My Q & A...

1. If you had to choose a world without fashion or a world without music, which would you choose ?  
I would choose the world without fashion. Music gives life. It brings people together in ways that one could only imagine. It heals. It brings happiness and so many other emotions.

2. Have you accomplished any of your life goals? 
To be honest, I never really had any concrete goals. Before having children, I was kind of just floating about in this world. My goal now is to raise two wonderful, happy, productive children. Working on this one every day.

3. What's the meaning of LOVE to you?
Love is kind. It's patience. It's caring. It's honest. Love is when you want everything for someone, and will sacrifice a little piece of you to give it to them.

4. If you could go anywhere in the world right now, where would it be? 
Jamaica. It's cold here y'all! 

5. Who's the biggest inspiration in your life right now?
My children. They inspire me to do everything.

6. What's your favorite thing about blogging? 
The outlet that it provides. The support that it lends. The people that I have "met".

7. What's your favorite thing out of anything you own? 
It's the ring that my great-grandmother "gave" me. I say "gave", because she told me it was mine, but that I couldn't wear it because she didn't want me to go to school with jewelry on. I was around 11 years old, and I put it on anyway. What happened you ask?? It got stuck on my finger and wouldn't come off!! Yea. I got in trouble for that one. LOL! When I met my hubby, he cut the ring off of my finger. But that ring is my piece of her. I love it with all of my heart.

8. Do you believe in fate?
I sure do. I believe that everything is in place to happen in my life. I'm just living it out.

9. What's your favorite song? 
Overjoyed, by Stevie Wonder

10. Jeans or dresses ? 
Jeans. Even though it's hard to find a pair that fits great, but once you do, it feels so good.

11. What's your favorite food? 
I don't have a favorite food. I do like lots of it though. LOL!
