What is OT?
I am so glad you asked! I wrote a long post all about occupational therapy and why I chose it as my profession HERE.
What does “pearls on a string” mean?
The name of my blog comes from two different inspirations. First, my beloved grandmother, Marcella, started a tradition with all of her granddaughters on our birthdays: Each year we received a single pearl that we put on a string until there were enough for a necklace. Thinking of pearls on a string evokes happy memories of her style, grace, intelligence, kindness and delicious cooking…basically who I aspire to be every day. Second, the name was partly inspired by the Ryan Adams song “Pearls On A String.” I love him and that song!
How did you come up with your daughters’ names?
Both of their names stem from very different inspirations. Here is a post all about their names, what they were almost named, and what their names would be had they been boys.
Why do you move around so much? Are you in the military?
Nope! My husband and I both work in health care. We moved to Maryland for his residency and to Alaska to try out a new opportunity. We like to explore new places and travel while we are on the search for our Forever City.
How do you have time for this blog?
Good question! How does one have any time for anything? I think when something is a priority and is enjoyable, it gets done. My husband is really supportive, too, which helps tremendously. My return to blogging came at a time when I desperately needed something to do that is just for me, that is creative, and helps channel my emotions into something more positive. It’s pretty much my therapy:)
I’d love to write a blog. How do I get started? How do you collaborate with businesses?
I am so flattered when I receive this question. The best way to get started is to jump in and begin! Blogging is such a fulfilling and fun hobby for me. I’ve written a post all about how to start a blog, which includes how I partner with different brands and businesses.
