Loving Hodgepodge.

1. What is something you are loving right now?

Life in general. I am actually very content with my life right now, happy with where I am and excited about what is coming up.

2. Paris, Venice, New York, and Rome are considered four of the most romantic cities in the world. Which one would you most like to visit?

I have been to Paris, Venice and Rome, so by virtue of process of elimination I would guess New York. I wasn't in love with Paris, I would go back, but it wouldn't be my first choice in France. I loved Venice and would love to go back again.

3. Are you a romantic?

Yes, Absolutely. I believe in the power of love to heal and bring people together. And I believe that love can change the world.

4. What's your favorite love story made for the Big Screen?

Funny Face with Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. It's wonderful.

5. Everyone loves Pooh bear and friends...which character are you most like and why? Click here for help in answering this question.

6. What's the best chocolate something you've ever eaten?

The best chocolate ever? I think it was a extra dark flourless chocolate cake. I don't like chocolate a lot, especially not milk chocolate. I enjoy it, but I don't crave it. I prefer really bitter dark chocolate when I have chocolate, but will pick lemon over chocolate on the desert cart 97% of the time.

7. Share a favorite quote about love.

"Love me when I least deserve it, for that is when I need it most" according to Pinterest this is a Swedish Proverb. I love the idea behind it, that love is a decision we make that needs to be carried out no matter what. People who are the most desperate for love and acceptance tend to show it by acting in ways that are unlovable.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

I am totally excited about the Valentines that AJ is making for her class this year. They turned out so cute. We made four strand braided friendship bracelets in her school colors. Now all that's left to do is for me to make the ones for her teachers (my first grader has 6, her school is awesome).


  1. I am Kanga also. Point 7, quote, so true!

  2. I am Kanga also. Point 7, quote, so true!

  3. Hmmmmm, now I wondering if there is such a thing as lemon cream chocolate covered candies out there somewhere. LOL Those bracelets that AJ is making sounds soooooooooooooo sweet!!!

    Walking in Sunshine is my Wednesday Link...for Hodgepodge answers, scroll down a bit.

  4. I'm a Kanga too! Oh, great quote! I've heard that one before, so true!!

  5. It seems that almost everyone playing along today is a kanga. I'm sure that means something : ) I love the really dark chocolate too. Also a big fan of anything lemon. To sum it up-I like dessert!

  6. Love your quote! And the valentine bracelets sound precious!

  7. I suppose it would be easier to pick the romantic cities if you've been there before. My husband was just in NYC for the first time last Sept. He has a couple of days to sight see and really enjoyed it, especially the different cultures in such a small area. He wants to take us back there now that he is 'experienced'!

  8. The Valentine bracelets sound great! I loved finding special valentines when I was in school.

    I have occasionally eyed the key lime pie at restaurants or the berry cheesecake, but then I always feel like I'd be cheating on the chocolate if I did that. :D

  9. I am dying to go to NYC, but would sure love to visit the other cities, as well! Enjoy your evening!

  10. Oh my...your #7 truly moved me. Thank you for sharing it. I'm going to find a way to post it in my classroom.

  11. Funny face is my daughter's favorite movie, so we watch it all the time.


I love to hear from you!
