Thank you to the ever wonderful Lila at Little Wolff for nominating me. I’m not usually one to participate in these kinds of things but I loved reading Lila’s responses so thought what the heck!

  1. I used to despise coffee, the smell, the taste, everything!
  2. I’m extremely awkward around new people – I’d never be the first to start up a conversation with a stranger.
  3. I overshare (why else would I be a blogger haha)
  4. I can see both sides of an argument – doesn’t mean I won’t quit fighting about something.
  5. I always wanted 4 kids
  6. Chocolate cake does nothing for me
  7. I made a deal with Andreas to change our surname on our tenth wedding anniversary (I don’t see that happening)
  8. I would love to adopt a child and wish it wasn’t so hard to do in Australia
  9. I know what fashion is but I have no sense of style
  10. I punched myself in the nose at boxing today – I’m completely uncoordinated!
  11. I will have another “wedding”/vow renewal in the distant future

1. Were you named after someone? or did you name your children after someone?
My middle name is after my maternal grandmother who I never met and Logan’s middle name is in honour of both grandfathers.

2. Would you rather invest in, nice clothes, good furniture or art?​
This is a hard one between art and furniture – most of our art is hand-me-down but I really would love to update all our furniture so I’m going with that!

3. Where is your dream location, holiday or home?
Apartment in New York!​

4. What’s your favourite scent?
Camping but if I have to be specific probably the smell of dew when you wake up early in the morning.​

My engagement ring with it’s coincidental upside-down A.

Something on Triple J.

Icky Sticky Toffee Pudding which I finally learnt to make last year.

My Nana who passed last year.​

10. What do you like most about blogging?
The friends I’ve made.​

11.​ What is your oldest memory?
This is a doozy because it’s hard to differentiate between photos & stories. I think I remember walking down a hall when my sister was born.

Once again feel free to participate, thank you Lila for sharing your answers and letting me reveal even more of myself!

    I’m the same with 2, 3, 8 and 10 (not that I punched myself at boxing but I’m sure I would). I will eat your share of the chocolate cake and I really really want to know what you would change your surname to!
