1. Tell us a little about your blog (name/reason why you blog):
My blog is called Stop and Smell the Chocolates because I think everybody should take a little time out of their busy day to enjoy God’s blessings all around them. And I like chocolate. A lot. I try to make my blog a nice place to take a little break and I have chocolatey goodness every Friday! I was inspired to start blogging by my friend Sarah at Real Life. I think there’s a hidden writer in me that wanted to get out. Blogging has been the perfect outlet!
2. How long have you blogging?
I started my blog in April of 2008 and am still going strong!
3. How woul
d you define THAT family?
THAT family can be so many things – a family that makes you appreciate your blessings, a family that makes you laugh, a family that can laugh at themselves, a family that inspires you, a family that educates you in what not to do, a family that makes you feel not so strange after all…
4. When did you discover you were a part of THAT family?
I must admit – I was in denial about this for a long time. I don’t have multiple trips to the emergency room. I only have 1 son, so I don’t have sibling issues to deal with. I thought that somehow I didn’t “qualify”. But then one day I found some dirty dishes that I had hidden in the oven 3 days earlier. And it got me thinking…and thinking. Well that and the fact that I don’t have a problem with cake being a breakfast food. I started realizing that the clues had been there all along – I really was part of a THAT family!! It explained so much – LOL!
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
