The Sunshine Blogger Award

I started the other day with a happy dance. Jenny from My Garden surprised me with news that she had nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger award. It is exciting, humbling, and special to have a fellow blogger encourage a newbie blogger like me!!

Thank you Jenny!! Please check out her blog, My Garden ~ a Kiwi’s take on life, to get acquainted with her love for nature, flowers, environmental preservation, family life, writing, and about life in New Zealand. I hope you enjoy her writings as much as I do.

Below are my responses to Jenny’s questions:

  1. Who inspires you and why?

I’ve thought long and hard about this question and had difficulty naming just one person. Then it occurred to me that people who inspire you change through different seasons of life. In my current life season, my kids’ enthusiasm and general wonder about the world show me that life is an exciting adventure. They can’t wait for morning because that means more play; me on the other hand, I can’t wait for night so I can stop playing and can sleep instead.

2. Where is the most relaxing place you have been?

My couch on a sunny afternoon with my kids and husband napping.

3. What song/ music puts you in a good mood?

Contemporary Christian music, especially Toby Mac and Jasmine Murray!

4. What kind of weather do you like the most?

Sunny with mild warmth and a nice cool breeze.

5. Do you have a favorite quote you like to share?

So many!! But if I had to choose one, it would have to Henry David Thoreau who inspires me with his boundless love for nature, simplistic living, and solitude.

“I love a broad margin to my life.”

My nominations:

  1. Quaint Revival
  2. Running Ruminations
  3. Stella Tarakson
  4. The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

My questions:

  1. What is your favorite thing to do on the weekends?
  2. What is one thing you like about yourself and why?
  3. How do you stay motivated to blog?
  4. What’s the best advice you got?

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. Thank you! I enjoy reading your posts and hearing your comments. The quotes you use are very encouraging too. It made me happy to nominate you…I hope you get a chance to answer the questions and make your nominations, but I understand if you decide to pass this time. It does take a bit of time to complete. Anyways, you’re Sunshine!
