11 Random things about me:

- I don't have a smartphone so I use E's phone for instagram when i'm with him.
- I love Florida weather but sometimes I miss the green hills of PA.
- I am addicted to Gossip Girl. And....Dawson's Creek. Guilty pleasures.
- I always drink my tea with cream and sugar.

- Surprisingly, morning is my favorite time of the day. It's so peaceful.

Questions from Samantha:
- Where is the coolest place you've ever visited/vacationed? Heidelberg, Germany. It's this gorgeous little town with an old castle, cobblestone roads and little coffee shops.
- What is your favorite meal? Anything with pasta!
- What season do you enjoy most and why? I can't seem to make up my mind. Every season but winter--although I'm a sucker for the first snow. I love the beginnings of seasons, it feels like change in the air, literally.
- What is the best gift you have ever received? E writes me love notes that beat out anything else. Those words mean the world to me.
- Do you prefer coffee, tea or neither? Tea! With cream and sugar.
- Are you an early bird or a night owl? It depends. I love mornings but if I've been up late, I have a hard time waking up early....
- What was your favorite subject in grade school? English, no question.
- How did you come up with your blog name and style? Organic Grey stems from my love of grey interiors and my desire to live the most natural, organic life I can.
- Cat person or dog person? Dog person forever.
- What does an ideal weekend look like for you? Hmm...I would somehow combine mornings at a Paris cafe with afternoons of shopping and evenings spent with E and family around a bonfire at a lake. If that is even possible--but hey, it's ideal.
- If you could live in any other era, what would it be? I'm infatuated with everything from 1900-1950.
