Can't wait to see your posts, ladies!

The ‘rules’ of the Real Neat Blog Award are: (feel free not to act upon them if you don’t have time, or don’t accept awards etc.):

  1. Put the award logo on your blog.
  2. Answer 7 questions asked by the person who nominated you.
  3. Thank the people who nominated you, linking to their blogs.
  4. Nominate any number of bloggers you like, linking to their blogs.
  5. Let them know you nominated them (by commenting on their blog etc.)

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,

Life Lately...

Life lately has been busy. Much busier than I like it to be, but I suppose it is keeping me on my toes. It's forcing me to grow. Lately I have been working both of my jobs on most of my days, which takes it right out of me. However, as of Wednesday of this week I will only be working 3 times a week until my wedding day! I'm grateful for this, because I know I'll need the time to either get some last minute things done, or relax and perhaps do some fancy skin care stuff or something. Who knows what these next few weeks will bring.

I really wanted to document these feelings of mine as the wedding day approaches, I know my life won't change immediately but it will be the beginning of our future and that is just so exciting to me. We have been engaged almost a year and a half now so the excitement has been a long time coming, but I'm slowly starting to really feel like it's a dream come true.

My wedding dress has been altered - count 'em - 5 times. I am going back in for my fifth appointment this coming Friday. It's funny, because there really wasn't much to be done - all that was needed was to take in the waist line about an inch and call it a day but I suppose something keeps going haywire, who knows. Other than that, it's been an extremely easy ride. I'm getting more and more excited as the days go by and I simply can't wait to dance the night away with my husband-t0-be.

I'm sorry for this rambly blog but I just really want to remember the details of how I'm feeling on this beautiful journey!

I hope you guys are have the loveliest of days!

Take good care,
