1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?
I always wanted to have a loving husband, a little boy and a little girl and work in an office. I have the best husband in the world. He loves to cook and clean and he always helps around the house. Thirty-three years ago, I gave birth to twins...a boy and a girl. I've worked in an office ever since I graduated high school and moved up the ranks, learning as I went until I was finally able to open my own business. So I would say I am definitely living my dreams.

2. What is one must have item for the summer?
A new grill. We cook out all the time, even with snow on the ground. Our grill has finally worn out and the replacement parts will cost more than a new grill so we are in the market and just trying to figure out what we want.
3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don't have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
When my kids were little, I never had them stay up on school stuff. I always felt like summers were for relaxation and fun since they both worked very hard during the year. They made very good grades and kept up their homework so I gave them a break over summer. That's how my parents were with us so I guess that's why I was the same way.
4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?
Not really. I'm not much for canning. Although, every September when the Rome apples come in, we put up about 80 jars of homemade apple butter. Since we don't garden, any fresh produce we get we just eat.
5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?
I am an early riser and I work from home. So I usually get up, have breakfast and plan my day. Then I do my Facebook and blogs before I get dressed and ready for the day. I have to be careful or I would stay in my jammies all day.
