The Liebster Award!

I got nominated for The Liebster Award by the wonderful blogger – The English-Speaking Frenchie. Camille blogs about health, life, minimalism, blogging, and other topics. Please check out her page and follow her blog, it is worth it! ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve seen this award on other blogger’s pages but this is my first time being nominated and I am beyond honored because I honestly never thought anyone would nominate me. But, thank you SO much Camille for the nomination!


  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you.
  3. Nominate 11 bloggers.
  4. Ask your nominees 11 questions.
  5. Notify your nominees once you have uploaded your post.


  1. What is your favorite book, and why does it have a special place in your heart?
    1. I would have to say my favorite book is Becoming by Michelle Obama. I love her elegance, class, and sophistication – learning about her upbringing and being so honest about her time at the White House made me love her even more. I honestly watched her documentary three times on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it I recommend it 100%.
  2. What is your favorite movie? Why?
    1. My favorite movie has always been the Titanic. I don’t even know why, but I can watch it anytime.
  3. What are you passionate about? Why is that so important to you?
    1. I am passionate about my faith because it’s the reason why I live and how I live. God has covered me and protected me through some very tough times in my life and I am forever in awe with his faithfulness.
  4. What is your favorite time of the day, and why?
    1. Pre-COVID it was the time my husband came home from work and we would talk about our day and eat dinner together as a family. Now, it’s right before I go to bed when I thank God for all the blessings.
  5. What is your favorite smell?
    1. My favorite smell is when I just finished cleaning my house – that fresh clean smell. Then afterward I turn on a candle and it’s like a cherry on top. LOL
  6. Why did you start blogging?
    1. Initially, I wanted to write memories for me to look back and reflect. Then I started writing poetry and now I write poetry and faith-based encouraging posts.
  7. In what piece of clothing do you feel instantly beautiful? I bet there is at least one item you feel confident in.
    1. I feel most confident when I’m wearing heels and red lipstick.
  8. What is your favorite season, and why?
    1. My favorite season is the winter, but the winter in Florida. I’m from Michigan – I do not miss the winters up north. Why? Because I love the holidays – it’s my favorite time of the year. So magical.
  9. In what country would you like to live? That can be yours, or any other. Why?
    1. I want to live in Costa Rica – I’ve done research and everything on how I can move over there. LOL I love their way of life, stress-free. Pura Vida! Have I visited? Not yet, but I’m already in love with it.
  10. What is the most important quality a person can have according to you?
    1. Integrity!
  11. What would be your best advice to your younger self?
    1. I wrote a whole blog post about it – you can read my Letter to My 17-Year-old Self

Oh this is such a fun read!!! Congratulations on the award ๐Ÿ’– I see a lot of similarities here, especially wanting to live somewhere youโ€™ve never been. Thanks for sharing more about yourself and for the tag ๐Ÿ˜Š

I really loved reading your answers so thank you so much. I miss red lipstick so much personally, it is quite complicated to wear it now that we need to wear masks. I canโ€™t wait for the time we will be able to rock a beautiful red lipstick again! ๐Ÿ’„
Thanks again, have a nice day!
