Liebster Award #2, #3, #4

Hey Everyone!

I keep getting nominated for this award! It seems like maybe everyone is running out of bloggers to nominate? Not that I mind being nominated! I love answering fun questions about myself and what I love.

Thank you to Maysa, Olivia and Farmgirl for these nominations!

I’m really excited to answer all these questions, so let’s jump right in!


My Answers

1: What is something that you really enjoy doing?

Reading is still my favorite way to spend my free time. It is as natural and easy to me as breathing.

2: Do you have a pet peeve or something that you can’t stand?

It drives me crazy when my siblings don’t close their drawers or the kitchen cabinets. I’m not sure why but it does.

3: What was the last movie that you watched?

The first Hobbit movie. My siblings have already seen all three of them with my grandpa, but at the time I wasn’t interested, so now my dad and I are watching them for the first time. I am still surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie, because as a general rule I much prefer light-hearted movies to serious or intense ones.

4: Is there something that you feel like you just can’t live without?

CHOCOLATE, I intensely love chocolate and could almost live on it.

5: What is your favorite genre of music?

Christian music, I guess. That is most of what I listen to.

6: What is one piece of advice that you have for other bloggers based off of your personal experience?

Hmmm. I guess don’t try to write about things that you don’t enjoy and to be yourself as much as possible.

7: Would you be brave enough to jump out of a plane flying several thousand feet in the air without a parachute for someone you love? (considering it is for a good cause)

Yes, if it would save their lives, but if it wasn’t absolutely necessary I would not.

8: If you had all the Legos in the world to build with, what would you build first?

A life-sized aqua convertible. Not sure why, but I would.

9: What are your thoughts on lying? Lying is a sin, but do you think there is ever a time when it is right to lie? (Consider Jonathan and Rahab and the lies they told to help others in danger. Find as many Bible verses as you would like to support your answer)

Honestly, I am not sure. Yes and no, I guess.

10: Would you prefer having tea or coffee with talking red foxes or with talking deer?

I would love to have tea with talking red foxes.

11: What is one character flaw you hope will someday be a thing of the past with God’s help?

Probably how easily I get annoyed with my sisters.

12: If you were to go on one long journey from history, which journey would you make? (Example, with Columbus when he discovered America, or with Lewis and Clark on their expedition. Pick any journey or expedition from history.)

I would have wanted to go west with the pioneers. They were so brave take the risk of leaving everything they knew and loved to make a new life for themselves.

13: What is your favorite book of all time (besides the Bible)?

I really can’t choose. It’s like asking me if I have a favorite sibling (which I most definitely do not)!

14: What is one animal you dream of owning?

Someday, when have more time I would love to own a horse again.

15: Would you rather fill a journal with only drawings or fill a journal with only poems?

I would rather fill a journal with only drawings and doodles.

16: If you had everyone’s attention in the whole world and they promised to listen to you for one hour, what would you tell them?

That is so difficult to even imagine! The first thing I would tell would be that God loves them, no matter what you have done.

17: What inspired you to start blogging?

I first discovered WordPress through the blog Tween You And Me. I immediately loved the blogging community and slowly got more involved, it seemed natural to want a blog and when my parents said yes, I was thrilled!

18: What is your favorite instrument to listen to?

Pianos for sure.

19: What is your favorite sport to watch?

I am not really someone who enjoys watching sports, but I do love watching gymnastics and ice dancing.

20: What is your favorite season and why?

I think spring is my favorite season, although I do love summer as well. I love watching all the new life come forth.

21: What is your favorite flower?

My favorite flowers are lilacs and roses, I also love quince flowers.

Mini-Update

I know that I have been pretty much MIA for the past month and I am sorry. Life gets busy in the spring and I just needed a break. I will most likely be taking another couple week break in June, but I definitely want to keep blogging.

I am done with Weekly Verses for this school year, I will probably bring them back in the fall though. My thought for my summer posting schedule is that it will be more relaxed and probably only one post a week. I’ll keep you all updated though.


I’d love to hear how your May has been so far!! Did any of my answers to the questions surprise you? Feel free to answer any of the questions!

Spring Pictures and Life Update

Hey Everyone!

It was really springy feeling for a couple of days here and now it’s gray and chilly out, ugh. I just want it to be sunny and warm! Haven’t we earned it after a long and cold winter!?

Anyway! Here are some pictures for you to (hopefully) enjoy looking through!


I am really proud of how this picture turned out. ❤️

Spiky green grass coming up through the rocks. Spring……………..😀

For some reason I haven’t taken nearly enough sky pictures recently. Not sure why?

