The Liebster Award & The Very Inspiring Blogger Award

I was nominated for two awards by my friend, Virgina, over at  a- blog- from -the -heart.  Thank you kindly, m’dear!  😉

So, first off…..

*     *     *       The Rules       *     *     *

1.) Thank and link back to the person who nominated you
2.) List 11 facts about yourself

3.) Answer the 11 questions asked by the blogger who nominated you
4.) Nominate 9 bloggers who have fewer than 200 followers
5.) Ask them 11 questions
6.) Let them know about the nomination

And, though I’m not usually a rule breaker, I’m going to have to break a few of these rules.  Sorry!  It’s just that I don’t follow a whole lot of blogs and most of the ones I would have nominated have recently been tagged (and some of these bloggers have mentioned that they don’t really have time to do the award post).  However, I will do the facts & answer the questions.

*     *     *       11 Facts About Me       *     *     *

  1.)  I just finished watching Man of Steel.
  2.)  It drives me crazy when I see someone wearing plaid and stripes together
  3.)  I almost always have these 4 things with me: pen, paper, camera, & book.

  8.)  If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be? — Mm… there are so many places!  Can I just say Europe?
  9.)  Coffee or Tea? — Tea!!  Definitely tea!  Sweet, black, iced tea…  *happy sigh*  😉

    Great post!!! These nominations are probably my favorite posts to read…..but anyways, I very much loved reading this!!!
    @ Fact 3 on Inspiring Blogger Award….You sound like me!!!! Though I know without a doubt that I am mainly Scottish and Irish. My last name even has the Scottish Crest and is actually one of the oldest Sir names into the world (like goes back to Viking times….)!!! I love learning about my ancestry, it’s just so neat!!!
    I am honored that you enjoy my blog!!! Though I am kind of new here at yours, I have enjoyed reading and will definitely be back in the future!!!! Have a blessed day!!!

      Thanks, Rayleigh! 🙂
      How cool! 🙂 I love it too! History, especially my family’s history, has almost always intrigued me.
      I believe I have more German (at least 1/4) and English in me than anything else. My last name is English & my dad’s family has been traced back to a 16th century (I think) English knight. I recently discovered that I’m more Irish than I thought– turns out my great-great grandpa was born in Ireland. And more Indian too, though we don’t know for sure how much.
      Thank you! I hope you continue to enjoy. 🙂 You too!!

    Wow! I prefer blue ink over black ink as well! lol! I don’t know why? @ Liebster Award # 2- Haha! I guess I didn’t specify. I believe I was asking more in a profession way. lol! Your heritage is amazing! I have 2 types of Indian in my bloodline as well! Enjoyed reading your answers! Glad that you enjoy my blog as well! 😉


    • Aerykah says:

      Really? I don’t know why I prefer blue either, I just always have. 😉
      Lol! I figured that’s probably what you meant. A profession..? Maybe a professional photographer, though not one who usually photographs people.
      Thanks! I love my heritage! Learning more about it all the time! 🙂
      Thank you! And thanks for the nominations too. I enjoyed doing the post. 🙂


I'd love to hear from you! :)
