WordPress Family Award

‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family”

Thanks to Sonal from Simplyvegetarian77 and Shaun at Praying For One Day for passing on the WordPress Family Award to me. I actually raved about them both on my last award acceptance but one can never get too much appreciation I’m sure 🙂

Sonal is a humorous, sweet and creative soul with a passion for world wide vegetarian cuisine. Do check out Sonal’s health tips and awesome Indian curries!

Shaun is person with a wide range of interests and his posts make me laugh, smile and think profound thoughts (not at the same time necessarily haha). He actually also created this award – I feel lucky to have met him here in the blogosphere.

Wordpress family award

The creator of this award (Shaun!) has the following to say:

‘This is an award for everyone who is part of the “WordPress Family” I started this award on the basis that the WordPress family has taken me in, and showed me love and a caring side only WordPress can. The way people take a second to be nice, to answer a question and not make things a competition amazes me here. I know I have been given many awards, but I wanted to leave my own legacy on here by creating my own award, as many have done before. This represents “Family” we never meet, but are there for us as family. It is my honour to start this award. Thank you, Shaun @http://prayingforoneday.wordpress.com/

The One Lovely Blog Award

I’m SO super excited to say that I have won the One Lovely Blog Award (how cool is that!).  I feel very much fresh out of the box as I only entered this beautiful blogosphere 2 weeks ago – so, thank you so much for every like, comment and follow so far and I am loving seeing what everybody else is doing and feeling a part of this awesome community!

The One Lovely Blog Award


Thank you so much to Sam at Love, life & Happy Ever After for nominating me – it is a great honor 🙂 I love the fact that her blog focuses on a variety of different life topics, all interesting, thought provoking or inspirational. I highly recommend checking out her blog!

I’ve been informed that these are the rules for accepting the award:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you (thanks Sam!!)
  • Link the post to their page (done :))
  • State 7 random facts about yourself (hmmmm…interesting, I have to think about that)
  • Nominate those that you feel are deserving of this award (no problem!)

So here’s seven random facts about myself!

  1. I have 2 dogs and they take up so much of my time that I’m considering starting up a blog about them.
  2. Some of my favorite music is by Michael Bublé, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Runrig (right, so that makes great sense right? Jazz,  alternative rock and Celtic rock!)
  3. I’m Danish but live in New Zealand.
  4. If I could choose a super power (okay, three) it would be flying with the speed of lightning, super strength and duplication/re-absorption like the Multiple Man. That way, I could clone myself, fly around to save the world from environmental destruction, visit my family as often and as long as I wanted, and be home in time for dinner!
  5. I love shooting games and manicures (although, not done at the same time)
  6. I have a borderline obsession with stationary of all sorts and can spend hours looking at filing systems and different colored post-it notes.
  7. I’m a natureholic – anything outdoors has got my name on it.

And now for the blogs which I would like to nominate for The One Lovely Blog Awards.  There is still a big wide blog world out there to discover but these ones are some of my favorite blogs so far – they have inspired me, made me chuckle, smile or drool:

Poppy’s Patisserie

Clear the Way

Gluten free Gus

The Sugar Slaying Sisters
