Yet another Liebster nomination comes my way. This time I have been nominated by WendyMegget. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am very honored and flattered. I know some people think all this awards and nominations are silly, but I am definitely NOT one of those people. To me, no matter how many times, it is always an honor. I don’t count or keep track of nominations like this. I just do my best and try to keep it fun and interesting. It makes me feel good just knowing that others like what I do too. It is an honor to be recognized by my peers and it is very flattering to learn than what I blog about and write about is pleasurable and encouraging to others. Whether we want to admit it or not, we all blog about the things that matter to us and we want them to matter to others too.
The Rules are:
- Thank the blogger(s) who nominated you.
- Share 11 facts about yourself.
- Answer the 11 questions the blogger(s) asked you.
- Nominate 11 bloggers and make them happy!!
- Make up to 11 questions and ask them to your nominees!
- Notify your 11 nominees.
The 11 Questions Are:
- Where is the most beautiful or majestic place you’ve seen?
Gosh, this is a hard one. We travel all the time, and there are so many beautiful places. I think if you look close enough, every place has its own kind of beauty. But Colorado, where I live, is pretty hard to beat. It has so much beauty everywhere you look.
2. What sort of weather is your favourite?
Fall is my favorite season. I love the cooler weather and all the changing of the colors.
3. Have you ever saved a life? How?
Yes. Because of my job I am first responder, though NOT a professional first responder. I am trained the same way life guards are trained, since I work in pools and I am a swim coach and a swimmer. Because of my training I was able to help someone who was pinned underneath a motorcycle after an accident. The motorcycle was about to blow up, and I was the first one there and got him away from the bike, just minutes before the bike went up in flames.
4. What is your favourite quote?
“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never what you’re gonna get” – the movie Forrest Gump
5. If you had a spirit animal, what would it be?
I have a couple actually. One is the dolphin. The water is my home, and I would swim and play all day if I could. The other is the wolf. I am very protective and love to be part of a pack, but I also love to be on my own too. I can be very loving, but if you cross me or threaten my loved ones, I can also be very deadly.
This is my husband and I swimming with Maya in Roatan, Honduras in 2017.
6. What is the most valuable quality you look for in people?
Honesty and sincerity.
7. Is there something in this world that you haven’t seen, but that you want to see before you die?
Plenty of things. The more I do, the more I want to do. Rather than checking things off my bucket list, mine just keeps growing and growing.
8. What’s your favourite song?
That depends on my mood and what is going on at the time. I love music of all kinds.
9. What scares you the most?
Snakes, yet surprisingly, eels do not.
Me holding a garden eel in Grand Cayman.
10. What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done?
11. What is your next big adventure?
I am off to Spain in just a couple of weeks. We’ve never been and this is one of those bucket list places. I am really looking forward to it.
I like these questions, so I am going to ask my nominees the same questions.
My Nominees Are:
I am interested in many different things, and I have a lot of different hobbies. These are only a handful of some my favorite bloggers. I think we all have our specialties and interests, and that’s what keeps things fun. Good luck to all of you. You all deserve to be recognized.
