The Liebster Award #2
Waaayyy back this time last year, I was unofficially nominated for this award (in other words, I politely borrowed it from a friend of mine) and I had a ton of fun doing it...but NOW, almost a year later, I have finally officially been nominated by the lovely Tasha! I can't wait to answer her questions and share a few of my own with some of my fellow bloggers!
Thank the blogger who nominated you and provide a link to their blog (Thank you so much, Tasha!)

Are you a mom’s kid or dad’s kid?
I am a mom’s kid, for sure! I’m a lot like both my parents, so we all butt heads from time to time, but ever since I was little, I’ve been a mama’s girl! Her hippy baby, actually, since she used to carry me around on her hip everywhere!
What is your favourite book?
Tasha, you crazy. Ain’t no way I can pick one favorite book. *throws hands up in exasperation* People gots to quit askin’ me dis question, now, y’all.
Seriously, though, I can’t pick a favorite...but if I had to, right now I’d say that The Mistletoe Countess by Pepper D. Basham is purty darn close!
What is your dream pet?
I...am not a pet person. *hides from flying tomatoes * I know, I know. That’s terrible. If I had to have an animal, though, I’d probably choose a horse.
What are your 2022 goals?
Finish and publish my third full-length novel, complete my marketing courses with my local tech school, get my drivers’ (yes, I’m a year late, I know, I know), among many, many other things.
Why do you blog?
I have ALWAYS wanted a blog. No, that’s a lie. I’ve always wanted a vlog, so I would literally narrate every single thing I did—from crafting to baking to washing my hair—until one day, about two years ago, I started writing stuff down on Goodreads (they have this little section for author blog posts). Well, I enjoyed that so much that I decided to get an actual blog and an actual website.
Long story short, I blog now not just because I enjoy doing it and because I have a LOT to say, but because it’s a great way for me to support my friends and fellow writers and share Jesus with all my followers!
Favourite music genre?
Anything from the early 2000s, particularly rock (not heavy metal, though), and ‘40s jazz/swing.
Favourite book genre?
ROMANCE. As long as it’s Christian. And then, of course, any kind of subgenre, from fantasy to historical to mystery, is just a cherry on top!
Hawaiian pizza, yes or no?
HOW IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION?! YEEESSSS!!!!!! Pineapple pizza is my absolute favorite—and it’s the only kind my three-year-old brother eats, so in the mouth of babes, y’know! (That was a terrible...whatever that was...moving on!)
I...dunno. Most of what I remember is the stuff that keeps you up at night—regrets, memories of peeing your pants at school, things you shouldn’t have said but keep playing in your mind over and over and over... That kind of stuff.
But one thing I do like thinking back on is when I held my youngest brother for the first time. My dad had claimed that not a one of us kids were permitted to hold Jacob—even though I was, at the time, thirteen. However, when he needed to help my mom (she’d just had a c-section and was in really bad shape), I was called upon to cradle the child in my arms and GUYS. Holding that little munchkin, rocking him, singing to him...that was amazing. I really can’t remember when my other siblings were born, but Jacob? Yep. He’s my little man. Seriously, some of my best memories are of him and Joanna, the sister who was born seventeen months before him. They’re my babies.
Are you introverted or extroverted?
A bit of both, depending on my mood, the time of the month, who I’m with. I’d call myself an introverted extrovert—someone who’s really extroverted on the inside but acts like an introvert. *shrugs* All the MBTI types that fit me, though, are all introverted. I am who I am.
Or am I what I eat? Something like that…
Do you like traveling? Why or why not?
I...have never traveled past the states bordering mine (the Carolinas, Florida, Tennessee) and when I do, I go with my six siblings, so… Yeah. I imagine I’d enjoy traveling if it were just me and Europe or something. *winks*

And, finally, a question that you all must answer or else...I dunno, Rina will come and do Rina things to you (man, that's a serious threat right there)...do you ever wear mismatched socks? (Look, y'all, it's late and I've just been through heck trying to figure out how to cite a PowerPoint that I have no information on, so please cut my frazzled self some slack. I promise I will give you aa decent question...sometime...whenever I post again...assuming that PowerPoint doesn't jump through my computer and eat my or my professor doesn't make me drink fifty green smoothies a day for the rest of my life because I messed up my dumb citations.) (No, I am not okay.) (Yes, I would love some chocolate.) (Yes, Dad, I am going to bed now. Peace out.)
Yours in spirit and script (and incorrect citations),
