Thank you for the Mystery Blogger Award Nomination: View from the Back! :)




A mundane Monday in disguise revealed a very happy surprise: A Mystery Blogger Award nomination graciously bestowed by a lovely fellow blogger, Sheree.  Thank you so much, Sheree, for your kind gesture! You should definitely check out her blog:View from the Back!

Okoto Enigma created the Mystery Blogger Award to foster a sense of friendly community among bloggers and to bring recognition to blogs that haven’t been in the spotlight.

Three Things About Me

  1. I have a parakeet named Charla! I’ve taught her several fun phrases, including, “Don’t just stand there. Bust a move!” I first heard the YouTube phenomenon Disco the Parakeet utter the phrase, and I was determined to teach my birdie to say the same. 🙂
  2. I’m an only child.
  3. I majored in music (piano) in college.

Sheree’s Questions for me

What do you most enjoy about blogging?

As an introvert, blogging is an outlet that allows me to communicate with people from around the world about travel, gardening, cooking, and other aspects of life I’m passionate about.

What’s your favourite sport and why?

I love to swim and watch swim competitions because I feel so weightless, free, and powerful in the water.

Where in France would you most like to visit and why?

I’ve been to Paris and Versailles, but I always wanted to stroll through the lavender fields of Provence!

Which meal would you choose for your last supper?

Goodness, this is a tough one, Sheree. 😉 I think I would have to say fresh, buttered corn-on-the-cob, potato salad, fresh sliced tomato, and a grilled cheeseburger/veggie burger. For dessert, I would have strawberries topped with homemade vanilla ice cream. Now I’m hungry!

Name five people who you’d like to join you for your last supper?

My mom, my best friend, my maternal grandma, Beatrix Potter, and Tim Burton.

My Nominees

In no particular order or preference, these are just some of the blogs I enjoy reading:

Questions for my nominees:

  1. What destination do you enjoy visiting again and again?
  2. When did you begin blogging? What do you enjoy blogging about the most?
  3. What is the weirdest food you’ve ever tried?
  4. What is your favorite film and book?
  5. If you could be any character from a cartoon or comic book, whom would you choose. Why?

My post about travel tips for highly sensitive people has received the most likes on WordPress. Hope you enjoy! 🙂

Happy Trails!

  1. Hi, thanks a lot for nominating. It has been very kind gesture from you and I feel humbled that you considered my blog to be fit for the nomination. I have so far kept my blog as award-free for all these years and would like to keep so for time-being. But I am so grateful for love of fellow-bloggers.
