5 Things You Didn't Know About . . .

This week we are visiting with Kelly of Design Ties! Kelly had included some visuals in with her answers, but unfortunately, I couldn't get them in the post.

Favorite music at the moment: I’m all over the place when it comes to music. I like listening to Smash Mouth in the summer in the convertible with the top down J And I love Colin James & The Little Big Band and The Brian Setzer Orchestra J

Brian Setzer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RfOm2teZiks

If you didn't live where you do, where would you live: In a turquoise & purple house in Nova Scotia J Not sure exactly where, but a place similar to Hells Point – it has a tiny road, tall beach grasses that dance in the wind, and an amazing view of the water.

Favorite cocktail: Strawberry Daiquiri made with Bailey’s Irish Cream instead of rum. Yummy!!!

Best advice you ever received: Well, the most recent best advice I received was from Ruth Wells, a wonderful lady we met on our recent trip to Nova Scotia. Her and her husband sailed together for many years. Now that her husband has Alzheimer’s, Ruth is thankful that the two of them sailed when they did. So I guess what she’s saying is, live for the moment because you have no idea what the future holds.

Person you most admire: Anyone who is good-hearted, respectful, and true to themselves.


Tune in next week to find out 5 Things You Didn't Know About . . . another bloggy buddy! Here's a link to the series with all the links in one spot.
