 Misty’s Questions

  1. What is your all time favorite book?  I love non-fiction!  I so enjoy learning about new things.  As for Fiction, I spent almost 25 years surround by children’s literature.  To this day, I still love the whimsical illustrations and positivity of children’s books!  If I had to choose a fiction book, it would have to be The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer.  img_8962

Rules:

  • Announce your win with a post, and link the blogger who nominated you.
  • Include the featured image on your blog post.
  • Nominate 10 bloggers (or as many as you can think of) and link your awardees in the post.

7 Things I love about myself:

  1. I love the emotional complexities of ME! I am an extremely strong woman, yet I cry very easily. I love reaching out and helping others, yet it is difficult for me to ask for help. I am Roda, hear me roar…and meow!img_1809
  2. I have a unique fashion sense that is completely based on my mood! I can rock a dress and heals if needed, but would prefer my hippie jeans, bare feet and a graphic tee! I can go from natural hair one minute to piggy braids the next! I refuse to paint my finger nails, but my toes must have sparkle at all times!
  3. I love that I feel everything around me. I have learned to embrace my strong intuitive side and listen to her.img_9946.jpg
  4. I embrace my creative side. I have always loved art and music! I enjoy creating in so many ways! My art form tends to be gardening in the Spring and Summer. The color and texture palette is endless! In the Fall and Winter, I turn my creative juices to cooking, painting, and designing natural jewelry. I enjoy photography year round, which allows me to celebrate and share my creations. I might not be a talented mathematician, but I feel blessed to have the gift of creativity.
  5.  I so enjoy sprinkling JOY in people’s lives! There is nothing more beautiful than knowing a small act of kindness made a difference in someone’s day!img_2892-1
  6. I love that I am filled to the brim with passion! I am passionate about everything in my life: people, animals, hobbies…when I love, it is with all of me. I have always been told I am an all or nothing person. I guess that is a true statement!img_1237
  7. I love that I have learned to embrace ME completely. The greatest gift one can discover is self-love…img_2997
