Share Your World

What is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

Hands down, Niagara Falls and the Rocky Mountains are the most amazing natural sights I have seen.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? 

I have 3 siblings and I’m the oldest.

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

This is me- Converse- laid back and casual.


What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

I would have to say that the strangest foods that I have eaten were kumquats and escargot- but not at the same time. While I would eat kumquats again, I’ll take a pass on the slimy escargot.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I am grateful for all of the time I was able to spend with 2 year old little Beej and I look forward to more of that special Nonna/Beej time this week!

Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 29- Open

Nothing gives me a feeling of “open” like standing on top of a mountain! My parents took me and my siblings to the Rocky Mountains and I continued the tradition when my husband and I took our three children.

These mountains have to be the most beautiful I have ever seen and despite severe altitude sickness which cut my pleasure short, I still took in the gorgeous view. Talk about wide, open spaces! When Andrew, who was 9 at the time, decided he was done, he left. And we freaked out! Where do you begin to look for a child on top of a mountain?

My husband quickly found him while I stood hanging onto a rack of clothes, trying to get my bearings. Thank goodness it wasn’t a true emergency because I was lurching around like a zombie and was no help at all. It turned out to be a memorable vacation in more ways than one!
