Liebster Award nominations!

Liebster Award

Happy Thursday everyone!
Exciting news! I was nominated by the wonderful Amy from Lovely Does It for the Liebster Award!  It is a way to find new blogs that may be outside of your circle. It also is a way for others to find and read the blogs you love! Amy gave a list of questions to answer and also asked me to nominate a few other blogs with my own list of questions. Fun or what?!? 
So, lets get started!
  1. Why do you love blogging? Blogging has been an absolutely wonderful experience for me. I have met so many new, sweet friends that I would have never met without blogging. It is also a way for me to express myself with life journeys and things that interest me. So so happy I decided to start this :)
  2. What is your middle name, and do you love it or hate it? My middle name is Ann. I have actually learned to love it! When I was younger I used to hate it (but didn't we all hate our names at one point?) My mom's middle name is also Ann so it is something I will definitely pass along if I have a daughter. Plus, it makes my full name sound really southern...which I cant argue with :)
  3. What is something God is teaching you right now? Definitely stronger faith. I am someone who plans ahead a lot. Its like I must have every little detail planned about today or tomorrow or next week. An absolute horrible habit. I need more faith and I need to stop worrying about today and tomorrow. I always think of Matthew 6: 25-34 and Oceans by United. Would I have the strong faith Peter did as he walked on waters to Christ? 
  4. What’s your favorite hobby? I have many favorite hobbies but right now, my favorite is photography. I love love love it. This past weekend, Sean and I went to the zoo and I rented a very nice prime lens. I cant wait to upload the photos to share! I am still planning to learn Photoshop and maybe do some pro photography on the side. Baby steps!
  5. Tell us about your best vacation you have ever taken. Definitely my honeymoon. It was my first time at the beach (horrible I know) and experiencing the beach for the first time with the man I love made for an incredible time. I am now constantly thinking about the beach. The warmth, the seagulls chirping and the waves pushing up on shore. Ahh paradise! We are planning our anniversary trip to Panama Beach this September and I can.not.wait!
  6. Tell us one thing from your bucket list. I could create a book for this. One of the things on my bucket list is to work for KLove. I absolutely would have a mini heart attack if I was ever able to work for them. I always check the job openings, like once a week hehe. Of course, I would probably have to move in order to work with them which means I would have to move all of our family members. Sounds like a wonderful plan :)
  7. Who is one hero that you have? When I think of a hero I automatically think of my grandparents. Those two people were truly my biggest inspirations. They both showed so much love, care and had the strongest faith of anyone. I learned so much class and how to be a godly woman through my grandmother. I learned how to be strong and how to be a heck of a fisher from my grandpa. I miss those two more than I could ever express but the memories and lessons I learned from them will be something I will be so excited to tell my kids about. 
  8. Favorite song right now? Keep making me by Sidewalk Prophets. This song is absolutely beautiful. Sometimes I want to be broken, empty and lonely so I can be filled with nothing but Christ. It is hard to put into words until you hear this song. Just perfect!
  9. What is one of your fashion staples? A fashion staple I have always loved is the high neck lines. I am so drawn to dresses and shirts that have these and I cant get enough of them. If you explored my closet, you would think I need an intervention for the necklines. 
  10. Something you wish you were awesome at? Singing! I have always wanted to sing but this is something that will never happen. I didn't even make the choir in 7th grade. Scarred for life. 
Okay! Now for the lovely ladies I will nominate:

and these are the questions:
1. What made you decide to start blogging?
2. What is your favorite thing to do in your past time?
3. What is your dream job?
4. What is something great God is doing in your life right now?
5. What is your worst habit?
6. Something you can't live without?
7. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
8. Your all time favorite memory?
9. What is your best beauty tip?
10. What is your favorite accessory?

I can't wait to see all the responses!
