Bring some Sunshine into your Life


You are our sunshine,
our only sunshine.
You make us happy,
when skies are grey.

You’ll never know dear,
how much we love you
So please don’t take
our sunshine away…

I’m so honored to have been nominated for the SUNSHINE AWARD by my favorite bloggers, Roxy & Tigerlino (aka purrfectkitties) AND by my fellow author and book lover Sandra over at quirkybooks.  Thank you so much to all of you!  You made my day shine!  🙂

Rules of the Sunshine Award

Acknowledge the blogger who nominated you
Share random facts about yourself
Pass the award on to 11 other bloggers

Share random facts about yourself

1.) I’ve never understood the fun factor in a slinky, other than the name because that’s pretty fun to say.
2.) I’m terrified of driving in the snow, yet we live in a place where we usually measure it in feet not inches.
3.) The very first time I gambled in a casino I won $80 on video poker.  Beginner’s luck, right?
4.) I never had motion sickness until I had vertigo when I turned 18.  Now I get motion sickness all the time.  No fun.
5.) I walked down the aisle to Bon Jovi’s “It’s my Life”.
6.) Traveling doesn’t interest me that much; I would rather be home surrounded by my Husband and our furkids.

With Sandra’s Sunshine Award there were questions to answer, so I thought I would share those too…

Favorite color? Orange!

Favorite animal? Cats and dogs, but sometimes dogs test my patience.

Favorite number? 8 or 666 kidding… kinda.

Favorite non-alcoholic drink? Water.  Woo-hoo exciting huh?

My passion? Writing, hands down, no contest.

Prefer getting or giving presents? Easy, giving.  I find it so embarrassing to get gifts.

Favorite days of the week? “Any days that I have off from my day job so I can spend more time writing.” <—- I love this answer from Sandra, so true!

Favorite flower? Hmmm… Lilac or Hyacinth.  Both strong fragrant flowers.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so happy to nominate you… your blog brings such happiness and sunshine into my life 🙂 you deserve it and lots more!! You guys are such a sweet little family, thank you!

  2. Stephanie, thank you so much for nominating me. I am honored that you thought of my blog. I always sang that song to my children when they were young. I definitely feel the sun shining on my blog today. Congratulations on your nomination, as your blog always brings the sunshine to my day. Happy New Year.

    1. Hi Michelle! You’re very welcome! I love your blog; it’s so fun to converse with another book-loving friend 🙂 Awww, I bet your kids loved that song. Now you have another little one you can sing it to 🙂 Happy New Year!

  3. Congratulations on your other Sunshine award. I am glad you liked my answer to favourite day of the week. The motion sickness must be such a pain, I am not surprised you don’t like travelling that much. I don’t like travelling abroad because I hate flying in a plane. I feel like I am falling backwards. As I can’t swim, I am not keen on boats either.

    1. Thank you!! Your answer was perfect; I couldn’t have said it better 🙂 Oh I hear ya on the airplane. I’ve never flown over an ocean yet, but I can’t imagine how scary that must be especially when you can’t swim. Hope your book is coming along and you have a wonderful New Year’s!

      1. Thanks. The longest plane ride I have had, was an hour to Spain and I was in tears. I hated it. I am working very hard to get my book finished. Most of my attention is on that day and night. The deadline is the 20th and that is one of the few blessings of being off from my day job due to illness, I have more time to write when I can.

    1. Wow, another one! You guys are on a roll! And you’re very welcome. I can’t wait to read it! I’m at my day job (multi-tasking, shhh), but when I get home tonight I’ll be sure to check them out 🙂 xoxo

      1. You’ve been sparing your valuable time and efforts since the last week, we have not even reached the half way yet. Thanks to you we are warm and happy from the Sunshine!
        Sunshine ❤
