I was soooo excited when Benita replied to me with her answers for Five Questions, I couldn't WAIT to read her answers. Benita's blog about her amazing home in Stockholm has been in my reader for years now. I have watched her live in two different houses, both of which have been perfectly tidy (and almost completely white, my heart!).
It is my goal in life to have a house as perfectly designed and organized as hers. Chez Larsson is like eye-candy for the organization-obsessed (like me). She takes being organized to a whole different level. I mean, this is her pantry:
Sigh. If she walked into my house she would cringe. But, I have bookmarked every cupboard/drawer in her house, and I'll get better. Benita, you're my hero!
What do you like most about writing Chez Larsson?
I love all the feedback and I love the online friendships I've made over these past four years!
Where do you see you/your blog in the next few years?
I have no idea! In my personal life I'll probably stay in my current house and keep tweaking it and hopefully also get a chance to pursue some hobbies that I haven't had time for this past year since the move. If I'm still blogging? Time will tell I guess.
How do you find time just for YOU?
Me time is early in the morning on weekends before my son Wille gets up. I have breakfast and watch stuff on tv that I've recorded during the week but haven't had a chance to see.
What’s a typical day in your busy life like?
I get up at around 5:30 am. Work 7 am - 4 pm. Make and have dinner and spend some time with Wille (we usually watch a show we both like such as Mythbusters, How I met Your Mother, CSI, Criminal Minds...) and when he does school work I work on some project or other. I try to be in bed by 10 pm, 11 at the latest.
Do you have any advice for someone who wants to start a blog/business?
Blog about something you're truly passionate about, not something you think others will want to read about or that you think you'll make money from. Use your own content and don't forget photos!
Thank you again Benita! Love having a little peek into your life!
