Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

you've lead a very interesting life.

I love the five things you would do if you were a billionaire. Build a killer wine cellar and buy an island. Perfect!

Amalia T. said...

Welcome back! I hope you got everything done that you needed to!

I will visit you in your villa in Italy when I am at my writer's retreat in Denmark! Or you can visit me! I will have a view!

Stephanie McGee said...

Fun! I'll stop by your villa when I'm staying in my home in London (when I'm a billionaire). We can dream, right?

Stephanie Thornton said...

Wendy- I so need a wine cellar! One of my husband's friends has a big one and it makes me jealous. Very, very jealous!

Amalia- I stayed sane last week which was the goal. Work on RELUCTANT QUEEN? A few pages. And I'll totally come visit you in Denmark!

Stephanie- You can come visit me in the winter and I'll hop over to London to see you in the summer. Italy gets too darn hot in August!

Rayna M. Iyer said...

I would love swapping places with you. Quite an exciting life you have led.

Aubrie said...

Thanks for tagging me!

You have great goals, and I love the idea of buying an island, Mine would be tropical. *sits back and dreams*

Stephanie Thornton said...

Rayna- I don't know how exciting it's been, but it's certainly been fun!

Aubrie- Definitely tropical! That's the only way to go!

It's so much fun to learn more about people! Grapefruit pecan bread intrigues me. I'm with you about the wine cellar and the travel - I've often said to people that if I came into a great deal of money I'd be off traveling. I doubt I could be pried out of Europe and Italy is certainly on the list - ah, Tuscany. Ah, Venice. Ah, the food. Ah, the wine. I could go on, but I'll restrain myself.

Julie Dao said...

It was so much fun to learn more about you! Fresh garden tomatoes sounds heavenly - YUM. And a killer wine cellar? I hope you'll have free tastings for all your blog buddies (nudge nudge) ;)

KarenG said...

You are clearly a person who loves travel! May you get your billion and travel the world with those you love.

Jemi Fraser said...

Love your answers Stephanie - I'd love to travel to those places as well! :)

Paul Greci said...

Welcome back, Stephanie. I hope you get to do a lot of traveling over the next few years!

VR Barkowski said...

Great answers, Stephanie. Loved hearing where were you were five years ago (Going to Egypt and working as a tour director in Alaska? Nice juxtaposition!).

And thank you(?) for tagging me. :)

Just Another Sarah said...

I like those answers! I chose travel, too. I long to see Italy--I studied Latin for about 8 years, and I haven't made it to Rome yet. Isn't that sad?
