I love a good journal prompt, and my very favorite journal prompt is one that just asks you to finish a sentence or briefly answer a question so imagine my delight when I discovered that my latest Boden catalog (not familiar with Boden? They are a British retailer that sells colorful, fun clothes) was filled with questions. Here we go, a little Q&A brought to us by Boden. Hope you’ll share an answer or seven, too!
How do you prepare for summer? Fill my book basket with irresistible reads and load up on sunscreen.
What is your definition of success? Doing that which makes your heart glad while attending to one of the world’s many needs.
What’s the best advice you ever received? We too often love things and use people when we should love people and use things.
If I didn’t need to earn money, I would… paint, garden, write, take meals to people and pour all the rest of my energy into Circle de Luz.
What does your bedtime ritual involve? Washing and moisturizing my face, brushing and flossing my teeth, and then watching a little something on DVR- usually an episode of Friends or How I Met Your Mother- before turning the TV off and reading.
What do you never tire of? Reading and learning.
What’s the most rewarding experience you have ever had? Becoming a mother.
What do you think about when you are sunbathing? The book I’m reading, the blissful quiet.
What would you do differently if you had your time again? I’d study abroad for a semester as an undergrad.

What’s your kookiest habit? Counting steps while I climb them.
What’s your view on body art? Cool for other people. I’m just too fickle for it. I know I’d have buyer’s remorse as soon as I saw someone else’s cooler tattoo.
