A couple of days ago, my sister, Allie—whose blog you can find here—posted an interview she did of our whole family. The idea had me thinking, so I’ve decided I’m going to do one of my own, but with different questions of course. I feel like this is a great way for my lovely readers to get a little glimpse into our lives, and I know interviewing my family is going to be fun. I’ll post my answers to the questions as well, just so you can get to know me a little better, and I’m curious to see how many of our answers will be the same (if they match, they'll be highlighted in purple). Unfortunately, I think that will depend on whether my family chooses to be honest or silly. Let’s get started!
