Let The Sunshine In
My smile was as bright as the sun when I received a message from fellow blogger at
http://ninidee.wordpress.com/ Writing Like Crazy yesterday presenting me with the Sunshine Blogger Award. In accepting this award, I am required to answer a series of questions and then pay it forward to other awesome bloggers who I feel deserve the award too. Then, I link my nominees to this post and comment on their blog letting them know of their nomination. Below are my answers and the blogs I have nominated.
What is your favorite Christmas movie?
Well I must say I love to watch all the classic animated Christmas specials with my children. They bring back warm, fuzzy memories of my childhood. But my all time favorite has to be "It's A Wonderful Life". Who doesn't love George and his journey in this great film. It has some sad memories connected to it for me (I found out my grandfather died when I was watching it one Christmas Eve), but it still holds a special place in my heart.
What is your favorite flower?
I have a few favorite flowers for different reasons. My favorite flower scent is lilacs. The flower I love the look of is gerber daisies. My favorite summer blooms are honeysuckle and black-eyed Susan's (they remind me of my father-in-law).
What is your favorite non-alcoholic beverage?
I absolutely love fresh squeezed lemonade. My mother-in-law makes the best!
What is your passion?
If I was asked this ten years ago, my answer would have been diferent. A few months ago I went to a medium just for fun with a group of friends. I asked if my hobby was something I should persue. She said, "It isn't a hobby for you, it's your passion". She hit the nail right on the head. Writing is a passion for me. It's something I've been doing as a hobby most of my life, but now it's so much more. A writer is who I truly am.
What is your favorite time of year?
The spring, it's such a beautiful time of year where I live. The flowers start blooming, the weather gets warmer, and summer is right around the corner.
What is your favorite time of day?
I used to be a morning person, but now I find myself enjoying the evenings more. I love it when all teh work for the day is done and i can relax and curl up with a good book.
What is your favorite physical activity?
I love to walk. It's a great workout and relaxes my mind.
What is your favorite vacation?
Anywhere I can go with my family (immediate and extended) and create special memories is where I want to be.
