Mystery Blogger Award, Yo.

Well wuddaya know? Yours truly gained a little street cred.

A special thanks to Christina Kyranis for her shout-out to Snippets of SnapDragon!

Check out her blog, friends! It’s called Growing from the Heart.

Christina’s Little Questionnaire for SnapDragon:

1. Which is the best time of day for you? Around 9 in the morning. I enjoy the possibility of the new day ahead.

2. When are you at your best self? Crawling into fresh sheets after a leisurely shower, ready to read or watch a show with my husband.

3. What do you do for fun? I read fiction, The New Yorker, and various blogs; I watch quality television such as BoJack Horseman and Counterpart; I sometimes paint, doodle, or crochet.

4. What’s your favorite pass time? Pretty much everything listed in the answer to Question 3. I also love to travel.

5. If you could magically make one thing happen for yourself in your life, what would it be? I’d want the superpower of being able to eat and drink anything without repercussions. 🙂

Three things about me:

I haven’t eaten meat since 2004. I do, however, love eggs and dairy products.

I became a mom in November 2019 to a beautiful baby boy!

-I am pretty much obsessed with body products and love trying the latest and greatest.

About SnapDragon.

Let’s Get Acquainted.

SnapDragon (re)introduces herself to The Interwebs.

(whispers) “What’s a SnapDragon. . .?”

Hi. I’m SnapDragon. Well, not really. It’s just a nom de plume because I have anxiety and it’s easier that way. 

So, I’ll start with the basics. I’m a 30-something wife, mom, and woman with a passion for all things authentic. I love contemporary fiction, travel, delicious food, and quality artistry. And by quality artistry I mean music, cinema, paintings, and other creations that are authentically produced. I’m not interested in performers or ghost-writers. I want the real-deal, made-with-her-own-hands experience. True quality takes years–maybe even a lifetime–of dedication, practice, and experience. We live in a world where most people try to get a Ph.D on their lunch break, so I have the utmost respect for true artists (of any medium) who create and produce original work. Life’s too short to waste on cheap imitations. I can’t. I won’t.

I’m also a certified high school English teacher. I taught for the better part of a decade in a high-risk, urban area. In short, I met teens from all around the world, and aged about twenty years from the stress of it all. But I also had the time of my life. Those students taught me invaluable lessons about life I will never forget. I’ll return to the classroom one day, but for now I’m home, and grateful.

I’m working on my first novel, which I vow to submit for publication by 2027, the year I turn the Big 4-0. I also paint expressionist pieces, which you can view on my Instagram @snippetsofsnapdragon. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed by my desire to create that I sit on the couch and watch hours of Food Network instead. It’s an artist’s curse, I suppose. The Overwhelm.

Hmm, what else, what else? I love living a simple life with my husband, two cats, and our sweet new baby. I love being home, under a blanket, all cozied up. What can I say? It’s life in the fast lane, yo. I have no desire for high-risk adventure, but delight in the fictitious mishaps of the silver screen. So many stories, so little time.

But above all, I just want to be an authentic person. Whether it’s through my creative output or day-to-day interactions, I hope to spread a little positivity, intelligence, and compassion to others.

Because here I am, and here you are, and I know we can all do great things with the time we have.

So it’s nice to meet ya, love.

Let’s be friends.
