1. What inspires you?

The way the wind blows the pepper tree branches, the feeling of salt water on my skin. The way people smile and laugh, eyes and all the stories they hold. The aromas of a farmers market and the colors of sunrise. Animals and the way they love and survive. I am truly moved by the simple beauty of the everyday.

 

2. Who is a woman you admire?

Toni Morrison, Katie Meyler, Wangari Maathai, Ruthie Lindsey, Dr. Wanjiku Kironyo, May Lindstorm and Jamie Beck. 

 

3. What is something you do to take time for yourself?

Reading, getting lost in books and creating in the kitchen. I also love organic beauty and can always be found in a face mask!

 

4. WHAT IS SOMETHING YOU ARE PROUD OF?

The relationships I have with people, and the animals I have had the pleasure to love. Nothing makes me feel more proud than being surrounded by people who I love.

 

5. WHAT IS SOMETHING ON YOUR LIST TO DO IN THE FUTURE.

I don't think much about the future. I tend to try to live for right now. Tomorrow I would like to be alive, I would love to kiss my husband and enjoy the day.
