I found this fun little quiz that a couple blog friends have shared and I thought it would be the perfect thing to do on my birthday. This originally stemmed from Vogue’s 73 questions game that they were doing with celebrities.


  1. What are you most excited about these days?  Weekends, sunshiny mornings, and getting out my DSLR.
  2.  Favorite holiday? Christmas without a doubt! 
  3. Favorite season? Fall. Wearing layers and cheering on my tigers makes for the best time of the year.
  4. Recent hobby?  Reading, bible journaling, a workout schedule and the blog are all keeping me busy these days.
  5. If you could switch lives with someone for a day, who would it be? Chloe, my dog. Napping all day and then having your head scratched literally sounds like the dream.
  6. If you could have coffee with someone from the past, who would it be? C.S Lewis.

  9. What’s the weirdest word in the English language? Perfect…as in to make something better. WHY IS THIS SPELLED THE SAME AS PERFECT. Or am I wrong? I can’t even explain it to the internet so that’s how you know you’re losing.
