Liebster Award Nominee

I was recently thinking about mixing things up on my blog. Well, it just so happens that Tiffany over at Tiffany Lane Handmade had impeccable timing. A big thank you to Tiffany for nominating me for this award! Go check out her blog! Here are a few answers to the questions that coincide with the nomination.

1. Why do you blog?

This answer has definitely evolved over the past few years; currently blogging allows me to track my tastes, style, and consistency. It also provides a hub where people can follow my recent work and projects.

2. What’s your favorite past time?

If I had to pick one, it would be surfing. The second that icy water rushes over my sandy feet as I’m standing with my board in one arm facing the waves, time slows and all my worries seem to shrink slowly into oblivion. It’s bliss.

3. Do you have any pets? If so, tell me a little about them!

I do. Kiki is the feline equivalent of a dog-child. She was given to us by our good friends who lovingly named her after this video. I think it’s fitting.

4. If you had the option of going to the desert, ocean, or mountains, which would you choose hands down and what time of year?

Ocean. As long as there are waves. Desert is a close second.

5. Is blogging your full time gig? If not, what is?

Blogging is only a small part of my life. I wear many hats. All require much of my time.

6. Sweet or savory?


7. Where did you grow up?

South Orange County. However, I had the opportunity to travel a lot in my teens so I like to think that I wasn’t brainwashed by consumerist society.

8. What is or would be number one on your bucket list?

Early retirement has been my number one. Although, I define “retirement” a little differently than most.

9. What kind of music do you normally listen to?

I could fill a blog endlessly with the answer to that question. To keep things simple, you can check out my profile.

10. Bright colors or neutral tones?

Neutral tones for sure.

11. Tell us one thing about yourself your readers don’t already know.

I swam with Crocodiles in Africa when I was 18 and lived to tell the tale.
