A Sunny Surprise

May 29, 2013

Sunshine Award

I am honored and delighted that fellow blogger Tracey has nominated me for the Sunshine Award… how super-cool is that!  Thanks so much, Tracey.  Be sure to check out her blog, Trace in the Kitchen here.  It’s filled with food, travel, and terrific commentary!

There are a few guidelines to follow:

  1. Post the Sunshine Award logo on your blog.
  2. Nominate 10 fellow bloggers and announce their nomination in their blog’s comment section.
  3. Mention links back to their blog, including a link to the person who nominated you.
  4. Answer the questions below, which are designed to help people get to know you better.

Ten Questions:

  1. Favorite Color:  It’s so hard to pick just one.  I love to wear blue, but I surround myself with the warmth of oranges and yellows.
  2. Favorite Animal:  No question here… cats
  3. Favorite Number:  17
  4. Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink:  Water with lemon (I know, it’s pretty boring.)
  5. Favorite Alcoholic Drink:  Wine
  6. Favorite Facebook or Twitter:  Facebook, since I’ve never tried Twitter.
  7. My Passions:  Traveling, writing, making art, spending time in nature, reading
  8. Giving or Receiving:  Definitely giving, especially little surprises
  9. Favorite City:  Amsterdam
  10. Favorite TV Show:  Boardwalk Empire

Here are my nominees — I know you’re going to love them:

    Thanks for the nomination, Ellen! Okay, so there must be a back story as to why your favourite number is 17? 😉

      Hey Jodi! I wish I had one, but there’s just something about that odd number that I’ve always been drawn to. By the way, your art is beautiful. I am particularly fascinated by your sketchbooks — they are so full of life and simply gorgeous!
