Where do you live?
Right now, John and I are technically ‘homeless’, if you will. John’s medical school is in Blacksburg, Virginia. I am from a very small town in Arkansas & John is from Columbus, Ohio. We are spending August 2013 – April 2014 doing John’s ‘audition rotations’. This requires us to relocate to a new city and/or state each month. We spent a month in Fort Smith, AR, Tulsa, OK, and next is Little Rock, AR. This winter we will be in Virginia & the Carolinas.
When/Why did you start blogging?
I started The Sweetest Thing in January of 2012. At the time, it was simply a way to document what John & I were up to… what I did while he studied, where we traveled on the weekends, wedding planning, etc. In the Spring of 2013, the blog more or less evolved into a place to document my personal style & share hair/beauty routines/opinions/reviews.
What is your education?
John & I actually met in college at Harding University where I got a BBA in Sales/Marketing. During his first year of medical school, I stayed at Harding to get my MBA.
Where did you get your blog name from?
The Sweetest Thing is a song by U2, one that I always loved. One evening soon after becoming engaged to John (when I knew I may start a blog), I heard the song on the radio. Towards the end it says, “a blue eyed boy met a brown eyed girl, oh, oh, The Sweetest Thing,” and I knew I had to go with it! I’ve always loved his pretty blue eyes!
