Violets & Daisies Brilliant Blog Bouquet Award!

Salut mes amis,

My friend Taryn from The Bolton Girls' Travel Journal recently nominated me for the Violets & Daisies Brilliant Blog Bouquet Award. Merci beaucoup, Taryn! Thanks so much!

Now to answer the questions:

1. If you could have a 'flower pen name' like we have here on our blog, Violets and Daisies, what would it be?

'Une Rose Sous Un Autre Nom . . . '  which translates to 'A Rose By Any Other Name . . . ' which is the beginning of a common phrase that I'm sure you've all heard of before ("A rose by any other name would smell as sweet") as it's in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

2. What is your favorite ever Bible verse and why?

I love Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 best because it seems to sum up life in general, that there is a time for everything including a "time to dance."

. . . which brings me to my next reason. I fell in love with the book/movie A Time For Dancing, and this Bible verse is a big part of that storyline. I don't read the Bible as much as I probably should, so sometimes I rely on books and movies to introduce me to particular biblical passages.

3. What are the blogs that inspire you most?

The blogs that inspire me the most are the ones who've been around much longer than mine (in some form or another) because they are the ones who originally inspired my blog in the first place. These blogs include Super Inky!, As Told By Susie, and Violet's Space. I was so enchanted with the idea of having a blog to document my own travel adventures, as all of these girls have done/still do. Even though I blog about day-to-day life at times, my favorite posts are always the ones that tell about some trip I've gotten to take, and consequently, travel adventures are my favorites to read about on other blogs, too - especially if there are lots of clear, well-taken photos to go along with the words!

4. If you and your friends could visit any country in the world, where would you go?

Other than France, which in my case would be the obvious choice, I'll love to visit Canada again. Also, England, Wales, Austria, Scotland, Ireland, Italy, Greece . . . well, you get the idea. Europe in general. 

I nominate the following blogs:

1. As Told By Susie
2. Wendy's Life
3. Violet, Girl of Today
4. Water Street Girls' Blog
5. Dabbling Dani
