Sunshine Award

Big THANK YOU to Team Ninja member, Kris Mehigan, for nominating me for the Sunshine Award. I first met Kris through Pitch Wars on Twitter and fell in love with her writing from the start. Highly recommend following her on twitter and checking out her website.
The Rules: When you receive the award, you are asked to do a few things…
1. Post the Sunshine Award Logo you see at the top.
2. Accept the nomination and link back to the nominator.
3. Answer the questions below.
4. Nominate ten other blogs and inform them of the nomination.

Fun Facts:
1) My Favorite Color: Green
2) My Favorite Animal: Too hard to pick! Need at least three...wolves, owls, and of course, corgis! Oh and also all dogs and penguins. Okay, more than three.
Who can resist the cuteness?
3) My Favorite Number: 23 has always been my lucky number, but also 42 is a pretty perfect number. ;)
4) My Favorite Non Alcoholic Beverage: Green tea.
5) My Favorite Alcoholic beverage: Changes every five years or so, but probably SoCo and Lime on the rocks.
6) Facebook or Twitter: I'm a Twitter addict.
7) My Passions: Writing is number one. Reading and for many years, karate. Although, I'm not currently practicing martial arts at present, I will always be a karateka. :)
8) Giving or Receiving gifts: Giving gifts. Much more rewarding.
9) Favorite City: Another too hard to pick just one! Galway, Florence and everywhere in Japan! And hometown, NYC. Call me eclectic. :)
Beauty of Kamakura
10) Favorite TV Shows: Currently Game of Thrones, Borgias, and Vampire Diaries. But, of all time, Buffy!

Kris paved the way for the Sunshine Award nominees by nominating writers she met on Twitter. I'm going to follow her example and nominate my ten Twitter writing buddies. All of these people are absolutely fabulous writers, and even more importantly, incredible individuals.

  1. Team Ninja all the way (love your ninja pic)! Thanks for passing along the Sunshine Award torch. <3

    PS- Florence :)

  2. I'm so honored! Thank you sweetie! You've made my day. And your taste in TV shows ROCKS.

    1. Aww. Most welcome and deserved! I don't watch a ton of TV, but I am addicted to my favorites.

  3. Thank you for the award, hon! Love your list of favorite TV shows, too. The hubs had told me that some time this week he's going to make me sit down and start watching The Borgias. ;)

    You should look into DaVinci's Demons. We just finished the first season (8 episodes), and I'm pining for more. :)

    Thanks again, hon!

    1. Oh my gosh, you have to watch Borgias! I'm so sad they cancelled the series. Hoping TV execs change their minds, because it's so good! :D
