The Sunshine Blogger Award #2

Greetings, friends!!

sunshine blogger graphic.png

I have returned with another tag! The wonderful Jenna nominated me for my second Sunshine Blogger Award! I love this award, and I can’t wait to dive right in and answer Jenna’s awesome questions.

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link back to their blog so others can find them. Thank you so much, Jenna!!

2. List the rules and display an award logo on your blog post.

3. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

4. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and notify them by commenting on any of their posts.

5. Ask the nominees 11 new questions.

And Jenna’s questions…

1. What song makes you smile?

There are so many wonderful songs that make me smile, but the first one that comes to mind is “His Mercy Is More,” sung by the Gettys. I love the lyrics of this song. It’s such an amazing reminder that we are fallen, imperfect humans, but God’s mercy can overcome all of our sins.

2. What book gave you the most feels?

Oh NOOOO, it’s another question where I have to put ONE book! Hmmm…well, actually, this isn’t as hard as I thought it would be.

GUYS. If you haven’t read the Wingfeather Saga, then PLEASE do!!! They are one of my favorite series EVER (second only to The Lord of the Rings πŸ˜‰ ). I loved the entire series, and the last book FILLED ME WITH FEELS.

3. Favorite childhood memory?

I have many amazing memories from childhood, so it’s hard to pick just one. Two of my favorites have always been Christmas morning and going to my grandparents’ house. πŸ™‚

4. Favorite self-care activity?

Curling up with an amazing book and some kind of delicious treat. What else? πŸ˜‰

5. Favorite productivity hack?

Honestly, I am not the best at productivity. I would love to be the person who gets EVERYTHING done in a day, but…I’m not. I’m still learning and growing in that aspect of my life. However, one thing that really helps me with productivity is making a list. I love to check things off my list, so I try to get things done in order to check them off and proclaim them DONE.

6. Name three of your favorite bloggers.

I always feel so bad answering questions like this because it means I’m going to have to leave someone out. That does NOT, in any way, mean that I like you less or don’t appreciate you as much. I love all of the bloggers that I follow and enjoy reading their posts. πŸ™‚

Shay at Nor Bid the Stars Farewell, Audrey at The Shadows of the Dawn, and Jenna at Jenna Terese are three of my favorite bloggers.

I’ve “known” Shay and Audrey for a few years now. We met on the Adventures in Odyssey Club and have been talking on there ever since. They are both wonderful, Christian, teen girls, and I am so glad that I can call them friends. Jenna’s blog is so awesome, and I love to read her inspiring posts about writing and life as an aspiring young writer. Her blog is also so beautiful and professional, and she has a very friendly, engaging writing style.

7. Pets with blue eyes or no?

I have never had any pets, so I don’t really have an opinion on that. I think that blue eyes are beautiful (along with pretty much any other eye color πŸ˜‰ ), so, sure, pets with blue eyes. πŸ™‚

8. (because I have to ask this question all the time…) #teampancakes or #teamwaffles?

#TeamWaffles! I LOVE both pancakes and waffles, but I have to say I like waffles better. But not the floppy ones like you get at hotels. Hot Belgian waffles with lots of maple syrup. Mmmmm…

9. Do you like to plan every moment or just go with the flow?

I think it’s a matter of the situation for me. There are times when I don’t want to have a plan, but generally, going with the flow can be kind of scary for me. I think it’s a matter of my sinful, control-desiring heart (I wrote a post about this!), so I am learning to trust God with my life and trust that His plan for me is better than any I could make on my own.

10. Gold or silver?

I love both, but I’d have to say silver.

11. Favorite autumn read?

Hmmm, I’m not sure. I don’t really have a book that I love to read in autumn, specifically. My birthday is in autumn, so I love to read any books that I receive for gifts. πŸ˜‰ If you’re talking genre, I’d say fantasy is a great autumn read. (Because any time is right for fantasy! πŸ˜‰ ) Also, I suppose the slight chill in the air and the colorful leaves make me think of walks in the hills and adventures with dwarves and wizards and knights. πŸ™‚

Thank you, Jenna! That was really fun! (Sorry that I’m not #teampancakes)

I’m going to tag…

Shay @Nor Bid the Stars Farewell

Maya @Maya’s Magic Musings

Madeleine @The Introverted Raconteur

Anyone else reading this post who wants to answer my questions! Just please let me know in the comments if you decide to do this post! (Sorry for not tagging 11 bloggers! I’ve already tagged most of my other blogging friends for several other tags, and I don’t want to swamp them. πŸ˜‰ )

Here are my questions for you, my nominees:

  1. Do you have a favorite author’s blog?
  2. Do you listen to music when you write or not?
  3. What is your favorite fictional friendship?
  4. What is your favorite season?
  5. What is your favorite movie? (Series, like Star Wars or Lord of the Rings, count πŸ˜‰ )
  6. How many siblings do you have?
  7. Do you like coffee or tea better?
  8. In what month is your birthday?
  9. Do you want to be a published author someday?
  10. What is your favorite fruit?
  11. Stainless steel or plastic water bottles?

I hope that you all enjoy answering these questions!!

Until next time,

  1. I forgot to respond to this post once I saw it so I’m doing it now! THE WARDEN AND THE WOLF KING MADE ME UGLY CRY. Oh man, now I need to go reread it. πŸ™‚ **sunshine blogger post coming soonnnnn**


  2. Ahhh I’m so honored to be considered one of your favorite bloggers, Amelie!!! ❀ :') (that's a "happy-crying" face, btw) And also I'm so thankful to have met you and that I can call you friend as well!!
    You know I have a horrible case of scatter-brain, so this may be incorrect, but… I think I remember that you and I first started talking on the Club because we realized we both were fans of Wayne Thomas Batson's books? I just find it fun to sometimes try to think back to the ways I met all the amazing friends I have now, and it's become apparent to me that I first became introduced to a lot of them because of some sort of nerdy fandom thing XD

    And thank you for the tag!! (and for letting me know you tagged me over on my blog, otherwise I likely would've completely forgotten about it again….. :P) I'll get to writing it ASAP! πŸ™‚

    • Shay, you are amazing!! ❀ That is correct (that we were talking about WTB!)! πŸ™‚ I remember mentioning that I loved The Door Within, and you started talking with me. πŸ™‚

      You're so welcome for the tag!! (I loved your post, and I'm just heading over now to comment on it…*sheepish Ezra grin*)

  3. This looks cool! I like your questions. =P How do these ‘nominations’ start?

    And the Wingfeather saga, eh? I just came across that, and reccomended it to my sisters (all very avid readers), but I haven’t been able to try them myself yet! I’ve been too busy to read much of anything recently. But it looks like a great series!

    • Thank you, Liam! I’m glad that you enjoyed it!

      Well, the nominations start whenever someone nominates you in their post. People usually nominate those whom they follow or who follow them. For this post, I follow Jenna’s blog, and she nominated me to do this in her Sunshine Blogger Award post. Does that make sense?

      Ahhh, yes, The Wingfeather Saga is one that I recommend to everyone!! πŸ™‚ I love the imagination and family relationships and themes…and just the story in general. They are some of my favorite books of all time. πŸ™‚
