1)Excluding family members, who inspires you?

I am inspired by people who live life with courage, passion and creativity. People who express their uniqueness and essence freely and who love deep-heartedly.

I don’t feel guilty about anything that gives me pleasure, I just simply enjoy pleasure.

3)If you were to write a book, who is one person you would want to list in the acknowledgements and what would you say?

I am creating a book and already have a list of acknowledgements that could be its own novel.. one person is my dear friend Paula (when I say Paula, I also mean Michael and the kids too)… There really are not words that adequately express my gratitude, so I would say thank you for making me part of your family, trusting and believing in me, for the gracious and the generous way you supported me while I found my footing, and simply for being you. I love you all dearly.

4)What is your favorite sandwich?

Avocado, bacon, cheese is pretty good.

I am quite proud of the first business I created, it was an interior design company called Urban Remix. I had never studied or done any interior design before so it was very fulfilling and satisfying that I was able to do it quite well and that people liked my work.

9)If you could spend the day with any fictional character, who would you choose and why?

I don’t know… maybe tinker bell?

10)What is the best meal you ever ate?

I have had so many incredible meals there is no way I could possibly narrow it down to one.

Tuesday 10 – Lesley Carter, Bucket List Publications

Tuesday

There are a lot of bloggers out there.  There are a lot of really good bloggers out there….. one of my favorites is Lesley Carter, author of Bucket List Publications.

When I first started paying attention to blogs, one of the first that captured my attention was Bucket List, I am still inspired by the blog every time I see a new post.

I am so in awe of Lesley for finding a way to make her dreams come true and get paid for it, I think that is one of the most valuable things one can find in life and I respect her for making that happen for herself.

Lesley’s blog continuously makes me want to add to my own Bucket List and expands my dreams for life.  I encourage you to check out the site and let the passions of a dreamer capture you as well.

Thank you Lesley for taking part in the Tuesday 10 and thank you for the continued inspiration!
