I'm Back

Yes, I'm back.  Back from a weekend full of wading in freezing cold water, taking pictures, building bonfires, roasting marshmallows, and having a wonderful time in general.  (I also washed a lot of dishes, but I'm not going to talk about that.  :D)
Well, I had a fun time reading through four days' worth of blog posts, and I found out that I've been tagged/awarded twice.  So I'll do that today.

  • When you receive the award, link back to All Things Good and the blog that nominated you (Revealed in Time and Abilaine Cottage)
  • Display the award button in the post
  • Answer all of the 12 questions given in this post (Do not make your own questions)
  • Nominate 8 bloggers
  • Notify them that they have been awarded


1. What made you decide to start blogging?

  I am a crazy, hopeless fangirl and blogging was a way to be able to ramble and talk about it.  It's gotten to be more than that, though.  I've made some friends and blogging has become a part of my life.  It's brought me closer to God and my family and I've learned some important lessons. 
2. What is your fashion style?
Ummm...do I have one?  I don't know...I like comfy clothes and I like to look nice if possible.

3. What is something none of your followers know about you?

I enjoy going to flea markets, even though I rarely buy anything.

4. What are some of your blogging goals?

The main purpose of this blog is talking about classics, of course, but I want each of my posts to inspire or cheer the people who read them.  My lesser goals...having a larger community on my blog and making new friends.

5. Where is your favorite place to shop?
BOOKSTORES.  I don't enjoy shopping for clothes that much.

6. What would your ideal amount of blog followers be?
I don't know...not really a specific amount.  Some.  Preferably some who comment a lot.

7. What are your talents?  
Imagining wild things, writing, reading, playing violin, baking.

8. Are you a leader or a follower?
By nature I'm a follower, but I'm the oldest of seven, so I have to be a leader a lot. 

9. What is one of your favorite quotes?
 Only one? This is cruel...
Maybe this one:
"There is nothing like a dream to create the future."
And a funny one:
"Wheee! Don't know commandeer, but it sound pretty harsh to me."
"It is a way you cook things," said Johnny solemnly.

10. Do you have a favorite book or book series?
Les Miserables
The Book of Books series 

11. Out of all of the synonyms for elegant, which would you describe yourself with (smart - stylish - dressy - graceful - dainty - fine)?
Well, I'm certainly not smart in the elegant way, being more of a dreamer, and I'm not stylish or dressy, and I'm not especially graceful, and I'm too tall to be dainty, so I guess I'm fine.

12. What is your favorite flower?

 I love Black Lace elderberries.


It doesn't look like anybody has been nominating eight, so I'm just nominating two people, even though I'm sure they've already been awarded a lot:
Miss Dashwood

That funny quote. THAT FUNNY QUOTE. You, my dear, are a kindred spirit. I mean, it's not like I didn't know that already. But yeah. THE BEST JOHNNY TREMAIN QUOTE EVAH. (Well, other than the inspirational ones like, "a man can stand up.")

And thanks for nominating me!

Yes. I hope nobody ever asks me to define "commandeer," because I will burst out laughing. :D
You totally deserve the nomination, but you're welcome. :)
