Q: Tell me about a time when you felt beautiful:

Q: What do you do each day to feel beautiful?
A: When my computer uploads each day the photo booth automatically opens and I take a selfie. No one sees it but I take a moment and pose and smile and tell myself I am physically beautiful, and it helps me feel it no matter what I may look like that day!
Q: Tell me something quirky about yourself:
A: I love to “ugly dance” with my husband. We try to dance as stupid and non sexy as possible and we do this daily in our house..with or without music. I don’t care how dumb I look dancing.. if I’m out in public everyone stands by and laughs at me (or my husband as well if we’re together) but I love it! It’s so exhilarating not to care what you look like while dancing and just feel the music and go for it!
Q: Tell me about a woman you admire:
A: Taylor Swift! This girl has such a strong head on her shoulders. She’s smart, aware, compassionate to others, generous and a fantastic friend to everyone. She doesn’t sell her body she is true to herself and everything about her is admirable. With so many in Hollywood getting caught up in stupid situations she is a truly remarkable girl. We all make mistakes in life but in my eyes, this girl is flawless!!
