My Favorites...

Movie: Steel Magnolias

Song: “I’ll be Home for Christmas”

Snack: Anything with melted cheese.

Time of Day: 8:30 p.m.; the kids are in bed and I finally get to sit down.

Quote: My own? “Life is short, be colorful.” Someone else? “Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds.” – Albert Einstein

When I was younger I wanted to be…

I wanted to be a fashion designer.

If I could change one thing about my career…

I never would have cried.

The one thing I have to do everyday is…

I have to remember how lucky I am and keep moving ahead no matter what comes along.

The biggest fear I have conquered is…

I had to learn to truly trust my own instincts and lead not follow. I have never let myself down when I do.
