More About Me!!

I'm married to the most amazing man in the world...hands off girls!
I speak French, Japanese, Portuguese, some Spanish, oh yes and English!!
I love dark chocolate, gelato, samosas and california rolls.
Greenbeans and Heirloom tomatoes are my favorite things in my garden.
I am addicted to baby gear, not really buying it (I wish) but checking out the sleekist designs and novel ideas that are out there.
I love doing anything if it means that Stephen is present, he is so much fun.
I love going home to Canada to spend any amount of time with my family, eating dulse and Aero chocolate bars, going to the farmers market for souvlaki and orange juice.
I love to read but don't really have the time so I do a LOT of audiobooks.
I am so grateful for my Mom teaching me how to sew at the age of 8, it has blessed my life.
I am training for my first marathon in September 2008 and surprisingly it's going rather well. Although I am having a hard time beefing up my playlist, any suggestions?
I love to sing and dance with my boys in the kitchen...they act embarassed but secretly they LOVE it!
I love to cook when I have time!
I adore my sisters and my sisters-in-law....they are my best friends and I can't get enough of them.
I love swing dancing and beating my husband at board games and tennis! (wishful thinking)
I love watching my boys play together, they are magical!
I love the family I married into...they are all such remarkable people I am so lucky.
I love to travel and have flight benefits but I rarely get the chance. Someday?

And what gets me through the million loads of laundry, endless dishes, many runny noses to wipe, bellies to tickle and mouths to feed is that I know that at the end of the day, if my husband is not available for quality time and if I'm not working for JetBlue that is....I get to create! Sew, quilt, paint, embroider, knit, draw, design and that balances me out!

Kara,

Using one of your own descriptives: "FABULOUS" blog! What fun with the pictures of the darling retro apron and that stunning Relationships with Orange quilt. Great design.

Did you end up making the spinach smoothie? Do tell--if it turned out, that is (and what a great story if it didn't...).

As you mentioned that you needed to beef up your playlist of songs for marathon training, I wanted to ask you if you've heard of that haunting band, The Swell Season (with the Oscar-winning Irish Glen Hansard and his cute Czech girlfriend, Marketa Irglova)?

There are a few of their songs that I can't get enough of when I walk or run to the garden in the morning, like "Falling Slowly" (there are plenty of their perfomances on UTube, if you haven't already seen them) and "If You Want Me," by Marketa only, is beautiful as well--she has such a piercing voice (a good one for a cool down after a run...).

Also, some other good ones for getting your blood pumping at sunrise would be: "Big Sky" by Rachel Loy, "When I Met the Girl" by Big Kid, and "Life Less Ordinary" by Carbon Leaf.

Now, please list your top ten favorites that you listen to when you run so that I can add a new boost to my playlist. I was just going to look up a few tonight to download for morning jaunts to the garden. See you sometime when you bring by that logo design!

-Emily
