if you've been reading the blog for any length of time then you know i have a profound love for vanity fair, and the proust questionnaire is my favorite feature in the publication. "the proust questionnaire is a questionnaire about one's personality. its name and modern popularity as a form of interview is owed to the responses given by the french writer marcel proust."
back when i was brainstorming concepts for this blog and different post series, one of the things i wrote down and knew that i wanted to incorporate one day was interviewing people i admired, who were living creative lives. i am forever fascinated by people who have found their passion in life and are living it. love what you do and do what you love is the greatest gift you can give yourself, and the world. i feel now is the right time to introduce such a series. thus, every last monday of the month, i aim to interview one creative in the same fashion as mr. marcel proust and/or vanity fair. sound fun?
i am sure you have seen posts where i mention and pay homage to my friend and fellow blogger, haydee of happenstance. haydee and i met through a blogging workshop hosted by oh joy! from the moment we started talking, we knew we were kindred spirits. i feel truly lucky that she was the first person who befriended me in this blogging world because she has been nothing but supportive and encouraging. (someone was looking out for me.) if you haven't yet popped over to her wildly popular site, i can't encourage it enough. haydee has a way of selecting just the right image - stylish, fun, or just plain breath taking - and pairs it with her clever thoughts. i asked haydee if she would help me kick off this series, and she graciously obliged. herewith is the first inpirationCOOP mini-view...
thank you so very much for helping me launch this new series, haydee! your most marked characteristic has been a gift to me.
ps~as if being a full-time sahm and operating her own blog wasn't enough, haydee also operates the post social with julia of san diego songbird and heather of la feem. check it.
