LOCATION: Seattle, Washington
AGE: I'm 42.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN BLOGGING FOR: Only since May 2009.
WHAT IS THE BIGGEST MISCONCEPTION THE MEDIA GIVES OF WOMEN:
The perception of women's beauty is portrayed and virtually dictated in the media through a very narrow ideal. I would love to see the media embrace more of the real beauty of all of the very unique differences of women i.e. age, shapes, size, style. Many women still feel inferior about their bodies only becuase they are different from what the media has streamlined and defined, when in fact they are so beautiful and perfect just the way they are!
WHAT INSPIRES YOU THE MOST: I'm inspired to witness others follow their true passion. When they find their calling, and get excited about getting up in the morning and doing something everyday that inspires them and makes them happy.
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING IN YOUR SPARE TIME:
I love the outdoors, so it's either running, walking, or in the winter it's snowboarding...and of course blogging!
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO CONTRIBUTE TO THIS BLOG:
I love reading all of the wonderful posts on this blog. It's inspiring to be a part of such a talented and incredible group of women.
DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE DISH:
It's not really a dish, but I could eat sushi all day long. For me it's like eating desert!
YOUR FAVORITE PLACE TO SPEND TIME:
Near the ocean or in the snow!
WHAT MAKES YOU PROUD TO BE A WOMAN:
When I witness other women in the spotlight who do great things with a good heart, with strength and dignity and flare. Women like Ellen Degenerous and Oprah Winfrey to name a few.
BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU EVER RECEIVED WAS:
Love and allow yourself to be loved. Show it in simple ways to someone on the street, to family to friends and strangers etc., and everything else will fall into place.
