Liebster Award!

Ha. So. Funny story.

The other day, I was innocently scrolling through my tagged photos on Instagram, when I saw one that I had never noticed before. Naturally, my curiosity was piqued, and I clicked on it, to learn that the beyond amazing Alexandria over at Arrows To The Moon had tagged me for the Liebster award in MARCH. That's right, MARCH. And now, four months later, I'm completing it. *facepalm*

So, Alexandria, I'm super sorry that I'm just now doing this. No idea where my mind was in March, but apparently I went temporarily insane.

A N S W E R S

1// What's your biggest inspiration for writing your blog posts? Honestly, just everyday life. I'll see something online, or hear something interesting when I'm talking to someone, or something will happen in my life that I want to write about. It just depends on what's going on. 

2// Did you ever write before you started your blog? I've always written, for as long as I can remember. I've kept too many diaries to count, love poetry, have written several stories, and tried to write a play when I was about nine. I just found that the other day. It wasn't pretty. 

3// Who is your biggest role model? I mean, obviously the person that we should all aspire to be more like is Jesus, but otherwise I guess I'd have to say my mom- she's the most amazing person ever.

4// What is one tip you would give to a new blogger about growing readers? Don't be afraid to talk to people and to put yourself out there! If you don't ever talk to anyone, how will anyone know that you exist? Also, don't be afraid to ask for help. You're new at this! You're not going to get 100 followers right off the bat. (Unless you're freakishly lucky in which case want to help a girl out? ;) ) 

5// What's your favorite way of keeping your eyes on Jesus, even when it's hard to do so? I try to do Bible reading every night- I decided to try to read the entire Bible in a year, so I've been working my way through it nightly. Slowly but surely, I'm going to do it! Also, if I'm having a really busy or stressful week, I'll listen to lots of Christian music, just to have those words running through my head as opposed to some of the more mainstream stuff that I typically listen to. 

6// What's your favorite song? Oh gosh, y'all know I love music. All-time favorite? Lego House by Ed Sheeran. Favorite Christian song? Oceans by Hillsong. Current favorite pop song? Unsteady by X Ambassadors. Musical theatre? (currently) Wait For It from Hamilton. 

7// Has your blog changed you in any ways that you didn't think it would when you first started it? I feel like I'm a completely different person than I was when I started this blog. I'm not sure exactly what to chalk up to blogging and what's just the result of growing up, but I know I've changed a lot. I've become a better writer. Blogging has taught me dedication- the fact that I've stuck with this for almost two years is kind of crazy to think about! I've learned SO much about computers, cameras, and photography. And I feel like I'm slowly becoming more confident.

8// Where is your absolute favorite place to travel? Honestly, I just love to travel to the beach. I'm pretty low maintenance, just stick me on a quiet little beach and I'm good! 

9// Who is your all-time favorite blogger? Oh my goodness, I can't answer this! I have SO MANY favorite bloggers. Picking one is far too cruel of a question for me to answer.

10// What's the most inspiring quote you've ever heard/read? Not going to lie, I immediately pulled up Pinterest when I read this question, haha! Y'all know that I LOVE quotes, so it's really hard for me to even narrow it down to a few favorites! I guess that I'll go with one of my all-time favorites- "Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all."
