And the nominees are…me??? Are you kidding? I am so thrilled and in disbelief to share with you that I have been nominated for a Liebster Award! The Liebster Award is an award given to new bloggers to recognize their hard work in blogging. This award only exists online and is incredibly humbling as a newbie! You must be nominated by a fellow blogger, which in itself is an honor. To have your content and effort appreciated by a person who does what you do makes me feel like a winner! A big thank you to Withlovefromp for the nomination! I so admire her work on her own blog, which makes her nomination all the more special to me.
1. Give the blogger that nominated you a special shout out
2. Answer 11 questions given to you by the person that nominated you
3. Give up to 11 random facts about yourself
4. Nominate up to 11 other bloggers and let them know
The questions given to me to answer:
1. What is something you learned only after it was too late?
That people will show you who they are, believe them the first time. This is a Maya Angelou quote that is one of my mantras. Second chances are sometimes warranted but after that..let go!
2. Tell me about the best day of your life:
If not sure I could choose just one! The days my children were born. Each birthday they have. The day I meet my husband. The day I married the charming fella.
3. If you could have one superpower, what would it be?
Being able to fly sounds pretty cool. In my current life super speed would have its advantages, there are never enough hours in the day to get everything done!
4. If you were trapped on a desert island what 3 things could you not live without?
A blanket, a phone to a least be able to talk to the people I love, sunscreen
5. What is your ultimate blogging dream?
That’s a tough one, it’s an evolving dream as I go. Right now my dream is to keep improving my content and to get that content out to as many as are interested!
6. What is the meaning of life?
The meaning of my life is my family. To love them and be loved by them is my greatest gift.
7. If you could be a fly on the wall, what would you do and where would you be?
I’d like to be able to go into my children’s classrooms and watch them learn. I’d love to see them interact with friends and teachers without them knowing I’m there.
8. What is your biggest purchase?
That’s an easy one, my home!!
9. What advice would you give your younger self?
Stay true and genuine to who you are, don’t feel the need to fit in. We were all born to stand out not blend in with the crowd.
10. Name a secret you’ve been scared/embarrassed to tell anyone:
No, thanks!! Seriously, my secret was that I wanted to blog, this secret was only revealed to those that know me best when I started blogging, I never mentioned it.
11. Describe yourself in 3 words:
Mom, wife, Leo (this says a lot)
