award ceremony: “very inspiring” and “illuminating”

Since I’ve only just begun this blog a few months ago, I still get really excited whenever I get a comment on a post or a new follower. So imagination my excitement when I was notified that I had been nominated for the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award” by a fellow inspirer, Drafts and Expectations (a marvelous blog). And as I sat here writing this post, I received another award from a recently Freshly Pressed blogger; High, High, Higher! This second award is called the “Illuminating Blogger Award” and I’m so thankful for both of these!

Here’s to hoping my blog continues to grow 🙂 Thanks for all the support and kind comments thus far!

Here are the rules for the awards (I combined the rules and nominees to make it a bit simpler, call me lazy if you will). If you’ve been nominated here, follow these four things:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post. (done!)
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Nominate 15 bloggers you admire
4. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they’ve been nominated.

Seven things about me:

1. Give me anything pink, gold, or glittery and I’ll love it to death.

2. I’ve never gone a day with my nails unpainted since I discovered nail polish in the second grade.

3. I have an out-of-control obsession with cats.

4. I love horoscopes.

5. My favorite food is marshmallows.

6. I’m currently getting my BA in Graphic Design but I also love fashion, psychology, and interior decorating.

7. I wish Pinteresting could be a full-time job.

And now here are my nominees who I believe are worthy of both awards (in no particular order, I just love all of them!)
