Nesting In Pleasant View :: an iblog feature
Today I want to share with you an amazing women whom I've met through blogging. She is super cool, super beautiful, and super sweet. Her faith is strong and I encourage you to visit her blog. You'll be glad you did! I admire her and her writing so much. Thanks for sharing your life on your blog, Sarah. And, thanks for letting us get to know you a little bit more.
1) Your blog title, "Nesting in Pleasant View", why did you choose that title, or what does it mean to you?
After a year of marriage, my husband and I wanted to get out of the city a bit and move to a place where the pace of life was a bit slower. We ended up moving about an hour away to a little town called Pleasant View. Around the same time, my sister had just moved into a new house. We were both "nesting" in a big way. We had decided that to keep up with each other and our house projects, we would start blogs. My husband and I decided that regardless if we stay in this house for the next 50 years, we would always want to be in this town. The name came naturally, knowing that no matter where I was living, I would always be "Nesting in Pleasant View."
2) What are your favorite hobbies and why?
At this stage in my life, my hobbies revolve around my 21 month old daughter, so I would say playing with blocks, reading board books, throwing balls and going down the slide. Seriously though....I enjoy cooking and baking because it gives me a sense of accomplishment. I try new recipes ALL THE TIME. In fact, my husband makes fun of me saying that he has never had the same meal twice. I love the feeling of putting something together and the end result being something yummy! I do also enjoy reading, although it can be hard to find the time these days.
3) What is your favorite thing to cook and why?
Anything new! I love putting a meal together for a family in need. I recently cooked meal for a family with a new baby--it was a 5 course meal by the time I was done and I loved every minute of it!
4) What inspired you the most?
My husband inspires me the most. He is the hardest worker I know--devoted to the Lord, his family, his job and his friends. He is very driven and passionate about all that he does. He is the kind of guy that if he doesn't know how to do something, he won't hire someone, he'll learn how to do it for himself.
5) What would you say your greatest accomplishment is and why?
If you would have asked me this 10 years ago you would have heard, "moving 350 miles away from home, starting a new job, in a new city and living on my own for the first time." It's amazing how this answer changes through the course of one's life. Today, my answer would be my daughters, the two that I got to hold for a few minutes before they went to heaven and the one that is waking up from her nap in the next room. They are the greatest things I could ever do (only with the Lord!).
6) What is your favorite season and why?
I love, love, love SPRING! It reminds me of when my husband and I met. Every year it takes me back to when were dating and fell in love.
7) If you were going on a trip and could only bring one thing, what would it be?
An extra pair of undies.
8) What is your favorite restaurant locally and places you've traveled?
This is a funny question to me because we don't eat out that much at all...when I say that, I mean we eat out only maybe once a month, if that. With that being said, even the hole in the wall Mexican restaurant in our town can be good. One of the best meals I have ever eaten was at Stoney River--it was our 1st wedding anniversary, I ordered the Rainbow Trout with potatoes, spinach souffle, a glass of red wine and a piece of chocolate cake covered in ganache.
