Blog Award Love.
The lovely Krisitn tagged me with this award!! Thanks love!
Who/What inspires you?
Well this could be answered in so many ways. There are so many people that inspire me for so many reasons, family, friends, colleagues etc. But for today, since I have teaching on the brain pretty much 24/7 I am going to say GOOD teachers inspire me. I have been incredibly blessed to have worked with the worlds BEST Master Teacher when I was doing my student teaching. Seriously she is my teaching role model and I hope that we never lose touch and that no matter how busy I get I will always make time to visit her class. Because it's so important as a teacher to watch your colleagues and learn from them. I also have been blessed to have so many good friends as teachers and watching them in action or learning from them, hearing their stories inspire me. It's amazing to see these women doing something that I not only respect so much but aspire to do as well as them!
What is your favorite season and why?
My favorite season is definitely Fall. Especially in the Bay Area...it's our most consistent warm/sunny season but it also gets cool enough to break out the sweaters and layers..well lets be honest in San Francisco you always dress in layers. But I love the changing of the leaves, especially in the South Bay where Mr. Jones' family lives it is so beautiful with the rolling hills and beautiful fall colors. I love fall scents, I tend to bake more in the fall, and I love everything about Thanksgiving.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
There is so much to look forward to this year I can't pick one! Visiting my family in NYC and NC are top of the list. I also have Lindsay and Bens Wedding in May and Roomie & Marks wedding in Sept!
If you could write a book about anything, what would it be about?
I wish I could say it would be something deep and moving but it's not. It would totally be a book of one liners or funny things that my friends have said or done. I love to laugh and my gf's give me plenty of good material.
What is your greatest passion?
Family. My own and my future family. I cannot wait to have a family of my own and being a mom will hands down be my greatest passion when it happens. I'm nowhere near that place in my life but I would be lying if I said I didn't think about it every day. ;)
If you could change one thing about your life or yourself, what would it be and why?
I really have been trying to not focus on regret this year but I have to be honest and say that I would go back to myself as a freshman in college and change my major to education waaay back when. I think that one small change would have had a major impact on my life and would have given me so much more direction during those crazy college years ;)
Lastly, what is your favorite novel?
Little Women. I read this for the 1st time in 4th grade and have read it several times over the years. I love all of the March sisters and relate to each one in one way or another. Their story gave me plenty of "dramatic play" ideas as a kid and still as an adult I love their spirit, innocence, heart and love for one another and their family. (and when they made the movie...ohh swoooon over Christian Bale as the "Laurie Boy" made my little 10yr old heart pitter patter)
