1.Tell us a funny story about a date night out with your husband.
Grace: a prayer, a gift freely given, honor bestowed with one’s presence, simple elegance, my youngest child’s name.
2.What are the (2) most important things in your kitchen and why?
I’m hooked on Breaking Bad. The plot is outrageously entertaining, and I find myself rooting for the deeply flawed, deeply human characters that authentically portray the human struggle between good and evil, and the beauty or devastation wrought by their choices.
3.What do people assume about you that isn’t true?
I write my “to do” list on post-it notes and stick them all over my bathroom mirror, my car dash, my refrigerator. . . . It’s a terrible system of organization, but the rainbow confetti in all of my spaces makes me smile.
4.Tell us a time you demonstrated leadership skills.
“The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena … who strives valiantly; who errs … who spends himself in a worthy cause.” This reminds me that failure is an inevitable part of doing something worthwhile. Failure can only be avoided by attempting nothing, ever.
5.If you had no fear, what would you try?
Sunday is the day I can read the newspaper in full and know for certain that the entire family will be home to eat dinner together. And if the Redskins, Bucs or Steelers are playing, so much the better!
