The Sunshine Award

Recently I was nominated by the incredible sweet Becky for the Sunshine Award. I received her email on a day where I was actually feeling gloomy, so imagine the smile it put on my face :)

What is the Sunshine Award?
  • It is an award given to a blogger who brings sunshine to the blogging world. 

And I know we could all use a little sunshine sometimes. Like I did, when I received Becky's email.

1. Acknowledge the nominating blogger
2. Answer 11 questions the nominating blogger has created for you
3. List 11 bloggers that deserve the recognition and love
4. Post 11 questions for the nominated bloggers to answer. (They cannot nominate the blogger who nominated them)

Such a fun way to get to know me a little better in the bloggy world :) Here are my questions from Becky..

1. Why did you start blogging?
I initially started blogging to showcase my daily life to friends and family on what it is like to live in Hawaii.

2. If you could relive any moment in your life, what would it be a why?
There are so many moments in my life I treasure but if I had to choose one, I would definitely want to relive my experience hiking the Na Pali coastline on the island of Kauai. It was such a liberating experience that taught me a lot about myself and my love for this beautiful planet we live on.

3. What is your favorite movie?
This is an easy one, any of the Harry Potter movies. In close second and third are the Lord of the Rings and Hunger Games.

4. What do you like best about fall?
Unfortunately, living in Hawaii does has it's downfalls, like not getting to experience Fall, which is definitely one of my favorite seasons. I love the Fall season Hawaii has, but it's not the same. There are so many things about Fall that I absolutely love.. how can I name just one?!

5. What holiday do you like best? Why?
Such a tough one, and I honestly don't think I can choose. I love the entire holiday season, and when I say that I mean, Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. All three of these holidays are so special and meaningful to me in their own way, there's no way I could choose just one!

6. If you could only have one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?
WHAT! One meal are you serious? That's so hard! But I guess I would have to say something that incorporated fried okra. Love me some fried okra, especially my family's. Their's is the absolute best!

7. What is your favorite book? Or who is your favorite author?
Once again this is an easy one for me. My favorite book is anything Harry Potter, there is just something so sentimental about that entire series to me. It's my childhood. Coming into a close second and third would be Game of Thrones and Hunger Games. I really love the fantasy world :)

8. What kind of music do you most enjoy?
I am a huge fan of music in general. Mostly my mood steers the style I listen to. On a regular basis, to be honest it is a lot of tranquil, instrumental, and sometimes celtic like music. It helps me find peace and centers my mood. Other than that, I am in love with Dave Matthews and Lana del Rey. But like I said, I can listen to anything depending on my mood.

9. Where is the most interesting place you have visited
I have so so many places in mind that I want to visit, but as of right now I think the most interesting place I have visited would be Denver, CO. Or Colorado in general. The city of Denver is so alive and young. It's fresh and active. So beautiful, I absolutely loved it!

10. What is your guilty pleasure?
Oh, most definitely the show Pretty Little Liars. Loveeeee it, so much!

11. Name three things you cannot live without.
Let's see here... that's a tough one..
  1. My camera
  2. A good color of nail polish
  3. Green tea, of any kind
