  7. List the rules in your post. Once you have written and published it, you have to inform the blogs that you nominated for the Liebster Award and provide a link for them to your post so that they can learn about it.

1) Why did you start blogging?

I originally started blogging as a place to inspire and connect with others through my art. However, I’ve found more here in the blogging community than I could have ever of asked for. I’ve reconnected with my passion for writing and poetry, I’m working on a novel, and I’ve found my voice, that I thought had long ago forsaken me when I turned my back on my writing, only to find it came flooding back to light me up, calling me to share my heart with the world.

2) What is your favorite thing to do on a weekend?

For me, it’s connecting here on the blog through my writing and art. I’ve found solace in combining my two passions of drawing and writing and learned that they don’t have to be independent of each other, but rather the two compliment each other and help me feel truly fulfilled.

3) Beach or mountains which would you prefer.

Mountains, I love the beach too, but there’s something about the beauty and freedom of the mountains that calls to my soul.

4) Do you play any type of sports game?

I did a few growing up, now the closest I come is my yoga.

5) What’s is your favorite food/dish you like to eat?

Something that I find soothing no matter the time of day is a warm piece of bread with melty peanut butter (so essentially peanut butter toast) with a cup of tea.

6) If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Explain why.

Ireland, part of my rich heritage is Irish and I’ve always wanted to go there growing up.

7) Is there a quote, saying, or poem that you are most fond of?

“Creativity is intelligence having fun.” –Albert Einstein 

8) Why that quote, saying or poem?

I had to choose just one, Albert Einstein is a profound mentor in my life who recognized the importance of imagination and creativity over pure logic and formal education. He recognized that imagination is the key to learning and creating new ideas.

9) What advice would you give your younger self?

Be gentle with yourself, be proud of who you are, and don’t feel like you have to please everyone because you’re enough just as you are.

10) What advice would you give your future self?

Keep moving forward doing the things that light you up, embrace your inner sparkle, and let it shine outwardly that you may shine brightly helping others to see their own worth and inner beauty.

    Thank-you for the nomination as well 😄

  2. Congratulations Jenna. Loved your answers. No surprise they reveal a loving heart. ❤️🌼
    Thank you so much dear for the nomination. It is very kind of you.

    But Jenna dear, I am not doing any awards now, so I hope you will not mind if I regretfully decline the nomination. I do hope dear, you would forgive me.
    However, I found your questions very interesting, so I am answering them here.

    Why did you start blogging?

    I started blogging on a friend’s insistence and so that I could keep all my scribbles in one place.

    What are 3 small things that make your day brighter and why?

    My morning cup of tea, hugs by my kids and your lovely comments.

    What’s your favorite genre of books or movies and why?

    I love thrillers and murder mysteries. I love the page turning/edge of seat excitement.

    What would your ideal weekend look like?

    Past couple of weeks have been very hectic, so ideally I would like to just laze around, doing nothing.

    What’s the most interesting place you’ve ever been and why?

    I think I would say Rome. We were there for only two days but it was a lovely romantic stay.

    What kind of art do you enjoy most and why?

    I like all art forms that are aesthetically pleasing. Though if I am pressed to choose, I would say watercolours.

    What movie or book title best describes your life?

    It’s a Wonderful Life!

    What’s something you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t done yet?

    Mmmm! There are a lot of things on my bucket list. Bungee jumping…yes, that would be it.

    What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received and why?

    Every time I receive a compliment for my poems, I am filled with gratitude because they come from such gifted bloggers.

    If you were to write a book what would it be about?

    Haven’t really given a thought to writing a book! Maybe a compilation of my poems!

    Once again, thank you Jenna. 💕
