Sunshine Blogger Award

Just a few weeks ago, I was nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award and this week, I was pleasantly surprised to find out I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award!
The Sunshine Blogger Award is an award given to bloggers that other bloggers feel inspire positivity and creativity. I feel so humbled to have been chosen, and I hope I can continue to live up to the positivity that my readers expect. A big thank you as well to Madi Baulch for the nomination! Go check out her blog here.
For this award, I’ve been given 11 questions to answer. I will also pass on my own set of 11 questions to the bloggers I nominate.
Here are Madi’s questions and my answers:
Why did you create your blog? I actually started Stumbly for a class project in college. And I hated the class! But I found my passion for blogging so it all worked out.
What’s your favorite thing about blogging? The community! Everyone is so friendly and willing to help.
What country do you live in? The United States! The grand old state of Missouri, to be exact.
How many countries have you traveled to, if any? I’ve been to 6 countries. My favorite so far has been Ireland!
Cats or dogs? I can’t choose! I love my sassy cat Mooney, but I’m looking to get a dog soon.
What have you learned about yourself since you started blogging? The things we write actually have an impact on people. What I write has the ability to make somebody’s day better. That’s huge.
What are 3 things you love about yourself? I love my creativity and sense of humor. I also have fantastic nails. LOL.
iPhone or Android? iPhone. All the way.
What’s your favorite quote? “We’re all in the gutter, but only some of us are looking at the stars.”
How long have you been blogging for? 3 years!
Who is the most influential person in your life? Probably my mom. We fought a lot when I was a kid and teen, but the older I get, the closer we get. She is just the coolest person.

      No problem! And that’s so nice of you, I wish there were more bloggers around where I live so I could actually chat in person! But the blogging community is so awesome.

        I agree I’d love to meet up with other bloggers and if I was living in a big city there’d be so much more opportunity. But online is ok too! 😊

    Thank you so much for the nomination – I’ve just done this not too long ago, but I’m so thankful you thought of me. It’s so kind!

    Loved reading your answers, too. I love Ireland and I’m hoping to go back next year. I’m only in Scotland so it’s not quite the same distance for me! Oh, and I love the quote β€œWe’re all in the gutter, but only some of us are looking at the stars.” too.

    Really nice to know more about you x
