In our second installment of Seven Questions I picked the brilliant technicolor brain of one of my best friends, Renu. She is a fabulous Manhattan dwelling friend, wife, professional, and mom-to-be! In fact the present wrapped in December paper in my last post was a gift for her growing bean, who is due in December!
Q 1. What's something you wish more people knew?
A 1. Their blood type. I can never seem to remember mine.
Q 2. Current sources of inspiration? (Books, websites, movies, music, people, places, food)
Q 3. What did you want to be when you grew up? What do you do now?
A 3. My mom reminds me that my first proclaimed aspiration was to be a 'doggie doctor.' I am the farthest thing from a vet. Just took a new job in finance (my background) and will be taking on the job of a lifetime (being a mama) in December!
Q 4. When you look back on your first love, how do you think your idea of love has changed or stayed the same? What have you learned from then to now?
A 4. Changed: Love doesn't have to be rife with barriers and sacrifice. When it is the right person, things will flow and it will come together and just work, unobstructed.Stayed the same: It is perfectly OK to be infatuated with your partner, even after 5.5 years!
Q 5. What is your biggest weakness? (Spiritual, disciplinary, dietary)
Q 5. Inability to commit to an exercise routine. Ever.
Q 6. Three things you want or are working toward in your future?
Q 6. A house. A creative enterprise at some point. A kick-ass family of my own to add to the two families I already have.
Q 7. And finally, for my records, chocolate/chocolate, chocolate/vanilla, vanilla/vanilla or other (please specify)? (This is helpful in case I am ever bringing you dessert).
A 7.With regards tocupcakes?Vanillawithvanillaicing! Or carrot with orangevanillaicing! Orvanillawithchocolate icing! You decide. [OK, hummingbird cupcakes! Since you introduced me to them!]
