What’s your favorite quote?

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly... who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who have never known neither victory nor defeat." –Theodore Roosevelt


What was your favorite pet?

Henry is a fifteen pound, mixed-breed, ridiculously happy, incredibly loving, seriously funny dog. I never knew that getting up in the morning was such a cause for celebration. But, according to Henry it is – every day. Walks are joyous. Treats are miraculous. And falling asleep on my lap is about as good as it gets. He brings me much happiness and reminds me daily to find the joy in everything.
