Twenty Questions | A Quick Q&A

wtf sweatshirt & vintage chair

I think it was a PR email that led me to 20 Questions with Sarah Jessica Parker at Marie Claire the other day and the happy click-through accident quickly reminded me of my early days of blogging {of OUR early days of blogging, if you’re still here with me ;} and it made me smile and think of simpler times and early dreams and passions all coming to life as we created our spaces online and shared our stories with one another.

If you’re a little unfamiliar, blogging memes and tagging posts would filter around the personal blogosphere where we’d all answer Q&A lists like this, then tag other bloggers to post and answer the same list of questions. It was not only fun, it kind of helped remind us who we are, what we love, and what our values are. I think in doing these fun little exercises every now and then, makes it easier to stay true to ourselves every single day.

So even though I’m sure we’re all a little more interested in Sarah Jessica Parker’s twenty Q&A’s, because well, let’s face it, she’s SJP, I thought I’d still take a moment to do the same and “tag” anyone who’d like to join me as well and post on their own blog.
