Jenny is a military spouse and a mom of 2 boys, one of whom, Jaxson, was recently diagnosed with DYRK1A Syndrome. She writes mainly about parenting a special needs child and does a great job on raising awareness about this rare disease. She opens up her life as a military spouse and her love for fitness on her blog as well. You should definitely check her out.

It's a great way for new bloggers to grow their audience, to support and connect with each other and for people to discover new blogs.

These Are The Questions I Was Asked

1- If you could keep 5 possessions what would you keep? Why? 

My mobile, laptop, wallet, house and camera. (to keep me busy, make memories and to survive)

2- If you had a chance to redo your life, what would you do differently? Why?

If I had the same character as now, I would hardly be able to change anything. But if I had the experience I have today, I would not work so hard spending sleepless nights on my work and I would change my perspective on life and marriage.

3- What is your favorite food?

Bread, cheese and tomatoes. This combination is all my time favorite snack.

4 - Who do you admire the most?

My work coordinator. She is such an amazing person. You can hardly find such a supportive and honest person these days. She is never hesitant to express her opinion and is constantly attacked and judged for that. But she is so strong-willed and so educated and so inspiring.

5 - What inspires you?

Photography...I can't wait when I will own my professional camera one day. This is why I am more a Pinterest and an Instagram girl:)

6 - What is your favorite quote, and why?

As a perfectionist, I use this quote as a daily reminder.

7- If you could have lunch with one person who would it be? Why?

Elen Degeneres. She's so funny, so positive, so entertaining.
I think it would be fun to be in her company for a while. I love it that she always makes surprises for people and her acquaintances, she always tries to bring a smile on people's faces, if not tears of happiness.
