Three Things About Me:

25 Random Facts About Me

The Five Questions I was Asked by Em:

1. What’s your favourite post you’ve ever written?

Thats tough…like asking a mom to choose her favorite child (Thanks for not asking me that!!). That said, I think the first deeply personal post I wrote (How My Son Saved Me) is some of my best work. I went way outside my comfort zone, and it actually felt good!

2. What’s the best thing about blogging?

The collegiality! It’s something I absolutely didn’t expect, but bloggers have a very supportive, helpful, encouraging community. I’ve made so many great friends, and I really enjoy supporting my fellow bloggers any way I can!

3. Who are your top 3 favourite bloggers?

Lisa at Lisa Designs Life

Lauren at Ellduclos

Kieran at Design The Life You Desire

4. If somebody told you they could tell you exactly how your life would turn out, would you want to hear it?

Absolutely not! I truly believe that the beauty in life is the journey. I love the mystery!

5. What are you most proud of? It can be something from your blogging life, non-blogging life or both.

I’m most proud of following my life-long dream to become a trial lawyer. My Dad was a trial lawyer, and I wanted to be just like him. I had the pleasure of practicing with him, and being his Partner. I lost him this year, and I will always treasure the memories we made together in jury trials.
