Q & A with KarenBeth

karensnow4My dear good friend Andrea from hopeannfaith.com inspired me to do this questionnaire this morning . . . it looks fun and thought I would give it a go this morning as a way to connect with others and with myself.

Begin with a recent photo of self {on left} first snow day in Georgia!

1.What part of the world do you live?

I live in Woodstock Georgia. . . been here for 9 years as my husband’s company moved us here for his work, but I am originally from New Hampshire. Love the south!

2.How long have you been blogging? I have been blogging for about 8 years now, if you really want to know, I have been writing since I was 5 years old, but blogging online for 8 years, writing was built into my soul!

3.To visualize even better what you look like – what color is your hair, your eyes… and how tall are you? I am a short 5’2″, my boys who are much taller always remind me of that! I have natural dark brown hair and have brown eyes!

4.What is your favorite color? Green is my favorite color!

5.What is your favorite kind of music? I love all types of music . . from top 40, to 70’s from the past! I love dance music, and even some Jazz when I want to relax . . . I have a wide range of music taste!

6.What is your favorite food or kind of food? My Favorite food is Steak and Potato with a salad! I am not much of a risk taker with trying new foods, but my all time favorite is Beef Roast with Mash Potatoes .. good northern meal!

7.What is your favorite drink? I LOVE COFFEE, but I stopped drinking it a while ago! Red Bull (although not good for me) is my 2nd favorite.

8.What is your favorite place you’ve ever traveled? And where would you like to go that you haven’t yet? Well, I don’t travel much, but my favorite place that I have traveled to was New York City with my husband on his business trip. I walked the whole time square myself, it was a lot of fun. I would LOVE to go to Hawaii! I have always wanted to go there! Being on the beach is my favorite thing to do, so being in Hawaii would be a DREAM!

9.Which famous person dead or alive would you like to meet and why? I was stuck on this answer … I am not sure who I would want to meet … I need more time to think on this one … anyone inspiring!

10.What new or unique hobby would you like to try? I have always wanted to learn how to play the PIANO! I am very quick with the fingers, can type 130wpm, and was always told I could learn the piano quick . . . have always wanted to create a beautiful song on the piano!

11. Why do your write, and what is the focus of your blog? I write because its a way for me to let go inward! I have loved writing in I was as little as 5 years old. A stack of paper and a pencil and I was happy! Today I am the same way, I love to write because it helps me release feelings and thoughts that are trapped inside.

The focus of my blog began with thoughts on every day things, but then I got braver and deeper and began writing along my healing in therapy as a part of my healing process. The focus on my blog has always been to connect with others, but it has been for me to get to know my own feelings and help heal along the process of the healing I do everyday.

I write because I LOVE IT, it completes me.

*Bonus #12. What is something unusual about you that people may not know? I am a WEATHER GEEK! I LOVE severe weather! I have a skywarn certificate and storm spotter certification through the national weather service.. I LOVE to track weather, tornadoes and storms .. I would LOVE to storm chase with the meteorologists out mid west someday! SOMEDAY I will : ).. I am a weather geek! only summer weather, not snow or winter weather!

YOUR TURN if you wish to take on this challenge.. would love to see what you all would come up with :)
