I am lucky enough to be nominated again (!) for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Laura at Modern in the Mitten nominated me this time. Head over to her blog to check out her life lessons, follow her home renovation, read about fun DIY projects she’s taken on, and how she manages her family and three Australian Shepherds. (Kudos to you girl – my dream is to have a home full, but one Aussie keeps me on my toes enough!)
Rules to follow if you are nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award
What energizes you and brings you excitement?
Food. I love how food not only provides you nutrition to stay alive, but gives us so much more in life. Our social lives are revolved around food, amazing conversation revolves around food, and having a great dining experience can modify your mood instantaneously.
What is one thing you’d tell other new bloggers?
Don’t think that minimal work can be put into your blog if you want it to be successful. It’s hard and it’s time-consuming, but it’s worth it. Also – network! Connect with other bloggers on social media. They’re amazing resources and will be your support system as you take on this crazy journey!
What’s your hidden talent?
I’m not sure if I’d call it a “hidden talent,” but most people don’t know I love playing the saxophone. If I didn’t live in an apartment where I’d bother several floors of people, I’d absolutely still be playing. I also took 7 years of guitar lessons, but they didn’t stick. Sorry, mom.
What food do you like the least and why?
Oh my. Um, probably mushrooms or jello. It’s solely for the texture. I have an aversion to the texture of those two things, so I just can’t eat either as much as I want to try.
If you had to choose 3 adjectives to describe yourself, what 3 would you choose and why?
Positive, quirky, driven. Positive because I tend to always see the positive in any type of situation. Quirky because honestly, I’m weird as hell, but not in a secret serial killer type of way. Driven because when I want something, I don’t stop until I get it.
What is your favorite subject to blog about?
Well, obviously anything travel related. But more specifically, I love writing about behind-the-scenes travel content. Like my most recent post of 10 Ways to Practice Self Care While Traveling. It’s easy to talk about destinations and your time, but I love the process of digging deep into my thoughts to write these.
Is there a movie quote you say often, if so what is and what movie is it from?
Not a movie, but I quote ‘The Office’ a lot. Like, an unhealthy amount. I also tend to just quote random movies followed by a, “Name that movie!” shout.
What is your spirit animal and why?
Hmmm. That’s tough. Probably an Australian Shepherd. Always nervous/anxiety-ridden, need to be in control, and likes to keep all the ducks in a nice little row. When I’m upset, you know because I’m loud about it, but I’m very loving to those I trust.
Who or where would you want to haunt if you were a ghost?
Oh. I like this one. I would be such an annoying ghost. I think I would haunt the people that drove me nuts in life. The first people that come to mind are exes. Yep, super petty, but I want to annoy the hell out of them and drive them crazy. Next, I would probably come around to haunt people that just drove me up a wall my whole life. I’ll take my after life as a revenge life.
What’s something you’ve done that you recommend everyone try at least once?
Work in the service industry. When you’re a server, you know damn well who has worked in the industry and who has hasn’t. Everyone should spend one month out of their lives having to wait tables and they would absolutely change the way they dine.
