We are so thankful that although we are still very new to this blogging community and journey, we have already been nominated for two awards!
The Liebster Award
I was nominated by Do What You Love at https://dowhatyoulove2015.wordpress.com
The Unique Blogger Award
I was nominated by damngela at angelahasthoughts.wordpress.com
These are both user-nominated awards to show support, encouragement, and recognition for bloggers who are just starting out.
The rules of the awards are simple: once you have been nominated, you have received the award, give credit to the person(s) who nominated you, answer their questions, and nominate five other blogs for the award. Since I have been extremely busy lately, I have combined my acceptance posts into one! I will choose two questions to answer from each person who nominated my blog. Because I am so new and haven't had a chance to explore other blogs yet, I will nominate one person for each, and list my questions for them.
What do you appreciate the most about your life?
I most appreciate being able to spend my life surrounded by the people who matter most to me. With all of the loss I have experienced lately, I focus on being thankful for my loved ones exponentially more than before.
If you could, what is one piece of advice you would give your 10-year-old self?
I would tell myself as a kid to enjoy every moment. Even the times I was grounded. Growing up in today's world is complicated and full of uncertainty.
What and who motivates you to write?
As many of you already know, my boyfriend Caleb motivates me, along with all that we have been through this year. I felt that our story and perseverance could help someone, or encourage one person to never give up, and I knew I wanted to share it. If only one person was encouraged by our story, it would all be worth it.
What has been your biggest challenge with blogging?
The biggest challenge I have faced in the creation of this blog would be having to think back and relive the difficult memories I write about. It brought tears to my eyes to write about getting the call that Caleb was hurt, all of those feelings come rushing back and it has been very emotional.
I would like to nominate bloggerinablogworld.com for the Unique Blogger Award because I truly enjoy reading her poetry and musings on everyday life.
I would also like to nominate damngela at angelahasthoughts.wordpress.com for The Liebster Award because I find it very refreshing to read the blog of someone only a little younger than I.
My questions to the two of you are:
What has been your favorite subject to write about?
What is your favorite book, and why?
What motivates you in your everyday life to try harder, or do more?
