Welcome to Inspired Life! I am a mother, but this is not a "Mommyblog" by any means. Yes, I blog about my children (two girls, 12 years apart) but I also write as inspiration strikes me. Current events, women's issues, randomness, sometimes silliness.
Why the name Inspired Life? When I decided to move my writing to an independent blog from another website, I was searching for a name. I looked back on a recent post I had written and that phrase kept coming back to me. It reminds me daily of who I am and what inspires me. That tends to disappear in the daily life of work responsibilities, household responsibilities, and wife and mother responsibilities. With the reminder, I don't let responsibilities to myself get lost along the way.

A fun little holiday quiz-like thing

I found this holiday quiz at Glenneth's blog, Let's Talk and Walk. If you're into healthy living, check out her blog!

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? I do a mix of both, but haven't used bows or ribbons in years. Too tempting for cats and small children!

4. When do you take the tree down? Between Christmas and New Years.
5. Do you like eggnog? I can't stand the stuff.
