fun with proust - elise

remember my fun with proust series?

yeah, i had kind of forgotten about it too...

but today, i'm bringing it back with elise who writes a blog called pennyweight. she also has a really cute etsy shop called troubadour vintage. i just found elise's blog a couple weeks ago, and i already love her. besides being incredibly beautiful & stylish, she has a really sweet, genuine quality that i just love. elise is the kind of girl i would love to be friends with in real life...but only if she let me borrow her shoes...just kidding! :) with or without the shoes, elise is a great girl. i really enjoyed learning more about her, and i think you will too.

without further ado, here are elise's responses to the same 7 questions:

1. what is your idea of perfect happiness?
The hubs and I have recently started a weekly tradition called "Music Night." We pile a bunch of pillows onto our living room floor and switch off picking the record for that night. We try to listen to new, or new-to-us, albums that we haven't listened to before... then discuss it afterwards (music nerd alert!).

2. what is your most treasured possession?
My 1940s vintage wedding ring. I am completely in love with it and have to give props to the Mr. for picking it out all by himself!

3. what is your greatest fear?
One of my greatest fears is getting old. Not getting older, I can embrace that... but old. The thought of losing the dear people around me and not being able to do so many of the things I enjoy today makes me so sad.

4. which talent would you most like to have?
I've always dreamed of being able to sew whatever my heart desires... I hope one day this will be true, but I'm in some serious need of some sewing lessons!

5. what or who is the greatest love of your life?
My absolutely adorable hubs - Travis, of course!

6. what is the trait you most deplore in yourself?
I oftentimes try to do too many things at once, making myself so completely overwhelmed that I end up quitting. Instead of getting one thing done at a time, I'm barely getting anything done!

7. what do you value most in your friends?
Candor, love and generosity. My friends continually blow me away with their generosity to others and push me to be a better person. I am so grateful!
