Do you believe in second chances?

In concept. There are some things that are dealbreakers from the get go so second chances are out of the question. Other than that, though, I believe we all need a second chance from time to time.

Is your glass half full or half empty?

I think when I was younger I leaned toward half empty but these days I’m definitely half full.

Would you rather someone be honest and hurt your feelings or lie to protect them?

Generally speaking I’d prefer honesty. Sure, sometimes the small lie is simpler — after all, do I really need to know you hated my broccoli — but I’ve found even the small lies have a way of circling back on me. Probably why I’m such a fan of diplomatic honesty.

When have you felt your biggest adrenaline rush?

Usually when I’m outside in the dark with a terrible feeling that something is lurking in the shadows. Yes, I’m that girl.

What are you grateful for?

That my kiddos are safe at home tonight. I’ll write about it but for now? I’m grateful to the depths of my soul for that.
