A Welcome Surprise

It has been a really bad week. I have been grasping for any and all positive distractions, so this nomination could not have come at a better time.  I am very surprised to receive a Versatile Blogger Award nomination and am so incredibly grateful. Thank you to Ioana of Music Teacher Lifestyle for thinking of me! I am new to blogging as of this year, and it has been more of a learning and thought provoking experience than I anticipated.


As part of accepting the award, I have to show the award on my blog (happy to!), thank the person who nominated me (see above), share 7 things about myself (eek!), and nominate 10 blogs (see below).

This is the hardest part:

7 Things About Me

1) Coffee for me is a daily requirement. I love the smell of it, love the taste of it, hot or cold. The best compliment to coffee is pie. Anytime I watch a movie in which the characters meet in a diner and order coffee and pie, I am instantly envious.

2) I have been journaling since I was 12 years old. Having a place to let my thoughts pour out has kept me sane and self-reflective and made me a better person.

3) When you’re stuck in traffic and you look into the car next to you to see a girl singing and car dancing like she’s at the club, it might be me.

4) I consume audio books like they are sustenance. I started listening to them when I adopted my dog 6 years ago and was agonizingly bored on our walks. Now anytime I’m doing something I don’t want to do (chores, enduring my long commute), I am heartily listening to book.

5) I am a margarita snob. True margaritas do not have mix! Almost every Friday night, my hubs and I go to a local Mexican food spot for dinner. The food is delish, but the margaritas are amazing! I crave them the entire week.

6) I don’t watch TV often, but when I do, I binge watch. Netflix gets worried I’ve been watching too long and asks me if I want to continue. 😉

7) I can’t say no to ice cream. It’s a serious weak spot.

In my short time as a blogger, I have come across quite a few blogs I have enjoyed reading.

  1. What sort of pie your favourite? Sweet or savoury? My favourite is apple pie. Thanks for the nomination. I will endeavour to pass it on to some worthy recipients!
