Roda’s Nominations:

*I understand that not everyone chooses to be a part of the award nomination process. I have decided to approach my nominations a bit differently.  The following people were some of the first to follow my blog.  You are all truly amazing individuals.  If only we could all be together in one room…how much fun would that be!!  I know that some of you don’t participate in the award process…no worries!  I just wanted to say thank you for taking a risk and hitting the follow button.  I so appreciate you!  You bring me sunshine daily! 

If you choose to take part, that is fantastic!  If not, Just keep writing…♥

    1. I am never sure what to do when nominated for the same award numerous times. Do you complete them? Reblog your original award and skip that person’s questions? Maybe this is when people decide to go Award free? Thoughts? I knew everyone had probably been nominated before, but wanted to show appreciation.

      1. It’s so hard to know what to do! I currently have five awards/tags backed up and I have no idea when I’ll finish them. When I saw yours was a duplicate AND the questions were the same, I knew I had an out! Hahaha!

    1. I am never sure what to do when I am nominated for the same award numerous times. I knew everyone had been nominated for this award before, but I just wanted to show thanks and appreciation. Do you skip completing awards when nominated more than once? Is that when people go Award free? I like your reblog idea. Thoughts?

  2. Hi. Sorry for the double comments, but when I hit post, it said I couldn’t comment on here… not sure why. I’ll re-create it now!

    Thank you so much for the nomination and congratulations on another one for you! 🙂 I have been nominated before. If it’s the same questions, I’ll re-post it and mention the new person. If it’s different questions, then I do a new post. I’ll check later today if these are new!

    Such a beautiful post today. I loved LOST. I’d watch it for hours on a weekend, re-watching to find all the clues. Great memories!

    And I feel like I’ve been called out by the professor. Nel and I are the bad kids… Haha! I promise to only pick 1 book! 🙂


    1. I think I forgot to change the questions from the first time I received this award, in the hurry of trying to pre-post everything. My main purpose of this specific post was to just show appreciation to some amazing people! 😉
      As for Lost, I still have questions that haunt me! Parts that keep my head spinning!
      By the way, the mischievous kiddos in my classroom were always my favorites! 😉
      I am about to enter the no wifi zone! It is time to kayak! Talk soon! Have an amazing day! 💚
