THREE WORDS OR A PHRASE THAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR CHILDHOOD:

Gray is always my go to color. In life we fill our schedules with meetings, errands, and just general everyday stuff. With so much chaos in a day its nice to have a color to calm the storms of a busy mind wether its a mysterious cool tone gray or a warm feel good gray .

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR AND WHY?

Passiflora Vine. When it is first growing it looks like any other vine. Nothing unique or special about it. Throughout the vine different unique twists and turns form as it matures and grows. Every so often a flower blooms vibrant and unique from any other flower. I try and think of myself always growing and learning no matter what direction I go. In our lives we are so focused on being in the “normal” that we miss out on the fun in life. Embrace the weird twists and turns and wherever you end up in life don’t be afraid to bloom.

Family, Imagination and Pine Needles. (Technically, that's 4 words.) I remember playing outside everyday when I was younger. Making forts in the woods with my sister, sweeping our dirt fort floor of the auburn pine needles to make it welcoming for imaginary company, waking up to run into the woods with nothing but the clothes on your back, (wallet? cell phone? what are those?) I didn't come back until the sun was going down and I heard the faraway call of my mother beckoning us for dinner. Actually now that I think about it, we had an actual dinner bell that she would ring. It was the size of my head, so it was pretty loud, even in the woods.

A quote that my mother has rooted in my brain comes to mind: "Do one thing every day that scares you." Eleanor Roosevelt was a wise woman, and she continues to inspire me to live life to the absolute fullest. It reminds me that fear is inevitable, but it is what we decide to do with it that determines how we end up living. In other words, do not let fear keep you from experiencing the incredible life you were blessed with living.

THREE WORDS OR A PHRASE THAT BEST DESCRIBES YOUR CHILDHOOD:

As of now, I really appreciate 'cool' colors. How about green? Or maybe blue? If I were to be a color, I would be blue-green. One, because I cannot make up my mind, but also because they are the two colors that remind me most of nature. Trees, little baby plant sprouts, water, and the sky. I guess that makes me all of those? Perfect.  

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COLOR AND WHY?

If I were to ever live the life of a flower, I would choose to live as a peony. It possesses elegant strength, a sweet personality, and confidence in their bloom. Fun fact: in Spain it is known as the "royal rose of the mountain", and they have been known to possess medicinal properties. Essentially, a beautiful bloom that heals the soul. How lucky would I be to be one?!
