fun with proust, thanksgiving edition #1 - mom

i thought i would start with my mom today because moms are the most important people there are.

my mom just turned 50 yesterday. she is such a beautiful, fun, amazing, hard working, smart woman. you would seriously never guess she was 50. in fact, maybe i shouldn't have told you. sorry, mom!

introducing, jill allyn hunter, mother extraordinaire:

1. what is your perfect idea of happiness?
chrystal, ivy, jasi, zachary, levi, and me making snowflakes in our living room, eating pizza, and watching Elf for the fourteenth time!

2. what is your most treasured possession?
although i do not possess them...jasmine, zachary, and ivy

3. what is your greatest fear?
being where i am not wanted and not knowing it.

4. which talent would you most like to have?
anytime i watch a very talented dancer, i feel i missed out. the grace, style, and strength of an accomplished dancer inspires and transports me to a place of beauty and excitement.
{jasmine here: for the record, my mom is a terrific dancer. she did miss out. if she had trained when she was younger, she would have been phenomenal. you would have all known her name.}

5. who or what is the greatest love of your life?
adventure. and not in the african safari way. adventure in terms of how you live each day.

6. what is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
saying things spontaneously without filtering them. you know that place in your head that asks, "should i really say that?" sometimes, i forget to use my filter.

7. what do you value most in your friends?
support, similarities, and differences

8. since it's thanksgiving, what are you grateful for in your life right now?
may sound corny, but good health.

and here is my mom's favorite photo of herself. this one cracks me up and is not what i was expecting when i asked her to send me her favorite photo:

and here's one of my favorite photos of my mom:


  1. oh wow, your mom rules! i love her answers, you can tell she has all the wisdom of her age but the exuberance and youth of a 20-year-old.

  2. aww that is so sweets! isn't it funny how mom's often are taken for granted and forgotten when they probably put up with most of our problems.

  3. Your mom seems like a great person. Down to earth and fun! Plus she looks so great! Way to go!

  4. I love the picture of you and your mom on the skateboard!!

  5. Your mom sounds like a real firecracker of a woman. I like her already. And the photo? So cool.

  6. Your mama seems like a true gem. Don't you love having a mom that makes your world a better, comfier place to be??

    Thanks for sharing :)

  7. have i told you how much i love your mom? seriously. i want to have dinner with her almost as much as i want to have dinner with you.

  8. jasmine, your entire family is so awesome. i love all of these answers. have a wonderful thanksgiving! xoxo
