6. What are the challenges that come with running a blog, and what are some of the lessons you have learned because of those challenges?

Some of the challenges is being “judged” or I will compare myself to other bloggers and try to “compete” with their content. The lessons I have learned is that A: not all people will like what I post, B: I am in my own journey and don’t compare myself to others.

There’s a lot but probably spending my summers in Maine with my poppy, or going to Italy with my G.B., Poppy and my mom and meeting all of my cousins.

9. If you could have any superpower, what might that be?

Probably teleportation because I am constantly running around and wanting to be everywhere at once.

10. Do you prefer cooking, baking, or neither?

I prefer both cooking and baking for different reasons cooking because I hate measuring and being Italian I don’t really measure. Baking because its more enjoyable and I can taste test all the ingredients before, during, and afterwards. I enjoy both I do a lot more cooking than baking so I look forward to baking when I can.
