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 went ahead and categorized this one as a Life Lesson – but, it’s not about a guy this time. Instead, I’ll be answering 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 B from Mind.Beauty.Simplicity for this lovely idea, and hopefully you all enjoy it!

Right now, I’m really digging Taylor Jenkins Reid. But Jodi Picoult is always up there.
