This is a chain-nomination and award given to new and upcoming blogs. Each person who is awarded has to answer 11 questions and then nominate another blogger. Thank you so much, Cori for nominating me! I’ve been loving your blog (and friendship) since day one. Loving it big time.
1. Where did the inspiration for your blog come from?
A combination of reading other lifestyle blogs and feeling like the things I was seeing and doing could be categorized and preserved, and eventually, shared. It takes a lot of energy to be obsessed with so many things, I wanted a space for those things. The title comes from Frank Capra’s It Happened One Night.
2. Favorite Pastime?
Picking raspberries with my cousins at our family cabin in Minnesota. Super bonus is putting them straight into the pancake batter.
3. Favorite Song?
“God” by John Lennon. The Beatles were the first band I ever cared about. “I don’t believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.” Daggers in the heart. Love it so much… That song just MOVES ME.
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Small cottage with a garden in Bath, UK. Or anywhere in the UK with some greenery.
5. Dream hairstyle?
This. Mia Farrow’s hair in Rosemary’s Baby before she cuts it. I know, I know. I’m doing it wrong.
6. If you could speak to your 13 year old self, what would you say?
Stop slamming the door.
7. Who is your ideal dinner date?
Jimmy Stewart! Hands down.
8. Favorite Disney character?
Wendy from Peter Pan. I’m pretty sure she’s in her nightgown the whole movie (and she lives in London).
9. If you were a flower, what would you be?
Lily of the valley.
10. Best meal you’ve ever eaten?
Breakfast at Hatch & Sons in Dublin. Local and fresh, traditional Irish food. Window seat in the rain. I think about it on a weekly basis.
11. What’s the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
Accepting certain things as they are and getting over them. It’s all worth it.
I now nominate Abigail and Allie from A.Payne! A blog written by cousins/besties mostly about fashion. Staring breathtaking photos of the beauties themselves and some no-shame sex confessions. Uplifting and honest. What else do you need?
