I am thrilled to say that Laura over at Cook to Love nominated this here blog for the Sunshine Award! I’d like to give a big thanks to Laura (who has great things going on over at her own blog, by the way). I’m still somewhat new to the blogging community and I am so appreciative of the warm welcome I have received from so many of you!
As a recipient of the Sunshine Award, there are a few guidelines to follow. Recipients are asked to provide a link to the blogger who made the nomination (see above), nominate 10 other bloggers, and answer a few questions about myself. Below you will find both the completed questionnaire and the fellow bloggers I have nominated.
1. Who is your favorite philosopher?
This is tough, as I don’t know that I have a single favorite. I love wise progressive, feminist minds such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Mary Wollstonecraft and Judith Butler. I’m also a fan of Foucault.
2. What is your favorite number?
I don’t have one. Truly.
3. What is your favorite animal?
Cats. All kinds of them, but specifically these two:
4. What are your Facebook and Twitter?
I don’t tweet and I have only a personal Facebook page. If you’re interested in it, just let me know.
5. What is your favorite time of day?
Dinner time. Actually sitting down at a table to enjoy food and company is a semi-short, but much welcome break from the busyness of a normal day for me.
6. What was your favorite holiday?
Before Mr. Move Eat Create and I moved to Portland, we came up to visit and make sure it’s where we wanted to be. The instant feeling of belonging and ardor that I felt for the city was fantastic.
7. What is your favorite physical activity?
8. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink?
Coffee. Strong, black coffee.
9. What is your favorite flower?
I change my flower love on a whim. On any given day, I’m in love with whatever is at the farmer’s market or outside of New Season’s Market.
10. What is your passion?
Learning. In whatever form it takes – formal education, reading an article, chatting with someone about interesting topics – I never want to stop learning.
And, the nominations go to . . . . .
Congrats on the award and how fun to find out more about you! Especially our mutual loves of running, coffee, and learning 🙂
Thanks, Joanne! It’s funny about the coffee because I never thought I liked it until I moved to Portland. I guess I have rainy, gray days to thank for that discovery!
Just catching up on your blog…. Congrats on the award! Your kitties are so adorable! I also love dinner time – it is the perfect time to just sit and BE with the ones you love.
Grady and Eliza say thank you! 🙂
