When did I start blogging? Back in 2007, when I was pregnant with my identical twins. 
 
I write when: I can get up before the children, or have the energy to stay up later. On road trips, I always bring a notebook and will write while my husband drives.

Where I work: In my day job, you'll find me at the hospital - I'm a registered nurse. 2014 marks 21 years for me. 
 
I am connected: A little too much. I've been trying to limit myself to mornings and evenings to answer emails, but that's a hard habit to break. 
 
When I’m stressed, I...Tend to be much more short tempered. I'm waiting for clearance from my doctor next week to start running again. (Just had a new baby).
 
My favorite gadget is: My iPad. It goes in my bag wherever I go.

My favorite TV shows: House MD, Merlin (BBC), Sherlock, and Doc Martin. 
 
My favorite movie: Shakespeare in Love.
 
Coffee or tea: Both! I love coffee in the morning, and tea in the afternoon! I can't live without my fancy creamers, and won't drink 'regular' coffee from the drive thru. 
 
I love: My faith, my husband, and my children.
