The First Blogging Award, The Liebster


I am honored to report that Reflections from the Journey was nominated for its first Blog Award, the Liebster. This is an award where fellow bloggers recommend other bloggers. Thank you, Margaret Locke! By accepting this award, I have to answer a few questions and nominate other bloggers. Currently, we are in the process of building a house, selling a house, packing up a house, and raising a family and eight ducklings, the latter being much higher maintenance than anticipated, so I am going to modify this a bit. Instead of answering the eleven questions in each section, I am giving myself a much needed “pass” and shortening them to three:

#1: Three Random Facts About Myself:

I am a singer, high soprano. My Great-Aunt Gladys sang at the Met. Everyone in the family thinks the talent comes from her.
I am currently raising eight ducklings, four Anconas (a rare British Heritage breed) and four Pekings (which my husband wants to serve for Thanksgiving–this is still in discussion!)
Much to my husband’s chagrin, I prefer to sip wine out of a small coffee mug.

#2: Answer Three Questions:

If you could give one piece of advice to other writers/bloggers, what would it be?

My advice is Go For It! Write from the heart, show passion in your work. Yes, there will be duds, but in the long run, readers value your glimpse of real life.

If you could go back and relive college again, would you?

That’s a good question. I attended college where my father served as president. I have mixed feelings about this. I learned many valuable lessons, but it was challenging and at times painful being the President’s daughter.

If you could speak any other language fluently, which would it be?

Even though some consider this a dead language, I would LOVE to be fluent in Gaelic.

#3: Nominate Three other Blogs:

Pacificparatrooper (I nominated you because we have so much to learn from history.  You provide us with a front page view of your father’s experience in WWII.  Please keep sharing!)

Bluewhimsywriting (She’s a newbie, trying to get off the ground.  Take a look!  🙂

Raisingfivekidswithdisabilities (You take on the world, defending, protecting, and raising your kids.  Kudos to you!)

#4: Three Questions for the nominated Bloggers:

What is your favorite meal to prepare?

Share a moment in history that inspired you. Why was it so influential?

If you could pass one bit of wisdom along to another writer/blogger, what would it be?

Thanks for reading!
