This week’s word is passionate. Here are a few things I’m passionate about…

  1. My husband, Barry. We have been married a little over five years now, and time sure does fly. I can’t wait for what the future holds!

  2. My family and friends. Family is, and has always been, very important to me. I love family traditions and getting together for holidays. I don’t have a huge number of friends, I’m more of a ‘choose your friends wisely’ type. The friendships I do keep often feel more like family. Having people who are important in your life is more valuable than a big house, fancy car, or any other riches.

  3. My dogs. Anyone who has read my blog for a hot minute knows I love my dogs very much. I know they’re not for everyone, but for me life is better with dogs. There’s nothing like a wagging tail greeting you at the door like you just made their day…. and that greeting being just as enthusiastic whether you’ve been done 3 days or 3 minutes.

  4. My Hokies!!! Another thing you probably already know about me. I went to school at Virginia Tech and I love rooting on my Hokies with gusto, especially in football.

  5. The mountains. I have lived in Virginia all my life, but not always in the mountains. I fell in love with them when I started going to school at Tech, and if I’m lucky I’ll always get to live in/near them.

  6. Running! I started running in 2007, during my freshman year of college, through Team in Training and subsequently ran my first race – the Country Music Half Marathon. I was pretty much hooked after that and, aside from a hiatus in 2010, I have been running consistently since then.

  1. Looks like you hit them all. The only thing I will add is my vehicles. I am passionate about the machines I drive, whether they have two, four or multiple wheels!

    But my girls come first.


  2. I’m not sure I could really be friends with someone who doesn’t love animals. They are the loves of my life (sorry, hubby — he’d probably be the first one to tell you it’s true).

    I’m actually happy that we’ve lived in several different states. I enjoy exploring new places.

    1. Same here!

      I would like to have different experiences in different areas (maybe just through extended travels), but I also really love the state I live in ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. I have to admit, I am pretty fond of your dogs, too. Just from their pictures. They look like characters!

    And I completely understand about the mountains — they are remarkable. I went to college with a girl from Pearisburg and she really disliked not being able to see her mountains every day.
