What's your favorite place you've ever visited?

Visiting Mount Vernon (in 2010) was the most surreal traveling experience I've ever had. I was in Baltimore for a conference and the option to make a side trip to Mount Vernon came up, but I found myself expecting that part of the trip to fall through at the last minute. Walking the grounds and looking out over the views was pretty amazing. I grew pretty fond of George Washington sometime over the last 10 years and I actually want to go back to Mount Vernon some day!

Of the years you have lived thus far - which year is the most memorable and why?

My 15th year was pretty memorable. It was a tough year in a lot of ways, but I started standing on my own two feet, I discovered what being a Christian was really all about (living for the glory of God in all areas of life), and things just started making sense.

What inspires you? 

God, His Word, and people that love Him inspire me the most. I love hearing about what people are learning from Him and how it is getting them through or challenging them to be more obedient to Him.

It's no secret that I'm also a fan of words, pictures, and food. Words communicate things, pictures commemorate things, and food plays a crucial role in bringing people together. I'm always gleaning from people who are masters in these areas.

What are three things that make getting through winter a little bit easier? 

Warm clothes - sweaters, socks, hats, and gloves are pretty much my favorite.

The shorter days - I never thought I'd say this, but I've really come to enjoy the slowness of winter.

Christmas - My favorite holiday distracts me while the last bits of fall are going away and since Christmas doesn't end for us until Epiphany, it has a way of giving me plenty of time to rejoice and celebrate the gift of Christ! Celebrations make everything better.

  1. Yay, I love these posts!! And your answers are all spot on :-) I couldn't agree more with your sources for inspiration and your love of warm clothes! Mt Vernon looks so cool…lucky you getting to visit it!

    And my answers:

    1) San Francisco. We went there on a high school band trip, and it was the first time I'd seen white sand, lemon trees, and sea lions. I want to go back there someday!
    2) 18, for similar reasons to yours at 15…I really evaluated my faith that year, and had to think about how it affected the choices I made, etc. Also 22, because it's the year I got married, which was the biggest (and best) change in my life
    3) You nailed it! I would have to say the same things, and add music
    4) Warm clothes…yes! Hot beverages (I drink way more tea in the winter) and BOOKS!
