Welcome to my second Feature Friday. This week we have Alexandra from ALEXACEZA
I have only recently discovered her blog so it’s nice to learn some things about her too. So these are the questions I’ve come up with.
How long have you liked horses and how old were you when you first rode one?
Ever since I was little and could talk for that matter, were about horses. I loved how beautiful, powerful and graceful they looked like. It’s funny because both my mom and dad were surprised by my passion since they never mentioned riding or horses to me (they have never been on one themselves). Eventually as I grew older, they both figured that I wouldn’t stop talking about horses so they finally got me lessons when I was 8 years old.
What 3 things are you most grateful for?
1)My mom – my mom because she taught me to think and look at the world differently. She taught me to always look at the brighter side of life and to look forward to the experiences you want to happen.
2) My horse – I am very much grateful for the horse I have now since the previous ones I have owned always had some sort of health issue I was dealing with at the time and couldn’t ride much either. Orion is super healthy and has never given me any issues! I can rest my head at night knowing he is happy and healthy munching on some hay with his paddock mates! Plus the fact, I can go and ride whenever I want to.
3) My Life – I know this is a very vague answer but truly, I am very grateful and happy for my life. I know that I have been through my ups and downs, I have been through crazy situations but I have always come out stronger than before and much happier to have been lead through those experiences to where I am now. I was always so scared of getting older and not achieving things how I wanted to achieve them, but now I realize that sometimes we need to go through this life down a different path than we envisioned.
Where is your favourite destinations. Home & away?
Hmm, I can’t say I have been to many places yet but so far my favourite place away is Germany. I went there 2 years ago to Munich, Germany and it was just so beautiful! I love the culture, the food and the architecture. Everyone was so lovely, most people spoke English so it made me feel a lot more comfortable! The food, I honestly couldn’t get enough of, YUM and the sites were just stunning, every corner you would turn was so beautiful! I would highly recommend Germany.
At home, I love going to Niagara on the Lake in Ontario. It is one of my favourite places when I just want to get out of the city and go to a cute little town. It super cute and small, you can walk the little town in about 20 minutes! Try the cute cafes and restaurants, they are so worth it! Plus the lake is just a 10 minute walk from the city and it is so beautiful to sit in the park and just watch lake Ontario. I love it!
Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet. I was always a very creative person and for whatever reason I stopped being creative for quite some time. I would always see someone drawing or painting or just using their creativity somehow and it made me feel sad so I needed to figure out a way how to use my creative talents once again! I would love to draw and paint but I am a perfectionist at heart and am very hard on myself when the drawing doesn’t come out the way I saw it in my head. So I needed to use my creativity differently.
I also wanted to document my life somehow and be able to look back at it and give positive advice to folks. Blogging was just the perfect way to get started! I love how I challenge myself to think of what content would be useful and what people would love to read. It’s just a way for me to mentally “get out” of the office and into my own space.
