11 Things You Probably Don't Know About Me

Judy and Ellie

Last week I was tagged by Amy at Botanical Brouhaha to play this game of questions:
So Here Are the Rules:
1) You must post the rules
2) Answer eleven questions
3) Tag eleven other bloggers
4) Ask them eleven new questions

1) Who would you say has had the most influence on your life?
The person who has had the most influence on my life is Jesus Christ.

2) Why do you blog?
I blog to share about floral design and growing flowers and how the two sometimes intersect. I hope to encourage that love of flowers in others and maybe encourage them to try their hand at growing them as well. And I love sharing about the wonderful couples who have allowed me the privilege of designing their wedding flowers!

3) Which do you prefer- beach or mountains:
I prefer the mountains, BUT the rest of the family prefers the beach.

4) Name a flower you dislike.
I can't think of any flower I dislike, some I'm not crazy about, but I wouldn't say that I dislike any.

5) Name your favorite movie.
Favorite movie is The Lord of the Rings.

6) If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
Hind sight is 20/20, but if I could change anything I would love to go back to when my kids were little, knowing then, what I know now.

7) What is your favorite fashion trend from you lifetime so far?
I really enjoyed Indian cotton gauze shirts with lots of detail and intricate stitching etc. when I was younger- it's fun seeing updated versions coming around again. Nowadays I dress pretty casually- jeans and tee shirts. I also love scarves- don't wear them as much as I would like to though.

8) Do you dance?
Yes, when I have the opportunity.

9) Who's your favorite band?
Jars of Clay

10) Name one thing you hope to accomplish in your life.
Love well... My Lord, my family and those whose lives I touch and who touch my life.

11) What inspires you?
So many things- I am a visual person so I love to look at things and read things. It has been wonderful checking out the blogs of different floral designers and getting on Pinterest to check out everything else. And I love the beauty I see in nature- sunsets and sunrises, the changing of the seasons and so much more!!!

And here are my eleven questions:
1) What is your favorite season?
2) Are you a morning person or do you prefer staying up late?
3) What gives you joy?
4) What is you family like?
5) What would you prefer to grow if you had a garden- vegetables or flowers, and why?
6) What is a favorite memory from your childhood?
7) How long have you been blogging and what made you start?
8) What usually draws your attention at a wedding or special event?
9) Are you an introvert or extrovert?
10) Who is your favorite artist or musician?
11) How do you cope with disappointments?
