#EllieKeys 30 Days of Me – Get to know the author – Day Thirty

Ellie Keysget to know me

Today is Day Thirty of my daily posts of something new about me or “Get to know the author”.

Yesterday’s post was about my earliest memory. I revealed what that was.  If you missed it, then feel free to go back and check it out.

I can’t believe I completed this task! Thirty Days of ME!! They weren’t consecutive, but I finished it! When I first started, I just knew there was no way I was going to stick to this and complete that daunting list of questions. I did though! I did it! I did THAT!

Question:

One thing you’re excited for?

For this final day’s question, I decided to repeat one of the questions. Only because it is something that is prevalent to this moment. 

I’m excited that I’ve had the opportunity to share the things that I have with these thirty days. I’ve allowed myself to be open to whatever question was listed. If I changed a question, it was necessary for who I am as a person. I always said that no matter what was going on, I was going to remain true to myself. I made sure I did the same thing with this time of reflection and sharing that I had. 

I want to say thank you to every person that took a moment to read some of the insanity that I posted. It’s nice to know that someone is interested in what you have to say. I might do another as a kind of count down to the new year kind of deal. Stay tuned for that. 

I’m looking forward to sharing future works and more about myself in the future. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Mwah! 🙂

Day Thirty complete! Final day!

#EllieKeys 30 Days of me – Get to know the author – Day Twenty-nine

Ellie Keysget to know me

Today is Day Twenty-nine of my daily posts of something new about me or “Get to know the author”.

Yesterday’s post was about my first kiss and my first love. I revealed both meaningful moments.  If you missed it, then feel free to go back and check it out.

For some, today is the day that you get to celebrate the holiday because you had to work yesterday. To you, I say … Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy your day!

Question:

Your earliest memory?

Sheesh! There’s a question. My memory sucks. Lol! I tend to have trouble remembering the prior day’s clothing choice. Let’s see if I can think that far back. Kidding.

My earliest memory is performing for my mom and her friends. There is a song by El DeBarge called “I Like It” and it was one of my favorite songs. I used to have this powder blue dress that had layers of material from the chest down. When I moved in it, the dress swished from from side to side like Tina Turner’s skirts when she performed. At the end of the song, DeBarge has a part where he repeatedly sings the words “Like it.” That was the moment that I did a shimmy in time to his singing while pantomiming. 

I laugh about it all the time now. I was a little performer then. It did not carry over into my adult years. I am completely terrified of standing in front of groups and speaking or performing now. Amazing how things change.

Day Twenty-nine complete!

#EllieKeys 30 Days of me – Get to know the author – Day Twenty-eight

Ellie Keysget to know me

Today is Day Twenty-eight of my daily posts of something new about me or “Get to know the author”.

Yesterday’s post was about I would like to live and never visited. I revealed where that is.  If you missed it, then feel free to go back and check it out.

what-do-you-want-to-know

Question:

Your first love and first kiss?

For me, those are two different moments in my life. I’ll be honest, three moments come to mind when I think about this question. Two involving kissing and the third, my first love. 

My first kiss happened when I was six years old. I know, kind of young there. I was a tomboy then and usually hung out with my brother’s friends. We used to hang out, playing in the open field in the middle of the block. Every so often, we would play in the backyard of one of the friend’s house. We would play house and other games. The first boy I was kissed by was so nervous that he almost missed my lips and kissed my cheek. It was done quickly and I wasn’t expecting it. I ended up chasing him out of the backyard and punching him. LOL!

My first real kiss that I felt meant something happened when I was fourteen. It was with the guy that ended up being my first love. At the time of the kiss, I just liked him. The kiss let me know how much I really liked him because of how I felt when he kissed me. The tingling sensation that most romance novels speak of was what clued me in to what I felt for that boy. 

I felt so different when I was around him. He made me feel cherished, respected, and wanted. That boy made me smile every time I saw him. It was that way until the last time I saw him as my boy friend, the boy I thought I would spend the rest of my life knowing. I won’t go into how that day ended. I’ll leave you with the good of the moments I had with him. He gave me hope that my life would be good. It was a wonderful feeling and I still love him for that. He was the first boy to make me feel pretty. I will forever be grateful for that.  

Day Twenty-eight complete!

Question:

A place that I would like to live, but never visited?

I would sooo LOOOVVVE to live in Italy. No, I have never visited this place, but it looks so gorgeous. I’ve had friends and family visit. They send photos of the beauty and splendor of it. They talked about it with such adoration. I just know I would love it and be so inspired by all that is happening around me. The simple things would bring me joy and peace. There are a great many things that I love about living in Georgia. I just know that I’ll have that many things and more if I lived there.

#EllieKeys 30 days of me – Get to know the author – Day Twenty-six

Ellie Keysget to know me

Today is Day Twenty-six of my daily posts of something new about me or “Get to know the author”.

Yesterday’s post was about my feelings on the book world. I revealed what those were.  If you missed it, then feel free to go back and check it out.

what-do-you-want-to-know

Question:

Someone who fascinates me and why?

Fascinates? I wouldn’t actually use that word per se. I’m not actually “fascinated” by people. I feel like those that use that word have a bit more of a stalkerish tendency because they might be a little fanatical about the person. There are those that are intriguing to me. I’ll go with that. 

A person who intrigues me is Tamera Mowry-Housley.

There are some that wouldn’t recognize the name, but would recognize the face as one of the famous twins or the girl from that show back in the day.

I watched the Sister, Sister show as well as their reality show years later. Now, I watch Tamera on the daytime show The Real. 

The Real

I commend her for following her heart and living her life for herself and her family.

She’s one that stands by her beliefs and isn’t willing to conform just to please mainstream. I’ve enjoyed the shows that she’s been part of and found myself gravitating more to her. We have similar beliefs, from what she’s shared with the world, and I identified more with her. Thank you Tamera Mowry-Housley for being you!
