Latest wondrous moment:
On a recent Sunday, my husband Patrick was golfing and I was running errands. After we were both finished we were supposed to meet for brunch. Typically enough, the golf game ran long. Instead of meeting Patrick at a restaurant I decided I would set up a little picnic for us in our backyard.

It was incredibly romantic. The sun was shining, birds were chirping and the smell of spring was in the air. We even got to watch a turtle swim from one side of our pond to the other – it took about an hour! Its moments like this that make one realize what’s really important in life and be especially grateful for the little things like my husband, my beautiful yard and swimming turtles.

This was one wondrous moment I never wanted to end.

If someone said “Go to your Happy Place,” where would you go?:
Easy, my living room! I would get curled up on the couch in front of the fireplace with a juicy magazine while watching E! or a funny sitcom or reality show. I would be in flannel pajamas and have my laptop in front of me. I am obviously a media junkie, hence the magazine, TV and laptop.

That’s called Sunday.

You just have to know this about me:
As rock ‘n roll and contemporary as I think I am, I am totally country! I love cooking from scratch, trips to the farmers market and doing arts and crafts (that aren’t very good, because I don’t have an artistic bone in my body!) I go from following local classic rock cover bands to painting bird houses and making homemade cider! I guess and I am little bit country AND a little bit rock ‘n roll.
