Since that’s a little dry and formal, I’ll also add a few “favourite things” just to liven things up a bit:
Favourite books – The Winter Sea by Susanna Kearsley, Redeeming Love and The Scarlet Thread by Francine Rivers, The Novelist by Angela Hunt, and Horton Hatches an Egg by Dr. Seuss (yes, really – have you read that book??? It gets me every time!)
Favourite Authors – Oddly enough, Susanna Kearsley, Francine Rivers, Angela Hunt, amd Kristen Heitzmann
Favourite Movies – Anything with Jimmy Stewart, the greatest actor of all time, but especially Harvey and It’s a Wonderful Life. Oh and Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Made for Each Other, and The Shop Around the Corner, and … I also love Roman Holiday, An Affair to Remember, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium (which one of these is not like the other ones …), Nanny McPhee, Enchanted, Tangled (yep, three young kids – can you tell?) Shakespeare in Love, Pride and Prejudice of course, short and long version, although the long is better, Sense and Sensibility … and lots more, I’m a bit of a movie-phile (is that a thing?)
Favourite Pastimes: Reading (of course), Writing, (naturally), playing games, especially euchre (a bit over-competitive though, so have to watch myself), playing baseball, watching hockey and baseball (Go Leafs and Jays!!), doing anything with my family, immediate and extended.
Favourite Foods: Greek anything, especially chicken souvlaki with tzaztki!!! Chocolate, Smartfood, lasagna, pizza, and more chocolate.
