Salut mes amis,
My good friend Violet Boudreau nominated me for an award: The Best Blogger Award! Merci beaucoup, Violet! Thank you!
She asked me to answer five questions, so that I will do.
1. What is your favorite post you have ever created?
I would have to say that I really love the post that I wrote about my twin sister Juliette visiting America. It took me a while to formulate what I wanted to say, and the very fact that Juliette took a hiatus from her one true passion - ballet! - to come and visit me in the States still touches my heart dearly. Runners-up would be when my best friend, Nathalie, returned to Fair Hollow and when I returned to France to celebrate Christmas with my family. Generally, my favorite posts are the longer, more detailed ones because I've spent that much more time on them (not that I don't spend time on my other posts. . . ).
2. What is your favorite photo story you have taken part of?
I really have not been in a photo story for quite some time! As I started blogging more, my photo stories became less and less frequent. Any "photo stories" that I upload to my Facebook page are simply extra photos from my blog posts. When I was traveling, I had the opportunity to be in a few photo stories, and one of my favorites is The Mystery of the Lost Puppies, which was a photo story created by my friend Marsali's mama. I relish the chance to solve mysteries!
At Fair Hollow, I am more often starring in stopmotions. My favorite of those is definitely The Lonely, a music video I did for the Christina Perri song. The song very closely mirrored how I was feeling at a time when Juliette and I weren't talking, and Nathalie had left for Canada (her home) without saying goodbye.
3. Why do you blog?
I blog for many reasons. Mostly I blog because I love to travel and like to share my adventures with the world. I like the idea of having my own little place on the web (and an actual website is something I'm not motivated to keep up . . . I tried!). Blogging is also a great outlet for creativity and something I can do to keep from feeling bored.
I love that we've started a little community of AG blogs, and it's great fun following so many of you. I feel like I really "know" you all - even the ones I haven't actually met!
4. How many followers do you currently have on your blog?
I currently have 202 followers - over 200! Wow! I know I don't say this enough, but I very much appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you so much for staying with me over the years and for leaving wonderful comments!
5. Do you like being nominated for blog awards?
Yes! Doesn't everyone? I feel very loved and appreciated whenever someone nominates me for one.
And, finally, I nominate these girls (who haven't, to my knowledge, been nominated previously):
Marsali and Taryn of The Bolton Girls' Travel Journal
Sophia and Emma of Sophia and Emma: Halifax Twins
Inky of Super Inky!
Violet of Violet, Girl of Today (well, you deserve to be nominated, too!)
Saffron, Violet, Clara Rose, Zipporah, and Olive of The Valdez Quintuplets
If you are nominated, please answer the same questions I did and nominate five blogs for the award (and try not to nominate blogs who have already been nominated).
