An Interview With Natalie

Hello everyone! I got the wonderful chance of interviewing Natalie of Raindrops On Roses And Whiskers On Kittens. I'm so terribly sorry to everyone (including Natalie!) for the long wait. Natalie and I had a few complications about the Q&A's. But, here we go, anyways! Natalie was one of the very first bloggers that I "met" (through comments on Blogger) since actually being a blogger, myself. It was a while ago, when I had my first tag. She was my first (and only) person who participated, therefore I was "Aw thanks!" And I guess we kicked it off right there. I asked her to host my blog party A Winter Wonderland and she accepted! We had to blast comments back and forth to each other throughout the period of October thru December, planning every little detail down to the last thing. She's such a sweet girl. We learned that we have some similarities, (such as we both play piano (though I think she enjoys it much more than me!) and we love POTO and just those little things that you can relate to!). She loves the Lord with all her heart, and have you SEEN her writing and her drawing? You have not laid eyes on the work of a prodigy of both until you have read her stories and seen her artwork with your own eyes. She's an extremely talented girl and so fun to comment to. Thank you so much Natalie, for letting me interview you, and thank you for bearing with me, as we went through that awfully painful process of getting everything we needed for this. 

*All answers came straight from Natalie's "lips" through the comments that she sent me. ;)

1. What is your name and age?
My name is Natalie and I'm 15 years old. People generally think I'm older as I'm tall (5'9"!) and they claim I "look" older too, haha. :)

2. Why and when did you start blogging?
Well, I've been reading various blogs for quite some time now. I wanted to blog as it looked like something I would enjoy. I also thought it'd be neat to get to know more home school girls like me over the internet as I have a lot in common with some of the bloggers I follow!

3. What would be an ideal amount of followers on your blog?
 Oh my...well, I'm thankful for having 24 as it is! :) I like the idea of having a lot someday as that would mean people like my blog, but I'm content with what I have right now.

4. What is your favorite Bible verse and why?
"I am holding you by your right hand- I, the Lord your God- and I say to you, Don't be afraid I am here to help you." Isaiah 41:13. This verse really helped, strengthened, and comforted me when I had scoliosis surgery on my back. 

5. What are a few of your talents, characteristics, quirks and favorite colors?
I have magic hair that glows when I sing. I'll leave you to your own conclusions on that one. :P Other than that, I love to draw, write, play piano, sew, and other things. Characteristics? I assume you mean personality wise. Well, I'm more quiet in public, but with friends and especially family I'm much more outgoing. I like small groups of people much better than bigger groups. I "dearly love a laugh". I'm paranoid about the silliest things sometimes (what was that noise?!? There must be a murderer in the house!) and I also tend to be bossy....older sibling problem? Quirks? Um, I can't stand to see perfectly good ribbons or wrapping paper thrown away. I must drink my homemade smoothies out of a coffee mug-I don't like drinking it from a glass, don't ask me why. I love lots of colors, but my favorite is aqua blue.

6. Who are your favorite bands/artists?
I like a lot of Christian bands and artists like Matthew West, Mikeschair, City Harbor, Francesca Battistelli, Chris Tomlin, Brandon Health, Kari Jobe and more. I keep a list of all the songs I like that I hear on the radio so I can either listen to them online or buy them one day. :)

7. What would be your ideal vacation in the winter? A cozy log cabin in the woods, but near town or a beach house and the ocean as your backyard? 
I'd pick the log cabin. Even though I'd love to vacation on  a {private!} beach, I gotta say I'm more of a woods girl than a beach girl. Plus, if it's in the winter, it'd be too cold to go in the water!

8. What is your ideal footwear? Flip-flops/Sandals, boots, tennis shoes, high heels or no shoes at all?
I definitely love bare feet. I mostly wear flip-flops and sneakers, although I love boots for the winter. Especially cowgirl boots!

9. What do you want to do with your life when you grow up?
Well, I'd love to pursue some of my interests-namely, photography and writing. I'd love to do exciting things like travel the world- my brother and I once planned out our complete world trip on our private jet or whatever it was. Hey, you can dream. Eventually I'd want to marry the guy God has for me and have a family. :) 

10. If God could show you a glimpse of the past or future which would you want to see, what would you want to see in that time and why?
Well, as exciting and interesting the future would be, I'd rather it remain a surprise. SO I'd look back in time and see my parents as kids-that would be cool! Or my grandparents at their wedding. Or maybe even a glimpse back into Bible times. :) 

Thank you so much for letting me interview you Natalie! It was such an honor and a pleasure!
