11 Questions


I’m so excited to be sponsoring one of my favorite blogs, Pen and Peplum this month and I’m even more excited that Miranti was lovely enough to tag me in 11 Questions.  I loved reading the answers to her questions and I hope both she and you feel like you know me a little better after reading the answers to mine!

1. Me in a nutshell… I struggle with this every time I rewrite my Twitter bio, but for now I think I really am best described as “A lawyer who blogs. Lover of good books, great blogs, heavy stationery, Maryland, DC and Connecticut.”

2. What’s one talent you wish you had?  The ability to dance.  Some folks know me as “Rhythmless Nation”!

3. What’s the last thing you bought? These file folders. Cute office supplies are my weakness and between the color and motivational quotes, I couldn’t pass them up!

4. Three things that make a person irresistibleCharm, wit and a killer smile.

5. What did you have for breakfast this morning? A tall, skinny hazelnut latte from Starbucks.

6. Next trip you’re going to take? Home to see the family, and then hopefully back to London!

7. Which fictional character do you relate most to? Grace Adler from Will and Grace

8. What’s been the highlight of your day? Starting it off with a phone call from one of my best friends.

9. People are often surprised to find out that I... have milked a cow.

10. Favourite smell?  This one is tough! My mom loves to layer perfumes and certain scents always make me think “Mommy would love this.” It’s not a specific smell but anything that reminds me of home and of her makes me happy.

11. A life well lived is… one that leaves a legacy. (cue Beyonce’s “I Was Here”)

I’m tagging: Latanya – MelindaJenny – ErinKyle – Arelis – Sarah – Maria – NatashaCarrieAngela

And here are my 11 questions for you:

1. What makes you happy?

2. Why do you blog?

3. What’s the last book you read?

4. Who is your dream lunch date?

5. What would your 15 year old self say if he or she could see your life now?

6. Who or what inspires you?

7. What is one thing in your life you hope will be different one year from now?

8. What song ALWAYS makes you want to dance?

9. What do you think is the key to success?

10. What advice are you glad you never took?

11. What’s your favorite quote?

I hope you’ll all give us this peek into the person behind the posts – can’t wait to read your responses! :)

  1. Aw yay! I’m so thrilled you did this. It was nice getting to know you a little better :) This is probably a silly question but… what’s heavy stationery?

  2. I have to say it’s hard to get anything right in that tiny little Twitter bio. I would love to milk a cow! I live near dairy farms and I love to pet the cows but I’ve never actually milked one. I feel bad though knowing that most of the time they are hooked to those machines. I love Grace Adler, it’s making me wonder more about your personality.

  5. Thanks! I think you’ll like them- they’re all great!

  6. I just read your response and loved it- and thanks re: the smell answer :)

  7. Lol like Grace I’m a bit neurotic and quirky- I’ll try to share more of my personality on the blog, I can be a bit shy sometimes!

  8. I’m happy you tagged me! And by heavy stationery I just mean paper with a good weight to it like the sort you would letterpress or engrave or pretty cardstock. There’s just something about the feel of it in the hand that thrills me.

  9. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different website and thought I might check
    things out. I like what I see so now i’m following you. Look
    forward to going over your web page for a second time.
