What's your favorite children's book?
Goodnight Moon! I read this classic to my little boy, Jimmy (age 3) every night for the first six months of his life. I have it memorized and it reminds me to let everything go at the end of the day & rest.
Who's your favorite Muppet?
Miss Piggy. Her tireless pursuit of her beloved "Kermie" is a great example of perseverance!
What's the best bargain you've ever found at a garage sale or thrift store?
My wedding dress! I bought a fabulous over-the-top couture gown for $200 at a consignment shop in Akron, Ohio.
How did you meet your spouse?
At 4-H Camp! James and I were both 4-H Camp Counselors at different Georgia beach camps: He worked at Jekyll Island 4-H Center and I worked on Tybee Island 4-H Center the summer of 1994. All of the counselors would get together each weekend; he was my summer fling that wouldn’t leave me alone after I returned to UGA. We dated 10 years before I finally agreed to walk down the aisle with him in 2004.
