A few questions...

Hey lovelies, thanks for your comments about my Etsy shop. I do hope to spend more time on it.

I received this sweet award from the absolutely lovely Diana! I adore her blog with all it's beautiful pictures and wonderful fashion. Her blog is full of girliness and I love it!

This award has some interesting questions attached so here we go....

1. Why do you blog? 
It's like my visual journal. I get to post pretty pictures, share parts of my life and my favourite bit is having blog friends! I could not imagine the kind of friends I have made through blogging. It's what keeps me blogging. One day I would love to meet you all ;)

2. Name your three best memories...
♥ Best Memory one - When Jason proposed. It was so sweet and meaningful. I will never forgot when he asked me.
♥ Best Memory two - Getting married. Another unforgettable day and memory. Knowing I would be spending the rest of my life with my best friend...
♥ Best Memory three - Just having the most amazing family and friends. I'm so blessed to have them in my life. It's not a memory but it's something I will always remember. 

3. Name 4 of the best fiction books you've read.
As many of you know, I like the lighter books. And many series. 
♥ - The Hunger Games 
♥ - The Chronicles of Narnia
♥ - Pride and Prejudice
♥ - To Kill a Mockingbird

4. What are the 5 best movies ever made? (Ah this is hard because I don't watch many more serious movies)
♥ - Blood Diamond
♥ - Lord of the Rings
♥ - Romeo and Juliet (Baz Luhrmann version)
♥ - Breakfast at Tiffanys
♥ - Robin Hood : Men in Tights (for fun)

5. Name 5 things you can't live without.
♥ - My wedding ring
♥ - Lucas' Paw paw cream
♥ - Books
♥ - Journals
♥ - Stationery 

6. If you could change your name what would it be?
I haven't really thought about it because I do like my name (as hard as it is to pronounce). It's unique. But I did 'change' my name to Graciana in high school to sounds more 'Spanish.' 

7. Tell us a unique and interesting fact about yourself
I'm a bit of a Star Wars geek. I have all the movies and watch them all a few times a year. Jason and I finished Star Wars Lego for the Wii. I have a light saber app on my phone and I have crossed light sabers with my nephews before. 

(This is really embarrassing I know...I think I've posted it before - and to clarify I'm posing as a joke lol) 

8. What do you love most about yourself?
Hmm, my friends say I'm sweet? So I do love that. Mainly I think it's my compassion because it's what makes me care about people. And what makes me want to help others. 

9. If you had a 'Freaky Friday' experience, who would you change places with?
Maybe Jessica Alba or Natalie Portman. I think Jessica Alba is a real sweetheart (I follow her on Twitter!) And Natalie Portman is so talented and great. 

10. What is the best thing about being a woman?
I love that we can be really emotional and share our feelings. That we can be strong yet still be soft hearted, caring and compassionate. I love that we can have girly days with our friends. I am happy to be a woman. 

So I award this to...
Jasmine from Lavender's Green 
Karolina from Better than Barszcz
Megan from Time After Tea
Heather from A Measure of...
Sydney from The Tightrope
Rachael from It's Simple Love
Claire from Bicoastally 
Micaela from Dolce Vita
Sandy from Sandy a la Mode

You girls are just absolutely wonderful!! Thank you to everyone that reads my blog and for everyone who comments. Thanks for being amazing!!

P.S. I do have another award I was going to share. I got it from two blog friends so it will be for next post.
