I am so excited to be swapping again this week with the most amazing Tamara from Tamara Camera Photography! If you have not met Tamara yet, be sure to stop by for a visit! Tamara is a warm and generous mom to two adorable littles, Scarlet and Des and wife to the very creative Cassidy. She takes absolutely beautiful photos and shares all of her warmth through her writing, even sharing her own story in the amazing compilation The Mother Of All Meltdowns! Be sure to stop by to read her answers to the questions that I sent to her.

1. How has 2015 been for you so far? Have you achieved any goals? Or you working towards any goals? What are your plans for the early part of the year?

Well 2015 has been pretty good so far…taxes have been filed and I am looking forward to our return. As for goals, well sad to say that I have not started my exercise routine, because I just have not managed to fit it in…yet! My plan is to officially start it on February 2nd!

I am about halfway through my first book of the year. I am taking part in an online book club that Shelly from DIY Mama started with Lisa from ExpandNG called PageTurners! January’s book selection is Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert!

2. What’s the best movie you saw in 2014? (I’m asking because it’s award show season!)

Okay, this is probably really pathetic but…the only movies from 2014 that I have actually seen would be Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spiderman 2! LOL! So of those two I am going to have to go with Captain America! 🙂 I would, however, still like to see Dracula: Untold, X-Men: Days of Future Past, & Into the Woods.

3. I’m on a breakfast kick right now.. what is your favorite winter breakfast?

I can really eat any kind of breakfast…though it would be for dinner, since I don’t eat breakfast…but I do love a big bowl of oatmeal with wheat toast!

4. Do you have any plans to travel this winter, spring or summer yet?

YES! LOL! Now that we know what our tax return looks like…we are in the planning stages of a family vacation to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. The hubby and I went on our honeymoon there and we could not wait to be able to someday take the kids back there with us. We will rent a cabin for a week and explore Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and the Smoky Mountains.

5. Someone asked me this and I loved it. How many states have you been to in the US? What is your first choice for a state you’ve never visited but would love to see someday?


I have never been, but would love to visit…New Orleans, Massachusetts, and the Outer Banks of North Carolina!

I think that Massachusetts would be my first choice…for so many reasons…I want to go to Salem and Scituate (hubby’s family were founding father’s back in the 1600’s), and of course to see you! 🙂

6. My kids are infamous for the things that come out of their mouths. What is something hilarious one of your kids has said recently?

LOL! Oh there are so many things…but because mine are older, they are not at all G-rated! So here is a funny story, that happened maybe a year or so ago…My daughter was getting ready to take a shower, one day, and we have a full length mirror on the back of the bathroom door…as I walked into the bathroom, she was standing in the tub, jumping up and down and she says to me, “Look mommy, they bounce!” LOL!

7. What is your favorite thing about the town/city you live in?

Well, it is home. My hubby and my kids are here…and I grew up here.

8. If I came to visit you, with my camera and my two kids (2 and 5), what would we do together in your town?

We have a wonderful children’s museum and zoo, that are right next door to one another. And in a little town about a half an hour away is a beautiful nature park that would amaze your camera!

9. Have you ever encountered any writer’s block? If so, how do you overcome it?

Oh absolutely! I kind of just start writing…I may have to re-write it once or twice, but it normally helps.

10. What’s your fondest dream which you have yet to accomplish?

Oh I have so many! I am such a hopeless dreamer! I want to write my book, travel around the UK, stand at Urquhart Castle and look out over Loch Ness, travel to Massachusetts, travel to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, stay in a castle, go back to the Caribbean, go to a comic-con that both David Tennant and John Barrowman are attending, and even become a grandma (someday!).
