Live:

I was born…

St. Paul, Minnesota

My favorite thing about Arizona…

The smell after it rains and that the names of the freeways all start with the word “The.”

I’m listening to…

songs with a BPM of 90 for spin class.

My family…

sleeps through the night!

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Hermione Granger.

One thing I cannot live without…

salty chocolate chip cookies from LGO.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

able to fly. I tried everything. Running really fast down a hill. Jumping really high. Tying a towel around my neck and pretending it was a cape… alas.

I’m inspired by…

risk takers. It’s something I need to get better at.

The one person who motivates me is…

my husband. His belief in me is the greatest motivator I’ve ever known.

If I could change anything in the world, it would be…

microwaves would have a setting for “room temperature butter.”

The perfect day would be…

some of everything: some workout, some work, (some happy hour), some time with my family, and just enough sleep to do it again tomorrow.

My first job was…

organizing marching band uniforms the summer before my freshman year of high school.

My favorite escape…

iced coffee.

My life…

is best when I take a moment to appreciate it.

I’m currently working on…

writing the second installment of my storytelling training series and planning the launch party for my first book (Shameless Plug: it will be at Crudo in Arcadia on May 2 from 6-8 p.m…. e-mail me at RSVPKindraHall@gmail.com if you want to join). That, and teaching my son not to feed Cheerios to my daughter  – he doesn’t seem to notice that she doesn’t have teeth.

Always…

compliment strangers.

Never…

forget your clothes in the washing machine (especially now that the temperature is rising).

Favorite Quote…

“You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.” Anne Lamott

Biggest Dream…

undecided.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

is trying to take the top off my Dove deodorant after I’ve put lotion on my hands. It’s IMPOSSIBLE
