule breaker. My family often says I was born 30 years old so this was completely out of character for me. Lucky for me, my sister could not stay mad at me when I sweetly apologized to my adored big sister!
2 weeks off and plane tickets anywhere… Where to?
B: New Zealand. I spent 5 months there in 2008 and am dying to go back – specifically with my husband who has never been. This time around I would rent a car and drive through the country, stopping to enjoy the nature and the wine and shop.
T: This one is so hard as I love to travel and have so many places on my list. However, if I was forced to choose, I think I might pick South Africa. I could visit the beach, experience the city, taste some wine, and go on a safari.
What book have you read multiple times?
B: The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. It is such an incredible adventure story. Seeing my step-son read it this past summer and enjoy it as much as I did at his age was pure joy.
T: The Time Traveler’s Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. It’s both lovely and heartbreaking. There’s just something about the concept of time travel that I find engrossing.
What was your favorite (or most memorable) meal?
B: NOMA. This summer we went to the world famous NOMA in Copenhagen (named #1 in the World’s Best Restaurants!), and it was by far the most amazing meal I have ever had. It was worth every penny. I have never had a more unique, exotic, and truly luxurious meal. It was also great to go with 7 of my favorite people as the meal lasted almost 6 hours!
T: Dinner on my honeymoon one night in Sydney. We had dinner outside at a spot where we could see both the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge. The setting was picturesque, the food was good, and the company was even better.
What is your real life superpower?
B: I cannot tell a lie. Seriously. I am an awful liar and I am so thankful for that.
T: Listmaking. I have a list for everything. Places I want to go, gift ideas, restaurants in various cities I visit (or want to visit), things I want to do for the holidays next year, etc. in addition to the more mundane to do lists and grocery lists.
