Sunshine Blogger Award

As a new blogger, I am so excited to have been nominated for the Sunshine Bloggers Award. I am determined to stay health and share what I’ve learned over the past year to increase mental health awareness and end the stigma💜

The Rules

This is really quite simple: first, I thank the person that nominated me, and then I nominate and pass on the award to 11 bloggers that I consider fit the criteria. This is a fantastic way that we recognise bloggers who may otherwise fly under the radar, unnoticed.

Additionally, the person that nominated me has given me 11 questions to answer, which I will do below. I will then come up with 11 questions that those nominated by me are to complete and post when they nominate their bloggers!

1. Thank the person who nominated you and provide a link back to their blogging site.

2. List the Sunshine Blogger Award rules and display the logo on your site

3. Answer the Sunshine Blogger Award questions.

4. Nominate 11 other bloggers and ask them 11 new questions.

5. Notify the nominees about their nominations

Gratitude & Appreciation

I want to acknowledge and say a big thank you to Beth for considering and nominating me for this award! I hope you will check out her blog and share with others one of her posts that inspires you.

3. If you had one wish, what would it be? 💜 I would wish that everyone a “a person” to go to on their difficult days.

5. What is your favourite music? 💜 Country – you cant beat the emotions that come from a country artist like @BradPaisley

6. If you could travel in a time machine where would you go? 💜I wouldn’t go too far…only back a few decades to the 80’s so I could rock some tight jeans, side bangs and listen to Glass Tiger.

8. Name your favourite dessert. 💜 Hands down creme brûlée

9. In the evening, would you rather play a game, visit a friend/relative, watch a movie, or read? 💜 I would choose to curl up on the couch in my PJs with some hot chocolate to watch a romantic comedy.
