Relationship to HFC: We’ve been dating now since March of 2019. I think things are getting serious.

How I got into loving the art of the drink: Two words: Lelaneia. Dubay.

Dream car: Mini Cooper Countryman (in white)

5 Favorite Things: Dancing, spending time with my family, my dog, entertaining and cooking a great meal with great conversation (can that be one thing?), and when my body and mind feel fluid and rested.

Ultimate dream: My life has been pretty dreamy so far…but I’d love to own a little cottage by the water and a London townhome and have enough money to enjoy them regularly. And…world peace.

Favorite music genre, band, or performer: This is near impossible, but give me a good crooner any day (Dean Martin, Mel Tormé, Dick Haymes, Edie Gormé, Keely Smith)

Next vacation destination if money were no object: Italy, all the pretty parts

All-time favorite movie: Singin’ in the Rain

Best way to spend a free day: Snooze when you’re sleepy, eat (well) when you’re empty, laugh whenever you can, and catch up on the important things

Favorite Wild Moon flavor: I dig WM Rose for so many reasons, but Sumac and RDR are running very close behind.

What is the closest thing to real magic: That moment when you connect with someone and instantly know there’s a connection. It helps if there is an amazing sunset on the horizon.

 Favorite charity: World Central Kitchen, and any charity that aids women, children, and animals

Are aliens real: Dang…wouldn’t I like to know! I hope so.

Number one thing society needs to change: I yearn for gentility, grace, manners, compassion. Let’s all hunger to know thy neighbor.

If you could have dinner with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be: Gut reaction is Gene Kelly, but I feel a need to be deeper in my response…no sorry. Gene it is.

Favorite vegetable: A tie between Sweet Potato and crisply cooked Haricot Verts

If you could have one superpower, what would it be: I’m a woman. That’s my superpower. (but time travel would be pretty awesome)

Favorite Quote: It’s all good.

What book changed your life: In elementary school: Island of the Blue Dolphins. In high school: Pride and Prejudice. In my 20’s: A Prayer for Owen Meanie. In my 30’s: The Creative Habit by Twyla Tharp. In my 40’s: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. Now?? Any book I can stay awake for.

Ocean or lake: Yes.
