Questions from Kate for me:

1) What is your favorite piece of jewelry and why?
I never ever take off this ring. I opted for something a little more practical than a class ring in high school. It's also kind of sentimental, because I knew how much my mom wanted me to have something nice and how hard she worked to save money to buy it for me. It's perfect, and I love it. 

2) Is your style trendy or classic?
Very classic. I like to buy things that I consider timeless.

3) Country or city?
I am slowly becoming a mix of both. I love my pastures and mountains, but I have found that living in the city has too many perks to part with. 

4) Do you believe in alternative medicine (acupuncture, chiropractor, etc.)?
I'll never turn down a good massage. 

5) Do you have any pets? What kinds?
I have the most adorable 3 year old lab rescue named Casey Michelle. I never thought it was possible to love a furry little baby more.

6) Who is your role model?
My parents. They are such hard working, humble people..

7) If you could pass one thing on to the next generation, what would it be and why?
A sense of wonder. So many of them are too caught up in whatever that they forget to stop and take in all of the beautiful and special things that life has to offer. 

8) Do you like history? What kind (American, British, royalty, etc.)?
I love pioneer and civil war history. Anything about the old antebellum south or the the frontier sucks me in immediately.

9) What is the last book that you read?
I am currently making my way through The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown. I highly recommend it, or anything by him for that matter.

10) Have you ever traveled outside of the country? Where to?
Only if the Bahamas counts

11) What is your favorite dessert? Why?
Peach Cheesecake! I can never ever find it, but even the thought of it makes my mouth water.
