5.Name a very special moment in your life.

The birth of my two children would have to be the two most special moments of my life.

6.What prompted you to start blogging

My blog began five months ago now. I have an immense passion for travel and I love to share my stories and experiences to others, so one day I thought, why not start a travel blog. After only two posts, I experimented with adding recipes to my blog as well, relating the travel post to a homemade recipe that I cook. I enjoy cooking and love food so the two categories seem to work well together. I enjoy writing and I have made so many new connections through doing so. This whole process has been an extreme learning curve for me, and I am quite proud of myself for achieving all this in a short period of time.ย ๐Ÿ™‚

7.What are the principles that you live by

Always be true to yourself. Love and respect others as you would want others to treat you, and always stay positive.ย  ๐Ÿ™‚

8.Do you have any hobbies, other than Blogging

I enjoy reading and cooking.

9.Do you have any advice to new bloggers

Always write about what you are passionate about, it is always reflected and portrayed through your writing.

10.As a food blogger, I need to ask this: ย Which do you like best: Cooking or Baking

That’s hard. I really enjoy both equally.

  2. Thanks so much for the nomination Lorelle. It’s so nice to read more about you from this award. I gave up reading the Book Thief (lazy me), watched the movie instead. I’m glad you chose your blog on Lourdes. That truly moved me.
