If you were a chair? Oh, that’s tough. I’m torn between a Vladimir Kagan sofa and an antique caned armchair, reupholstered in some fabulous, eclectic, big-patterend fabric! 

 

Favorite Extravagance? Wining and Dining!

 

Drink of choice? Depends on the day/my mood! Perhaps some bubbly or a freshly made dark and stormy or even a cold draft amber beer.

 

Can’t live without? Because family is obvious, right…running shoes, sunshine and good music! Apparently I’m surviving without the ocean so that’s been proven wrong 🙂

 

Favorite Place in the World? Oh that’s easy! Portugal! But I have so many places yet to see and also love the Florida Keys so, so much!

 

Special skills or hidden talents? I’m not sure it’s a talent but I love wine tasting. One of my goals is to be a master sommelier.

 

What’s at the top of your bucket list? Achievement-bucket- To become a sommelier; Travel-bucket – Spain with a river cruise through Portugal thrown in!
