Q&A About Me

Yesterday I posted Steph's Q&A so I figured I'd answer the same questions about myself today to share with all you out there. Just in case you wanted to know!

Trinidad, West Indies (Caribbean)

Current location:
Central Florida (moved to Florida when I was 18)

I don't live in San Fran as my profile photo above may suggest. Just love traveling and exploring different places. 

Online Marketing/Account Manager for a Tech company.

Favorite mentor/idol of the past or present: 
My late grandmother (granny) for showing our family unconditional love and always being supportive of me. I've also always loved Bob Marley, Mother Theresa and Mahatma Ghandi for their inspirational lives and the marks they left on history for different reasons. 

Quote that represent your mentality:
To keep things simple and a quote I've always turned to many times throughout my life: What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

What's your dream vacation if you were loaded?
My travel bucket list is never-ending but I'd love either a busy city trip exploring all the major cities/countries in Europe or going across the Pacific Ocean to the luxurious islands of Bora Bora in Tahiti and relaxing in paradise.

Husband ~ likes & quirks:
K is a very sincere and kind hearted person who wears his heart on his shoulder (which can also be a quirk when it comes to football season and his team is losing). 

Favorite season:
We don't go real seasons here but I love warm, sunny weather however Florida in the summer can be uncomfortably hot so leaning toward Fall when it cools off a bit but still warm enough to be outdoors.

What does your name mean?
I never looked this up before but Emily means to strive or excel, which makes sense and is something I find important in my personal and professional life. 

What items do you own that hold sentimental value to you?
My late grandmother's earrings along with some of her crystal and silverware that I inherited when she passed. I also have my baby book and several photo albums from throughout the years that hold a lot of memories.

What do you wish for when you blow out your birthday candles or does it change every year?
Every year I wish for another year of health and happiness and often also wish for success in my career path.

Thanks for reading through some facts about me. More random info about yours truly can be found on my About Me page.

Is it the weekend yet?

Q&A With Steph

I had the pleasure of casually "interviewing" Steph from Life According to Steph recently to learn more about her background and what makes her tick. I've grown to love reading her blog on a daily basis and enjoy her witty tips for everyday life along with her no-bullshit personality and sense of humor. I answered the same questions and will post my Q&A tomorrow if you wish to know more about me.

Meet Steph:

Meadowbrook, Pennsylvania

Current location:
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Marketing Communications Manager

Favorite mentor/idol of the past or present:
I come from a long line of strong women who were doers both in their personal and professional lives: hard workers, great cooks, good housekeepers, outspoken women. I've benefited from all of  that greatly.

Quotes you love:

What's your dream vacation if you were loaded?
I'm up for almost anything, and being loaded would grant me the luxury of limitless travel since I wouldn't have to worry about days off. I'd make my way through every US state in chauffeured RV and bring the dogs along. I'd tick off everywhere in the world after that and I'd take ocean liners so my dogs could come without flying because I'm a crazy dog lady.

Years married:
Four years on September 25th. Last month 12 years together too.

Husband ~ likes and quirks:
MFD is the mayor, he'll talk to anyone and make friends wherever we go.

Favorite season:
I love something about every season, but overall I love the fall the best. Great skies, changing leaves, crisp weather.

What does your name mean?
Stephanie - Crowned in victory.

What items do you own that hold sentimental value to you?
Clothes my Mom Mom made me when I was little, my wedding cake topper, spaghetti glasses from my Grandmom.

What do you wish for when you blow our your birthday candles or does it change every year?
I can't divulge my secret birthday wishes.


Check back tomorrow to read my Q&A and definitely hop over to Steph's blog to read some useful tips and show her some love!

Thanks Steph for taking the time to answer these questions and it was fun getting to know you better.
