Why? What? Where?

My friend Melissa over at Daily Life - Bits & Pieces answered some questions last week and encouraged us to answer them as well. Regardless of how long I have known someone I always learn something new so thought I'd play along.

1. Why did you start blogging? 
I was starting a small business and felt it would be a good way to "be out there". I saw it as a way of showcasing things I created, sharing my everyday life, recipes, adventures, etc. The blog has done nothing for the business but wow, the glorious things that have come from it!

2. What is something this year that you are really looking forward to? 
The Pirate graduating from college on May 9th!!

3. What is your favorite thing to do to unwind? 
Reading a book while in a hammock in warm weather (preferably with a view of water and gentle, warm breezes) In cold weather watching shows with the Chosen One and spending time with family.

4. Photo's say a thousand words so share a photo that means the most to you. Why is that picture important to you? 
I cannot possibly pick one photo that means the most to me  but this one is very special.

5. What quote inspires you the most?  Small acts transform the world.

6. Name a quilting tool you can’t live without & why? 
A ruler for obvious reasons.

7. Where is your favorite vacation spot? 

a tropical island

8. What is your favorite blog? No way I have an answer for that one. My favorite blogs are the blogs written by women that I have to come to feel I know and are my friends.
9. What is your favorite way to work out? 
Bob Harper DVD

10. Where do you like to shop? 
Shop? I don't like to shop

11. What's the best advice you've ever been given? Always remember who you are and Who's you are

12. What is your favorite blog post you've written?
I have quite a few, I really liked the two posts where I answered questions as my 17 year old self then as my grown up self.  The Underwear mystery post still makes me laugh and I enjoyed sharing the mystery of F(B)unny.  The winner may be the letter I wrote to the Beast and SweetGirl on their wedding day.

What's something I don't know about you?


  1. I love to unwind with a book as well....but unlike you I love shopping!!

  2. Oh how glorious to just lie in a hammock and read. Perfect! I don't think I could decide a favourite blog either!

  3. How FUN to see your answers to these questions today! I didn't know that about why you started your blog and I'm glad to know there's someone else out there who doesn't like to shop!

  4. Oh I love posts like this one! Fun answers to read, and I'm with you on #10 - not a shopper! What you and I don't like, my sister makes up for - that girl LOVES to shop!

  5. This has been a fascinating read - with you on the book and shopping and wish I had been to a tropical island!


YOU ROCK! Seriously, I love getting comments, so know that you have put a bit of added sunshine in my day. Thanks so much and I hope your day is glorious!
