Hello again friends! I’m taking a slight detour from my usual repertoire here, so today’s blog post is going to be a tad different. I’ll be answering the Blogger’s edition of Vogue’s 73 Questions so that you can get to know me a little better.

Full disclosure – I actually didn’t have a topic planned for this week (I do want to do a follow up to the last personal story about Max, but… I need more time for that one), so when a fellow blogger on Twitter suggested that I do this, I jumped on it.

So, thank you to Bee from Mind.Beauty.Simplicity for this lovely idea, and hopefully you all enjoy it!

Right now, I’m really digging Taylor Jenkins Reid.

Food wise, I don’t usually restrict myself so anything I’m in the mood for I guess! I love Jalapeno chips though.

    These dating questions are great! I especially love your #56 (but I have no idea who I would be). This would be a fun 2nd or 3rd date idea, just go to a coffee shop and chat for hours!
