Please welcome Rita!
1. What is your favorite thing about the colder weather?
As a northeast gal there is nothing I love more than a big snowstorm. With two young boys my favorite thing in the winter is waking up in the morning and finding out school has been cancelled due to the weather. I get more excited now than when I was a kid!
2. What kind of books do you like to curl up with on a cold day?
If I’m curled up in front of my fireplace on a cold day I want a book that’s going to last. It can be romance, suspense, or even a mystery but it has to be at least three hundred pages. In today’s market that’s not always easy to find. Sometimes that means I pull an old favorite like Judith McNaught off of my bookshelf.
3. What is your favorite holiday food?
Can I say dessert? Seriously, if it’s sweet and festively decorated I’m going to devour it over the holidays. I totally support the tradition of gaining five pounds between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.
4. What is your favorite holiday tradition?
Other than the aforementioned weight gain, I would have to say hanging out with family and friends on Christmas Eve watching It’s a Wonderful Life, eating homemade fudge and nipping at a bottle of Baileys. Hmmm…I guess it’s no surprise why my pants are snug in January.
5. Be honest, how much do you decorate for the holidays?
Too much. Years ago I started a Nutcracker collection. It took on a life of its own when people starting buying them for me as gifts. Now it has reached the point where I have no where to display them all. When you add in the Christmas tree, Nativity scene, snow globes, window candles, musical snowmen, stockings — I’m exhausted just thinking about it!
