Hello! Well as some of you know I was nominated for the Liebster award. This award is passed around in the blogging community. For me, this is a huge achievement and makes me feel special. This award also would not be possible without you all supporting me, so this award is also for you guys! Round of applause to you all, give yourself a pat on the back. Also know that your support means the world to me! I can not begin to thank you enough!
The Liebster Award Rules are as followed:
1.) Post 11 facts about yourself. 2.) Answer the eleven questions your nominator asked in their post. 3.) Nominate 11 other bloggers of your choice. 4.) Come up with your own 11 questions for your nominees. 5.) Let your nominees know that they have been chosen. 6.) Link back to the person that chose you.
11 Facts About Myself:
1.) I am from Kansas, but currently live in North Carolina. 2.) I am married, have been for 3 years and together for almost 6 years. Crazy right? 3.) My mom and my husband are my two favorite travel buddies, I bring them everywhere with me when I travel. 4.) I have a condition called epilepsy and anxiety. I used to let it hold me back in life but now I do not let it. 5.) I have my bachelors and masters degree in Social Welfare, although currently I am a nanny for a wonderful family from New York. 6.) I have an unhealthy obsession with diet soda, Oreos and cheetos. I would only eat and drink those things if I could. 7.) I always have to have color in my outfit of the day, so you will never see me without it. 8.) I have been to 32 (going on 34 this weekend) of 50 states. 9.) I have a best friend that I met on a cruise ship. Weird way to meet someone right? I am totally good at making friends in the weirdest ways. 10.) I have two dogs, one is Savannah and the other Hailey. They are both adorable and a super big part of my life. 11.) I pack 3 to 5 months early for all trips that I go on, otherwise I forget everything I needed to pack in the first place.
Have you heard enough yet? Well here’s more about me.
1.) Tea or Coffee? Tea! I can’t stand the smell of coffee, it hurts my stomach. 2.) Favorite genre and why? Romance novels are my favorite because wait for it… I’m a hopeless romantic. 3.) Which do you prefer, writing by hand or typing (let’s say for a short story)? I prefer writing by hand. I am not the best typist on a computer keyboard. I can text like nobodies business but I cannot type well. Crazy right? 4.) Why did you begin blogging? I began blogging because I wanted to inspire others through my travels, as well as my stories. I have anxiety and epilepsy, as mentioned earlier so I used to let them hold me back. I finally came to the realization that I shouldn’t do that and I should achieve goals within my limitations. 5.) What’s your favorite curse used by Gordon Ramsey, provided you have watched him before? Who? I am completely lost as to who Gordon Ramsey is. Guess I need to add this to my list of things to check out. 6.) Sword or Bow? I don’t trust myself with either. But if I had to pick it would be a bow. I love Katniss Everdene, so I would aspire to be her with her bow. 7.) The one place in the world you would most love to go? This is hard to choose one. So I will go with two, Australia and Paris. I have always been obsessed with both of these places. Both for different reasons, but both are high priority on my bucket list. 8.) Where do you see your blog in the next, say, two years? Within the next two years, I hope to get my own domain name and website set up. I hope to inspire more readers and gather more followers. I hope to add tons more blog posts to it and etc. I see high hopes for my blog within the next couple years. 9.) What does the quote Courage is grace under pressure mean to you? (Hemingway Quote). Ooooo tough question. I believe it means not giving up when things get tough. Not letting life get the best of you. 10.) That one point in time you would most love to live in, if even for a day? Oooo this is tough. I went on a cruise once and had the time of my life. It is one of the only times I can really remember not wanting it to end. I could live that cruise for the rest of my life and be happy. 11.) Do you think it is possible to ever be 100% satisfied with one’s own work? I believe that it is possible, but I am my own worst enemy. I struggle daily with not being satisfied with my own work.
There are many other great blogs I would add, but I know that some are down for rebuild at the moment. I apologize in advance.
