In case you missed it, I had the privilege of guest blogging over at The Grateful Life yesterday. You can check out my post about embracing (big) life changes here!
Yesterday at work a few of us interviewed each other in order to create short profiles. We have a national meeting coming up and these profiles are fun ways to get to know each other before all meeting in Toronto. I figured - what's a blog without a survey - so I thought I'd share my answers with you all. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below!
Q. What is your favorite place in the world? Or if you haven't been there yet, what do you think would be your favorite place?
A. This is a two-part answer for me. My favorite place (as in town) is State College, Pennsylvania. The home of Penn State, it's where I made my the majority of my life-long friends, met my husband, had my life changed with Lion Ambassadors and THON and lived the best four (and a half) years of my life. My other favorite place (as in building/venue) is Shutters on the Beach in Santa Monica, California. This hotel is absolutely breathtaking and as soon as I set foot in it, I feel alive yet relaxed. Someday I hope to design and build a home that will mimic the look and feel of Shutters.
A. I hope I am answering this honestly when I say Turtle Soup from Commander's Palace in New Orleans. Erin, do you remember anything else from vacation that I am forgetting?
A. Since moving to Edmonton, my answer to this question has changed. You can see my 'Pittsburgh' answer here. But in Edmonton, I would start my day (like I do everyday) with a french press cup of hazlenut creme coffee from Second Cup. Then I would get in a good workout with friends: a bike ride, run, skiing, etc. Then we'd take the dogs to the park for a run or some chuck-it time before coming home to FaceTime with my family, Shaun's family and our nieces. I'd make a trip to the Farmer's Market for some fresh meats, fruits and vegetables and then we'd have friends over for dinner and drinks on our patio.
A. I'm going to answer this like the majority of people I know, I would imagine. I would sleep.
A. I would develop some gene that could be placed in people so that their bodies could self-provide nutrition. This gene would be so great that no one would ever go hungry and everyone's bodies would receive the best vitamins and nutrients needed to survive and life a long, happy life.
