Liebster Award


A couple of weeks ago I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Kelly over at HonestMe363.  Kelly has been a strong supporter of mine and I am honored to accept this award and pass it along to other deserving bloggers as well!  Thank you for thinking of me Kelly 🙂

The rules:

  1. Make a post thanking and linking the person who nominated you.
    Include the Liebster Award sticker in the post too.
  2. Nominate 5 -10 other bloggers who you feel are worthy of this award. Let them know they have been nominated by commenting on one of their posts. You can also nominate the person who nominated you.
  3. Ensure all of these bloggers have less than 200 followers.
  4. Answer the eleven questions asked to you by the person who nominated you, and make eleven questions of your own for your nominees or you may use the same questions.
  5. Lastly, COPY these rules in your post.

My nominations are below. I selected these bloggers because they have been strong supporters of my blog and I am inspired by their expression of truth and vulnerability in their writings. Check out their sites – you’ll be glad you did!

A Healers Story

Dream Little Big

Awaken from the Dream

My Alternate Universe

My Fitness Talk and More

1.If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?

Oprah Winfrey.  I’d make my pitch to get Destination Enlightenment on her network!  Or least try to get a correspondent role on Super Soul Sunday!

2.What is the simplest thing that makes you smile?

Just being together with my husband and two children when everything is relaxed and we’re just hanging out being us.

3.What is your favorite season and why?

That is a toss up between summer and fall!  I love the warmth of summer and the energy I feel from the light of the long days.  But then, I so relish the fall, for the routine it brings and with the cooler weather I like to recharge and stay in and make cozy food.  The fall is my favorite season to dress for.  But summer has the best activities.

4.What is your all time favorite food?

I really like Authentic Mexican food.  I love the hot spicy dishes, salsa, mole, margarita’s…

5.What song gets you pumped?

That one changes, but for now it would have to be Uptown Funk 🙂

6.What was the most inspiring book you have ever read?

That would depend on the time of my life. There are many.  I really enjoyed the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho.

7.Any other interests other than writing/blogging?

I enjoy cooking and baking, staying fit,  dabbling in my small garden,  spending time with my friends and family, reading, shopping, and getting out of town!

8.Do you believe in love at first sight?

Yes, because I’ve seen it happen.  I believe it is rare and usually lust at first sight, but I do believe my sister and her husband are the perfect example of love at first sight.  They eloped young after a month of knowing each other it took a while before everyone agreed upon what they knew at first site. They are still together and happy almost 20 years later!

9.Are you multi lingual or do you know parts of another language?

I took a couple of years of French in high school.  I wished I would have taken all four years.  I remember a few words though 😉

10.Who do you look up to or who inspires you?

My dad has passed on, but his spirit still inspires me.  His memory reminds me to never get too comfortable in life because if you do you may become complacent.  He lived his life to the fullest never wanting to miss an experience.  He was a resourceful man and a hardworking dreamer, but chased his dreams down and made them a reality. He believed anybody could make their aspirations a reality if they worked hard enough.

11. What do you enjoy most about blogging?

The fact that I am getting my thoughts out of my head and sharing them here and that people are actually reading and commenting!  I am having  conversations and meeting like minded people here that I wouldn’t get to in everyday life.  I love the truth that people speak on their blogs.  We get to see who these bloggers really are 🙂

Thank you so much for reading.  Happy blogging!

Yours Truly,
