The Questions 

"What are you passionate about?"

I am so passionate finding happiness in the littlest places. Like waking up at the crack of dawn just to look at the sky, or making your bed because you know it makes you feel more put together. I would love to help more people realize that happiness is in the little daily things.

"What motivates you?"

This may sound so funny, but my dogs do. I will wake up at 5:30am dreading getting out of bed and get my butt to school, but as soon as I let the little mongrels out of their sleeping place, they freak out and are just so pumped to find out what their day might hold. No matter what, they always seem to help me realize that every day can be wonderful if we keep our wonder.

"What has been something you have struggled with?"

I have struggled a lot with depression ever since I was about 10 years old. I haven't talked much about this on the blog yet... but the reason that it is my number 1 struggle is that I belittle it a lot and kind of make it seem irrelevant, but it's not. It's very real. So it's always a continuous fight to get out there and seize the day while struggling with depression, but I'm fighting!

"Do  you think dreams have meaning or are just a random college of thoughts and images?"

I am so sad to say that I NEVER DREAM!!! Well, not never.Once when I was 6 and we got a new neighbor I dreamed that she was an evil witch type lady. But other than that... I rarely ever dream. So I guess I've never really thought of that...

"What is your favorite place to travel to in the U.S.?"

I haven't been to many places in the US, because I'm from Canada. But last year me, my husband and his family drove from Manitoba to Leadville, Colorado and I would do just about everything to move to Colorado one day. The seasons are perfect, the mountains are perfect, and ugh. Just the nature. It's the best there.

My Questions for the nominated blogs:

  1. If there was one thing you could change about the world with the snap of your fingers, what would it be?
  2. If you could receive one gift, what would it be?
  3. What is your favorite way to relax?
  4. What is your favorite way to exercise?
  5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
  6. What is your favorite childhood memory?
  7. What is your favorite part about blogging?

Can't wait to read the answers! And thanks again to Sunshine in Motion for nominating me for this award, I had so much fun!

Take good care lovelies,
