I’ve been challenged by Jean from Flower Hill Designs to answer a few questions about myself in an online game of tag. Sounds like fun, and I figure it’s a good way for you to get to know me a little better.
Let’s jump right in…
1) What’s your favourite non-blog activity?
Growing up in the country, I spent a lot of time outside and that’s where my original love for nature and the outdoors came from. Now that I’m older, I really don’t like the cold weather so I’ve found myself being cooped up whenever a cold snap hits. I find that it wears on me and I crave spring so I can get back out gardening, going on nature walks, playing tennis and doing all of the other outdoor activities I love so much. However, this past winter I’ve reconnected with skiing and it has grown to become a favourite. I’m still a little rusty, but it’s something I truly enjoy and want to pursue.
2) Where’s your favourite vacation spot?
I don’t have a particular vacation spot that’s a favourite. I’ll take anywhere warm and sunny, with a variety of good food and a nice comfy bed. The beach is always good!

3) Who is your celebrity crush?
I wouldn’t say I have a celebrity crush, but after seeing Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid Love, he’s probably the front runner at the moment!
4) Whose fashion style do you admire most?
I tend to be drawn to the understated style of celebrities like Gwenyth Paltrow and Julia Roberts.
5) What’s your biggest pet peeve?
I live in a community where recycling is highly encouraged and made quite convenient. My total pet peeve is seeing cardboard on people’s curbs on garbage day. I really just don’t understand it!
6) If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you’d do?
I’d buy a new SUV. My Toyota is going on 8 years (still strong), but I’d really like something new and shiny with that fresh car smell!
7) Signature cocktail?
I have a sensitivity to most alcohol, so cocktails are something I usually stay away from. I occasionally have a glass of white wine or the odd vodka martini made with freshly squeezed juice.
8) If I looked in your fridge right now, what would I find?
Greek yogurt, hemp hearts, eggs, variety of nuts, loads of fruit, beer (for my husband), milk, variety of cheese, veggies, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, banana peppers and lots of hot sauce (for my son)!
9) Are you a morning or a night person?
Definitely a morning person. My brain shuts down at 9:00 p.m.!
10) What do you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
Raising my son to be almost 17 without any major bumps along the way.
11) Reveal one thing your readers don’t know about you.
My morning coffee is a must. I like it so hot that I put it in the microwave after it comes out of the coffee maker.
Well, there you have it. Anything you’re surprised to hear about me?
I’d love to learn more about you, so tell me something about yourself in the comments!
Enjoy your day!
