Liebster award!

Hey friends! This week I’ve been nominated for a Liebster Award. For those not spending much time in the blogosphere world, it’s an award passed among bloggers as a show of support for our favorite blogs!

Liebster award!

I was nominated by Sweet Sunsets and Pura Vida: thanks Macarena!

Interview questions:

Where are you from?

I grew up in Durham, North Carolina and have lived their most of my life. I think of myself as somewhat southern: I’m addicted to sweet tea and think “y’all” is the best word for the job, but I don’t have the adorable accent. However, I was born in Hawaii and love that I’ve got a little aloha in me!

What is your favorite destination?

Ash too hard! I’m hoping my next major trip will take me to Africa somewhere for a safari adventure, but realistically that’s not happening this year. My favorite place I’ve ever been has to be Australia: I nearly moved back after graduating university!

Do you practice any sport? Which one?

I love pickup sports, but let’s just say I’m not the most talented. What I lack in skill I make up for in scrappiness. My favorite is basketball!

Downtown Sydney - I would move there if I could!
My favorite skyline of all time: Sydney!

Beach or city? Why?

Why pick? Sydney gave me easy access to both! But if I had to choose, probably city. I love the international atmosphere you get in a major metropolitan area: great food, cultural events, and not needing to own a car? Yes, please!

What is your job?

I run a design shop, making stationery and party decorations. You can see my work here!

What is your favorite thing to do?

Travel! I’m obsessed. I’m headed to North Carolina & Virginia in July, and trips to both Montreal and Mexico in the works for this fall!

What is your biggest dream?

Hm, I’m not actually sure. I have a lot of dreams, but no one big overarching one. A few of them include making my design shop successful, someday getting paid to travel, and training my dog to be really well-behaved.

Sweet or Savory food?

Having just finished Whole30, I have to say sweet food. I am unabashedly obsessed with desserts. You can see a few of my favorites here!

Chimichurri beef kabobs – delicious, and perfect for a day at the lake!

What is your favorite restaurant?

Seeing as I live in a tiny town where restaurants aren’t a strong suit, I’ll have to say two of my favorites from my hometown are Shiki Sushi & Angus Barn.

Flip flops or closed shoes?

Flip flops! I have Hawaiian toes – they need to be free!

  6. Ocean or mountains?
  7. What’s the best book you’ve read in the past month?
  8. What’s your favorite season? Why?
  9. Would you rather own a home in your favorite place in the world or be able to travel nonstop? Tell us about what that would look like?
  10. If you could get a degree (or go back and get a different one), what would it be? Why?

If you’ve been nominated:

When you’re nominated for the Liebster, you answer a series of questions that help readers get to know you a bit better! Then you nominate 5 bloggers as well as shouting out who nominated you (that’s me!). Make sure to let those you nominate know!

I can’t wait to hear your answers!! Thanks for joining the party!
