Follow Up Questions

My friend, Hillary, had some follow up questions for me after yesterday's post, so here goes:

1. Where is your dream vacation?
I dreamed of Paris my whole life and then when I went there it was even better than my dreams, so much so, we've gone back 2 times and dream about going again and again:)
Lately we've been talking a lot about Belgium (Bruges & Brussels) too...though we have lots of dream spots (enough that I had to start a 'places I want to go' board on pinterest;)

2. If you could have on super power, what would it be?
Maybe to fly super fast so it didn't take so long to get to all the places I dream of going!;)
Probably more so, I'd love to be able to live my life in such a way that people see God's love and come closer to Him:)

3. What is your favorite old-time TV show? (MASH, Brady Bunch etc.)
Gilmore Girls is what came to mind, but that's not old time is it?  But I miss it!
I think Petticoat Junction is a hoot and remember watching reruns when I was a little girl at lunch...I wanted to be Betty Joe (cause she got Steve;).
And I also remember watching One Day at a Time when I was little.

4. If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chocolate seemed the obvious answer, but I don't think if it was the only thing I could eat that would work, so then I tried to come up with a more balanced response...  I thought about berries, bananas, granola, potatoes, seafood...and many others that I love, but then I came back to it, chocolate, that's what I would eat:)

5. Favorite color, and why.
PINK!  I'm a girlie-girl and have loved pink since I was tiny.  I love all things vintage and feminine and frilly and pink conveys that all.  It feels romantic to me.  Now that said, don't ask me how much pink is in my home (I live with my husband you know so there isn't much), but I love rich colours too...and reds are just darker pinks, so I often have red (or even pink's cousin, purple on).

6. What is the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?
Go back to Paris with my husband, of course!;)  From there we could plan the good we could do with this good fortune.

7. Do you prefer coffee or tea, and why?
I like both equally.  My great Aunt Bammie gave me tea as a wee girl and so I learned early to appreciate a proper cup of tea (to me tea must be a proper tea leaf, not what many herbal teas these days are made of, and my favourite is black tea with mil).  I love everything about tea...teacup, teapots, all fits with what I told you I love in #5.
I like coffee too, but I'm more of  latte/macchiato girl than a fresh brew.  I love my Starbucks because it's an experience not just a drink, it's for all your senses, what you see, smell, taste, hear and feel.  There's a richness that I love, and there's something just so friendly about going for coffee with a friend:)

8. Pumpkin Pie or Apple Pie?
Both can be good...neither would be my a year a slice of either is divine though:)

9. If you had Aladdin's magic lamp, what would your three wishes be?
(1) world peace (seriously that people would know God's love:)  (2) for health & wellness for my family and me and friends (3) to be able to do the things I love to do mainly (not mainly the things that pay the bills)

10. Fame vs. Fortune -what would you choose and why?
I don't think I'd choose either...too much of either would probably lead to a fall.  I have a propensity to want everyone to love me and I've had to learn to surrender that to God because it can lead to people pleasing so I don't think I'd pick fame, though I would like to be liked.
As for fortune, I would like to be comfortable and help people and be able to do the things I dream of doing with my husband, but  I'm afraid that big fortune could lead to striving or know, the more you have, the more you have to take care of...and there's no freedom in that.

11. Why do you blog? What inspires you
I started blogging as a young mommy to share my thoughts...then I became a bit inconsistent...then I started to create more and my husband told me that I need to share what I created (because he said I gave everything away), so I started sharing my projects on my blog.

I would like to someday really write more.  I have a lot inside of me to say, but haven't found the time to do it consistently, but one day... It's always good to have an idea you're looking forward to:)

Much of my inspiration comes from the people I create things for, and much of my inspiration comes from the places I've traveled and the places I dream about going.

Sherri you are a beautiful woman of God. I hope that some day I can blog with such vibrant words about the love of God and his mission for me and my life. It's an inspiration. If you ever find the time, you should blog about your life and your thoughts. It's a treasure to read. I'm certain i'm not alone in that thought...
Thanks for being such a great friend. : )
