What is your favorite Christmas/festive movie?
I'd have to say, Santa Claus (1985) It's a pretty old movie but I remember watching it so much as a child that I always have to watch it when it comes on TV. It a classic (to me)
What is your favorite flower, favorite color?
I love roses, and daisy's. And Purple. Purple. Purple of any variety is my favorite color :)
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
Sweet tea. I'm from the south and I don't think I could live without it. And don't give that 'instant tea' crap! I want the real deal... real sugar and all!!
What is your passion?I have a lot of passions. My family-- husband and 2 daughters- I have a passion for reading and a new found passion for writing. What could be better than that?
What is your favorite time of year?I have 2 favorites, but for 2 different reasons. Spring- when all the flowers are in bloom. When you walk outside and the chill in the air is gone and there is a soft breeze and you get that feel that Summer is coming. I love it.
My 2nd favorite is the Christmas season, not for the cold (could we have Christmas in the Spring? It would work for me, what about you?) I like the mood it seems to put people into (for the most part). Everyone seem a little bit nicer, a little more caring. My children get so excited for Santa, they can't hardly stand themselves, the decorations, the music... and most importantly, to celebrate the real meaning of Christmas. Jesus is the reason for the season :)
What is your favorite time of day?
Nighttime. When the kids are in bed, my husbands doing his own thing and it's just me and my laptop... writing, writing, writing.
What is your favorite physical activity?
Physical? Ugh! Really... that's probably the problem. I should be more active. I'd have to say swimming. We recently bought a pool last year and we've really been enjoying it as a family. I love it.
What is your favorite vacation?
Without question... the beach. The ocean breeze, sand beneath my toes, soaking up the sun's rays. Yeah, that's my kind of life right there. I'd be happy to spend my retirement (or lottery earnings) in this very spot. There's plenty of trees. Who'd take a hammock and join me??--->

Now for the lovely writers I'm tagging:The sweat dripped down the back of my neck and other unmentionable parts of my body as I ran. The hot temperature of the September heat made me realize I probably picked the worst time of day to force myself around this track. I looked across the pond where I originally started and knew there was no way I'd be able to push myself all the way around before collapsing from exhaustion or worse, a heat stroke.Hearing a noise behind me, I stepped off the path and jogged near the edge of the water so I wouldn't force the person behind me to slow down. I looked over at a man as he fell into stride beside me. He nodded, giving me a smile. I smiled back, hearing unknown lyrics to a loud song stream from the headphones in his ears as he started to pass. Then out of nowhere, I fell forward. The only thing I could see in front of me was the pond. I saw a park bench in my line of sight and I tried to reach for it, but missed. The momentum of my body propelled me forward and I screamed before I was silenced with a mouth full of water.
