I have the two cutest, bestest kids in the world. I have a huge
crush on my husband.
Yoga keeps me sane.
your nightstand: I have a life-size cutout of Colin Firth
as Mr. Darcy in my bedroom.
in your cup? Melted milk chocolate chips in a mug = heaven!
time of day: My favorite time of day is evening, pre-dinner,
when we crank up the tunes and have a family dance party.
on writing: Writing is the hardest work I've ever done.
polish or natural? Right now my toenails are a dark red,
left over from a pedicure I got with Libba Bray in Miami. (Well,
we had to! We'd both left snow boots weather and were suddenly in
sandals weather, and I won't describe the state of our collective
on stage? I used to do theater, but I can do only one passable
impression: Snow White singing "Someday My Prince Will Come."
going on right now? My four-year-old son is sitting next
to me and he wants me to write down a story he's going to make up:
"Once upon a time there was there was a couch that wanted to
fly, and it couldn't, it didn't have wings, and...and it went to
the wing store and got some wings, and...and...it wanted to fly,
and it flied! The end."
