Blogger Awards ♥

Hola, ya'll :) Do people say that? Yeah, it's not a thing, pretty sure about that. *weird face* Today I stumbled upon the fact that I have been awarded by certain lovely people and I have not posted my answers for the tag.  *unison gasp*  That is why I have taken it upon myself today to write up this post titled "Blogger Awards ♥"  :) Using big words is quite fun, for instance, did you know that petrichor means the smell of earth after rain? Ok that was random. Anyways, so keep reading if you want to see my post in which I write up the answers to tags! Wow - there is no way to make that sound good.

Let's get on with this. 

Alright, so my first tag/award that I'm going to do is this one that was awarded to me by the lovely Ginny and June! Click on their names to go to their blogs:D


○ Thank the person who nominated you!

○ Take a picture representing one of your talents. It could include a picture of a doll(s), or something that represents your talent you chose.
○ Answer the 5 questions below:
○ Nominate at least three people that you have NEVER nominated for an award before. No tag backs!!
○ Ask them the same five questions I ask you.
○ Comment on their blog letting them know that you nominated them.
○ Add the pic above on your sidebar or award page thanking the person (or people) who nominated you.

OK, let's do this.

OK, so this was three, but my point was photography. I feel a little proud and stuck-up when I say I have a talent, but I mean, photography is something I always have and always will enjoy, so yes, it may work up to be a talent :) 


1. When did you first begin your talent? 
Probably when I got my first camera, or probably before.... no clue.  

2. Why do you love to do this? (your talent)
Because it's a way to speak a thousand words without speaking a single one.  And sometimes when you're having a crazy time with your friends, you can really capture the moment, and other times it really just captures beautiful scenery and whatnot.  Photography is just so wonderful. 

3. Who or what inspired you to begin your talent?
Umm, I don't know if anyone or anything inspired me to start, but seeing other people's photos and Pinterest are really big motivators :) Plus nature itself is just calling me to photograph it, so who can say no to that?

4. Is your talent a performing art, a visual art, or something else?
I'd say visual art. 

5. Do you have to practice your talent to improve?
Yes, photography is something you get better at. It doesn't happen overnight :D

That was really fun :) The questions were really different from most tags and awards, and I really loved them. Thanks again! 

so i tag:

OK, now my next one is from Lydia and Meghan Thank you so much! 


○ Thank the person who nominated you, they will surely appreciate it! Also, leave a link back to the person who nominated you
○ Write about ten things you are thankful for. Here is the tricky part though; you can't just say you are grateful for gum or video games or whatever "little" thing it is you want to discuss. Think deeply about what is really really important to you, such as family, or life in it of itself. Explain why you are thankful for those things.

○ Tag ten other bloggers; our goal is to tag everyone!! Comment on the blogs you nominate so that they will know that they were tagged!

○ Add the pic above to you sidebar or award page thanking the person (or people) who tagged you.

So - this is more of a Thanksgiving-y post, but it always good to be thankful, so this is good

  1. Life. This is so fragile, and every day you wake up to see yourself, do you realize how blessed you are? God is so good to give me this and I love Him for it ♥
  2. Blogger. Really love you guys so much. Thank you for being so awesome ♥ 
  3. Music. Sometimes I don't think I understand how powerful this is.  It's so encouraging and I just love it so much. It like opens up another world where it's just me and I can truly be myself.  And then I try to bring that to reality.
  4.  Writing.  I find it amazing that this way to express myself is just perfection. I started writing when I was little, and the passion has never died down. Nope. 
  5. Chocolate. It's so sweet. Literally. Sorry, these reasons are probably getting really boring... 
  6. Family.  I wuv mine ♥
  7. Friends. Online and in real life. They're all amazing. (Yup, talking about you:)  You know those people who just make your days a little brighter and make you laugh a little louder? I don't have a lot of friends, but the ones I have are the ones that make my days a little longer and brighter, and make me laugh a little louder and longer. And that includes you. 
  8.  Food.   Face it: we couldn't live without this stuff. So it's pretty cool. 
  9. Love. “A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you.” ― Elbert Hubbard.   The fact that God still loves me after all I've done? Mind=blown. 
  10. Jesus Christ. My Saviour and the One who I live for each and every day. He's the reason I live.
Ok, so now I nominate: 
Well, I got to eight.

    Now, I think that this is it. Let me know if you think you awarded me but I didn't do a post on it, because then I'd feel a little bad. :) you all are so great. 
    Anyways, I'm going to go now, because tomorrow I'm not going to be at home at all, because in the morning I leave to go somewhere, then come home in the afternoon, get ready for an evening program at my school, which gets super late, then the next day I have to go to my friend's sister's wedding, stay there till pretty late in the afternoon, then head over to my church's Christmas program, then finally get home. Can't wait till the part where I crash on the couch with the laptop in one hand and a cup of hot chocolate in the other. That would be the best part. :)
    Well, the others help be more social I guess, but who needs that? everybody

    Ok well, have a great day ♥ 
    God bless :)
