My friend Robyn gave me some questions to answer for a blog interview. I'm very grateful, because I'm still in hibernation and I really needed something to inspire me blog-wise.
1. Which is your favorite season, and why?
Fall. I just love everything about it, and I'm pretty sure I've gone on and on about it here before. I love spicy smells, I love changing leaves, I love the blue, blue sky, I love the perfect weather, I love college football, I love pumpkins, I love Halloween, I love apples.
2. Where did you go on your Honeymoon?
We went to Lake Tahoe for 4 or 5 days and then we went to San Francisco for a few more.
3. Which is your favorite book, and why?
This is a toughie for me to answer. I don't really think I have any one favorite book. I tend to change my "favorite" daily, and usually the most recent great book I read is my favorite.
So, with that in mind, I will say that my current fave is "Bel Canto" by Ann Patchett. I absolutely adored this book (as I know many of you did). I thought the writing was beautiful, and of course, I loved the themes of opera and linguistics. Wonderful story. Go read it if you haven't yet.
4. Describe your favorite outfit.
Well, if I were to describe what I wear most days, it's blue jeans and a casual shirt of some sort. Today it's a red knit shirt with a hood.
But my favorite is to dress up. I'm really not a jeans and t-shirt kind of girl, but being a mom sort of necessitates that most days. I would totally wear a dress and heels every day if it were practical.
5. What is your best childhood memory?
I think I really have a hard time with superlatives. Whether or not it's the "best" one, one of the ones I really love thinking about is the time when my grandparents came to visit us. I was 3 or 4 years old and I rode up the canyon with them in the back of their jeep. Just me, no parents came with us. I remember we went to the Provo river somewhere and gathered lots of pretty rocks. I brought them home for my mom and she put them around the trees in our yard. I really treasure that memory, especially since both of those grandparents (and in fact all of my grandparents) are now passed on and I never had a chance to see them very much since they lived far away. I think it was one of the only times I did something with just me and them.
Now, the other part of this meme, is that I can interview you, should you choose to participate. If you want me to, just say "Interview me" in the comments and I will send you some questions.
