My Blog is Sunshine-y!

A year ago in April I participated in the My Name is Not Bob Platform Building Challenge led by the fabulous Robert Lee Brewer. The camaraderie was amazing, and at the end of the Challenge the Wordsmith Studio group was born. One of those fine ladies, Melanie Marttila of Writerly Goodness, passed the Sunshine Award to me last week!

Here it is!

What excited me most about this award is that I try to keep the blog positive and fun, and so to get an award called the Sunshine Award... Well, it made me happy. 

Here are rules. 
  1. Link back to the person who nominated you.
  2. Post the award image to your page.
  3. Tell seven facts about yourself.
  4. Nominate 10 other blogs.
  5. Let them know they are nominated.
My Seven Facts

I've got four dogs, and they're all named Quechuan words because my husband and I loved our time in Peru so much. (Raymi, Killa, Inca and Tumpa)

I have been known to dye my hair wild colors, but lately I'm sticking with auburn to cover my increasing grays.

My great-grandparents immigrated from Italy.

I'm an old/new Dr. Who fan. I loved the 70's version, but became reacquainted with the good Doctor when I was home sick in November. Matt Smith rocks!

Okay, I give up. I can't think of anything else that I haven't already said on other blog award posts. I'm actually quite boring.

My Nominees

My nominees are in my sidebar. I truly enjoy every single blog that I listed over there. Those blogs are some of the most awesome, inspirational blogs on the internet, and they are written by some of the nicest and most supportive people on the internet. I love you all!

A huge thank you, Melanie Marttila, for the lovely award!


  1. Congrats! Those do make for cute doggy names. :)

    1. Thanks, Nick! I think I may stick with Quechuan names for any future dogs, too. It just seems to fit them. :)

  2. Wow. Wish I had the guts to do fun things with my hair. I so want to try something different, not radical, but it'd be different for me. But I'm kinda chicken.

    Cool dog names. But the Killa one makes me laugh. How do you pronounce it? Cause when I look at it, I see kill-ah, like killer with an 'ah' on the end to sound gangsta.

    So can you tell us what they mean? Or are they just Peruvian names?

    1. Killa does look like Kill-ah, but it's actually Kee-la. Maybe I should e-mail you about what they mean, so you don't have to come back. :)

  3. Congrats on the award, Lara, but I couldn't find the list you nominated. Oh, well.

    1. It's just the regular blog roll over there to the right. Thanks for coming by!
