Well, this was certainly a surprise! I've only been blogging a month and I was nominated for something. Jeepers Creepers! Amazing!

So these are the 11 questions I was asked to answer:
1. What 3 things (other than significant others, children or family) bring you joy?
I don't think it's fair to ask for 3 because there are so many, but...
Reading - a way to explore yourself and the world

Traveling - exploration of a different type

Learning - a way to expand your horizons

2. What are your 3 best talents? (no modesty allowed!)

I can read really fast. It can annoy my husband if we're trying to look at something together

I am an elephant or at least was before LB; my memory is seriously awesome (or maybe was).

Learning languages. I haven't taken French since high school but still remember a fair amount in terms of reading and I speak Chinese!

3. Describe 3 times you have been kind to others in the last week.

I have a lunch buddy that I visit every Tuesday who is 12 years old and had a rough life.

I always let people in when driving.

Telling my nanny how much I love her and don't want to lose her despite our moving.

4. What are 3 things you do for fun?

5. What is your favorite color? What do you associate it with?

Right now, a pinky coral color that you see all over the blog! I associate it with happiness!

6. If you had a large fortune in the bank, what would you do with your time?

I would volunteer at every really effective child organization that helps troubled children.

I would take an around the world trip.
