Questions from Simply Sweet Mama
1.) What is your biggest blogging goal?
Truth be told, I was inspired to start blogging as a way to chronicle and reflect on my own personal experiences with motherhood and the everlasting impact that it has had on me. When I thought further on that idea, I also realized just how important our role (as mothers) is in the development and well-being of our little-one. This realization kind of turned on a light bulb where I became distinctly aware that my motherhood and my work were in fact connected, and that everything I did or didn't do going forward would have a direct impact on my daughter. And so, I started this blog with the hope of bridging that connection for other mamas out there. My goal is simply to provide reflective insight, knowledge, tips, and suggestions so that other mamas know that they are not alone and that together, we can truly make a collective difference not only in each other's lives but most importantly in the lives of our children.
2.) Describe your life in 3 words?
Oh boy 3 words? This is an incredibly hard task, considering that I am indeed an over writer! But 3 words, lets see...Glass Half Full.
3.) If you can only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Easy. Whole grain waffles with sunflower seed butter and honey with a side of scrambled eggs.
4.) What is your favorite color?
5.) What is one thing you would want to change about yourself?
My hair. I wish it were straight.
6.) You have 3 wishes, what are they?
* To buy my dream home.

7.) If you can travel to one place for free, all expenses paid, where would it be?
8.) What do you like to spend your time doing?
Well lately? Blogging.
9.) Who do you look up to and why?
I look up to all those mamas who have somehow managed to find the whole work, mommying, life balance. Some days I feel incredibly overwhelmed, even having the help and support from my mom, who does so much for us on a daily basis. And who without, I would be so lost. And so I truly do look up to those moms who have made it work, with and without that support. I admire your strength and devotion.
