Day 4 - Your favorite book
I love to read and I could come up with a ton of 'favorites' (Eat Pray Love, White Mary, Poisonwood Bible, He's Just Not That Into You..and there are plenty more!) But my favorite book that even ranks above all these and others is:

I Know This Much is True, by Wally Lamb, just has it all. It's a compelling story of redemption. A love story. A story about mental illness. There's a story within the story that is that is incredibly well crafted and integrated into the main story. There are surprising and believable twists. It isn't a spoiler if I summarize: it is a story about identical twins and one of them is schizophrenic. The protagonist is the sane twin and the story opens with the schizophrenic twin cutting off his own hand at a public library to protest the first Gulf War. What follows, is an epic novel you don't want to miss.

Day 4 - What is your dream career?
Well, this is an easy one! My dream career would be beading full time. I suppose it isn't so far out of reach. But so far it just doesn't pay the bills. Oh my gosh though - what a dreamy idea it is to think about beading ALL DAY! :)

Day 4 - Your parents
They married young, and had babies young. My mom was 19 & my dad 22 when they were married, and they had me a little over a year later. My little brother came three years after that. Then they divorced about 10 years after that. They are both really two of the nicest people you'd ever meet. Like the kind of nice that if you ever met either of them you would have to comment to me on how very nice they are! They have been incredibly supportive to me my entire life no matter what the circumstance. And above all I've always felt incredibly loved by each of them! I'm a pretty lucky gal, huh?

  1. Oh you are a tease on the sneak peak and I so want to see what you come up with. That is awesome that even though your parents divorced they still made you feel loved and supported. That doesn't happen as often as it should. Beading full time Oh Yeah Baby!
