Getting to Know Alicia, 30 Days of Questions

I found this idea on one of my new favorite blogs, Going with the Flow by Desirae.  You can trace it back through many blogs and Pinterest; it's popular and I can see why. If you want to follow along, you can go to the original post, here, and grab the button.

The concept is to answer a question a day.  This exercise will both be good for my readers to get to know me as well as for me to really think about life.  Maybe I'll learn something about myself; I do surprise myself from time to time.  Here are the 30 questions that will be answered.  Following "The List", I'll do Question #1.
