LOVE IS IN THE AIR

1. What is the most romantic thing anyone has ever done for you?
One time Josh (my husband) ordered pizza after the kids went to bed and we sat on our front porch in candlelight and enjoyed a late night snack and quiet conversation. It was for no reason except just to spend some time together.

2. Who was your first love?
I'm not sure, because I have learned so much about love since being married that I now know that even when I got married I didn't have a very good grasp on love. My first "crush" would have been around 4th grade and it was on Tommy Bell.

3. Chocolates, flowers, or something else?
Anything that shows forethought. That's what I appreciate about gifts the most--not what it is really, but that the person took the time to find something they thought I would like.

4. Do you believe in love at first sight?
Absolutely not. I do believe in attraction, infatuation, and that tingling sensation you get at first sight--but not love. Love takes time and it's less about you and more about the other person. At first sight would just be about you.

5. What do you have planned for this Valentine's Day?
My mom is coming over and I am fixing a special valentine's day dinner.

THINGS THAT GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT

1. Have you ever tried meditation?
I have tried to sit still for awhile and relax and try to focus on God. But I have never meditated nor been successful at sitting still and clearing my mind. The only time I have ever come close to clearing my mind is during extreme pain when I had to focus so that it wouldn't hurt so bad. I wish I could.

2. Do you pray?
Yep. I'm not the type who has a specific time I pray or way I pray or place I pray. It's more like a continual conversation. There have been times when I have literally "gotten on my knees" to pray, but it's not an everyday stance I take.

3. Worst nightmare:
I'm not sure it's my worst, but it's definitely reoccurring and is difficult to shake. I dream of tornadoes. Sometimes people I love are swept away, sometimes I am swept away, sometimes I am successful in keeping my family safe. It's odd.

4. Do trolls live under your bed?
Umm. no.

5. Make a wish:
It's the same one I always make--I wish that my children would grow up to be happy, healthy, and most of all will know and love Jesus.