Adorable little plants. 💕

Doesn’t it look like a little flower!?

Lilac buds! I LOVE lilacs!


Mini Life Update

We are in the process of having a farm store built (they just started today)! It is really exciting because we have been selling our milk, cheese and meat out of our garage since we moved here. I will have to take some pictures of the contrast. 😀

School is going well, I guess. I am so looking forward to finishing though (who isn’t)! Just a couple more months and it will be summer vacation!

We had piglets born a week or so ago and another calf born. We also got our broiler chicks! I really need to take pictures of them soon.

I have been reading a lot recently, probably more then I should be. I just read Michelle Obama’s Becoming and loved it! I have also found several new authors that I really enjoy and have been inspired to write some mini-reviews, so keep your eye out for more book related posts from me!

My new favorite food is baked potatoes with melted cheese, salt and butter. I could almost live on them. I wish that I had started eating them at the beginning of the winter and not at the end.


Well, that’s all I have to share today. I hope you enjoyed my short and random little life update. I am thinking about doing monthly review and update posts like so many other bloggers do.

Which picture was your favorite? Any thoughts on my doing monthly update and review posts? What is your favorite spring flower?

Spring Goals 2019

Hey Everyone!

I love spring. Everything about it except for all the mud. I love watching everything come to life, seeing all the grass turn green, hearing the birds in the morning, again, all the beautiful new leaves, the warm breeze….I could go on and on.

Even though it is officially spring, here it still looks pretty much like winter, but the first signs of spring are emerging. Sadly I don’t have any springy pictures to share, but hopefully I will soon. 😀

Anyway, here are my spring goals!


(1) Go barefoot outside while the ground is still spongy and cold. I love how it feels and it is so freeing to finally go barefoot after the winter.

(2) Take more walks. I really enjoy going on walks, I’m just usually not motivated enough to get outside while it is still chilly outside.

(3) Stay consistently active on my blog. I love blogging, but sometimes I just can’t pull off a post. It always frustrates me. I am hoping I can stay active and stop getting annoyed with myself when I can’t or don’t post.

(4) Make homemade pasta. I’ve only done this once and it is a crazy amount of work, but so worth it!

(5) Finish school. I feel slightly behind, but I’m pretty confident I will be able to finish in June.

(6) Read and review at least three YA contemporary novels.

(7) Get back into the stretching every night.

(8) Take at least one picture everyday.

(9) Read my Bible more often.

(10) Work on writing about things that I am passionate about.


What are some of your spring goals? Have you ever made homemade pasta?

Weekly Verse #22

Hey Everyone!

I am so sorry that I once again missed my second posting day, I had a fun and busy weekend and just didn’t make it to the computer. This week I am planning to do a photo collab with Kaelyn and her sister Lauren, so keep an eye out for it!

I found these shells in my drawer and I decided to take some pictures of them. I love how they make the shape of wings or almost a heart.
Isn’t it beautiful how you can see all the lines on the shell?

Here’s our verse for this week:

Psalm 147.15-18

The LORD sends out His command to the earth; His word runs swiftly. God gives snow like wool; God scatters frost like ashes. The Lord hurls down hail like crumbs – who can stand before His cold? The Lord sends out His word and melts them; He makes His wind blow and the waters flow.

My mom chose this verse partly because of all the wind we have been having recently. Yesterday a huge branch fell in our driveway and my parents had to deal with it. The wind has been absolutely crazy, so strong. I think that wind has a dangerous beauty, kind of like fire.

This verse makes me think about how powerful our God is! It is crazy when you think about everything he does, how he controls the wind and snow!

What does this verse make you think about? Do you agree that wind and fire have a similar dangerous sort of beauty?

HELLO 2019! My New Years Resolutions!

Hey Everyone!

I hope that the start of your new year has been amazing! Other then Christmas break ending my new year has been pretty great so far!

All week I have been getting emails with posts that titles are variations of my title for this post, so I thought that once again I might as well join them. I have never been successful at fulfilling any of my New Years resolutions in past years (I’m sure I am not the only one), but then again I’ve never really tried very hard. My hope is that if I try I will be able to complete most if not all of these resolutions!

Complete My Goodreads Reading Challenge

Last year I set the pretty unrealistic goal of reading 400 books. Unsurprising I ended up not being able to complete my challenge, falling 123 books short.

