What is your favourite kind of food?

Pizza Hut Pan Pizza! 🍕

What is the top spot on your travel bucket list and why?

Ooh, that is hard! My top places would be Colorado Springs, CO to go to the Focus on the Family Welcome Center and to meet a blogging friend, Gracie! South Florida, because it is gorgeous there and it is where my cousins live! Tennessee, to stay in a log cabin in the mountains and go to the Ripleys Aquarium in Gatlinburg! Outer Banks, NC to stay at an oceanfront beach house! It looks really cool there, and the vacation rentals look absolutely amazing! (Sorry I could only narrow it down to 4 😉)

Is there are any kind of adventure sport that you want to try?

I really want to get into Snowboarding! 🏂 And I may get to try surfing in Florida this Summer! 🏄‍♂️🌴

What was the last book you read? Would you recommend it to someone?

Ha, well, I’m actually not sure! I generally listen to audio rather than read books. I do read books that are appealing to me or about something I am passionate about. If you want to go into Real Estate, I would recommend, ‘The Millionaire Real Estate Agent: It’s Not About the Money…It’s About Being The Best You Can Be!

What movie that isn’t released yet are you most looking forward to?

I have no idea 🙈

Are you currently watching any TV show? Which one is it?

Sorry, nope. 😶 However, I really enjoy watching America’s Got Talent and Britain’s Got Talent! 😃

If you could be in any profession, what would you be and why?

Real Estate!! My plan is to be a Real Estate Agent when I am older. I love interacting with and helping people, and I am really passionate about houses! 😃🏠

How close are you to completing your next goal? What is it?

Finishing school for the year! I still have a ways to go. 🙈

If you could live in any city in the world, where would you live?

I choose North Bay, Ontario! It is far enough from home, yet close enough to visit a few times a year. It is a beautiful city in Northern Ontario with gorgeous rocks and trees, lakes, and of course, amazing fall colours! 🍂 It is a perfect place to build my dream log home on the lake! 😃

Do you have a pet? If not, would you want to have one and what kind?

Not officially 😉 There is a neighbour cat that is at our house every day! He goes home to be cleaned and fed, but basically lives at our house! He even sleeps in the house sometimes! I think of him as our cat, but my mom doesn’t. 😉

Why did you start your blog?

TO INSPIRE OTHERS! I want to share with others things that I find interesting, helpful, and inspiring in my life! Blogging is a great way to do just that. 😊




I have been to Michigan, Indiana, Vermont, and Florida!

I have 5 brothers and 1 sister!

I broke my Collar Bone rolling out of bed. 😂

I am done Math for the year!

I am going on vacation in June!

I have been blogging for less than two months!

I hate ketchup with Mac and Cheese.

I prefer listening to wordless music!

I really want to buy a SodaStream!!

I have never been on a plane.

What is your favourite blog and why?

Oh, my. How shall I answer this…I have been inspired by so many blogs, I can’t say I have a favourite, but one that has really stood out to me and inspired me is Maggie’s blog:

Dreaming of Guatemala


How did you feel when you got your first follower?

I was very excited! It was very cool, though I was very eager to get a few more. 😉


Has blogging made you a better person in some way?

Yes, it is very fun to meet new bloggers and to find out what interests them. It is something that I can focus on and enjoy and I have a lot of fun doing it! I also learn better writing skills!


If someone told you that you could only make 5 more posts on your blog what would you write about?

Hmm…that is hard. I would be quite sad since I am loving blogging, but I would post some things that are important to me in life and that I think others would enjoy and find valuable and thank everybody for their support.


If you didn’t blog what would you use that spare time doing?

I would spend more time exploring the world of Real Estate, online shopping, listening to Adventures in Odyssey, or preparing for my future!!! That is something I love doing 😊


What do you hope your followers will gain from reading your blog?

INSPIRATION. I want all my followers to be inspired in life by what I post and I love sharing with them ways that I find make life just a little bit better!


I think blogging has therapeutic qualities, do you?

Yes, I would say so. It is so rewarding when you see how your posts inspire and help others! Even though it can be stressful to fit it into my schedule at times, I always make it work! It has become a priority for me.
