enchanted home interviewFebruary 24, 2012
How not to be enchanted by my friend Tina,
the dream home, and her fabulous kitchen?
Do you know her blog?
She has a keen eye, a killer sense of humor,
and a crazy streak that caused her
to tag me in a blogland game.
Honestly, you probably want to hop right over
to the lovely Enchanted Home, but if you're
feelin saucy, here are my responses:
Have a hobby?
Yes, yes, so many!
Photography, baking, writing songs,
and blogging my little heart out.
I blog to entertain myself and connect with cool people.
I could say it's all about you, but I'd be lying.
Failing at something or never trying to begin with?
The first thing that comes to mind
are the risks we take when we commit to love.
But it is hard to put into practice because
no one wants to get hurt
or willingly look like a dingus.
Rather be a great cook or great designer?
I can hold my own and am very much
at home in the kitchen.
I love feeding people and actually like my food.
Two favorite rooms in the house?
The kitchen and our bedroom.
The kitchen because it has incredible light
and there is often lively conversation.
The bedroom because it is tranquil, and I have
an amazing view of the forest (enchanting!)
Famous people you'd like to dine with?
By now, my readers know I have a crush on
Edward Cullen, so even though he's a
fictional vampire who technically doesn't eat,
we will forgive him since he is played by a delicious actor.
Also, Anne Lamott, a writer I so admire.
She is one of those Jesus loving liberals
who drops the f-bomb often and just breaks your heart.
Four words to describe you?
This is all sorts of embarrassing, Tina.
Best book or two you've read this year?
I loved (like constant laughing out loud)
David Sedaris' Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk,
and Patina Style by the Giannettis
knocked my socks off.
What do you miss most about childhood?
I led an incredibly full life as a kid.
I was always barefoot and an exhibitionist.
I grew up in the church, raised by very
progressive free-spirited parents who never
feared for our safety.
We moved around a lot which meant
I had lots of diverse experiences with
interesting people and places.
If you had a freaky Friday experience
and had to trade places with one person
for one day, who would it be?
Definitely a surfer on the North Shore of Oahu
I love the ocean and its boundlessness but am
not a strong swimmer...I would love to experience it.
A perfect day for you?
Honestly, I am at my best when I am
focused on other people like my three men
above so a perfect day is one where I am
treated to their laughter and love, preferably outdoors.
Place in the world you'd like to visit?
My turn to tag, and I am tagging...
