10 Things About You – Grief Aside – Link Up

Carly over at Still Standing Magazine had a great idea for a 10 Things About You Post.  She mentions how early on in the grief process it very much defines us.  Sometimes I feel like all people see when they look at me is the girl that lost a baby.  While that is a huge part of who I am, it is not all I am.  So here is a little bit about me.

  1. Where were you born and where do you live?  – I was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri.
  2. What is your favourite colour? – It used to be yellow, but these days I really love purple.
  3. Most amazing day of your life? – I think I’m going to have to say the day we brought Madeline home.  That is when everything finally felt real, and I was just so beyond relieved to have her there with us.
  4. Favourite movie? – I don’t really have a favorite.  I have several that I really love: The Dark Knight, The Wizard of Oz, The Breakfast Club, and Breakfast at Tiffanys
  5. What are you passionate about? – So many things.  I’m passionate about God and about my family.  I’m passionate about being an advocate for those who aren’t able to speak for themselves.  I’m passionate about being a positive force in this world.
  6. Hobbies? – I love to write, take photographs, and just be creative.
  7. What is your perfect idea of a night out? – A nice dinner that I didn’t have to cook and really just doing anything together with my husband.  I just love spending time with him.
  8. What is your perfect idea of a night in? – Cuddling on the sofa with my husband watching a movie.  Nothing fancy, just simple and easy.
  9. What is a strange fact about you? – I didn’t meet my dad until I was 17.
  10. Your dream job? – I’m not sure.  This is probably why I can’t decide what I want to go back to school to get my Masters in…  I think I would really like to either work with children or go into counseling.  I would like to be able to help others in some way.
