A typical day in my life includes…

a lot of caffeine, some head shaking, some laughing and then a lot of wine!

I was born…

to boogie.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

sitting outside on the patio with the fire pit on and watching the sunset. There is no place better…anywhere in Arizona!

I’m listening to…

John Legend, how can you not?

My family…

when the lights dim, the dust settles and the party is over, all that is left is friends and family, there is nothing more important to me. All the other stuff just doesn’t matter beyond that.

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

Michelle Obama. I am a moderate republican and didn’t vote for her husband but she exudes such class, sophistication, and elegance and continues to get her message across by being the example, rather than sinking to a lower common denominator.  She is very inspiring to me as that is how I try to live my life.

One thing I cannot live without…

Diet Coke – I’ve tried, can’t do it.

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a fashion designer.

I’m inspired by…

kindness. It is such an easy thing but so lacking these days. I like seeing it in action.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad.

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

less social media and more interpersonal interaction. People don’t talk to each other anymore and doing it behind a computer screen it is too easy to be unkind.

The perfect day would be…

sleep in a little, some spa time, a decadent lunch, some shopping, some wine and then a nap!

My first job was…

a waitress at an ice cream parlor – the stickiest job I have ever had too!

My favorite escape…

a girls trip with my lifelong friends – it doesn’t matter where, we make our own fun!

My life…

is controlled chaos.

I’m currently working on…

perfecting my pilates poses.

Always…

say “thank you” and look someone in the eye when doing it.

Never…

Christmas decorations / music / gifts BEFORE Thanksgiving.

Favorite Quote…

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it is about learning to dance in the rain.”

Biggest Dream…

winning the lottery and spending my life as a philanthropist on a bigger level. It would be so great that your life’s work is helping others have a better one.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

rudeness – who has the time to think up this behavior? It takes so much energy to be rude or disrespectful, kill ’em with kindness instead!
