Anyone else notice the founders of TWSS somehow didn’t answer the 7Q+As last year? Our graphic designer did… she’s quite bossy a strong leader »
1. What are you grateful for today?
I am grateful for my family…and coffee. Definately grateful for coffee.
2. Tell us about one of your friends and what you love about her.
My neighborhood is full of amazing women. I have been so blessed to raise my family surrounded by a wide range of women to call on for parenting advice, emergency babysitting or a stick of butter. Since my children don’t have grandparents that live in town, our neighbor Donna has been our surrogate grandmother. She has cooked for us, attended “grandparen’s day,” and spent countless hours with our children on her back porch.
3. Describe one of the best days of your life.
My family loves to camp. (Although, I cheat and take a coffee pot. Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy!) Away from the hustle and bustle of our life, there is nothing better than sitting at a campsite after a day of hiking, sharing a beer with my mister and watching our kiddos romp through the campground.
4. What’s the best lesson you learned from your mother/grandmother?
My mom loves to laugh. She had four children that could be… Um, rambunctious. Even in the toughest of times, we knew that finding the funny in life was a must. Even as adults, we love to make our mom laugh—even though she is sometimes horrified by our raunchy humor.
5. We’re all unique. What is your special gift?
I can make people laugh—it is my drug of choice. Laughing is good for the soul. I love to make others belly-laugh and I seek out people who can return the favor!
6. What could women be doing to make their community a better place?
There are so many women that are making their communities a better place. I would encourage women to listen to that voice in their head—the “I wish I could do….” voice. It’s never too late to rewrite the script of our lives. Go do that thing you’ve always dreamed about.
7. What would you do if you weren’t afraid?
I would audition for a play. I went to an audition when I was 19—I walked in the door of the theatre and promptly turned around and walked out the door. I’ve always regretted that I let my fear win.