I am kind of proud of my self, that I read at least 277 books in 2018. That is pretty good right!? If only I hadn’t set my 2018 challenge as 400 books. *sighs*

Anyway, I am pretty confident that I can read 300 books this year! I’m excited to see what books I end up reading in 2019!


Write In My Journal Almost Daily

During the last six months or so of 2018 I hardly ever wrote in my journal. I really missed it but I just couldn’t (or didn’t make time for it).

A couple days ago I started a new journal for 2019. I am hoping to finish it this year, filling it only with writing, not turning it into a scrapbook like I did with 2018’s journal.


Be Able To Do A Split

This has been on every list of goals and resolutions I have made for the past couple years, but this is the first year that I am actually stretching every day. So hopefully 2019 will be the year I am finally able to say that I can do a split!


Become A Better Photographer

I intend to read a bunch of blog posts about photography, ask my friends and family for suggestions and tips and find some good photography books to read.

Even if none of this helps I will just keep learning by taking pictures. I think practice is one of the best ways to learn anyway. 😀


Stick To My Blogging Schedule

Right now I am posting on Monday or Tuesday and Friday. It’s working well for me and I plan to stick with it.


Become A Better Blogger

I am really excited to learn more about blogging and improve my blogging this year!!


Spend More Time Writing and Putting Together My Posts

I always feel like I just end of throwing my post together. My plan is to spend more time and thought on each post.

Christmas 2018 Recap!

Hey Everyone!

My family had a really wonderful Christmas this year! It was amazingly not stressful! Until this holiday season almost every holiday or birthday for as long as I can remember something has gone at least slightly wrong or different parts of our family were super stressed. It was really awesome to be able to just enjoy our time with both sides of our family! I am so thankful that this Christmas season went well.

I want to share some picture I took of our nativity scene. I hope you enjoy them!

Another candle picture, I shouldn’t have too many more now that Advent is over.
They look so peaceful.
A cute succulent plant.
Aren’t her wings beautiful?
One of the three kings.
Mary and baby Jesus! Isn’t it so beautiful?!

How was your Christmas? What is your favorite Christmas food? Which of these pictures do you like best?

Merry Christmas!

(Sorry that this post was short! I should be back to my normal posting schedule next week!)

BIBPC #6: Category 3

Hey Everyone!

I am still really enjoying BIBPC #6 and I hope that you are enjoying my entries!

BIBPC #6 Team Bear
Go Team Bear!!

This weeks category was tradition!

This picture represents last night’s nativity walk! My family has been doing a nativity walk sometime during the week of Christmas or the week before Christmas for several years now and it has become a family tradition! We invite our family and some close friends to come do it with us!

I would love to hear about your Christmas/Holiday traditions and plans in the comments!!

P.S. Team Bear is still in first place!!

Weekly Verse #14

Hey Everyone!

Happy second week of Advent! We lit our second candle for the first time last night! My little siblings are glad that two of them can blow out the candles at a time (there was much fighting over who got  to blow the candle out last week)! I cannot believe that we only have two weeks until Christmas! I have no idea how I am going to get all my presents ready by then!

I love how crisp this picture looks.
Beautiful sun!
Isn’t is cool how you can see the flames merging?!

Our verse:

Luke 1.52,53

God has brought down the powerful from their thrones, and lifted up the lowly; God has filled the hungry with good things, and sent the rich away empty.

Does anything stand out to you in this verse? I love how it says that God will fill the hungry with good things!

I will be posting my second BIBPC #6 picture soon! I also am planning on posting a Christmas themed post.

I would love to hear from you all in the comments!!!!!!!!!!

Weekly Verse #13

Hey Everyone!

I am sorry that this is a day late! I am going to keep this post short and I will be  posting again tomorrow or Thursday as well as on Friday!

I am participating in BIBPC #6! It is a photography contest that Megan came up with!! I am thrilled to be able to be apart of it! I will be posting the pictures I take for the contest!

Isn’t it beautiful how you can see the foggy mist?
My mom is letting me use her camera some, now and I am really enjoying getting to take better pictures! Can’t you see the difference?
More beautiful foggy mist!

Our verse for this week is:

Luke 1.68,69

Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for He has looked favorably on his people and redeemed them. God has raised up a mighty savior for us in the house of his servant David.

Advent started on Sunday! I absolutely LOVE Advent! Almost every night our whole family gathers in our living room and we sing christmas carols, read Bible stories, and the candles! For the rest of Advent our weekly verses will mostly likely be Advent themed.

How was your weekend? Does your family do anything for Advent?

Thank you for reading this!!!
