(part 3 of questions for me... from My Life People)
(and actually, the last of the questions, unless more of you join in ;)
1. What song would be your theme song?/What's your favorite song?
Oh. Tough one. I love music. And many songs speak to me in one way or another (or they don’t speak to me, I just like them), but I don’t think I can single out one over any other.

(*eta: as i just heard it on pandora and was reminded!!)
HA! I actually laughed out loud with this mix of music. There is a bit of everything here, but that’s me! and there are plenty more that i love that didn't even make it to this list...
2. What is something you find interesting? Beautiful? Intriguing? Perfect?
Hmmm… the thing that first comes to mind, to each of the 4 adjectives... is the whole process of pregnancy and childbirth… from before conception to after delivery. I have always been overly fascinated with the amazing complexity and pure miracle that it all is. I would call the whole journey interesting, beautiful, intriguing and perfect.
3. How about, what is one life long goal you hope to accomplish?
Yikes. These questions are rough! Wow. Life long goal. I’m just living week to week these days :) I guess life long… my goal is to be truly truly happy. To be proud of what I do. To be proud of what I give. To be self-confident and fearless in whatever life throws my way. To be surrounded by people who love and support me, and to reflect those same things to all who are around me. And most of all, to have raised children that can say the same… that they are happy, self-confident, and proud of themselves.
4. What is the best vacation you have ever been on?
We haven’t been on many diverse vacations, but I can say for sure the best vacation I have been on was this past summer to Atlantic Beach. The sun, the beach, the pools, the napping, the eating… everything was just wonderful! Honestly though, I am not sure that it was as much the location as the fact that it was just us. This was our first vacation as a family, and we really enjoyed having the opportunity to experience that. (Though I am sure being at a beautiful beach has something to do with the overall experience :)
5. Daddy play hockey night?
This is a question I hear daily. Is Daddy playing hockey tonight? Asked in the most sincere and adorable way by the most precious little 2 year old boy that I know. Many times this is the first thing I hear in the morning, and the last thing I hear at night. And to answer the question, for this particular day… No Cohen, Daddy is not playing hockey tonight :)
(if you have more questions for me... you have to play along!)
