Liebster Award Nominee!

Liebster AwardI was honored when my friend R.M. Lopez nominated me for this award! What a wonderful way to get to know your fellow bloggers and to let your readers know a little about you as a writer. Thanks so much for thinking of me! Please check out her awesome blog, Her stories are very interesting and she is very involved with her readers.

What is your favorite blog and why? Provide links. (This one should be 150-300 words)

My favorite blog that I have been reading lately is Paula is a great writer with such a professional blog. I am continually inspired by her website design and content. She provides such concise and helpful information. Being concise is not my strength. I really appreciate her way with words and am trying to glean knowledge from her at every step. From potty-training advice, to the dreaded house cleaning, she approaches blogging with a sophistication that few I have read can achieve. The other part of her blogging I really appreciate is her comments. She leaves thought-provoking comments and really communicates with her readers on a personal level. She was the first person to “find” my blog and she continues to follow through on our blogger friend relationship. I am also astounded by her bravery in starting to vlog as well. I may be asking a myriad of questions on this in the future, Paula, so be prepared. Thanks for the inspiration and I hope to work with you more in the future.

What is your favorite song and why?

Tie between Happy by Pharrell Williams and Everything is Awesome from the Lego Movie Soundtrack. I know classic ENFP answer and maybe self-explanatory. I just love things that bring me up. Plus they are perfect, and appropriate for a toddler dance party.

What is your favorite relaxing activity?

Running outdoors with a good podcast on a beautiful day brings me back to myself when I am feeling stressed. I also love spending time with my mama friends, with and without the kids. It is not everyday you find a group of women that will play cards against humanity with you. I also feel so much more confident and at peace after spending time with my people.

If you could live the life of any historical person ( fact or fiction) for one day; who would it be and why?

Wow. This is thought-provoking. Hermione Granger. I mean, she is smart and fierce. Plus she is magical. I am just a plain ol’ muggle. It would be fun to instantly conjure something up to help me juggle being at two places at once. Or maybe a spell to mute a child screaming about the wrong color carrot…

What motivated you to start blogging?

I have too many ideas all of the time and they just tend to spill out into all areas of my life, but never in any one direction. Plus, I wanted something that was adult. I love being home, but needed an outlet that let me feel like I brought something worthwhile to the world outside of my own home. It has proven to provide a connectedness to myself and others that I did not anticipate.

What is your favorite book? 

I love so many, another hard question. I really enjoy the Mysterious Benedict Society trilogy, The Hunger Games and Harry Potter. In other news, I read more than YA.

My all-time favorite book is probably the Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It is fantasy, which I do not always read, but he has created this unique world which I find to be utterly fascinating. It is not a quick read, but for sure worth it.

Dark Matter is also high on my list. Quantum Physics in an approachable and engaging story. Sign me up.


In conclusionI cannot follow rules apparently. I cannot narrow and of these questions down because I pretty much love everything. The world is a sea of endless opportunities waiting to happen.

I hope you’ve enjoyed learning a bit more about me.  I would love to hear from my readers– What is one thing you would like to know about me?

Easter Ideas for Toddlers

    I’m so glad you had a good time writing this!! It was fun learning more about you … Such as we both have a love of all things Potter!!!! I would adore being Hermoine for a day!! 🙂

  • Addison! I’m honored to hold the position of favorite blog in your heart. I was reading my blog feed updates and was like…wait…is this me she’s talking about? I hope I can continue to meet your expectations with Her Life Is Love 🙂 And of course, feel free to ask me anything if you ever start with YouTube! It’d be great to know more vlogging moms!

    I didn’t watch the Lego Movie, so I’ll check out that song on YouTube. We always love a toddler dance party in our home. My question for you: If you and your son were to go on a overnight trip together (only you and your son!) where would you choose to go?

  • Thank you for the nominee! Someone suggested I start a blog because of my stories that I was sharing about life with my threenager so I took a chance & started one. My hope is to connect to other moms through my stories & struggles.

    One of my favorite blogs is Mommy Shorts at I enjoy reading her stories as she lives in New York with two little girls. I admire how she does the New York city living with kids. For some reason, I am fascinated seeing how people live in big cities. While I’ve always dreamed about living downtown in a big city, I know I couldn’t do it so I enjoy reading about the ones that do. It gives me a chance to live vicariously through them so to speak.
    My favorite tv shows are Scandal & Shameless. I love Scandal for the drama that it brings each week. I look forward to my Thursday evening show with my big glass of wine. I became addicted to Shameless a few years back & ended up binge watching season 1 over a weekend. It’s a show that is so warped but you can’t stop watching it.
    If I had an endless funds, I would travel to beaches all over the world. My dream vacation is just going somewhere that I can tuck my toes into white sand & look at the blue water. I would love to just curl up with a good book & listen to the water while soaking up the sun.
    I think the biggest challenge for me, is trying to write to be able to connect to people. Being able to write where people will understand where I am coming from. I always start to doubt myself if I wrote it properly or if I should change it down the road but I’ve been better at my drafts. I usually write 2 or 3 drafts before I get my story the right way it should be told.
    My favorite book is tough. I love reading & have a few favorites, but have to say I’m a huge fan of Jen Lancaster & my all time favorite is Bitter is the New Black. She has a few memoirs under her belt & that is one that I have read multiple times. Also, another is Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist. There was something about her book that I couldn’t put it down & it was comforting while reading it.
