I thought it would be fun to do my own Vogue Inspired 73 Questions – just so you can know me a bit better!
I’ve loved watching the celebrity vlogs over the years. Even though I know they’ve probably been staged. (There’s no way Victoria Beckham or Serena William’s would not vet those questions before the camera started rolling!). But hey – they were still interesting with a lot of surprising answers.
Now, I’m sure you’ve taken a peek at the About Me page so you know my journey. So, this is a little bit of fun to really get to know me.
