1. Why did you start blogging & why have you kept blogging?
My oldest daughter had started a blog a while back and she told me I should do the same. She thought it would be good therapy for me to write about my feelings and experiences.
I’ve almost quit! However, I keep coming back and hitting the keys. It floors me that people actually read my post and hit the “like” button. I had no idea anyone would ever read anything I wrote. I was very surprised at the love and support I began to receive from people I’ll never meet. I never expected that. I was so used to having only one person in my life cheer me on and speak life to me. Ya’ll have no idea how much your kind words and prayers have meant to me. I love you. ❤
2. What is your favorite type of blog post to write?
Hmmm…. I like to write post about my feelings and the men I have loved. I also like to write about my thoughts, my “confessions”, my favorite things, my life and share music. I love music.
3. What are your top 3 favorite blog posts?
4. What are some of your favorite things to do to relax?
I love diffusing essential oils, taking bubble baths, putting on body lotion that is just the right amount of sent without being overwhelming, playing relaxing music, having candlelight all over my house, and well….

Victoria’s Secret Gift cards
6. What are your proudest blogging moments?
Hmmm… getting comments like these:
“I’m in tears. So beautiful!”
“You have the warrior spirit of an angel! Don’t lose sight of that!!”
“So proud of you, Mom! You are a true inspiration to not only myself, but everyone around you. I hope this blog helps you to appreciate your journey and see what an amazing person you are. I love you ❤”
“Dearest Purple Rose, what you have written here today has brought tears to my eyes. For I know there will be a day I will have to share the real me, the whole story, to my daughters(who will want to know.) It is a fear though, to think of having to disappoint them with my failures. Yet, I hope it will help keep them from repeating my mistakes.
Anyway, what I wanted to say to you is that you must be a remarkable woman to have raised a remarkable daughter, who cares to continue to want to know you into her adulthood! I can only pray that I will have that bond with my daughters someday too. I’m sending you the link to my story in the next comment should you want to know more about me. I look forward to following you and your daughter.”

Photography, cooking, listening to music, reading, spending time with my daughters, and spending time discussing spiritual things with my father.
8. Describe your personality in 3 words:
Compassionate, honest and very affectionate.
9. What are your top 3 pet peeves?
Not washing hands after using the restroom
10. What’s something your followers don’t know about you?
I didn’t know what to say for this one, so I asked the man sitting next to me and he said that I am, “One FINE woman!”
I’ll take that! 🙂
Let’s see… I wear a size 5 1/2 in women’s shoes and I have to order most of my shoes/boots online because most of the stores I shop at discriminate against women with feet smaller than a size 6. Not fair!!!
This was fun! Thanks again Stuart. ❤
