The Liebster Award

Social media is a funny thing, it can be really bad or really good.  In this case it is really good because I've been nominated for The Liebster Award from Melissa of Posh Nails.  Woo hoo!!!  Thank you that is so very kind of you!!

What is The Liebster Award?  Well, the answer is that this is the internet and like the old game of telephone the rules aren't always clear.  I'm going to use the rules that Melissa used since she nominated me.  The rules from her blog are:
  • Thank and link the person who nominated me
  • Answer the questions given by the nominator
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers and link their blogs (I'm going to ignore this rule.  Sorry!)
  • Create 11 new questions for my nominees
  • Then notify everyone who's been nominated via social media
I think these are mostly do-able rules (I'll struggle a little with the 11 nominations but I believe in myself.  You can giggle now).  If you want to try to figure out which rules you think are right or official this link about sums it up.

I think this award is great because the internet is the vast place filled with what would seem like an over-saturation of people starting blogs, websites and YouTube channels.  I mean I have this tiny little blip on the internet where people read about my random brain dumps of whatever I feel like writing about and yet there are people who come and read it.  There are so many creative people in the world that just have gotten sucked into doing what they "are supposed" to do that I think it has stunted the creativity and imagination of who we can be.  

I really love that this blog let's me be a tad bit creative because I know that I am a creative person but I realize that I am limited in what I am able to due because of other things.  Yes, I could be more creative now but I know that we all get the same amount of time it's just about how we split it up.  I look at time like a jar of marbles.  Like this...

Haha!!  Not these Marbles!  More like these...

Enough of the babbling, on to the real part of the post.  Here are the 11 questions from Melissa:

  1. What is your blog about and why did you start it?
  2. What’s your favorite vacation place?
  3. If you were stranded on a desert island, what’s the one thing you couldn't live without?
  4. Do you prefer to wear nail polish or not bother with it?
  5. List three values that are important to you in your family/life.
  6. What do you like about where you are living now?
  7. Tell me about one of your hobbies.
  8. What do you like to do for fun?
  9. Name one book that made a huge impact on your life.
  10. What kind of music do you like to listen to?
  11. How do you relax and unwind?
1)  This blog is about whatever I want it to be.  I've been trying to figure out that question since I started.  It is a combination of random thoughts from my head, things I want my daughter to know, reminders to myself, encouragement and my life.  It is my place to be a creative outlet that doesn't require too much additional equipment other than my computer and some pictures.
2)  My favorite vacation place is any place with water.  I especially love the beach and clean sand but there is no one place that has been above and beyond the other places that I have been.  I have learned (and still have to remind myself) that I need to be in this moment.  I could tell you the best parts of many vacations so really just being with my favorite people is my favorite vacation place.
3)  My initial thought is to say water but I can find water so my next must have would be my family.  I N-E-E-D them.  
4)  I love nail polish!  But... I can't paint my own nails.  When I do it it looks like a three year old did them (I'm sure there are three year-olds that can paint better than me).  I'm so bad that one of the very few times I did paint my own nails that my husband told me, "It's okay dear, you can pay someone to do that."  I just got fired from my own nails by my husband...
5)  Trust, faith and hard-work
6)  I love that I am close to family.  We aren't afraid to move away from them but right now, they are such a huge help that I don't know what I'd do without them.
7)  Photography.  It needs work but it is fun.  
8)  This blog is becoming to be quite a bit of fun but I also like to find ways to be with my family that don't involve just being home.  Although we have quite a bit of fun there too.
9)  Oh the Places You Will Go! by Dr. Seuss

10)   I love R&B and Soul but really anything that's playing.
11)   Cooking is usually a time for me to relax and unwind.  I enjoy spending time in the kitchen creating things and who doesn't love food?!
