The Sunshine Award

The Sunshine Award is a lovely sunny flower that bloggers give to other “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere”.

Thanks to Martha Emms, the fabulous blogger who passed the award to me. Check out her blog post here:

As with most awards, the Sunshine Award comes with a few simple rules:

(1) Thank the person who gave you the award in your blog post.
(2) Do the Q&A below
(3) Pass on the award to 10-12 deserving and inspiring bloggers, inform them and link to their blogs.

Here are my answers to the questions:

Favorite Color: Blue! Dark blue, like midnight or Navy. I also love the color of the sea.

304282_2026931639868_1877801839_nFavorite Animal: My little girl Mia. She’s a two year old Chihuahua. My husband gave her to me after being laid off from my job two years ago and she has since become a huge part of my family.

Favorite Number: ew… I don’t really have a favorite number. If I had to pinpoint one, I’d say I tend to gravitate toward the number 3.

Favorite Non-alcoholic Drink: Coffee. Without a doubt, coffee is my favorite drink. I also love diet coke and ice tea.

Facebook or Twitter: I definitely spend more time on Facebook. Twitter moves a little to fast to build relationships in my opinion.

Your Passion: My family. Writing, reading. I’m a huge baseball fan too.

Giving or getting presents: There is nothing better than finding the perfect gift for someone I love. Getting is always nice too.

Favorite Day: I love Tuesday. That’s my early day at work and I love having the afternoon off to do whatever I want. Saturday’s are always awesome too.

Favorite Flowers: I love lilies, sunflowers and daises, but honestly I’ve never met a flower I didn’t like. Anything with a lot of color is perfect.

Finally, these are the 10 fantastic bloggers I’m tagging for this award. They have each inspired me at some time or another. Now I must go share the good news. Watch for their posts to be up soon.

  1. Aww! Thank you Dana! I don’t think I’ve ever received this one before. How sweet! I’ll do it next month after the A to Z Challenge is over.

    Favorite day? That’d be a hard one. And who doesn’t love any flower?!! So a Giants fan, right? 😉

  2. Hi Dana ~ congrats on becoming a sunshine blogger, and thanks for passing the honour on to me! *blush* Can’t believe my humble blog inspired you at one point or another, but I’m happy anyway. Sharing the like for blue and am also a ‘3’ kinda girl… but won’t give away too much! Hoping to pick up the challenge this coming Friday, watch this space and thank again for thinking of me!

    1. I think the number three always stands out to me because I have three kids…maybe.

      I can see why you’ve received this award so many times. You’re bright and happy personality alone is an inspiration, and that’s not to mention all the support you give your fellow writers. Thanks for all that you do, Nicky.
