One Lovely Blog Award

My amazing co-worker, friend, and fellow blogger, Stephanie of, nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award! I'm so excited to be doing this post for you all today, and a very special thank you to Stephanie for the nomination! :)

This award is given by bloggers to other fellow bloggers, as a fun way for bloggers to recognize each other, especially smaller, growing blogs. It allows bloggers to increase their following as well as get to know one another a little bit better. I love how this award simply recognizes any and all bloggers brave enough to share their posts with the world. It encourages bloggers to stay fearless and promotes self-expression, which I support and agree with wholeheartedly.

To accept this award, one MUST:
1. Thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
2. List the rules and display the award logo within your post.
3. Add 7 facts about yourself.
4. Nominate other bloggers you want to know better.
5. Follow the person who nominated you on Bloglovin'.

7 Facts About Me:
1. My brother and sister are my best friends! <3
2. Even though I got my learner's permit at 16, I didn't get my driver's license until I was 20. (I wasn't in a hurry, and I ended up having to take the Behind-the-Wheel Driving test 4 times! LOL)
3. I LOVE taking pictures of beautifully plated food! (Check out my Instagram if you don't believe me. ;D)
4. Je parle francais! ("I speak French!" I won the Award for the foreign language of French when I graduated from High School.)
5. I have the exact same Nike+ GPS Sportwatch as one of my favorite actors, Tom Hiddleston. (I was in the market for a good running watch, and the one in his exact same color just happened to be on sale. I figured it was meant to be.)
6. When I was younger, I had a phobia of flushing the toilet. (I was in the bathroom during the 1989 Loma Preita earthquake. It began right as I flushed the toilet. Keep in mind that I was only 2 years old, so for years, I would flush the toilet and run away. LOL)
7. I have a "teardrop" birthmark beneath my right eye. However, you'll hardly ever see it in pictures of me, since I do feel that my left is my better side. 

My Nominees for the One Lovely Blog Award:
Tiffany from According to Cricket
Stephanie from Pretty Runner

Thank you all for your continued love and support!
