Liebster, baby.

The Abbot just took his German exam, so it's fitting that "Sayin' I Love You" nominated me for a Liebster award!!

So, I guess I'm supposed to start with 11 random facts:
1. I'm a twin.
2. I'm a minute older than my sister.
3. We were born by c-section, because we had our arms wrapped around each other.
4. When we were growing up and would tell people our names, people would never comment on my name and would always say her name was beautiful...because it is! (Francesca)
5. I like the color blue.
6. I love the Great Lakes.
7. When I was little I wanted to live in a lighthouse.
8. I was born in Chicago.
9. Fall is my favorite season.
10. If I could meet any person from history (not counting Jesus) it would be St. Therese of Lisieux.
11. I'm proud to be Polish.

And now the Liebster questions...

1.  Why did you start a blog?
I wanted to share some simple Catholic beauty with others. Welcome to my Domestic Monastery!

2.  What is your favorite time of your day?
Early, during my youngest daughter's last feeding when the whole house is quiet. 

3.  When was the last time you cried and why?
Sometime baby has reflux and colic. There is a lot of crying in this house...

4.  Do you like to leave comments on other people's blogs? Why or why not?
Yes! I know how much I love getting comments and I want to pass on the lovin'!

5.  What is your favorite quote?
My current favorite is from Frances of helps me remember that there is holiness in this work I'm doing! "It is most laudable in a married woman to be devout, but she must never forget that she is a housewife. And sometimes she must leave God at the altar to find Him in her housekeeping."

6.  What is your guilty pleasure?
I loooove watching "19 Kids and Counting." But, I think you already knew that.

7.  Do you have any talents?
I can sing and play guitar, and I love being making things with my hands: knitting, crocheting, sewing, painting, wood-working, cooking, and (using hands and brain) writing!

8.  How old were you when you had your first kiss?
17. It was underwhelming, and I wish it had been with the Abbot (he was a cute 17 year old, if the pictures are accurate). 

9.  How do you feel about plastic surgery?
Um...well, that's kind of a broad question. It's medically necessary at times, and I think it's a blessing in those instances. You won't see me signing up for any kind of elective surgery, if that's what you're wondering!

10.  What is your favorite childhood memory?
Any and all memories of playing with my twin. :-)

11.  How did you come up with the name for your blog?

I know I'm supposed to nominate 11 people...but it's a miracle I got this much typed out!! So, I may need to come back later and do that. Or not. I think my favorite bloggers have already gotten nominations, anyway!!


  1. I think it's so cool that you're a twin and the reason for the c section is sweet!
