Words on the Wind


~ The Liebster Award ~

I was so excited when I received my Liebster Award nomination today from the fabulous teacups&bookends! Thank you ever so much! It is such a wonderful feeling to have my little blog turn into something others can enjoy as well! Again, I thank you from the bottom of my heart!


Like any other nomination for an award, there are rules that must be followed.

These rules are:

  • Thank the person who has nominated you.
  • Answer the 11 questions they asked.
  • Nominate 11 other bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.
  • Ask your nominees 11 questions of your own.

These are the questions teacups&bookends asked:

  1.  If you could meet one person, real or imaginary, dead or alive, who would it be?   – I would love to meet oh so many people both dead, imaginary, and living! I think I would have to go with Tom Hiddleston, however, because I sorta kinda have a crush on him. 🙂
  2. If you were stuck on a desert island and could only bring 3 books, which ones would you choose?  Now this is a hard question! I Think I would have to go with “The Scorpio Races“, “Dracula”, and “Ink Exchange”.
  3.  What’s your favorite television show?   I love Food Network’s evening shows, and I think “Chopped” would have to be my favorite!
  4. Who or what inspires you?   – Dreams inspire me. I know that may sound funny, but usually all of my story ideas and even picture ideas come in my dreams while I sleep, and when I wake up, I write them all down.
  5.  If the world ended tomorrow, what’s the one thing you regret not getting a chance to do?    – If the world were to end tomorrow, I would regret never getting the chance to fall in love and be loved.
  6.  What do you notice first about a person? (Be honest :)  )    Well, since we have to be honest, the first thing I notice about a person are their shoes. I have a shoe feddish and love to see what everyone is wearing. I’m always disappointed when they have boring, un-colorful sneakers on or black flip-flops.
  7.  What makes your best friend, your best friend?   My best friend is my best friend because of their ability to always listen.
  8.  What’s your dream job?   – My dream job would have to be a professional photographer who travels the world to do amazing photo shoots never before seen.
  9.  Do you wish you had some sort of paranormal ability? If so, what?   – Yes, I think I would. I would like to be able to have the gift of sight, and see all the lost souls who wonder the earth, and then write stories about them.
  10.   Name a character – book, tv, movie – that you instantly fell in love with.   – I instantly fell in love with Captain Jack Sparrow played by Johnny Depp in “The Pirates of the Caribbean.”
  11.  Name something you absolutely hate.   – I absolutely hate taking tests!

  1. What is your favorite movie of all time?
  2. If NASA gave you the chance to fly to the moon, would you take it? Why or why not?
  3. What is one piece of good advice you would give to anyone?

~ Very Inspiring Blogger Award ~


I went to my blog this morning with a mind to write a new post or share a new photo, when I received word from the inspiring and amazing mmlefevre, informing me that she has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award! I am honored to receive this award! It totally made my morning! I would like to thank mmlefevre for this award! It is amazing and means SO much to me! I never would have thought my blog could mean this much. I am very thankful and humbled by this award!

My blog was started as a school assignment a few months back, but soon blossomed into my little “retreat” after I found how much I enjoy blogging. I could share my thoughts and photos to an audience I never before thought I could reach.  Now on my blog, I love to share little stories, poems, quotes, and pictures. With every post I add, my goal is to bring a little beauty and enjoyment to every visitor’s day.
