1) It will likely come as no big surprise to you that I am passionate about reading. I read all sorts of stuff and cannot pick a favourite book or a favourite author. I LOVE them all. A correlation to this is that I am passionate about libraries because I am cheap, so I love getting to read all the books for free. And I love participating in the 24 Hour Readathon, and am already looking forward to April :)
3) I am passionate about watching sports of all kinds. From the Blue Jays to our local junior hockey team to watching my youth from church play basketball, I just love cheering people on.

4) I am passionate about traveling. I love to travel. I just like discovering new places. From going to New Zealand for two weeks with Dave to a Southern Road trip with our whole family to long weekends in New York City -- it just all makes me happy!

We're in the planning stages of another big road trip next summer which, if it all goes as planned, will be combining quite a few things I'm passionate about :) I'll fill you in when I can but it probably won't be until the spring sometime.
5) I am passionate about flowers. (And I'm sure you're all falling down in shock! Ha!) One of the things I absolutely loved about this summer is my flower share through our CSA. I loved getting awesome bouquets every week, with unique and beautiful flowers. I felt so showered with love for my birthday when almost everyone surprised me and brought me flowers. I love the flowers in our yard. Flowers just make me happy.
So there are five things I am passionate about. Of course I could list many more like my faith, my kids, my husband, Coke, my friends, blogging, hanging laundry on the line (HA!) -- but I was only supposed to pick five. It's probably a good thing too!
