Good morning everyone! Happy Monday!

So I was going to write a post on Instant Pot Ribs for today, until I was notified by Sisira that she was nominating me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. I was so surprised to be receiving this nomination as I’ve only been consistently posting on this blog for a couple weeks. Be that as it may, I still received the nomination and I’m naturally very excited about it.

I want to sincerely thank Sisira over at Officially Sparkle for nominating me. Sisira’s blog was one of the first ones I followed as she writes very informative blogs about blogging in general, as well as some great lifestyle posts.

So, What is the Sunshine Blogger Award anyway?

The Sunshine Blogger Award is awarded to bloggers who inspire sunshine in the lives of their readers. Nominees are selected by fellow bloggers. The Sunshine Blogger Award is for those who are creative, positive, and inspiring, and spread sunshine to the blogging community.

Nomination Rules:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.
  3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.
  4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog

So without further adieu, here are the questions I received from Sisira from Officially Sparkle, with my answers.

Do you or do you not find the world a happy place?

As a realist I wouldn’t consider the world to be solely a happy place. There is a lot of pain and suffering in the world, but there is also a lot of happiness. I think we all have the ability to make it better though!

Who would you dedicate the good things in your life to?

I would dedicate everything to my husband and two children.

Savory or sweet? Give an example of the perfect snack.

My perfect snack is a chocolate chip cookie dough twister from the local ice cream shop.

Cats or Dogs?

Definitely dogs. I mean, look at this cutie:

Which is your personal favourite among all your blog posts?

My personal favourite is probably 5 Key Elements to a Healthy Intimate Relationship. Because I worked in the area of Domestic VIolence for a reason. I find the topic of romantic relationships to be very fascinating as there is such diversity in the way people define what their romantic relationships look like.

Which is your favorite song?

Currently I would say it is Howling by Wild Rivers. I’ll belt this out in the car as soon as I hit the road.

Do you like to travel and where have you been?

I love to travel because I like seeing new places. I’ve been to the Ukraine, Cuba, and several places in Canada and the US.

If you were writing a mail to a fifteen-year-old, what would the focus be on?

I don’t think I understand the question but I don’t think I would be writing mail to a fifteen year old since I’m almost 30.

Which is the most recent book you have read?

I’m currently re-reading all the Game of Thrones books. I’m on the first one of the series. I had to start reading them again to try to erase the memory of the terrible last season from the television series.

Which do you prefer? Kindle or paperback?

Definitely paperback. I love the feel and smell of books.

What is the most valuable thing you’ve learned from blogging?

I’ve learned patience and perseverance through blogging for sure. But I’ve just started so I expect to learn a lot more.


Now, here are my 11 nominees:

  1. Phoebe, MD: Medicine and Poetry
  2. #MILLENIALLIFECRISIS
  3. Blunt Japanese Woman | Female INTP
  4. In Dianes Kitchen
  5. Southern Mom Living
  6. Stiina Marie
  7. Brokenstrengthbuthopeful
  8. Forged Mettle Farm
  9. MAKUPSY
  10. Wine makes me happy
  11. Cats and Trails and Garden Tales

And here are my 11 questions for these folks:

  1. What made you decide to start seriously blogging?
  2. Do you ever feel stressed when trying to come up with content for your blog, or is this something you find comes naturally?
  3. What is your favourite season of the year?
  4. Do prefer writing with pen and paper, or on a keyboard?
  5. What is the name of your favourite book?
  6. Who is your hero and why?
  7. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
  8. List two of your pet peeves
  9. What’s your favourite family recipe?
  10. What is your favourite family tradition?
  11. How many languages do you fluently speak?

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, and for those of you that are disappointed about the lack of ribs in this post…I got you. Tomorrow, I promise!

Ciao for now!

      1. Glad you enjoyed it! I’ve released the previous chapters already & I’m trying to gather more beta feedback to improve on it, so if there’s anything that appealed to you I’d love to hear your thoughts!
