Before kicking this off, I thought I’d provide a little insight on what is the Liebster Award (you’re welcome).

The Liebster Award is an award passed around small blogs as a way to put a bit of spotlight on the blogs. When someone nominates you for this award they pose 11 questions that need to be answered in the form of a blog post. It makes for a fun way to get know people in the blogging community.

Without further ado, here are my answers to Robyn’s questions:

  1. What is your favorite season? Why? Summer! The beach, fresh produce, daily ice cream consumption, picnics and outdoor activity.
  2. Where do you want to travel most? I’m always down for traveling anywhere. However, the Island of Capri is definitely at the top of my list.
  3. What is your guilty pleasure treat to eat? Pizza, except I don’t feel guilty when I eat it.
  4. Who inspires you? My mom.
  5. Why did you start your blog and why do you continue to do it? I started this blog soon after I experienced a little hiccup in life. I used to be my own worst critic – constantly trying to be excellent at everything and nitpicking the areas that I felt I fell short. It wasn’t until this little hiccup that I realized I wasn’t really living freely.  I decided I would plan life less and enjoy every moment more. From there,  Live Freely was born. The blog was meant to be a tool to keep me accountable and encourage me to travel and do the things that I love and make me most happy. 
  6. What have you accomplished that you’re most proud of? Two half marathons.
  7. What do you like to do, to unwind and relax? Read, craft, drink coffee & watch Netflix.
  8. Describe yourself in 3 words. Logical, With Integrity, Balanced.
  9. What is your passion? People.
  10. What is your favorite quote? I have so many! Here are a few favs.
    1. “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.” ― Oscar Wilde
    2. “We were together. I forget the rest.” ― Walt Whitman
    3. “A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.”
    4. “We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams.” ― Roald Dahl
  11. If your house was burning down, what one item would you grab, and why? My glasses. So I can see in order to run away from the fire.

And finally to keep this award going, I’ve nominated the following lovely blogs:

Here are the questions I’d like you to answer:

  1. What is your favorite movie?
  2. What is your most treasured possession?
  3. Why did you start blogging?
  4. What is your life motto?
  5. Describe a perfect day.
  6. What is one of your pet peeves?
  7. What in life brings you the most joy?
  8. What 3 qualities do you look for in a friend?
  9. What is one thing you love about yourself?
  10. What is one of your favorite things to do in the city you live?
  11. Stripes or polka dots?

Travel Diary: Philly

I really like Philly. I had never been before until recently. I was fortunate enough to have two back to back work trips to Philly. All I can say is, I hope I see this beautiful, walkable city again!

Travel Diary: Miami

I’ve been a little quiet lately but in all fairness it’s because I’ve been traveling quite a bit. Here are a few photos from my recent trip back home to Miami.

My family likes to eat. Especially donuts. Thanks to yelp I found the most adorable (& delicious) donut (or doughnut) shop, Rhino Doughnuts & Coffee. It’s safe to say there were no leftovers.

Marquee letters are everywhere & I’m not complaining! So bright, so fun and so pretty. Now, if only I could find someone to make some for me.

JK. A friend and I are going to give this little DIY a try.
