So one of my new friends, Nancy, nominated me for an award for which I am honored to receive. Here is a copy of her message.
“Congratulations! I’ve nominated you for a LIEBSTER AWARD because I think your blog is awesome! This is a blogging challenge and honor, should you choose to accept!”
Since I have accepted the challenge, below are the questions she sent me and my answers.
- If you could give someone $1,000,000, who would you give it to and why?
This may seem selfish but, If I had $1,000,000.00, I would give it to my husband. He has so many great ideas but without the funding it is very difficult to bring these ideas into fruition. I know he would use the money to start his business for single fathers. One of the ideas he has is that he would open a facility where fathers could have a place to visit with their children during their parenting time. They could cook for their kids, and stay overnight in a safe, fun environment. They could also receive legal assistance by giving back.
- If you won an exotic, all expense paid trip, who would you bring with you?
I would take my husband, of course. I know we would have a great time because we like to do the same things.
- What are the top 3 most beautiful places you have ever visited?
The 3 most beautiful places I have visited were Maui, specifically Haleakala, St. Maarten and Massanutten VA.
- What tip would you give someone who is just starting their blog?
If you are starting a blog and you want people to believe you, be honest and keep it real. It doesn’t all have to be so serious; have fun with it and be yourself. It’s your blog so write whatever you want, but know that if it’s public, people will read it, so be selective in what business you choose to share.
- If travel were something everyone did as a rite of passage growing up, where would you recommend they go? (one country only please)
I believe that it is important to study history so that mistakes are not repeated and to appreciate the beginnings. With that in mind, if travel was a rite of passage, everyone should have to track their roots and go to the beginning of their ancestry. Wherever it started, that is where they should go.
- What is your favorite dish?
I love seafood. Anything with Lobster is my favorite.
- Have you ever hesitated posting something on your blog, but did it anyway? What was it? Link it here:
Recently I hesitated posting a response to my husband’s ex-wife on my blog but did it anyway. At first, and at times still, I believe it was done in poor choice but I really needed her to know that I am aware that she is reading my blog and trying to use it against him in court. I may still decide to delete it later but for now- it remains.
- If you could move anywhere in the world, where would it be? What would you do there?
As much as I love Hawaii and Jamaica, I don’t think I have yet visited the place I would like to settle in for good. In the meantime, I’m moving to Qatar for the next two years to teach Kindergarten. I would also like to teach in South Africa and China and visit Australia, Switzerland and Italy, on my quest to find my forever home.
- What is your favorite non-blog website? Post a Link!
The website I love and hate all at the same time is Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/
I think facebook has the potential to be very dangerous but it has also brought people closer. In the past year, I have joined several facebook groups and the members have inspired me and provided me with insightful tips. One such group is ForBlackWomenTravelGroup. It is a group where many women share their experiences in traveling.
- When you’re in trouble, who do you call?
When I am in trouble, I call my husband because I know no matter what he will come.
- Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
In 10 years, I see myself enjoying home and vacation as one. I see my husband and I running our own restaurant on an Island. I see our kids coming to visit. I see myself living stress-free and happy.
