Blogger Q&A

I was tagged by Chelsea of Chels & The City to do this blogger Q&A, so I thought it would be fun to answer some questions so that you can get to know me a little better. 

ONE | If you could live any place in the world, where would it be?
I've always wanted to live in London! I've never been to England, but I have this feeling that I would love it there. 

TWO | What do you miss most about being a kid?
Honestly, not having to worry about money. Or anything really. Kids have it easy. 

THREE | Who or what inspires you?
Stories, photographs, and artwork. I get inspired by the words I read and the pictures I see. Ideas come to me as I read or when I'm perusing Pinterest or looking at a painting. I'm a visual person. 

FOUR | Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?
In a month, I'll be 25, so at 35 I hope I have a job that I love (still working at Westchester Magazine would be awesome), married to a kind, lovable, funny guy, and have two kids. 

FIVE | Your 50th birthday party- who's invited?
My husband, my kids, and all my amazing friends!

SIX | What are your strengths?
I pride myself on being friendly and kind, on not judging people, and on making others feel comfortable. I'm also an awesome listener. 

SEVEN | What are things you want to improve on?
Since my job is a social one -- talking to people, going to events, etc. -- I want to get better at being a social person and being outgoing. It doesn't come naturally, but I'm trying. It helps that everyone at work is so friendly and hilarious. 

EIGHT | Places you've traveled to?
Obviously the tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT), Pennsylvania, Boston, Albuquerque, Washington D.C., Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Niagara Falls (both sides), and the coolest of them all: Israel. 

NINE | What is a routine you could never do without?
Before, I go to sleep I like to check Instagram since I find it calming and read a chapter or two of whatever book I'm currently reading. 

TEN | What was an act of kindness shown towards you that caught you by surprise?
The most recent thing I can think of is that my step-mom Janet got me a Starbucks gift card for getting a job. I thought it was a really sweet little treat. 

ELEVEN | List some of the best times in your life in less than one minute. ready...go! (don't cheat!) Anytime I hang out with my friends or brothers, Disney World with Jackie at twelve, Israel with Avra three years ago, Orlando with my family, playing cards with my brothers and grandparents every other week, mother-daughter days and father-daughter days, and having adventures with friends in NYC. 


I tag: Jackie, MartieNaomi, Kristin, Sharon, Lix, Nikki, Elana, Lynn & Angie.

  2. This was a fun post learning more about you! I agree that kids have it SO easy...being an adult comes with so many more responsibilities which means more worries. PS Thanks for the tag! I'll try to do the post :)

  4. So nice to get to know you better Sara! I've always dreamed of living in London too. I think the only city I could live in apart from New York would be London.

  14. You are so friendly and kind, that is something I love about you. Being outgoing doesn't come naturally for me either, but this year I'm trying my best :) Since I moved to California, Im pushing myself to go out more and meet new people. Even when is not the easiest thing to do, it is making me feel more confident and happy. Love this post and getting to know more about you ;)
