The lovely ladies of The French Hen's Nest have tagged me in an Eleven things tag, where you are supposed to share 11 things about yourself and answer 11 questions they have asked you.

What is one of your happiest memories?

When I was really little we lived on a base in Virginia and my Dad and I used to go out to a blue swing set in our neighborhood.  We had a fun little routine where I would go in his closet and pick out which shoes he would wear (always the same pair) and he would wear them :) and then he'd push me high into the air so that I could stretch out my toes and imagine I was touching the tree tops.  

What is your decorating style?

Earthy, whimsical, and contemporary

If you could move to another country, where would you go?

Hm...tough...Australia or England

Where do you feel closer to God, Beach, Mountains,
or somewhere else?

Beach, hands down.  But there are times hiking that I feel that sense of peace.

What is your favorite thing to do?

I love going wine tasting! I think it's fun, meeting new people and talking over some great (hopefully) wines.

What is one thing you would do if given the opportunity?

Have a small farm, fruits & veggies, maybe a few chickens and milk cows. 

Do you dream of a Caribbean cruise or Paris Flea Market?


What movie can you watch again and again?

ooooh this is hard... Pride & Prejudice the 1940's Greer Garson and Laurence Olivier version, Despicable Me or I Love You Man 

Buy it new, make it look new or love it old?

love it old

What do you do to relax?

Yoga, play with my pup, read or just get outside in the fresh air!
