What is your favorite holiday?
My favorite footwear is flip-flops. I admit that I admire all those really cute stilettos, just not enough to bear wearing them all day myself.
My favorite season is Autumn. It may be odd, but Autumn, not Spring, has always seemed like more of a time of new beginnings to me. Maybe that's because when a new school year always started growing up. I love the relief from the heat that it brings, I love the leaves changing colors, and I love that we go right from the Halloween season into Thanksgiving, and then into Christmas, although I guess that last one in winter.
I know that this is the most common anwer, but I love Christmas. I love the parties, and the planning for gifts, and how refocused everything seems to be.

Before I had my son, I loved to go to Krav Maga classes. Krav Maga is a type of self-defense, and it's also quite a work-out. I found it invigorating and empowering. I also loved learning about new things, especially related to healthcare. I know I'm kind of a nerd, but before I had my son I always did full-time work and full-time school. I've never had a desk job either; I guess I'm too antsy or something to sit still that long, and I love to learn new things. If college were free, I would be a perpetual student.
I don't do Krav Maga anymore. I stopped when I got pregnant with my older DS because the combat they do wouldn't be safe. By the time I would've been able to go back, my instructor had moved back to Texas, and the next closest instructor is over an hour away.
I do still love to learn, although I have graduated from college and don't plan on going back until my kids are all older.
A new interest that I have found is cooking, specifically healthy cooking. I love finding delicious recipes that pack a punch in the nutrition department as well.
These are good questions, guys, thanks!
