We asked: If you were a pasta shape, what shape would you be and why?
Farfalle (also known as bow tie). It looks cute but is functional since it holds sauce well... my Italian grandmother would tell you that!
We asked: How do you take care of yourself?
Working at the barn where we board my daughter's horse is truly my reset. I love every time of day there, especially the pre-dawn hours when it's just me and 9 horses to feed, turn out, and clean. The sounds, the smells, the pace...every single thing about it feeds my soul.
We asked: What is the best piece of advice you've ever been given?
My mom was wise and taught me many things, but the one phrase that resonates with me deeply and that I remind myself of often is, "This too shall pass." It applies to life's small frustrations as well as some of the deepest despairs...you can endure and persevere.
