Sunshine Blogger Award 2018

Woohoo!!!   I got nominated for The Sunshine Blogger Award 2018!   That was such an unexpected surprise, that I was actually speechless - and THAT does not happen very often!!!

A Huge Thank you Nancy Mulligan at My Everyday Challenges for the nomination!  Please visit her blog and follow her journey when you have a chance.

The ‘Sunshine Blogger Award’ is all about recognizing bloggers for being positive, inspiring and creative.   This award is voted by bloggers, to acknowledge their achievements and offer support.  I'm so lucky to be part of this supportive community!

What are the rules of the Sunshine Blogger Award?
  •  Thank the blogger who nominated you and link their blog so others can find them.
  • Answer the 11 questions which the blogger who nominated you asked.
  • Nominate 11 bloggers and ask them 11 different questions.
  • List the rules and display the Sunshine blogger award logo in your post and/or on your blog site.


1. What motivated you to start blogging?
I love to read and I started a Book Club last year that now has 95 members, which is pretty awesome.  My goal is to polish my writing skills and actually write a book the next couple of years.  I decided that blogging could give me the best of both worlds: reading and writing, so I jumped right into it and do not regret it!

2. What hobby would you get into if time and money weren’t an issue?
Hmmm, if time and money were not an issue, I would be traveling the world, sitting at cafes and writing about the people I met.

3. What fictional place would you most like to go?
That's an easy one!  I would love to get lost in Diagon Alley, from the Harry Potter Series, which is the magical place where all the amazing bookshops and other magical goods stores are found!

4. Are you usually early or late?
Oh I'm always early and actually dislike people that are constantly late :-(

5. What are some small things that make your day better?
A random text from my husband telling he's thinking of me; a chat with a friend; the knowledge that I made someone smile...

6. What is one of your favorite smells?
I love the smell of the ocean.

7. What age do you wish you could permanently be?
Do you mean if I could be an immortal? Gee, I guess I'd like to be 35 forever!

8. If your life was a book, what would its title be?
The Infinite Discovery of Self

9. What’s the best thing about you?
My ability to determine the best course of action, even when my emotions are involved.

10. What is the strangest thing you have come across?
I used to sleepwalk when I was about 8 or 9 yrs old and one night, while my dad was watching TV, he said that I got up from my bed and headed to the front door.  As I started turning the key to open the door, my dad calmly guided me back to bed.  After that night, the front door key was always hidden, to avoid the little "sleepywalker" from going out.  The strange thing is that to this day I have no recollection of any of this and as far as I know, I have not been sleep walking since...

11. What is something you will NEVER do again?
Going on a Rollercoaster.  I'm afraid of heights (ok, I said it) and going on a rollercoaster ride literally scares me to death.  I have tried to face this fear but I would rather leave it alone (for now at least).
