In the #Hotseat: Mads from Maybe Forever by Kim Golden @kimigm #ColorofLoveHop #Interracial #Giveaway

Hello readers. Today we're excited to have Mads Ramussen from Maybe Forever by Kim Golden in the Hot Seat for #ColorofLove2017 celebration.

You're welcome to our blog, Mads. Thank you for hanging out with us today. We look forward to delving into your mind and finding out more about you. So let's get started.

What is your idea of perfect happiness?
A cozy evening at home with Laney and the kids. That’s all I need. We have this word in Danish—“hygge”—which is pretty much coziness. I never cared about it before, but now when I have a family, it’s what I always want.

What is your current state of mind?
Pensive. There are a lot of things going on, things that need sorting out and I don’t always have the right answers for all the questions. If you ask me tomorrow, maybe I will say happy. I’m happy now, I mean. But pensive too.

What is your most treasured possession?
My tools. I work with my hands, designing and making furniture. And my tools are my livelihood.

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
My wife, Laney, and my daughters. They are the greatest things that ever happened to me. I can’t imagine my life without them.

What is your greatest fear?
My father lost his marriage to my mother because of his addiction problems. He lost his relationship with me because of it as well. It took twenty years for us to find our way back to a somewhat normal father-son relationship. I would never want to lose the love and trust my daughters have in me. I hate the idea of ever having a life without them.

What is the quality you most like in a man/woman?
Wow…yeah, that’s a hard question because it depends on the person. But with Laney…what I liked most about her was how she never assumed anything. And that she was so willing to take a chance on life with me. She didn’t know if we’d be able to make a go of it, but she was ready to take a chance.

What is the trait you most deplore in others?
Arrogance. I have no patience for arrogant people. I don’t understand how they can go through life as they do.

On what occasions do you lie?
I hate lying. I always think telling the truth is better than a lie. But…if I didn’t want to hurt someone I loved, if I knew the truth would only make things worse, then maybe I would lie. But I think the truth is always better than a lie.

Which is your favorite word or phrase?
Øl (beer). No, just kidding. J My favorite word is love. I’m always telling Laney that I love her…and we say “I love you” like this in Danish: Jeg elsker dig.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

Hmm. Maybe I would straighten my nose. It’s been broken twice, but I think my wife would hate that. She says she loves my nose as it is.

Thank you so much to Kim for indulging us. You can find out more about Mads and Laney in Maybe Forever. Here are the details:

Is the honeymoon over…?
Now married with two children, Laney and Mads are finding their life together isn’t as simple as it used to be. While Laney struggles with motherhood, Mads is so focused on chasing success that he loses sight of promises he’s made.

Better apart…?
When frustration gets the better of her, Laney takes the kids and goes to the US, hoping to find solace with her aunt Cecily, a former school teacher who now teaches yoga and meditation in Florida.

Can Laney and Mads find their way back to one another...or is it too late?
