The Special Blogger Award

 

Again…I’m such a slacker…

I’m super late responding to this honor and it’s not because I’m not so tremendously grateful. Life have just gotten ahead me yet again! I am thankful and love doing these awards! With all that said lets’ get to it!

  • List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award in your post/or on your blog.
  • Notify the nominees about it by commenting on one of their blog posts.
  •  

THE QUESTIONS:

1.Tell us something about yourself that will make our jaws drop? 

Wow…Sadly, I’m probably pretty lame. 🤓 I do think that I am really funny and take pride in being able to make people laugh even at my own expensive. I don’t get embarrass easily because I make fun of myself all the time. I prefer a burger and a cold beer over a fancy restaurant with wine any day. I hate dressing up or dress shoes. Jeans, sweat pants and  T-shirt with flip-flops or my favorite shoes, P.F Flyer! That’s me…Take it or leave it!

2.Do you collect?

Not sure I understand the question. So I’ll guess…

I did do the whole Willow-tree thing but now it’s journals and notebook with pens that write really well. I also like mugs that feel good in my hands. If I could collect dogs…I would.

3. What’s your Favorite Quote?

Female Entreprenuer Quotes | 40 Quotes for the Ultimate GirlBoss

4. Have you ever punched someone in the face?

Oh wow! Well… unfortunately I have done this before to a few people and now my hands look stupid now because of it. It was ridiculousness and dumb…thank goodness I wants part of the facebook, Instagram world.

5.Which places in the world would you like to visit?

For sure I would have to say one place would be Ireland: Drombeg Stone Circle, County Cork, Ireland | by zelen.8208

The other would be Italy/Venice:Are you heading to Italy then you must find the best things to do and see in Venice! #italy #venice #travel

 

6.What makes you forget about everything around you?

The first answer is writing. Getting all my thoughts on the paper or typing them out and creating is good for me. I can get lost in a good book too but lately I’ve found myself losing time in the story tellings of Mike Rowe’s  The Way I Heard It Podcast. It’s very interesting, the way he surprises you at the end of every story!  Logo

7. What’s your favorite season? Why?

I have always and forever loved autumn. I usually live in place where the summers are super hot and winter is super cold so you pray for spring and fall. The colors and beautiful and air smells good. Everything right down to the food is perfect. I like when I can wear a hoodie all the time but still not need a real coat. That is perfect for me.

Hi everyone, you all know how much I love to fall so, Here we go with another fall post by moi! I just want to let you all know that if this post sounds like it was written in a bit of a hurry its because it kinda was. Here's the thing So I had…

8. Are you an Introvert or Extravert?

I think I’m a mix of both but leaning heavy on the introvert. When I have had a “peoplely” day, I really have to be alone to recharge. It takes everything out of me to be with lots of people. Yet, I do like socializing with others and experiencing life with other people. Maybe large groups aren’t my thing? 🤷🏻‍♀️

9. Why in the 21st century with all this technology do we still have people who die because of lack of food and water?

This not a tech problem… this is a people problem and I’ll just leave this right here.

10.Have you ever donated something to someone who has less than you?

Yes all the time.

11.Do you have a Boy/girlfriend or wife or husband?

I do! I’m married and have been for 15 years and together for almost 18 years this September!

The second was to connect with other writers, bloggers, awesome people out there in world! I have grown so much because of this blog and because of other amazing bloggers! Blessed!

What a surprise! What an honor! I can’t tell you how much this means to someone like me, who has just a small little blog, with a tiny little following to get recognized! This is simply the sweetest things!

Okay! Let’s get down to business! I was nominated by the sweet and wonderful Racheal’s Novels.  I try to keep up on every blog that I follow but we all know that is an impossible task! But I will tell 100% trust me, her blog is a goodie! Please check it out!

Thank you so very much for nominating me! I am so humbled and thankful for every award, mention and all the love! What an honor! Thank you!

So this is how this works ( I think)

RULE #2: Copy the “Awesome Impact Award” into your WordPress media and insert it in your post

RULE #3: Talk about an incident that impacted your life in a really positive way

RULE #4: Finally, nominate 10 other bloggers for the award

The incidents that impacted my life in a really positive way?

 

Moving away from Colorado was hands down the most positive thing that every happen to me. I was in a very negative situation in I live there. Once moved away I free to really live my best life and discover who I really and I love myself…all of my. I didn’t have to worry about judgments from others or people influencing my choices. Being away I have really grown into my own person! I have never been happier or freer! I would have never started to write, which is my passion if would not have left! I get to be the Mom, the wife, daughter, sister and just freaking human-being I want to be now! I feel blessed! God is so good! I am so thankful I had faith and still have faith in His plans for me!

I have to include giving my life to Christ because without Christ I can do nothing but with everything. All the Glory goes to God! I am nothing without His Mercys and Grace over my life.

What is your favorite feature of yourself?

Physical, I am strong! But really it’s my ability to feel so deeply and connect to people on a deeper level that I love and am so proud of!

What would you like to explore, the ocean or space?

Both! I am a lover of information and knowledge!

What’s your favorite time of day? 

I have two…Early morning with my hot cup of butter coffee as the sun is coming up, this is my prayer time. Then later after the kids have gone to bed and it’s blog time!
