We married in 2002 in a traditional church wedding at my regular church. So that makes it 10 years...nearly 11 years!

2. Where did you meet your husband?

I don't really want to admit this...but it was on the dance floor at our local pub.

3. If you could take a dream vacation anywhere, where would you go?

I think that my answer to this has to be Tasmania. It looks so beautiful down there, just breathtaking. I would love to explore all I could about that beautiful land.

4.If you could choose between being near the mountains or the ocean, which would you choose?

Definitely the mountains! Big, beautiful mountains to explore and gaze at.

My favourite holiday was walking in the Welsh Snowdonian mountains. My Mum took us there on a walking holiday and it was breathtaking and beautiful.

6. What is your favourite kind of music?

I love most kinds of music without having any favourites. I just love music. I love music that honours and praises God. I love music that is inspiring and relaxing. I love music that I can dance too. I love music that is fun.

7. What is your favourite movie?

Whoops! Doubled up! Anne of Green Gables. I just thought Anne was wonderful and wanted to be just like her. She really felt life and took it all in. She wore her heart on her sleeve!

8. What colour is your living room?

Our living room is painted beige.

Not at the moment.

10. Do you put coloured lights or white lights on your christmas tree?

I definitely prefer coloured lights. I love everything about Christmas!
