Liebster Award Tag!


*via Google images

Hello, everyone! I was recently nominated for the Liebster Award tag by Abby over at Abby and the Pens, and I am super excited about participating! 
So, here are the rules:
1.) Link back to the person/blogger who tagged you
2.) Answer the 11 questions you have been asked
3.) Tag 11 bloggers who have less than 1,000 followers
4.) Come up with 11 of your own questions to ask them
5.) Let them know that they have been tagged

Ok, here are the 11 questions that I was asked along with my answers:

1. Last song you listened to?
 "You Will Never Run" by Rend Collective.
 

2. Favorite children's book?
 I am not completely sure, but I do remember that I absolutely loved Dr. Seuss. I'm pretty sure we owned every single one of his books! 
 
3. Inspirational quote?

"I would rather be what God chose to make me than the most glorious creature I could think of; for to have been thought about, born in God's thought, and then made by God, is the dearest, grandest, and most precious thing in all thinking." ~C.S. Lewis 
  
4. Ice-Cream or Cupcakes?
 Ice cream! It was actually somewhat difficult to figure this out, because I really do love cupcakes! However, you can't get the rich, creamy, coolness of ice cream from a cupcake, so I have to vote in ice cream's favor. :)

5. If you could live anywhere for a month, where would it be?

Ooohh, I love this question. I think I would love to live in Australia. There is so much beauty in nature there that I could probably deal with the threat of crocodiles and snakes! However, London is dreamy too... 
 
6. If you could eat lunch with anyone, who would it be?

I wish Elizabeth Elliot were still alive, because that would be something so incredible. However, Ann Voskamp is also another person that I find so encouraging. I love her heart for Christ and others, and I think even one afternoon with her would be truly beautiful.
 
7. If you could instantly speak one language fluently, which one would you choose?
 

Spanish! I am learning it, but I would love to be able to speak it with little to no effort. I find other languages fascinating, and I think Spanish has a beautiful sound to it!

8. What are 3 things/people that inspire you?
I already said this, but Ann Voskamp is someone who I find very uplifting and inspiring. Also, Elizabeth Elliot is one of my favorite authors, and an amazing representation of what a woman of God looks like. Some of the people I find most inspiring are the ones who have terminal illnesses or other such things, yet they don't allow those things to shake their testimony or define them. I think of people like Joni Eareckson Tada, who uses her testimony as a tool to reach people for Christ. She doesn't sit home and mourn the fact that she is paralyzed, but instead she has taken advantage of what she does have, creating beautiful art and impacting millions of people through her story.
 
9. When was the last time you laughed and why?
I was just laughing a minute ago, actually! You see, I live in a crazy family, and somebody is always up to some kind of crazy antic, so there is almost always something to be laughing about. :) 

10. What is something that simply makes you happy?

I love being around children. They have such an innocent desire to learn things and discover things, and I love watching them grow up and get excited whenever they find something new. Honestly, I feel energized after spending time with little kids, and I unfailingly come away with funny stories of their adorableness. 

11.  The best thing about blogging so far?
I think what I love about blogging the most is having a place to write down my thoughts, and also having a place to express my creativity. I love coming up with new ideas for posts, connecting with other people, and also hearing from people who read my blog. It is all something that I really enjoy and love to do.

Now it's time for me to nominate 11 people for the tag! I nominate:

Michaela @ Quaintrelle


Ok, here are my 11 questions! 
1. Coffee or tea?
2. One thing you want to accomplish this year?
3. What is your favorite season?
4. If you could suddenly be really good at something, what would it be?
5. Are you a Cat person or a dog person?
6. Favorite quote?
7. What is your favorite book?
8. What is your favorite holiday?
9. Your top three bloggers are...
10. What is a favorite hobby of yours?
11. What inspired you to start a blog?

  1. I am so honored you tagged me. Thank you!!!

    Your answers were too fun to read. I LOVED (okay, who am I kidding? still love) Dr. Seuss books. They're just too much fun.

    That C.S. Lewis quote is one of the best. So powerful. (And C.S. Lewis is great, so yes.)

    I am the same way about children! I ADORE being around little kids. Seeing the world through there eyes is fascinating. The wonder of a child is beautiful. Love it! And, like you said, there's always funny/adorable stories when kids are involved. XD

    Thank you again for passing this tag my way, and coming to my blog! Made my day. ^_^
