Free Giveaway: Galentine’s Day Cards

I’m so excited for Galentine’s day, aren’t you? EEEK!!! Okay so I am currently single which I will probably talk about sometime soon… The main reason why is because I don’t believe that I need a boyfriend to be happy. I have a bunch of friends who are guys, and we hang out and have fun, but we’ve all kind of come to an understanding that we don’t need to date. But that is all a discussion for another day…maybe. Let me know in the comments below if you’d like to see a post about why I believe in staying single while you’re young! Continue reading “Free Giveaway: Galentine’s Day Cards”

This craft is a candle with a map imprinted on it, but you can also do this with any design, including photos or your own art. This is how you do it!

10 Diy Christmas Decorations That Everyone Needs in Their Home

Oh, Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells!!! In case you haven’t noticed, it is already December 11th, or in other places of the world, December 12th, which for me is really big. I live my year in expectation of the fun, bright, and fantastic Christmas Season.Diy Christmas Decorations

When my family decorates for Christmas, we all get together, drink eggnog, and listen to Christmas carols while we hang up our favorite homemade ornaments and laugh to (or above) our heart’s desire. There is honestly nothing more beautiful than that.

DIY Sparkle Branches by Happily Ever Borrowed

Okay, so this glorified tree branch reminds me of the story of the Twelve Princesses, where they walk through the silver forest, except in real life. I literally just love the thought of a silvery sparkly branch that I don’t argue with the fact that glitter will get everywhere.

Liebster Award!!!!

Okay, so I don’t usually write posts except on Mondays and Wednesdays, but this post deserved a little bit of breaking the rules…I got nominated for the Liebster Award! First off I’d like to thank Josie from Write Through the Night for nominating me. (Not only that, but I was the first one on her list!)

Here Are The Rules:

1. acknowledge the blog that gave it to you and display the award

2. Answer the 11 questions that the blogger gives you

3. Give 11 random facts about yourself

4. Nominate 11 blogs

5. Notify those blogs of their nomination

6. Give them 11 questions to answer

 

So, as you can see, it’s a bit of a chain effect, but it’s also a great way for blogs no get noticed and be friendly to other bloggers.

Here are the questions Joce gave me:

If you could only read books by one author for your whole life, who would it be?

Can I just read books by ever author? There are so many good ones that its so hard to choose because each author has a different world trapped inside of them, but I guess if I had to choose I’d choose C.S. Lewis. He has so many books and all of them are so good!

Would you rather live in a gingerbread house or one made of chocolate?

Definitely chocolate, as long as it would magically regenerate and wouldn’t melt in the sun! Because honestly I would probably stop every once and a while to have a snack!

You have $200,000 to travel the world– where would you go

Everywhere! That’s a lot of money, and I really just like flying to new places and exploring their culture and natural beauty and architecture.

What’s your opinion on eating while reading?

It’s like eating popcorn while watching a movie! It makes it 10x more exciting! Especially when you’re drinking hot cocoa and eating cookies and reading books!

Favorite sport?

Swimming! I’m a competitive swimmer and have been for several years now. (Key word competitive. I am very very competitive)

Are you more of a talker or a listener?

I’m more of a listener, or prefer the term observer. When I go to parties I just sit in that small secluded corner and observe everyone for inspiration for stories and poems.

Which food group could you never live without?

Vegetables. I love vegetables…I know this is kind of weird but if I just have a bag of prewashed lettuce, I’ll be happy.

A basket of red onions, carrots, and white onions on a table in Erlangen

Weirdest/most unpopular opinion that everyone judges you for?

This is a hard one. I don’t know. I’m very quiet about my opinions, but I’m a Christian and some people don’t really agree with my worldview because of that.

Describe yourself in one word

Creative. I like to think that I’m very creative and write good stories and poetry. (You guys can be the judges of that.)

If you had to rip off the covers of every single book you own, or give them all away (and never own any again) would you do it?

Yes! I wouldn’t risk getting rid of my amazing collection of the best books ever written. I love my books, and most of them are falling apart because they’ve been read so many times anyways.

A library with filled bookshelves and blurred light bulbs hanging from the ceiling

Best thing to do to kill free time.

Adventuring! My motto is this: There is not time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this. And it’s true! Why sit around when you can be off exploring an amazing place! That and writing about my life on my blog.
