Passion fruit

8. What are 5 passions you have?

These are in no particular order...

1. Books. Let's face it, there's nothing like a really good book. A story that can just suck you in completely. One more chapter turns into 3, then 5, then you somehow end up at the end of the book. A book you just don't want to end or a sequel you have to wait for (sometimes a whole year, it's torture!).

2. Pictures. I love pictures. That's as simple as it gets. It's as good as capturing that perfect moment completely by accident. You can almost always look at a picture and remember exactly what was happening. Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you cry, sometimes all you can do is smile because there really are no words. Even if a picture is worth a thousand of them.

3. Writing. Speaking of words, I could write for days if the muse strikes. It seems like the easiest way to communicate what's going on in my head. Poetry being my better work, I wish I had the attention span for a novel. Either way, i'm happy.

4. Baking. My dream kitchen has professional grade appliances so I can bake to my hearts content. It's a form of creativity. I can't paint or sculpt but I can make a mean chocolate cake (mean to your waistline anyway). Cookies, cakes, brownies, pies, any sugar laden treat I can think of I want to create.

5. Love. Yes, I am passionate about love. It's as varied as a rainbow. It comes in so many colors, shapes, and forms. It's simply indescribable. Love for yourself, love for your partner, love for your children, love for your family...there's too many to ever list. The beautiful thing about it is you can hold so much of it that you think you're full, but then more pours in and there's magically more room.

Dream a little dream...

7. What is your dream job, and why?

Anything having to do with books would be ideal for me. You know that library in Beauty in the Beast? That's totally my dream library.

When I can remember...

6. What is the hardest thing you have ever experienced?

Honestly, childbirth, no if, ands, or buts about it. It's kind of like getting a tattoo, only more painful but you do end up with something beautiful (or hopefully in the tattoos case).
On September 26th, Caden came a week and a half early and weighed in at 8lbs 12oz and 21in long. I can only imagine how big he would of been if I had gone full term (10/5). I definitely wanted an epidural but with the pitocin (I was barely dilating, if at all, and my water had broken almost 12 hours earlier), I went from 2-3cm straight to 10cm. So yea, no time for the epidural now! I'm actually quite proud of myself. I made almost no noise while I was pushing (minus the occasional grunting). That is, until he crowned and I dropped the f-bomb (pretty loud from what I remember). Yea, I totally tore and it was completely painful but absolutely worth it.
