9 at 9 - An Interview with...

I am really loving this feature!!! I'm learning so much about my fellow blogging friends and I hope you are too.  This week I'm pleased to introduce you to my blog friend Olfa from Our Family World

1. Tell us a little bit about your blog:

My son was born with severe strabismus (crossed eyes). He went through a lot: from surgery to therapy! It was hard to balance work, money and my son's needs. I wanted to share my journey with other parents and help them achieve some family balance. OurFamilyWorld is about sharing tips: how to balance your budget, what to cook for dinner, how to have a fun date with your partner and how to make things work.

2. How long have you been blogging and what do you love about it?
I have been blogging for over a year. I LOVE it. At first, I was kind of shy to express my thoughts and share my ideas. But my readers showed me the way via their comments and interactions. I love connecting with readers! I love connecting with other bloggers.

3. Who is the person or group behind the blog?
I (Olfa Turki) am the founder but this blog is a team work. Ritat Duponty, Amy Dell and Janelle Pooler are an important part of the team

4. What hobbies/interests do you have?
I love cooking. I am always looking for new healthy recipes to try. I enjoy skiing in the winter and biking in the summer. They are great family activities.

5. If you could invite 4 people (real or fictional, living or dead) to a dinner party, who would you invite and what would you serve?
George Clooney, Eminem (the rapper), Rihanna and Adele. I would serve a roasted chicken with rice, a Greek salad and a cheeseckae.

6. I can’t live without…
Chocolate!! LOL. I am addicted. Seriously, I can't live without my kids and husband. They mean the world to me. They are my inspiration and my support.

7. Something people would be surprised to know about me is…
I am afraid of elevators. I was stuck in an elevator for 30 minutes when I was 15.
