[i’ve had a few questions via inbox, email and in person (some have been edited to combine themes) sitting around waiting to be answered. here goes nothing]
1) how did you meet your husband?
we met while studying abroad in copenhagen during college and then reconnected in new york at a party a few years later. the rest is history!
2) what prompted you to go gluten-free? is it hard?
my sister was diagnosed w/ having a gluten intolerance a few years ago by her awesome doctor in denver. after years of chronic health problems, she finally found relief. my mother and i tried it out, figuring since it tends to have genetic links that we might benefit, too. (note: having a gluten intolerance is very different than having celiac disease) it’s helped me a lot. less puffy, less sick, less tired. it also cured formerly constant stomach aches. it’s not particularly difficult considering the upside. every now and then it’s awkward if a sandwich is your only lunch option or someone serves pasta at a dinner party, but otherwise there are so many great alternatives that i hardly bat an eye anymore.
3) you seem to have a very nice life. i hope you’re grateful for it and realize how lucky you are.
i do, i am, i do.
4) it seems everyone on tumblr is pregnant. are you and PKS planning to have a family?
i know! and i love it - there will be no shortage of cute babies. for us: eventually, but not this year.
5) i’ve noticed your engagement ring in various posts and it’s beautiful. what kind is it? i’d love to point my boyfriend in a similar direction.
thank you! it’s an emerald cut w/ 2 side baguettes.
6) are trying to be a writer? do you think you’re a photographer?
no and no. i periodically write on this blog - but only when the mood strikes and only about things that i feel readers will relate to. while i take photos and i write, i do not think i am a ‘writer’ nor a ‘photographer.’ those are titles for people who have studied it and made it their livelihood, not hobbyists.
and a question for you all: you might have noticed the last couple of fashion-related posts have contained affiliate links in an effort to see if it was worth trying to monetize erehwyna. what’s your take on this: do you hate when people use them? don’t mind? just want an upfront disclaimer? i truly value the opinions of my readers, and if you’d rather read a blog that doesn’t use them, i won’t. as usual, questions and comments are always welcomed. i appreciate any feedback - good, bad or otherwise!
