Brooke Forry of Claremont Road is a bright + bubbly, lighthearted lady, and her blog reflects that. I discovered her talents via Twitter and later learned about her “day job” as a designer and co-owner of Curious + Co. Creative, whom I chose to work with for my business design. Since then we have gotten to know each other well, and have discovered we have quite a bit in common! I can always count on her writing to brighten my day, and she is a super storyteller. She never hesitates to share personal stories, which I have found both hilarious + inspiring. Here are some fun + random facts about Brooke!
If not yourself, who would you be?
An entertainer. I have always loved the thrill of being onstage, though if you’ve ever heard me sing, you’d know that showbiz was clearly never my calling.
What is your present state of mind?
Your favourite colour and flower.
The color teal makes me blissfully happy, as do ranunculuses (ranunculi?), which my husband bought for me when we first started dating. If I ever find a teal ranunculus, I will die happy.
Your idea of happiness.
72 degrees and sunny with no humidity and no plans to tie me down, people-watching and sharing laughs with my husband over cold beers.
Your idea of misery.
Not being able to find humor in everyday life.
Where would you like to live?
Boston. That city speaks to me.
Your favourite qualities in friends.
Those who realize how important it is to be there for the special moments in a friend’s life, even when it may not be completely convenient for them. And those who can make me laugh so hard that I don’t need to do ab workouts.
Your favourite motto.
Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but doens’t get you anywhere. (Erma Bombeck)
Your biggest flaw.
I’m a worrier.
What gift from nature would you like to have?
The ability to sing beautifully (see first answer).
