Five Things – 1st Edition

Hi guys! Hope you’re having a great week so far! I thought it would be fun to write a post and share five things about me so that my readers can learn more about me. I think it’ll be fun to create a “Five Things” series where I ask and answer questions about myself and hopefully have my readers engage in answering the questions as well. You can answer all questions or just a couple- whatever you’d like! 🙂

1. Why did you start blogging?
I decided to start blogging after I gave birth to my son earlier this year. For some reason, I thought I would have some spare time while staying at home with him. (Ha! I bet all moms are laughing at the fact that I imagined having “spare time” after having a newborn!) Anyway, I’ve always enjoyed writing and I think blogging is a perfect platform for me to share my thoughts and ideas.

2. What are your favorite TV shows?
I LOVE Orange Is the New Black and binge watched the latest season. I’m not currently hooked on any other shows since I feel like nothing else can compare to it. LOL! Meanwhile, I’ve been watching HGTV here and there and especially enjoy Property Brothers and Flip or Flop. Let me know if there are any shows you recommend!

3. What is your favorite place you’ve traveled to?
Definitely Japan! I love the food, people, and culture! It is such a beautiful place!

4. What is one skill you wished you had?
I wish I was more artistic. I enjoy painting because I find it to be relaxing, however, I am not the best at it.

5. What are some words of wisdom or advice you would give to your younger self?
Life isn’t always how you plan it to be but everything happens for a reason.

Thank you for tuning into my very first Five Things post! Please feel free to share your answers with me! Also, check out my other new Coffee Talk series that I just launched here. Have a great day!
