Instead of participating in today's Throwback Thursday, I’m linking up with Sunshine from Such Life in the Tropics for something a little bit different – answering a series of “getting to know you” questions she posed to her readers last Wednesday. I always love writing and reading these types of posts, and because it's been a while since I've done one, I figured this would be as good a time as any to jump back on board.
#1 – What is your favorite part of the day, and why?
I just love the evening hours. There’s something so calming to me about the day coming to a close, the fading of the colors against the horizon, and the promise of a tasty meal alongside a refreshing glass of wine.
#2 – If you could meet anybody, dead or alive, who would that be?
Abigail Adams, wife of one former president, mother of another, and an all-around smart, inspiring woman who was far ahead of her time intellectually.

#3 – Are you a "half full" or "half empty" kind of person?
I try to be a “half full” girl, but it honestly depends upon my mood at any given time. I can start feeling pretty down pretty fast when my stars don't align as I'd hoped!
#4 – If you could ask me any question, what would that be?
What was the happiest moment of your life?
#5 – Have you ever been to place you feel as if you've been to before, but haven't?
Maybe I will someday, but there are none I can think of at the moment!
#6 – What is the one thing you’d most like to change about the world?
Less focus on power, competition and violence, and more focus on supporting one another.
#7 – What are you most grateful for?
My good health, my family, husband and friends, my beautiful kitties, and the freedom to pursue my goals and dreams.
#8 – If you just won a million dollars, would you quit your job, and if so, what would you do?
I don't currently have a traditional 9-to-5 job to quit, and I definitely wouldn't give up any of my writing endeavors. I would, however, take more of an opportunity to travel, assist those in need and help support my family.
#9 – Who do you consider to be your best friend?
My mom, sister, husband and the amazing girls I’ve known since elementary and middle school.
#10 – What would you like me to blog about someday?
Sunshine is a huge animal lover, and I always enjoy hearing more about her fun experiences with her own pets and other creatures!
Have a great rest of the week, everyone! This weekend, I'll be off to spend another few days with my family out West for an early holiday celebration. Plane tickets for the actual week of Dec. 25 were astronomically high this year, so I'm saving a bundle by traveling right at the midpoint between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I'm hoping I'll be able to share a quick post or two while I'm there, but if not, I'll check in again as soon as I get back. As always, feel free to follow along on Instagram @heather_28 for updates. Happy holidays!
