A small animal that gets a lot done. I'm not sure what that would be…but I'm it.

I guess I'm doing it. I love what I do. 

6. If you had a super power, what would it be?
I'm sorry, I don't think I would want a super power. I've thought about this for a while. There are things that are appealing to most of them, but then I kept thinking of the negativeslike I think it would be cool to see in the future, but would it, it would change the way you live today

I love hard. (sometimes this isn't great). I pour everything I have into relationships, friends, work etc.

This is so difficult for me. There are so many places I would want to go…but I have always wanted to go to Australia and still would love to.

I don't have a preference and in our home right now we don't have a holder that allows either…so even better.

Aw, I love this! You've completed 2 marathons? Which ones did you run? Running a marathon is one of my New Years resolutions so I'll take any advice!
