Spreading the Sunshine!!!

Hola Readers!  I have been nominated for another award.  This time around its the Sunshine Blogger Award.  I searched the web for what this award represents and this is what I found.  Apparently it is a prize awarded to "bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere"  My heartfelt thanks to Sarah of A Cat  Like Curiosity for awarding me this precious prize.  A BIG hug and a smacking kiss on the cheek Sarah!  I so appreciate YOU!  If you have not checked out her blog, I urge you to do so.  She is one amazing, curious and lovely lady.

As an award winner there are some rules you gotta follow.  Here are the rules:

1)  Include award logo in a post or on your blog page.
2)  Answer 10 questions about yourself (same one I answer below).
3)  Nominate 10-12 other fabulous bloggers.
4)  Link your nominees to the post and comment on their blog letting them know about the award.
5)  Share the love and link the person who nominated you.

Ten Questions & Answers...

1)   What would you most want to change about yourself?  My truth at this point in my life is that I would change absolutely nothing about myself.  I totally embrace who I am just as I am! Flaws and all!

2)   What is your theme song?  Black Butterfly by Deniece Williams 

3)   One part of your life, a memory, action, etc. that you wish you could surgically remove from your brain?  A memory I wish I could surgically remove from my brain would have to be one from age 12 when I was kidnapped and raped for 3 days before the authorities finally found me.

4)   What generation do you wish you had been a part of?  I find the 1800's fascinating!  There is a mystery and hidden beauty, strength and power behind the woman of this era.  I also love the fashion of that era as well.

5)   What was your favorite childhood toy?  As a child, I loved to read, read and read but not sure if books are considered toys.  So my favorite childhood toy would have to be Paper Dolls!  I loved to dress them up in different outfits and mix and match. 

6)   What is your favorite house-cleaning chore?  I really enjoy washing the dishes...

7)   Do you twitter?  I do twitter but only when I have to; I prefer a more friendlier or direct method of interaction.  I view twitter more as a networking "announcement" forum.

8)   Any goals?  My most immediate goals are to settle in comfortably now that I am back home in Miami then make a plan of action towards other goals such as: look into freelance writing, building my Etsy Shop,  do more painting to add to my artwork, blog more!

9)   Do you really drink margaritas all the time?  As a matter of love, I'm not much of an alcohol drinker (prefer tea) but margaritas with extra salt is my fave drink, but no, I really do not drink margaritas all the time.   

10) What is the ugliest car you've ever driven and were you embarrassed to be seen in it?  My first car was a rusted, old beat-up, baby blue 2-door Monte Carlo; did I think it was ugly?  Probably.  Was I embarrassed to be seen in it?  Nope, I clearly remember feeling proud!  I was 18 and purchased my own car!

  4. Whoa! I didn't know about your experiences when you were 12. That is such an awful thing to have happened. I don't even have the words at all.

    I hope you are well in Miami and not too affected by Isaac. Also, I didn't know you had an Etsy store either. How did I not know this?

    Off to check it out now,

    Take care mi amiga,


    1. No words needed mi Amiga. An awful experience...yea, but I survived it! I'm a stronger, loving person for it. Isaac was no threat to our safety, other than banging on windows and stomping on rooftops, thank God.

      About the Etsy store, it's still a work in progress. Still contemplated on items. Not sure, if I want to sell any of my artwork or collectible keepsakes as of yet. We'll see.

      Your have yourself a wonder weekend! Catch ya round blogosphere Mi Amiga Sarah! Tootles!
