Question of the week:

RAnn is starting a new feature to Sunday Snippets. Each week she is going to post a question of the week for all the Sunday Snippets participants to answer (answering the question is completely optional). She is beginning the series of questions by asking everyone to introduce themselves.

I always feel funny introducing myself. I’m not a particularly exciting person or lead a very exciting life, but here goes. My name is Carol D’Annunzio. 🙂 On August 22 my husband and I will be married 10 years. We have one son, Andrew, whom we homeschool. He is eight years old. We currently live in NJ near the shore.

I am a “cradle-Catholic” but didn’t take my faith seriously until my late teen years. I spent nine years discerning a religious vocation with a group of sisters (the Little Sisters of the Poor). It was a wonderful experience and I am grateful for my time there even though it became clear I was called to marriage and family. Last summer I went back to college full time to finally finish my bachelor’s degree in English. I hope to finish by the spring 2015.

My hobbies include reading, writing, knitting, cooking, crafting and learning new things. I have a  good eye for detail and enjoy proofreading. I hope to offer proofreading services sometime in the future. I also have an Etsy Shop where I sell printables such as bookmarks, gift tags, etc.

As for blogging, I had a few different blogs over the years before beginning Simple Catholic Living in May 2010. What I love most about blogging is the many wonderful people I have had the opportunity to meet over the years, including everyone who links up at Sunday Snippets.

That’s about it. 🙂

  1. Carol, thanks for your personal introduction. I wish we had Little Sisters of the Poor in southwest Missouri. As our nation ages, we need many more of these good sisters to protect the vulnerable elderly from being murdered by those who think they are worthless.

    • SimpleCatholic says:

      Very true, that. We definitely need more examples like the Little sisters as witness to the value of the elderly. I just hope that Obamacare doesn’t go through and risk the Little Sisters of the Poor’s presence here in the US.

  2. Carol, I didn’t realize you lived near the shore! I just visited Lucy in Margate last week (I’m originally from NJ but now live in Canada…)
