What is your most favorite smell/scent?
I love the smell of lavender soap because it reminds me of my paternal grandmother. I like the mixed smells of Best Friend’s shampoo and deodorant. Also, the smell of anything delicious cooking.
How do you write: computer, longhand or other?
Usually on my computer, just because it’s faster and I’m less likely to lose a saved document than a scrap of paper. I also love using tools like Google Drive and Evernote to organize and store my digital notes.
Your favorite blog post that you have written?
I’ve been blogging for a little over four years now, so it’s hard to pick just one favorite post. But if I had to pick, I’d go with Sing from the Sacred Harp.
It’s not particularly eloquent, but it showcases my love for a kind of music that most people don’t get. It represents a bit of an “ah ha” moment in my musical journey, and that makes it important to me.
What’s one of your favorite books from childhood?
Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House on the Prairie books were the first chapter books/series I remember reading, and I read them so much that the covers fell off. Her writing is just so incredibly descriptive, it puts me right there on the prairie.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I had my fourth CBT session last week, and have learned (and am continuing to learn) lots of ways to manage my anxiety and stress.
This weekend I’m heading to the Southwest Texas Sacred Harp Convention, where I’ll get to meet up with fellow singers and spend two days with the music I love!
