Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?
In five years I hope to be a mom of two, working on my third book.
What do you hope to get out of blogging?
I want my words to inspire other people. A few people have reached out to me and told me that I inspire them to write and discuss tough subjects. That means everything to me.
Who is your favorite celebrity and why?
My favorite celebrity is Will Smith because he is funny, hard working, and he doesn’t get caught up in Hollywood drama. I also love how inspirational he has been on his social media. His words are motivational and his work ethic is so very rare.
Who is your best supporter?
My best supporter is my husband. He just gets me.
After a long stressful day, how do you relax?
Wine, lots of wine. And my writing.
What is your spirit animal and why?
I’d have to say that my spirit animal is an Elephant. They represent strength and their daughters never leave them.
What advice would you give to new bloggers?
Don’t be afraid to put yourself out there. Your words could change someone’s life or inspire them to make bold moves. There will be days when you wonder if any one is listening or if your words are making an impact. Believe me, they are. If you feel like you are in a writing slump, take a break, but don’t give up.
It’s fall, what is your favorite thing about it?
Oh my god! Everything!!! Cider everything, pumpkin everything, the colors, the crisp air, the clothes, and of course Halloween!! Everything! Everything! Everything!!
What are your top 3 apps for blogging?
I’m still learning a lot about the blogging world but the ones I’ve discovered so far are Cava, Hootsuite, and Quotes Creater.
If you could donate to a charity, which one would you?
Every year I raise money for an African Elephant protection organization called Save The Elephants, so definitely that one.
