The Liebster Award*


Recently, I was nominated by Kaeleen of {With Dignity + Coffee} for The Liebster Award! I am honored to be a nominee. What is this award you may ask? Well here are the rules:

1. Link back to the person that nominated you for the award.
2. You must write 11 facts about yourself so people can learn more about you.
3. You also have to answer the 11 questions given by the nominator.
4. After completing this, you should nominate 11 other bloggers that have under 200 followers {I got my nominee stats from bloglovin under blog analytics} and then give them 11 questions of your choice. However, you cannot nominate your nominator. 
5. You have to let your nominees know that they've been nominated and give them access to the link to find out more about the award.

Sounds fun! So here are the questions that Kaeleen asked me and my corresponding answers:

What's your favorite thing about blogging?  
My favorite thing about blogging is definitely the sense of community that I get from it. I meet new people through The Peony Project and blog link-ups and it's so much fun! I also love having something that I can design and record things I love or have done. 
Do you have any siblings?
Yes, I have an older half-sister named Miranda, a 20 year old brother named Trevor, and a half-brother named Nathanael, and a half-sister named Ava.
What's your favorite show?
I don't have one favorite show, but lately I've been watching Bates Motel, New Girl, Parks and Rec, basically anything on Food Network, and Once Upon A Time. They're all great. Also I love Community and  Sherlock. There are so many good ones!
Biggest fears?
I am terrified of spiders. I hate them so much. I also hate walking on grates on the sidewalks in cities. 
If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Potatoes. Mashed, baked, diced, boiled, sliced and fried, patties, browns, etc. I love potatoes!
Are you a coffee or tea kind of gal?
Tough one! I love them both but I am slightly addicted to coffee. I have at least one cup a day, usually two (and sometimes 3 or 4) and I have tea usually 2-3 times a week.
What's your favorite social media platform?
I love Instagram, but as far as networking and reaching people, twitter usually does the trick for me. But I also love Tumblr. I've had it for about 4 years and its pretty wonderful.
What's your go-to nail polish color?
Mint green or black. Depends on the day.
Top five favorite albums?
Oh man. Don't do this to me. I love music too much to only have five! I'll write my top five currently most listened to:
Wet-Wet
Tremors- SOHN
In Rolling Waves- The Naked and Famous
Blue Film- Lo-Fang
The White Album (Remix Project)- Hillsong United
Are you into sports? Who's your team?
No I am not very athletic so as far as playing, I'd rather sit on the sidelines.
I really LOVE going to Flyer's games (hockey) and I like watching soccer too!
What is your favorite quote?
Another hard one! I list my favorite three (as of today, lol)
"Just living is not enough… one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower." // Hans Christian Andersen
"Don't let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big." // Anonymous
"Don’t allow pain to rob you of a future full of love, because joy and happiness are too beautiful to not love." // T.B. LaBerge

And now, here are 11 facts about me: 
1. I love art. Painting, crafting, doodles, design. It's all wonderful.
2. I know almost every single word from the movie Aladdin. In fact, I know several Disney movies by heart.
3. I am going to be a Senior in college this year (eep!)
4. I love snail mail.
5. So far I've named all my vehicles after Batman villains (Harvey Dent was the 1st and Waylon Jones is my current one.) Look them up if you don't know who they are!
6. I guess that one led to me being a slight nerd. Yes, I love superheroes and star wars and legos and video games.
7. My favorite gaming console is the N64. (But I am in no way a gamer!)
8. I am dating my best friend, Mark Gettis (brother of Betsy Gettis from Heavens To Betsy). We are so good for each other and we always make the most of every situation. He understands me and loves me like no one else does or can. I am blessed to have such a gracious, silly, loving man to hold my heart.
9. I own a 4 foot radio from 1942. It's probably my favorite thing.
10. I hope to live in Brooklyn, Portland, and Philadelphia for at least some parts of my life. Yes, I want to experience that city life.
11. I love travel. I have an ever-growing bucket list of places I want to visit. The world is so big!! 

Now, the moment you've all been waiting for, my nominations!!
