A few weeks ago, I signed up to participate in a mug swap put on by Kallie @ But First, Coffee because I have a bit of a mug obsession and thought it would be fun! I got partnered with the lovely Rebecca from XOXO, Rebecca Mae and we had fun getting to know each other, then the even more fun part of picking out a mug for the other! I really love these little swaps because not only do you get a fun little gift, but it’s also a great way to meet new bloggers.
Check out this adorable mug Rebecca got me, after we bonded over being pet parents! It’s just so cute!
Another blogger I follow, Lisa from Ameliorer la Vie, also participated in the mug swap and she and her partner ended up interviewing each other. Rebecca and I both loved this idea so we decided to piggyback and join in the fun! So visit Rebecca’s blog to see my answers, and check out Rebecca’s answers below:
What piece of blogging advice do you have for other bloggers?
Be yourself! Your blog is your little corner of the internet. Take advantage of the space to write freely!
What are some of the places that you’ve lived at in your lifetime?
I’m so boring! I’ve lived just outside of Chicago and in eastern NC…that’s all. I’d love to move to Cali but who knows where life will take us!
What are some of your favorite quotes?
I’m a philosophy major so this quote appeals to me on so many levels:
“In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer. and that makes me happy. For it says that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there’s something stronger –something better, pushing right back.” — Albert Camus
This quote has comforted me many times and will always remain a favorite of mine:
“Not all those who wander are lost…” — J.R.R. Tolkien
Describe one of your biggest accomplishments.
I’m so proud of the life my husband and I have built together. We got married at 19 and constantly had people tell us that we were destined to fail. We have a home that we love, an amazing group of loved ones and a crazy furbaby who completes our little family. I just love our life!
What do you love the most about your husband?
My husband knows me better than I know myself. Beginning to end, a to z, inside and out, he gets me. And I’m so blessed to call him not only my husband, but my best friend too.
Thanks so much for being a great partner in the mug swap, Rebecca, and for answering these questions!!
