interview: aimee dolich

my dears, i have a delicious, wonderful, colorful treat for you this morning!
this is going to be my last post for a couple weeks, as my dear fiancé and i are leaving for california tomorrow morning to go get married-- eek! i can't believe it's almost here!

so, i wanted to leave you with a very special post before i go for a little while, and i can't think of a better lady tofit that bill than aimee dolich, of artsyville fame. aimee is one of my very favorite friends in the blog world, and it's a huge honor that she took the time to illustrate her answers to my interview questions, rather than the typical typed-out answers. she's so uber-creative, it just blows my mind.

so, without further chatter from me, here is aimee's wonderfully insightful (and colorful) interview-- i hope you enjoy it! and i will see you back here on august 12th, when i have wedding and honeymoon photographs to share. (and i'll officially have a new name! jessica swift- cool, huh?)

1. Tell us a bit about yourself. (What's your favorite color? What can't you live without? What do you do all day? What's your favorite way to relax? Share whatever random bits you'd like!)

2. What is abundance to you?

3. What are 5 things you are grateful for right now, in this moment?

4. Do you have any tricks for turning a bad mood into a good mood?

5. Do you have any irrational fears/worries that you'd love to let go of?

6. What is one huge, crazy-seeming goal that you dream about accomplishing?

What daily practices do you follow, if any, to stay focused on positivity and abundance in your life? (journaling, meditating, drawing, visualization, reading, etc.)

What is your favorite part of your day?

9. Do you have a favorite quote or author that help you remember to live and think abundantly?

10. Can you share some books or blogs with us that you think Pecannoot readers might love?

*thank YOU, aimee! you are a truly special part of Pecannoot.* :)
