I haven’t participated in one of these blogfests/memes in ages, and it felt good to do it. Thank you Nicole for hosting this. There’s still time to sign up and do it.


  1. Fellow blogfest participant here. I really like the idea of being a doula or lactation expert. So many women have no idea how to prepare or care for an infant. What an amazing career that could make. If you get a chance, check out my answers at:

  2. So glad you signed up for the blogfest! I enjoyed your answers, especially the Filipino curse word. I don't know it, but isn't it funny how curse words just look naughty, no matter what language they're in? LOL

  3. Hooray for foreign curse words. They're the best!

  4. Yes, they are! Thank you for dropping by!
