Ten Questions on a Tuesday -- Thanks, Sharon!

I was browsing Sharon's blog, Tidings of Comfort and Joy, and I saw her post from last Tuesday with 10 wonderful questions.  So I decided to play along -- a week late, but that's pretty much par for me!  So Here are her questions and my answers! 

1.  What simple pleasure would you miss most if it was no longer a part of your life?
       Reading a good mystery

2.  What was one of your prized possessions as a child or teenager?

       As a child, I had a tiny ceramic dog -- a terrier of sorts, that I had found on a walk with my dad.  I carried it everywhere.  It got broken when my oldest two kids were small, but about a year later, my children found an almost exact duplicate at a flea market!  I still have that one.  (BTW, Sharon wrote that she had a cat named Charley.  So did I!)

3.  Name a book you've read (or a movie you've watched) multiple times.
       Book - The Awakening, by Kate Chopin and Anne's House of Dreams by L.M. Montgomery. (PS, Sharon, I love Legally Blond!) 

4.  What is your current career/vocation?  
       Writer and SEO/Social Marketing Manager

If you could try another one, what would it be?
Set decorator

5.  If you could take a six-month sabbatical, where would you go and what would you want to do/learn/study?
       I would go to Paris with my art supplies, a couple of really good cameras and several blank journals.  I would study French and write and take endless photos and just relax for the first time in years. 

6.  In your opinion, what is the quintessential comfort food?
      Soup.  Hot, creamy, well-seasoned soup on a chilly evening

7.  What was a formative moment or turning point in your life?
       Having children.  I always thought I would just hire a nanny and go back to my career which was just starting.  I was so wrong. As soon as my son was born, I did not want to leave him -- the career was on indefinite and happy hold. 

8.  Do you have any regrets that are particularly difficult to shake?
       Yes.  

9.  If you could be really talented at a skill of your choice, what would it be?
       Singing jazz

10.  If you had to choose one word to describe what you hope your life is like in 10 years, what would it be?
       Content

G'day ~ Isn't motherhood the most rewarding yet challenging role in life? I love it, too.

Have a great day ~
