1) What everyday rituals start your morning?
As a pet mommy, a lot of my “rituals” are more like duties. =) But my husband and I managed to make the mundane more enjoyable. I used to hate the first morning dog walks–I was always half asleep and cranky and especially in the winters, I was just miserable to be outside! But after our dog Red was diagnosed with cancer, it really made both Sean and I stop taking all those little moments for granted. Suddenly, those annoying morning walks were little gifts of time that we treasured. And so Sean and I instated what we call the “coffee walks” in which we make coffee, feed the animals, put the coffee in a to go cup and take the dogs for a 30 minute walk. It’s an amazing start to our day and a great way for us to connect without any electronic distractions. We lost Red to cancer back in June and have since adopted a new puppy (who requires a LOT more walks, haha). But even though Red has passed, the coffee walks are here to stay.
2) Tom Waits or Tom Jones?
I feel like Tom Waits would be the “cooler” answer, but I really love me some Tom Jones!
3) Woodsy cabin or five-star hotel?
Hotel. Now, if you had said a cozy cottage or five-star hotel, I would have had a bigger debate in my head… but I’ve only ever been camping once as a kid and I was sent home early because I spent the whole weekend crying because I saw a spider! Lol, yeah, I hate admitting that story, but it’s true.
4) What is your favorite word?
Ahhh! There’s so many. And it changes constantly. Pontificate is a fun one. Reticent, clandestine. But if you asked my husband, he would say that the F-bomb is my favorite based on how much I use it!
5) Say personal safety is not an issue. What natural phenomena would you like to experience up close?
If I was guaranteed no harm… I would love to be in a tornado. I’d finally know what it felt like to fly and it would probably feel a bit like a roller coaster if you took the fear out it.
