On My Nomination…

Hey Everyone,

I was nominated twice (in less than a week) for the Liebster award. This just means that some very lovely blogger friends of mine have taken the time to connect with beginning bloggers such as myself.  The award was created to give recognition to the nominee and thank them for their inspiration to others. I love this because it helps build relationships…something that I am already passionate about. So, thank you Cheyanne and Kerril for thinking of me :-).

I know there are specific rules for accepting this award (answer 11 questions, nominate 5 more bloggers), but I’ve always been a little bit rebellious lol. So, I plan to answer a few questions from each person who has so graciously nominated me. Also, I’ll keep my eye out for awards in the future, to be able to spread love and support all of you as well.

Questions:

1.What do you love most about yourself?

I love that I am able to remain optimistic (on most days) and find the positives about my day.  I remind myself constantly that I have wonderful family, friends, a boyfriend who still considers me a gem…I’m on cloud 9!!

2.Are you good at resolutions?  

How do you stay motivated to get them done?

I crave resolutions!! I admit that I feel somewhat unsettled when I leave a task partially completed. It’s a constant reminder that I don’t need to have. I’m motivated to have a clear head, so this is what keeps me pushing forward.

3.Where would you love to travel?

I would love to visit Paris. Anyone who knows me understands my fear of flying. I’m uncomfortable being on a plane for that long…but this is a sacrifice that I am willing to make. Visiting Paris is on my bucket list.

4.What is your favourite movie of all time?

Grease!! Hands down. I love everything about this movie. I love musicals, and I know every word to each song.

5.What is your favourite kind of music?

I love R&B.  Ne-Yo is my favorite artist.  So, if he changed genres…I’m sure I would too. 🙂

6.Do you have kids?

Zero. But, one day I hope to have like 6 of the little rugrats…lol. Ok, maybe like 3. I have five siblings, so I appreciate the relationships that can form from bigger families.

Here are the official rules if any of you are interested in participating in this Liebster award.

Link back to my site (or whomever’s), answer whatever questions you want to answer, nominate more people and create new questions for them.

Thanks again ladies!

Happy Connecting!!

Connect With Me//Over a Cup of Coffee

Hey Blog Family,

We had such a great turnout for the last Mix and Mingle…so, it’s time for another one!  Let’s take a moment to say hi to someone new, and possibly gain a long-term friend!

Let’s pretend that we are sharing a cup of coffee (or some other fancy drink if coffee isn’t your thing).  Over this cup of coffee, we will share details about our week with one another.  This idea was inspired by the Writing 101 course that I’ve signed up for via WordPress.

As always, thanks for joining! Now, let’s grab a cup of coffee!

If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that I’ve recently wrote an Open Letter To My Father.  I’ve never been so transparent before with him.  I was able to share most of my thoughts and feelings that I’ve been keeping safe since childhood.  My father and I have grown much closer over the last couple of years, so I felt that we were in a better place to be able to communicate more freely and open.  In response to the letter, he let me know that I wasn’t actually a headache for him…lol. He shared some personal feelings of his own from these earlier experiences. Nothing but smiles from me! I am even trying to plan for a family reunion…something we’ve never done before with my father’s side of the family.

If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that in about a week, I will be traveling to Mexico for 7 days!! I am excited for the well deserved vacation, the food, the activities, and dancing!  I’ve been trying my best to eat healthier, and become more physically active.  I do worry that my healthy lifestyle will suffer…just a smidge, because I’ll be in such an exotic place.  Anyone who knows me, understands how serious I am about my food.  I’ll plan  to do some outside activities to keep my heart rate up…in exchange for eating any and everything, and relaxing on most days.

If we were drinking coffee right now, I’d let you know that while I’m away in Mexico, I will miss blogging as often as I’d like.  I’ve honestly grown to look forward to connecting with all of you.  So many opportunities to meet such wonderful people, and become inspired by your posts! But, I’ll be happy to update all of you on how awesome this trip has been when I return!

In recognition of today’s Mix and Mingle, I ask that you do the following:

  1. When you share an update, begin with “If I were drinking coffee right now”.
  2. Leave a link to your blog so others can check out your space.
  3. Want to share this post with others? Be sure to pingback and reblog this post.

*Share as little or as much as you’d like*

Happy Sharing!

Connect With Me//RECAP

Hey Everyone!


Just wanted to thank all of you for stopping by the first Sunday Connect With Me series! Each of you have  truly made this a memorable experience.

I also wanted to encourage you to check out the space of a few bloggers who were worried that they were late for the party. Better late than never right?!  As, my new blogger friend Laura says, she was “fashionably on time”!

Here are some of my new friends who I also want you to check out their blogs to connect with them too!

Thanks for joining! Enjoy and Happy Monday!

~XOXO
