Last week, Katherine of Choosing Balance so kindly nominated me for the Sunshine Blogger Award. Thank you so much, Katherine!
She posed 11 very thoughtful questions, which I’ll answer here:
1. Why did you decide to start blogging?
I have always loved writing, and thought this would be a great outlet. I also love encouraging people, and hoped this would be a good platform to do so!
2. What is your favorite blog?
Hmm…. If I had to pick only one, probably The Real Life RD.
3. How do you stay consistent and organized with your blog?
Right now I am posting every Monday and Friday, and that seems to work for me. I love writing on here and usually carve out time on weekday evenings to schedule posts.
4. What do you hope to accomplish with your blog?
Similar to my answer in question 1- I hope that I can encourage others and show them the freedom available in Jesus, whether that is regarding food, body image, or just living daily life!
5. If you could only eat one thing the rest of your life, what would it be?
Ok, I’m probably being way too logical with this question, but: scrambled eggs and roasted sweet potatoes. It is my favorite cheap + easy meal and I love it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Also chocolate, because… come on.
6. What’s on your bucket list?
Adopting a child!
7. What would an ideal Saturday look like?
Ooh I love this question. I would have a slow morning and stay in my PJ’s for awhile drinking coffee, eating a delicious breakfast, and doing some sort of Bible study with Josh. Then we would stroll around the farmer’s market and go on a hike somewhere. In the evening, we would either host friends for dinner or go to their place!
8. How do you come up with an idea for a blog post/what inspires you?
Often I feel like God is speaking to me about something in particular and I get excited to share it with others! Other times I just want to talk about a delicious new food or restaurant find.
9. What is your morning routine?
Wake up around 6am, make coffee or tea, and journal + read the Bible. Then make a big breakfast and sit down to enjoy it. THEN spend about 2.5 seconds throwing on my scrubs and running out the door by 7:30!
10. What’s your favorite book?
I absolutely love Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand and would normally say that, but right now I am rereading the Harry Potter series and it is EVERYTHING.
11. What’s your favorite coffee shop?
Sola Coffee in Raleigh. They have delicious coffee + treats and such a fun, welcoming atmosphere!
I’m going to deviate from the official rules here (you are supposed to nominate 11 bloggers and create 11 new questions) and instead just give a shout out to a few people whose blogs I really enjoy. If you guys have time to respond to these questions then I would love to read your answers, but if not, just know that I think y’all are awesome and appreciate the joy and encouragement you bring to the blogging world! 🙂
