Random things about me and Awards


I have been blessed with a number of awards these past few weeks and I will try my very best to honor them in this post. Thank you to all of you who read my blog. I’ll be answering some selected questions from each of these awards.

A big Thank You to Ute for nominating for the Sunshine Award. I love the sound of it: SUNSHINE Award. We can never have too much sunshine in our lives.

What is your favorite time of day? Early mornings when it’s still quiet and the world opens up for miracles.

What is your favorite holiday? I love adventures that include seeing and experience the nature and the wonders of the world as well as meeting people from all over the world.

What is your favorite flower? A single rose.

What is your passion? I struggle with this question. I think my passion is to learn what I can do to make this world a better place and keep on finding and moving along this path.

Another big Thank You to Cathie for nominating for the Super Sweet Blogging Award.

This one comes with a picture of cupcakes. I love cupcakes.

Cookie or cake? Cupcake, to be precise: carrot cupcake. πŸ™‚

Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate unless it’s Mexican Vanilla.

What is your favorite sweet treat? I have a sweet tooth (or a whole bunch of them really…). In my top 2 are definitely carrot cupcakes and peanut butter and Nutella gelato.

Another big Thank You to Ute who nominated me for 2 more awards: The Beautiful Blogger Award and the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. If you haven’t yet checked out Ute’s blog I highly recommend you do. Her blog gives me inspiration every day to be the best that I can be.

Random things about me:

My favorite book is Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. My second favorite bookΒ  is Born to Run by Christopher McDougall. Both books are about adventure and courage to follow your passion, but very different. Love them.

I have always loved taking photos and I have created scrapbooks since my early teenage years. Going digital has created a huge problem for me as I take way too many photos and now have difficulties keeping up with organizing them… LOL.

Β I work from home and I actually don’t like it. Most people are surprised to hear that, but it’s very hard to build and keep professional relationships when you only interact on the phone and email.

I secretly (well, it’s not that secret…) love Formula 1 and I watched Sebastian Vettel win this year’s championship on Sunday (on TV only… no time to go to Brazil…).

I have lived and worked in several countries and moved around frequently. You will be surprised to hear that – even today – when I tell about where I have lived and worked, people ask me, “That’s amazing. What does your husband do to allow you to move around that much?” I am single, have never been married and have created all my opportunities for myself by myself. And I am proud of it!

Let’s get on with nominating other bloggers. I don’t know who to nominate for which award, so I’ll let you pick one or four awards that you like. There are so many great bloggers out there and I will most certainly miss one or the other so please consider this list work in progress and in no particular order. What you should really do, is consider this list a recommended reading list. πŸ™‚ These are all very inspiring blogs!
