My first kiss: My husband and I have two different memories! How bad is that? It was on the couch in my parent’s living room. So not planned. Spontaneous and surprising — it was GOOD!
Love is … a decision. It is waking up every morning and choosing to sacrifice because it all means THAT much.
What all single people should remember: Live your life to the fullest wherever you are at. You won’t regret it.
The biggest misconception about marriage: That you’ll live happily ever after. It’s a lot of happy laced with struggles along the way. Embracing the “dance” is key.
If I could go on a date with anyone in the world (dead or alive), it would be … my husband?! Or Iron Man.
My celebrity crush is Robert Downey Jr. because I’m shallow and think he’s cuter than a basket full of Easter bunnies!
A photo of a time when I loved myself the most: Being a mom feels so natural for me. I can feel my heart glowing the most when I am with my kids, and I love myself the best just like that!
My spirit animal: Sparrow.
The one piece of advice I’d give to a new parent: Have grace on yourself! It’s really, really hard to be a parent, but so worth it.
My favorite Disney movie: Beauty and the Beast.
My hidden talent: I play djembe. Not many people know that.
The one word that best describes me: Passionate.
