3. What is your best quality?

I believe that my best quality is my caring and nurturing nature. I love with a passion.

4. What is your worst habit or trait?

My worst habit must be procrastination. I am trying to improve! Worst trait is being overly sensitive. That trait can be good sometimes, though!

5. How do you cope when you feel stressed or down?

My best way of de-stressing is writing it out. I write until I feel better. When I feel down, I talk it out with understanding people in my life including family, friends and of course, my sweet husband.

I love music. I am a fan of many different genres of music including rock, pop, blues, instrumental, and easy listening, but Led Zeppelin was, is and always will be my favorite band!

7. How long have you been blogging and what have you achieved since then?

This is my first blog. I started it in April of 2014. Since then, I have 124 people following it. I am excited about that. Also, blogging has helped me to spend more time doing what I love, writing poetry.

8. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live? Or would you stay where you are now?

There are many places which I desire to visit, especially Italy, but, I plan to stay residing here in Texas

I have several favorite writers including Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Sylvia Plath, Robert Frost and
Pablo Neruda.

10. Do you speak any languages other than English? If not, which language would you like to learn?

I do not currently speak any languages besides English. I have always wanted to learn French. It is a
beautiful language. My husband speaks a little French.
