You may have seen the Sisterhood of the World of Bloggers Award going around from blog to blog. I’m not sure when it all started, but recently I had the good fortune of being tagged by Lisa, a sweet friend and the incredibly talented interior designer behind Lisa Mende Design. This means that I’ve been asked to answer her 10 questions, then select 10 new bloggers and ask them to answer my 10 questions. Thank you Lisa for nominating me! And here we go…
Q :: If you could have any job besides the one you have right now, what would it be?
A :: Wow, that’s tough. I’m living my dream job right now but, if I had to pick something I think I would be a textile designer. As you may know, I’m a little obsessed with fabrics and wallpaper!

Q :: If you had one day completely alone how would you fill your time?
A :: I’d spend the day at the beach under an umbrella with the latest shelter magazine.
Q :: What is the best vacation you’ve ever taken?
A :: A trip to Kauai with my husband and while I was pregnant with my first. It’s my favorite of the Hawaiian island and truly a slice of heaven.

Q :: What is your favorite summertime drink?
A :: I don’t drink much alcohol, so sparkling water with lime does it for me. However, I’d really like to try this sparkling cucumber-basil limeade this summer!
Q :: If you could pick any designer, living or dead, to decorate your house, who would it be?
A :: Celerie Kemble. I adore her neo-traditional style, use of color & pattern and overall aesthetic. How beautiful is this girls’ bedroom I spotted in her portfolio!
Q :: If you could rewind twenty years and give yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
A :: Focus on what’s important and don’t sweat the small stuff.

Q :: What is your favorite family tradition?
A :: Celebrating Christmas with family in Tahoe. There is something magical about being the mountains with the snow.
Q :: What is your most prized possession besides your family? (think materially here ladies)
A :: My grandmother’s artwork. The sunflower oil painting is just one of several I treasure.
