Creative Blogger Award

My sweet friend of Elisabeth from Reflections of the Heart nominated me for the Creative Blogger Award a while back. Thank you so much, Elisabeth! {She has an amazing blog by the way, so be sure to take a look!}
Nominate 15-20 blogs and notify all nominees via their social media/blogs
Thank and post the link of the blog that nominated you
Share 5 facts about yourself with your readers
So, here are the five facts about myself. I will try to share ones that you may not know. :)
1. I'm diving right in and sharing a truth about myself that is not-so-nice. One of my major flaws is that I can be very bitter. There are a few people in my life that I'm angry with and my family KNOWS about it. I have to be careful not to say what I'm thinking and to learn to see them as God sees them, even when it's hard. One of these people is very close to my mom and I know I have hurt her when I wasn't thinking. So, yes, now you know that about me.
2. On a lighter subject, I adore BBC! {Ok, you probably do know that one!}
3. I'm reading\rereading several books at once right now.
-Revenge of the Sith by Matthew Stover
-Another Homecoming by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn
-Rilla of Ingleside by L.M. Montgomery
-Dead of Winter {a Doctor Who novel from the History Collection}
and, once Natalie finishes it, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by of course J.K. Rowling
4. I have never been on an airplane.
5. I listen to a WIDE variety of music, from Celtic Thunder, to Disney, to the soundtracks from my favorite movies and shows, to, at my sister's choosing, Ed Sheeran. There are lots of random songs thrown into all of that as well!
I nominate:
Clara | Reasons to Smile
Natalie | A Saved Girl's Writings
Joy | Another Enchanted Land
Kelly-Anne | Beautiful Girlhood
Simi | What's Simi Reading?
Bonnie | Bonnie's Blessings
Hannah | Grace In Everything
Kara Lynn | Saved by Grace
Mikayla | The Bubblegum Ballerina
Shelby | Every Bit of Lovely
Lauren | Loving Our Creator
Olivia | Life as a Young Lady
Bethany | Bright Life By Bethany
Susanna | PurlsByGrace
Jessica Joy | Almost Perfectly Pink
Anna McAuley | Demigods and Unicorns
Can't wait to see all of your answers! :)

  1. Thank you so much Christine! I will do this very soon! :)

  2. Oh, and I have never been on an airplane either!

    1. Sounds good, Shelby! And I'm glad I'm not alone in that. :)

  3. Thanks for nominating me, Christine! I loved reading the facts about you!!! <3

  4. Love this, and I have to admit that I am completely blown away and shocked by the first one. I had NO idea! Seriously, though....good for you for being real and aware of areas you need to work on. We can all learn a lesson from you. The rest of your facts about you are fun! Love you much, even though you have now revealed that you are imperfect. I'm not sure how I will deal with that. <3 :) :-d

    1. I know, unbelievable, right?
      Thank you for loving me anyway! XD

  5. Thank you so much for nominating me Christine! I love your 5 facts :)

    1. No problem! Thank you. They were fun to write! :)

  6. Loved to read this!! And about the bitter thing, I know I have that too but I'm working on it. It's really hard to get over it, though.

    btw, I have nominated you in an award on my blog and if you are interested in doing it, here's the address(?):

    1. Yes, it is really tough. I will probably always be working on it!

      Thank you so much! I'll try to do that soon. :)

  7. My mom is the exact same way with grudges. We've even got nicknames for the people she doesn't like so she doesn't have to use their real names. We need help xD

    Thanks for tagging me! Getting to posting right away :)

    O | Life as a Young Lady

    1. Really? Haha, that's great!

      You're welcome! I love your new blog design, by the way. :)

  8. Hi Christine, you have been nominated for the Summer Blue Jean Award at my blog. BTW, I haven't read the post yet, but I am looking forward to. :)


Hearing from you is the highlight of my day. :)
