Thank you Grief to Growth for your nomination!
The Questions I’m answering:
1: What is your favorite blog (mainstream or tiny, either is fine!)?
My Perfect Breakdown. In her real life, she’s incredible private, as dictated by her narration’s, but her writing is so honest and heart felt. She doesn’t hold anything back and reading her words is almost a privilege as you can assume she doesn’t share much outside of her blogging world. She’s also a beautiful writer.
2: If you had to choose one moment in the past year to describe as the most impactful moment of your year – what would it be?
Losing my daughter due to chromosomal abnormalities at 15 weeks gestation. It impacted my life in more ways that I thought possible. Most importantly- it put life in perspective for me and really showed me the people I can count on and those who I can regard as acquaintances.
3: How long have you been blogging?
I have been blogging for almost 9 months, since mid April 2015.
4: How would you best describe your writing style?
How to describe my style? I basically write about whatever is on my mind at the moment and I try to to be as honestly as possible. I’d say I am more of a narrative (venter) writer.
5: What’s your favorite book?
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb or The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls
6: Who is the most influential person in your life?
I’d say my mom. I don’t think I make a decision without thinking ‘what would my mom do or say?’
7: Do you have any weird hobbies or habits?
I twirl my hair constantly. I’ve done so since I was two. I love the feeling of the softness between my fingers. My husband constant nags on me for it. Unfortunately- I’ll probably never stop. I learned from my mom. I’m pretty sure my daughter will be doing the same!
8: Without giving it too much thought, list the first 3 things that pop into your head that you are grateful for!
My friends and family (they are one in the same)
9: What is something you want to learn to do?
Crochet! I taught myself to knit last winter and I slacked after my losses… I thought I’d try to move on to crochet. My husband bought me a lot for Christmas and I am excited to learn!
10: What is your favorite place that you have traveled to/visited?
I have to say Vermont. Each year my husband and friends go on an annual ski trip, and although I am NT a cold weather person, there is something so peaceful about the thick blanket of snow and a roaring fireplace. We’ve also traveled there in the summer with my family and I was never happier to go hiking, pick wild fruit, and swim in the lake. The nature was so calming and serene.
11: You have an afternoon to yourself. No obligations, no chores, no to-do list – how do you spend it?
A long walk and a nap and maybe some guilty pleasure TV.
