Liebster Award

Recently, I received the Liebster award.  Thanks so much for for awarding me the Leibster award.  I feel very honored to have received this award so early in my blogging experience, and to be awarded it by another awesome mama!!!  She blogs about mothering and beauty products.  Her specialty is makeup, so if you are looking for some awesome tips, she is your woman. 


This virtual award is a way to welcome new bloggers to the blogging community.  Today I have the pleasure of sharing 4 awesome blogs with you!!!  I am very excited to be awarding these bloggers with the Liebster award.   These bloggers all have less than 2 years experience and have fewer than 100 followers.  As part of the award process, bloggers are asked to answer a few questions.  Here are the questions I am asking of my nominations:


What inpires you to write?


What is the first thing you do in the morning?


If you could be any animal what would it be?


If you could invite anyone to dinner who would it be?


What is one important thing you learned from your parents?


What is one thing you would change about your education?


What is your favorite comfort food?


What time of day do you like to write?


Tell us about the crazist thing you have done lately?


What place brings you the most peace?

I was asked as part of my nomination to answer a few question about myself, so here are my answers.  I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me!


What is my dream vacation?


At this point in my life it does not matter where it is as long as it is a beautiful place.  However it is also vacation where everyone gets along and amazing memories are made with my family.  The food also would need to be incredible.


What are 3 things you never leave the home without?


I never leave my house without my phone.  My new key chain/wallet lanyard lets me be hands free with my kids.  Let me tell you with triplets it has been a lifesaver.    I upgraded to this after “My Crazy Ballroom Night” (see blog for details).  I always have a jacket with me because I am always cold. 


If you could be in any profession and be very successful in it what would it be?  If money were not an object I would go back to my roots, and be a full time raft guide.

Although, a competitive ballroom teacher comes in close.


Red or white wine? Red baby!!!


Where do you think you’ll be in 5 years?

In five years I will have a full client roster of parents for whom I am writing personalized Montessori-inspired curricula and helping their children become life long learners.  



What is one thing your reader might not know about you?


My husband and I hiked in the Himalaya’s for our honeymoon.


What is your tv guilty pleasure? Extreme Houses


If you could live anywhere else, where would it be?  Ithaca, NY


If you won the lottery, what is the first thing you would buy? One of those round the world trip tickets for my whole family.


What is one piece of advice you would give your 16 year old self?  To embrace the questions of life.  They will always be there but that is where the deep work is. 


What is the biggest hurdle you’ve had to face as a new blogger & How did you overcome it?  Promoting my blog has been a huge hurdle.  Promoting myself still feels a bit weird.  I am still figuring it all out.  But right now I am doing research and trying all kind of ways to connect with people.  The fun for me of blogging is getting a chance to connect with people all over the world, and to share my passions.


Why did the chicken cross the road? To give their chick an education.
