my q&a's, part 2

What is the best Christmas present you've ever received? Ever given?
I really cannot think of an answer to this question. I tend to forget the presents I receive year after year. The only memories I retain from the holidays are the moments spent with family. I cherish those moments. The gifts I receive all run together and are just not that important to me. The best gift I've ever given would probably be when I brought home presents from Disney World for my entire family. It was symbolic and meaningful because I was gone for seven months and when I returned from Orlando my life was so different.

What is your dream job?
Well, to be honest I actually love my current job (director of sales at a hotel). I really enjoy it. If I had to choose another job, I would love to open a children's clothing boutique. I actually wrote a business plan years ago and even have a sketch of how I would like the store layout.

What is one thing in your life you'd like a "do over" on?
I am firm believer in living life without regret. I take every mistake and try to turn it into something positive. As cliche as it sounds, I believe lessons can be learned from every situation - no matter how good or bad. If I was able to go back and have a "do over" then I simply would not be the same person I am today.  Have I made mistakes? Absolutely! Did I try to learn something from those mistakes? Definitely. And God blessed the broken road that led me to where I am today.

I love the Q&A time!

When did you "know" Danny was the one? and how did you know?

What are the top 3 places you'd like to travel to that you haven't ever been to? What are the top 3 that you have been to?

I'll try to think of some more...

Thanks for the comment! I agree - it's the memories that last not the gift! There are so few gifts that I remember. Your blog is so fun! I will be back to check it out soon.
