My Acceptance Speech {The Liebster Award}

Sunday may have been the Golden Globes & Monday might have been the Rose Ceremony….but today I am sporting my very own special award from my bloggy friend, Jessi over at Jessi’s Deign – The Liebster Award!

 The Liebester Award is series where bloggers who are under 200 followers are nominated by other bloggers to share more about themselves. In return, they spread the joy by choosing others to participate! Fun, right?! 

Here we go!

11 Things YOU Need to Know About Me:

{2.}  I am a girly girl who you might think would be the last person to work in Agriculture – but I do!

{3.}  I’m a creative junky…crafting & baking is the only way to get my fix.

{4.}  A trip to the farmers market, floppy hats, the color pink, monograms, & wine are the simple things in life.

{5.}  My husband & I break into singing conversations almost daily. We even have a rap about our puppy child – Axle. (he will DIE if he reads this)

{6.}  I constantly compare myself to others but know that I am where I am for a reason.

{7.}  Theres nothing like the sound & smell of a new book…it has NOTHING on those e-books.

{8.}  Basketball is MY sport. I cheer for the UK Wildcats & the Murray State Racers.

11 Questions from Jessi at Jessi’s Design:

{1.}  Biggest real life inspiration?

My Mom…she’s my best friend, biggest supporter, & inspiration. She’s such a strong Christian and lives a life to help others. I hope that one day I will be a mother like that!

{2.}  Biggest Celebrity Icon?

I am a pretty big fan of Blake Shelton…but I guess he’s not really my Icon! ha! I really love how Taylor Swift remains a good role model. Despite the other annoyances I have with Taylor, I think she gives back to the community & really does maintain an attitude that isn’t like all the other celebrities.

{3.}  Where do you see yourself in 3+ year!?

Three years….hmmm….honestly I really hope to be back in the South! Closer to family, friends, and warmer weather! I would like to own my own business or be a stay at home mom…(maybe three years is too soon for that…). I want Luke & I to be able to say we grew deeper spiritually & that our marriage is better with each year.

{4.}  Cat or dog people?


Cat’s are snobby, dogs are so cuddly!

{5.}  Favorite Book?

Wife After God…right now!

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers

{6.}  What word best describes you?


I am a little weird and nerdy but cool (I’d like to think!..ha!)

{7.}  Faveorite Escape?

Crafting, Baking or Blogging. 

When I’ve had enough of the day I just want to make something or write/read….It’s my happy place.

{8.}  If you could time travel – what time period would you visit?

The late 60s-70s …. the clothes, the hair, the way of life? I love it!

{9.}  What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Graduating college & getting a good job…maybe?

I feel most accomplished when my little business grows more than anything….

The Little Mermaid of Grease

…I promise I am not 7.

{11.}  Top reason for blogging?

Sharing Life…mine, yours, theirs….I love writing, sharing, and getting to know others.
