My Life in 8 Words

Author Revealed

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. Be kind to yourself. (My mom says it to me all the time, possibly because she knows I need permission.)

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. I'm sitting on the couch with my laptop, my husband is beside me watching hockey, and my kids are sleeping peacefully in their beds.  Add a pound of dark chocolate and that's heaven.

Q. What 3 personal qualities are most important to you?

A. Humility. Kindness. Intelligence.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. I'm considering undergoing hypnosis to eradicate all the unnecessary "likes" and "you knows" from my speech. If anyone knows of a less bizarro method of doing this, please let me know.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd be my husband, because then I'd still be us, but I wouldn't have to be me. It's complicated.
