I am SO honored.

First of all, this weekend was pretty crazy. I’m sorry I went MIA! My little girl ended up sick and we spent quite a bit of time in the doctors office, which also landed me a cold. 😦 BUT! We did make it out of the house yesterday and we are all starting to feel much better ❤


These two awards I received over the weekend were HUGE encouragements to get back on WordPress and thank all of you bloggers who have encouraged me through this journey!


The first was from my inspiring friend Lori at Creating Beauty in the Kitchen. (Thank you so much, Lori!) Really, I wish I could give her this award because she is so loyal and always has something encouraging to say! Everyone needs to click over to her page and be blessed by her amazing recipes and crafts.

This award is about loyalty, and I never expected to find such wonderful, loyal, people through blogging–but I did! I am truly blessed. The type of dragon loyalty blogger is the one who makes sure to stop by, leave likes and comments, and just let you know they’re there with you on this journey. I am honored that you feel this way about me Lori!

The rules for this award are simple…give 7 facts about yourself, thank the person who nominated you, nominate bloggers, and let them know you nominated them.

Here are my seven facts:

  1. I am related to Walt Disney.
  2. I love all things Christmas.
  3. I’ve never broken a bone.
  4. I played soccer every minute from kindergarten through freshman year of college.
  5. I have a huge crush on my husband.
  6. I love cocacola slurpees (it’s what got me through my pregnancy!)
  7. I’m living my dream job as a stay at home mommy ❤

I nominate!

  1. Reva at Strings of Soulfulness
  2. Nishita at Walkingtomydreams13
  3. Laura at Humbly Growing
  4. I Prefer Deep Blues and Sea Foam Greens
  5. Natalie at BrennerBunch


The second award was from a blogging friend that has always been a joy, Reva at Strings of Soulfulness. (Thank you! You always write so elegantly, and inspire me to go deeper in creativity. I am so honored by your presence on my blog and I always look forward to seeing your posts in my reader!) She has a heart of gold and an instant smile on your face. She has such a graceful vulnerability to her work. The emotions never fail to flood out!

Her questions for me:

  1. How do you define your SELF? Hmm… Self is the you without everything that has been thrown on you by others. It is the purest you. 
  2. What inspires you in life? The Bible, and those in my life who always have a word of encouragement.
  3. What is your most desired dream? To have a large family, that all loves Jesus. 
  4. Are you a private person or social or selectively social? A social person. I love having others in my life. I love ‘doing life’ with friends!
  5. What is that you dislike in others? Negativity. It makes me hurt to see others this way.
  6. How satisfied are you with your life? Very. I truly am so blessed. 
  7. When was the last time you encouraged someone? A couple minutes ago.. 
  8. What makes you go crazy? Having to make small decisions… please just choose! 🙂
  9. What makes you trust someone? Vulnerability. 
  10. What is that something which you cannot live without? Jesus. 
  11. How do you feel when someone nominates you for any award? Encouraged! Alive! ❤
