Liebster Award Winner 2017

I started Joyful lane on July 13, 2017, and I am so excited to already be nominated for the Liebster Award.  A HUGE THANKYOU to This Mama Needs Chocolate for selecting me for the award.

The Liebster award is an honor because it is chosen by fellow bloggers.  It was created by bloggers for bloggers.  This Mama Needs Chocolate has asked me to answer these questions that are specifically selected for me.  I will, in turn, nominate 5 bloggers myself.

  1. What made you decide to create your own blog? It has always been a dream of mine.  I finally took the plunge in July and I am so thankful I did.  Everything about blogging from design, social media to writing is soooo my personality.
  2. What is your blogging niche? Joyfullane is about all of my favorite things.  Traveling being my largest focus, followed by home decor & design, planting flowers, shopping, good books, and crafting.
  3. What is something you like to do for fun?  I love to travel around the world and to go to craft/vintage shows.  I also love to plant flowers in the spring!
  4. If you could give a new blogger one piece of advice, what would that be?  It is extremely time-consuming.  Not so much the writing but the blog set up and keeping active on all the social media sites is extremely time-consuming.
  5. Breakfast in bed, reading in the tub….. Describe one ritual you cherish? Cool Fall or Spring days on the porch….Enjoying the sounds of the birds and curling up on the porch couch with a good book.
  6. What’s your favorite holiday and why?  I love all holidays so I will pick a season.  I love Fall for many reasons.  My home transitions to fall decor which means pumpkins, cozy blankets, and candles that smell like pies.   I love to watch the trees turn the most incredible colors.  And last I love the traditions of football season that fall brings.
  7. If you could have dinner with one person, who would it be? My Grampa Jack who died in 2001 during my freshman year of College.  He was such a smart man I would love to spend more time with him.  And of course, Gramma would probably be making the meal so she would be there too.  I miss them both a bunch.
  8. Dog person, cat person, neither or both?  I love Dogs.  And especially our Lab Spartan.  He is our first kid.
  9. Would you consider yourself to be a risk-taker?Yes! My father is self-employed, I grew up watching him grow his business.  So risk-taking is in my blood.  My husband is also self-employed so he pushes me to take risks as well.
  10. If you were sent to a desert island and only allowed to take one thing with you, what would you take? Vegetable seeds- so I don’t have to eat bugs:)
