Blogging has become such a positive and creative element of my life over the past year. It’s given me a creative outlet and connected me with some incredibly inspiring and supportive people.
I am so honoured and thankful to have been nominated by Andrea of Flowers and Faux Pas for the Liebster Award! Andrea, a fellow mom and blogger, has been incredibly supportive of my blogging journey and I am so happy that we’ve connected.
The Liebster Award is a fun way to recognize and connect with fellow bloggers. In fact, since my nomination about a week ago I’ve had the chance to really connect with some of the bloggers I follow and love in an authentic way. I’ve actually gotten to know them even more through this experience and I am so grateful for this. Rather than hitting the “like button”, talking about this process gave us the opportunity to have conversations and I’ve learned that I have way more in common with the bloggers I follow than I realized! Cheers to paying it forward and, of course social media.
The Liebster Award is just that – a way to pay-it-forward by nominating fellow bloggers. At this point, I can honestly say that I’m more excited about the connections I’ve made than the possibility of winning an award. The award is geared to relatively newer blogs that are just starting to gain a following.

Thank the blog that nominated you on a post in your blog.
Answer the questions asked by the blog that nominated you.

My Answers to Andrea’s Questions:
Q. If you could only live in an eternal Summer or eternal Winter Summer, which would you choose?
A. Eternal summer, hands down! I love a bit of snow around Christmas time and my favourite season is fall, but I love the growth and warmth of the summer way more than the chill of winter.
Q. Do you prefer sweet or savoury foods?
A. That’s a tough one. I like a mix of both, but would take savoury more often than sweet.
Q. If you had a Theme song, what would it be?
A. “Go your own way” by Fleetwood Mac.
Q. What was the last book you read?
A. I just finished This is Happy by Camilla Gibb. Great read!
Q. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
A. I’m a night owl for sure. I love the idea of waking up early, but it only happens because I have to lol.
Q. What is your dream vacation?
A. My dream vacation would be to move to Paris and never leave!
Q. Stilettos, Sneakers or Ballet Flats?
A. Stilettos until they hurt, then I bust out the flats hiding in my purse.
Q. What is your go-to recipe?
A. Loaf! Any kind of loaf really. I love fresh bread and a sweet treat, so I make a lot of loaves.
Q. Do you prefer your men bearded or clean-shaven?
A. Beards for sure! I’m a big fan of the authentic “rugged” look. The “I-actually-just-go-out-of-the-shower-didn’t-have-time-or-care-enough-to-shave-threw-these-jeans-and-this-white-Tshirt-on” kind of look! That pretty much sums up my husband in a nutshell.
Q. Why did you start your blog?
A. I started my blog just before the birth of my son. He was overdue so this gave me a creative way to keep my mind occupied while I waited for his arrival. Writing, Jo March and motherhood are all inspirations for my blog. Writing has always been a big part of my life and I finally found the guts and a way to share it with the world.
Q. If your blog had a Mission Statement, what would it be?
A. Create the life you imagined.
