I have been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award not once, but FIVE times. Having done it already twice, this will be the last time I will do it. I mean, if you nominate me, I will thank you and mention it in a post, but I won’t do the actual Award!
My first nomination came from Sophie and Georgia, who blog at Utterly Us. It would be great and I would be very happy if you would stop by, read around, give them a few likes and perhaps even a follow!!
Questions by Sophie and Georgia:
Who is your hero? – My mother is my hero. She raised me and my sister by herself, with little to no help and she managed to do a very good job. All mothers in general, actually. I have a thing for mothers and I’m very protective of them. Being a mom is hard and people should give them more credit for what they do.
Have you been stung by a bee/wasp? – I have. A long time ago. I remember I was in grade 7, P.E class and my teacher was pregnant lol
Are you still learning who you are? – I am and I always will be. In my opinion, you don’t just discover yourself. It’s a lifelong learning process. I know myself better now than I did when I was sixteen and I think I will know me even better by 35, 50, etc…

Who do you go to for advice (you don’t have to answer that)? What is the best advice they have given you? – I go to several people but mainly my boyfriend and mother. He can always make me calmer and my mother can always make me feel more positive.
