Kindred Connections

Kristin over at Windy Poplars is holding her very first 'Kindred Connections' Wednesday and I thought I'd join in. Please drop by her place and read all about it to see if you'd like to join as well! It's a great way to meet other 'kindred spirits' with whom you share some common interests. :)

Windy Poplars

1. If you could describe your desired lifestyle in one word, what would it be?
RELAXED! The very best days around here are when the kids are home from school, we have nowhere we have to be and nothing we absolutely must do. This week they're on spring break and for the most part we are enjoying it very much. :) The only downfall is that there are still school related practices and events during this time.

2. What style of home is your "House of Dreams"?
I'm fortunate enough to be living in it. :) We built 12 years ago and we built what made us happy. A two-story country farmhouse with a porch that wraps around one side and a BIG country kitchen. Nothing jacuzzi tub, no heated floors, none of that. Just a HOME. :)

3. If you could live in a fictional story/movie, which would it be and why?

I'd have to say Anne of Green Gables. The setting was gorgeous...PEI with all of its breathtaking scenery and the ocean. That beautiful farm and the quaint farmhouse. And it took place in a time when ladies were ladies and knew how to act as such, and no one was afraid of hard work.

4. Do you prefer coffee or tea? Favorite kind?
I'm definitely not a coffee drinker. I do enjoy tea, both iced and hot. If it is iced, I prefer unsweetened or very lightly sweetened. If it is hot, I prefer Constant Comment. :)

5. Share the last sweet/romantic thing your hubby did for you.
Well, the Hubster isn't terribly romantic. When we were dating I would receive cards in the mail with these wonderfully sweet letters he'd written while we were apart. I still have them and read them occasionally. Unfortunately it seems that time and familiarity steal away that romance little by little if you let it. :( And it really is a shame. We're all a little happier when we feel loved and wanted. It seems it is always those we love the most who are taken for granted.
