I don't think it's a secret that I enjoy memes, quizzes, personality tests, writing about the details of life, the things that make us. I'd seen this alphabet before and when Lindsey responded it reminded me that I haven't done one of these in a while. Feel free to write your own responses and link to it in the comments.
A: Attached or single? Attached
B: Best friend? the one I married
C: Cake or pie? Cake. I have a strange aversion to hot fruit
D: Day of choice? Sunday
E: Essential item? my iPhone
F: Favorite color? Blue
G: Gummy bears of worms? Bears for sure; I can eat a whole bag.
H: Hometown? I claim Mobile, Alabama since it's the place I feel I grew up and spent the most time
I: Favorite indulgence? Pedicure
J: January or July? January. It's the month of my birth, the beginning of a new year. What can I say, I'm a sucker for fresh starts.
