I love the book, Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka. It was a lifesaver. If you have a Nora, you MUST read it.
I really love Jesus, but really, REALLY hate that people assume that means something political.
I love my family and the fact that my siblings are two of my very best friends.
I love that I am still great friends with people I met in kindergarten. I hate that we can't get together more.
I love to write and read. I love photography and wish I had a better eye for landscape pictures.
I love traveling and learning about other people and places. I loved learning Spanish and the doors it opened personally and professionally.
I love Fortaleza, Brazil and the amazing organization, The Channel. I loved working there and hate that I can't do more.
I love St. Olaf College, but hate that it will probably be too expensive for my kids to attend.
I love dance. I love to do it and I love to watch it.
I love to bake, and wish I loved to cook.
I love dark, dark chocolate. And tea with cream. And cheese. And coffee from our home-roasted beans.
I love living in cities and way out in the country. I hate living in suburbs.
I love the BBC and PBS. I love the fact that we only get 4 channels and that three of them are PBS channels in HD. I seriously love Downton Abbey and Sherlock.
I love music with meaning.
I loved my time living in Maryland. I hate that I am no longer living by the amazing people I met there.
I hate overhead lights, loud chewing, being cold, touching fish and money.
I hate hypocrisy and really hate that no matter how hard I try, I am still a hypocrite.
I love that I now have an excuse to be creative.
