Sunshine Award Nominee!

sunshine-blogger-award-300x300How exciting! My blog is only a few month’s old and I’ve been nominated for the The Sunshine Award from Feasting With Friends. Thank you so much for the nomination! The Sunshine Awards is a virtual “pat-on-the-back” for creative and positive blogs that inspire you and bring “sunshine” to your world. I strive to do this in my writing, so this type of appreciation means a lot!! 🙂 Nancy provided me with the questions to answer, so here it goes!

  1. What is your dream job? A literature professor.
  2. What is your favorite dish to make? A delicious steak dinner. Steak grilled in the great outdoors, a loaded baked potato, some crispy grilled vegetable, and cobbler a la mode for dessert!
  3. What was one of your 2014 resolutions?  To get my blog up and running and be more diligent in writing every day. Success so far!
  4. If you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would you go and why? Bavaria. This is the region that my father’s side of the family is originally from and I would love to immerse myself in the culture and become more in tune with my roots, my heritage, and what makes me me.
  5. List 5 facts that many people don’t know about you. Very rarely do I ever have unpainted toes; in over 8 years my husband has seen them without polish once. Thanks to my husband, I’m a huge fan of Maynard James Keenan, which surprises most people as the don’t associate me with such “heavy” music. I’m German, but I absolutely abhor mustard. I’ll occasionally indulge in a cigarette. I can pick things up with my toes. 🙂
  6. What is your favorite cuisine? This is hard, depends on my mood! German, Hungarian, or Mexican.
  7. What do you enjoy most about blogging? The community! I absolutely love finding new blogs that inspire and motivate me and getting that feedback in return. It is so uplifting to know that your work is appreciated! I also enjoy the routine of regular blogging as it forces me to write on a regular basis aside from my other creative pieces. Keeps it interesting!
  8. How do you cope with stress? Wine! And that occasional nasty vice listed above…
  9. If you could have a coffee date with any celebrity chef, who would it be? Gordon Ramsay! I absolutely love, love, love him!
  10. If you could eat any food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, what would it be? A full breakfast complete with eggs, bacon, and delish seasoned potatoes!

I selected my nominees based on poetry or other writing that I find to be uplifting, motivational, and inspiring!

My nominees for The Sunshine Award are:

Rhetorical Redhead

Lavender Moon Girl

Forgotten Meadows

My Life Lived Full
