If you could be any animal, what animal would you be? 
An egret: filled with grace and a beauty that can't escape them. They catch the wind and sore. 
What is your favorite trip you've been on? What made is special? 
The first time Bill and I went to Denmark was what dreams were made of; years of sacrifice, collaboration, and beautiful work got us there. And when we flew home, I had an Aletta secretly growing inside. :)

I would love to be a part of one of Björk's choirs.

What's your favorite gift you've ever received? 

I love receiving a home made gift, so, I would say getting cards from my Mom is my favorite! She has perfected her card making hobby and creates fun and thoughtful cards and sends them all year round. Gotta love it when she sends a gift card to the grocery store too, so practical!

If you could move anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Australia. My family would spend long days at the beach. I would learn to surf and snorkle. We'd eat fresh avocados and mangos. We'd swim and sizzle in the hot hot heat.
