Civetta Questionnaire with Elissa of Ebb & Flow

Today’s questionnaire is with the crazy talented and sweet as can be Elissa of Ebb & Flow. She is a graphic designer and her blog never fails to inspire.  She’s also getting married soon, and I can’t wait to see how her talents translate to her wedding.  After you read her questionnaire, please go check out her blog! Thank you Elissa!

WHAT IS YOUR CURRENT STATE OF MIND?

Optimistic and thankful. The new year has a tendency to make you feel that way and 2013 is shaping up to be pretty great, the highlight of which will be my wedding in September.

 

WHAT IS YOUR GREATEST FEAR?

I’m find squirrels pretty frightening on the daily but overall I’d say that losing my independence is my greatest fear. The thought of becoming a burden for my family and friends terrifies me.

 

WHO ARE YOUR REAL-LIFE HEROES?

That’s easy, my mom. She’s pretty swell (understatement of the century).

 

WHAT DO YOU LOVE?

I love my Red Head, family, friends, traveling, biking, dirty rap music, antique shopping, a good book, attempting to decorate our home, hammocks, swimming, Oreos and baking.

 

WHAT IS YOUR MOST TREASURED POSSESSION?

My engagement ring. If my house was on fire, though I’d definitely be sure to grab my lap top and photo albums as well.

WHAT ARE YOUR CURRENT OBSESSIONS?

Anything gold, especially the Kate Spade Charm Heels. Elbow patches. All things wedding related (and the overwhelming desire to register already!).

 

WHAT IS THE QUALITY YOU MOST ADMIRE IN ANOTHER PERSON?

A sense of humor, honesty and loyalty. Those three qualities are in a tie at the top of my list.

 

WHAT IS IT YOU MOST DISLIKE?

I dislike people who feel the need to put you down. Any good friend, or person, will do their best to make you your best self. It’s hard to sum up in one word, but you know the type.

 

WHAT DO YOU VALUE MOST IN YOUR FRIENDS?

A candid sense of humor and imagination, thoughtfulness and loyalty.

 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE NAMES?

I have a strict “no telling names of your future children” philosophy but I think the name Kennedy is pretty.

 

WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?

Male crush: Justin Timberlake, because I’m 13 years old.

Female crush: Meryl Streep. She’s blunt, hilarious, so classy and, as they say in Modern Family, she “could play Batman and be the right choice, she is perfection.”

 

WHAT’S YOUR DREAM CAR?

I know very little about the car world but I think I would look nice driving a black Range Rover. Plus, then I’d fit in with the Kardashian family, always a bonus (*sarcasm*).

 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE COCKTAIL?

Vodka gimlet. Wine, any color. Or a cranberry vodka if I’m reliving my college days.

 

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO OR FAVORITE QUOTES?

I love classic quotes but one recent quote that really resonated with me was Conan O’Brien’s final monologue. You all know it: “All I ask of you is one thing: please don’t be cynical. I hate cynicism — it’s my least favorite quality and it doesn’t lead anywhere. Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen. ”

Jessica Clare

Preschool teacher, writer, trouble maker.

LIVES: Seattle. By way of Santa Fe, San Francisco, and NYC.
LOVES: John
DAYDREAMS:Strong coffee. Gourmet magazine. Stinky cheese. Date night with new strappy heels. Green chile. Going back to India. Unabashed displays of love. Vegetable gardens. Clean sheets. Unruly stacks of books. Breaking Bad marathons. Writing like Joan Didion ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and Joseph Stroud. Cookbooks. French 75s. Sequins with jeans. Leaving love notes.
BELIEVES: “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation, and a foundation for inner security.” Albert Einstein “The important thing is not to think much but to love much and so do that which best stirs you to love.” St. Teresa of Avila “People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances without own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.” Joseph Campbell
