Minelle was kind enough to nominate me for the Sunshine Award. The idea is for bloggers to present the sun-loving flower to other bloggers who “creatively and positively inspire others in the blogosphere.” I can’t think of a better description of Minelle, she is forever kind and supportive to everyone. I thank her for the nomination and for her friendship.
(1) Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2) Complete the Q&A below in your blog post.
(3) Pass on the award to 10-12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.
Favorite Color: Purple – it’s a bright, fun color. It makes me happy.
Favorite Animal: I worked for a vet for eight years. I love all kinds of animals, but these days I choose cats as the animal I’m currently willing to have in my home.
Favorite Number: Eight, don’t know why. I remember liking it always.
Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink: Sundrop, a soft drink most haven’t heard of.
Facebook or Twitter: I like Facebook pretty well, but I’m not hooked on it as I am in blogland. I enjoy being able to keep up with my kids through it and some old friends. But I’m usually more of a lurker. I don’t tweet.
Your Passion: I have more passions than I used to. I have passion for Nick, for our marriage – more now than in the past. I am passionate in my love for my children, Mollie, LJ and Collin. I also have a passion for blogging and the friends I’ve made through my blogs. And lastly I have a passion for writing. I may publish someday, it may not happen – but I’ll always write.
Giving or getting presents: I’m still a kid at heart and I love getting presents. But when you find that perfect gift for someone you love and you’re able to give it to him or her, that’s the best feeling.
Favorite Day: Hmm… I love the Christmas season, but as the kids have grown up we don’t always get together on Christmas Day. So as I think about it I believe the last day of school has to be my favorite day!
Favorite Flowers: I like Hyacinth the very best. They smell like springtime itself! You just can’t smell them and not smile
I can’t do it – I always worry about leaving someone out. So if you are on my blogroll or we have ever emailed, consider yourself nominated.
