What is something you never go a day without?
Coffee. Its happened before, but its not good
“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.” – Norman Schwarzkopf
Current Personal Dream Design:
I love my kitchen (we renovated in 2012) – it has stained cabinets (cappuccino stain on maple);
If I were building a new home, I would tend toward a mix of walnut and cream/off-white colours
Happy this fad is over:
Stained maple, cherry, and early American stained oak were very popular when I was actively designing, so now I like seeing different options
Reading – 5 books on the go at a time - novels, leadership books, missionary stories; gardening
Chicken dinner – old-fashioned; vegetables, garden salad, baked potatoes, chicken gravy; strawberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert!
