VH: At what age were you the happiest? What triggered such joy?
AM: I'd have to say the age I'm at right now, 34. I have a wonderful husband, two great kiddos, a book published and another one on the way. What more could a girl ask for? Well, other than more chocolate in her life :0)
VH: If you could go back in time to when you were seven years old, what wisdom or advice would you pass on to yourself?
AM: Don't follow the crowd just because it's easier, be yourself. There's nothing more important than being an individual.
VH: What is the number one lie you tell yourself? How is that working out?
AM: That cookies aren't that bad for you as long as you do sit ups later. It's not working out so well, especially since I continually forget to do the sit ups! *slides a plate of Oreos over* Care for a bite, Van?
VH: Yes, please! Well, it was short and sweet especially with with Oreos. Thank you Amy.
