Gema over at Belovedgems recently nominated me for a Liebster Award! Thank you so much Gema! I love reading your encouraging and honest posts! If you’re not familiar with the Liebster Award here are the rules…
1. Acknowledge and link back your nominator–that’s me. 😉
2. Answer 11 questions given by the nominator.
3. Nominate other bloggers who have less than 200 followers.
4. Here’s the challenging part: Think of 11 new questions to ask your nominees.
5. Let your nominees know that you have nominated them.
1. How did you come up with your Blog’s name?
Well I was born and raised in the north and slowly started moving further and further south. My husband’s job brought us to the Deep South of Alabama, so my blog names reflects my move from the north to the south.
2. What is your motivation every morning?
I struggle with morning motivation. I’m not a morning person at all, so it takes a lot to get me motivated. Usually what gets me up and going is the fact that I don’t want to be late for work so I know I need to leave the house at a certain time, but also have enough time to make my coffee. On days when I’m off, I stay in bed way too long.
3. Favorite Snack
Right now it’s dark chocolate covered cranberries. A grocery store/farmer’s market called Sprouts opened up here recently and they have a whole section of different candies and trail mix that you can buy by the pound. It’s so good, but so dangerous for me.
4. Your first Blog entry (include link).
A little writing about not being perfect from just a little over a year ago.
5. Extrovert or Introvert (elaborate).
Total introvert. Social situations makes me incredibly nervous, and if I am in a situation where I need to be social I then need have some alone time to recharge. Michael doesn’t believe that I’m an introvert because I talk a lot when in a social situation, but that’s mainly because I talk a lot when I’m nervous.
6. Why do you blog?
I’ve always liked journaling, but I’m a better typer than a writer, so after reading tons of blogs I decided to start one of my own. I love reading about the lives of bloggers, we’re all so different and that fascinates me.
7. Favorite Netflix Series
I binge watched Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt last week and loved it! I don’t usually watch a whole lot of Netflix Originals but this one was awesome.
8. Do you read other blogs?
Yes so many! My Bloglovin is so full of different blogs and I try my best to read through every post everyday.
9. Coffee or Tea
I love both, but coffee is my go to when I need a good caffeine fix.
10. What inspires you to blog a post?
I usually write about life, so whatever is going on in my world is what you’ll see on the blog.
11. Share a Hobby
I love to bake! It’s a good way for me to distress. My creations don’t always look pretty, but about 90% of the time the taste wonderful haha.
