We’re chuffed

liebster-awardKona & I would like to give the blogosphere a virtual high five! Cheryl, who authors A Life In Libraries nominated our blog for a Liebster Award. Her acceptance speech jokingly referred to the honour of being nominated, let’s face it, we all love a win ;-)!

As soon as I heard Liebster I wondered if the word was of German origin and yes it apparently is. It’s heartwarming to be nominated for a blog that has been a labour of love for my Schätzchen.

Here is the gauntlet thrown by :

  1. Why did you start blogging?
    It’s cheaper than therapy and serves as a eulogy
  2. What time of day do you blog?
    Late afternoon, early evening.
  3. How old are you?
    Old enough to remember when Pluto was considered a planet
  4. What are you wearing?
    Lipstick and a smile
  5. What’s your favorite color? Why?
    Blue, it’s hues encompass the ocean and the sky
  6. Do you have pets? How many, what kind, and their names?
  7. Who is your role model/hero(ine), and why?
    Mahatma Gandhi
  8. What’s your favorite movie?
    Too hard to pick just one, but when I’m blue I turn to “Pricilla, Queen of the Dessert
  9. What’s your favorite song?
    Again, too hard to pick one I’m afraid.
  10. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
    Rome. The art, architecture, language, food and people are awe inspiring.
