My answers
1.What inspired you to start your own blog?

I always loved to cook. When I got married and started to make my own recipes, people (family and friends) asked me for them and said they were delicious, so I decided to start a blog to be able to share my good and bad experiences, new tricks and recipes, and more! the blog started as a DIY + recipes, but I guess this year has been more about recipes than DIY.

2.What do you like the most about blogging?
I love to share my thoughts, the lessons I learn, and my experiencies. I love to have followers that ask me questions and ask me for recipes I haven't posted yet.

3.What do you like the least about blogging?
What I could say that "I like the least" is that sometimes I'm too tired from my full-time job to take the pictures or write a post, but yet I still do it. 

4.If you have to live in another country, were will you like to live?
As a practical option, I'd love to live in the US. But really really inside of me I would like to live in a ranch, maybe somewhere in Europe like Switzerland, ha! And have cows, ducks, sheep, pigs, chickens, hens, etc!

5.What shows do you enjoy watching?
I loved Dawson's Creek. I still do. I loved Desperate Housewifes, Brothers & Sisters, and Sex and the City. And I love Criminal Minds, the 3 CSI (Miami, NY, and las Vegas, in that order).

6.Which is your favorite movie?
I love so many movies, but I guess the most favorite one of all is The Polar Express. Or Disney's Cinderella.

7.Which are your favorite trends for the season?
Leather skirts, dark nail polishes, and of course, boots!

8.Which is your favorite dessert?
I'm not so much of a sweets person, but my favorite is creme brulee or cheesecake.

9.Which is your go-to recipe?
Chicken and rice casserole. My mom's recipe, I have always loved it and I still do.

10.Which is your favorite season of the year, and why?
Winter. I love wearing winter clothes and I love Christmas, winter food, hot comfort food. I'm a big fan of soups and creams.

11.What is your dream job?
It would have to be from home. I hate going to an office, wearing office clothes. Forget about a plant and safety equipment. I'll stay home and be stucked to a laptop. That's good for me!
