1. What is your favorite thing about the colder weather?
Actually, Fall is my favorite season. I always loved going back to school (yes, I’m a nerd, I admit it). I love the crisp, cool air that seems to call to me to come out and breathe deep. I love the gorgeous colors of the trees. I love Halloween too. It’s a fun holiday and all the creepy movies I love tend to run in October (and into November). When it’s cool outside, the warm house seems more welcoming than a cool house in summer. It’s a time to curl up with your favorite hot drinks and read, read, read. I absolutely love this time of year!
2. What kind of books do you like to curl up with on a cold day?
I read a variety of fiction and nonfiction, but my favorites are paranormal romance and romantic suspense.
3. What is your favorite holiday food?
My mom’s desserts, any of them. And my daughter’s pumpkin rolls. Yum!
4. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Spending time with family. We’re all so busy we don’t see each other much the rest of the year. That, and all the desserts. Yum!
5. Be honest, how much do you decorate for the holidays?
I’m supposed to decorate?
Seriously, as much as I enjoy looking at all the decorations, I don’t put up many myself. I care more about the little things, the faith the season represents, and being with people I love.
My daughters are grown and doing their own thing, and we do have some religious diversity in our family. What tends to happen is that my husband and I reshape traditions to make our own way of doing things. Then we go to other people’s houses and celebrate their way of doing things. It’s fun and makes for an interesting holiday season.
Recently some of our family has reconnected after being apart for several years. I’m very hopeful this will make the holidays even more special.
Here’s hoping for the best holiday season ever, for all of us!
