Talk it out or keep it to yourself?
I tend to do a bit of both but talking it out is the healthier option
Karaoke - first to sing, last to sing or absolutely-no-way-not-ever?
I am usually in the first group of singers ~ it’s all about the music
1. One beauty product or routine that you would recommend or can't live without?
I take my makeup off every single night ~ wish I had of started this when I was in my 20’s. Moisturize each and every day ~ my fav is Victoria’s Secret Hand & Body Cream in Pear Glace
2. One book you would recommend to anyone or that you love and often return to?
I so enjoyed reading Water for Elephants and would recommend it to anyone
3. One item that you would take to a desert island (can't be a person!)?
My MP3 player or an iPad with endless battery life!
4. One life-changing moment?
This is a sad one but it would be the day I lost my Dad. It was the first time that I truly felt such a deep loss and having that hole in my heart was huge and changed my life and how I see some things
5. One movie that makes you cry every time?
Dumbo makes me cry and so does Armageddon ~ yup and action packed movie and I was a slobbering idiot!
6. Who would play the handsome hero in the movie of your life?
Richard Gere ~ I could watch him read the phone book

Well since we started Grade 1 together it would have to be Robyn & Tracey ~ we have been friends for 41 years ~ wow I am old!
8. Your favourite book/movie/song?
I have some favourite authors but not one book that I would call my fav.
Pretty Woman has always been on my fav movie list along with St. Elmo’s Fire and Shawshank Redemption.
There are so many songs that speak to me ~ I Hope You Dance by LeeAnn Womack ~ Crazy for You by Madonna and Switchin to Glide by the Kings are on my playlist.
9. Three dream cities you have yet to visit?
London (because of a special girl), Nashville (for my love of country music) and Las Vegas (it is a place that Trev & I want to experience together)
10. Three things still on your bucket list?
Travel, travel, travel and see as much as I can see
11. School days - happy or sad, good or bad memories?
I had lots of friends and had great times so all in all very happy memories
12. What - or who - always makes you feel better on those more challenging days?
I turn to my blog list when I need a chuckle or want to feel inspired
13. Recommend a blog to us?
Farmgirl Paints ~ Becky is such a beautiful person inside and out. I love her honesty, her photography and her faith. It is one of my must reads.
(I read Becky's blog too Lori and love it, it's a great read. I really like Becky, she is wonderfully honest.)
14. Happier now than you were at 20....honestly?!
I am wiser and more content with myself now so I would have to say that I am happier now. I had a blast in my 20’s ~ did some stupid things but I lived through them.
Please describe yourself in ONE WORD ONLY :)
Loyal (kind of makes me sound like a dog!)
And finally, what is the one thing you know for sure?
I know that girlfriends are truly the best treasures in the world.
Whether they have been by your side for years and years or loving you from afar.
No one can tell you like it is or pick you up and dust you off like a girlfriend can.
We are all sisters in our own special way.
Lori is from Canada and writes the blog Wildflowers ....
we've known each other for over 10 years now and - thankfully for me - she is, quite simply, part of my every day XX
