The rules for this particular award, the ‘Elegant Blogger Award’, are featured below…
I realized I was nominated for this quite awhile back, but never did it!
And also, I haven't been tagged for anything in awhile and I miss the blog-tagging-circle that used to be crazy
popular a couple years back! or maybe they still are, and I am just oblivious.
yeah I am probably just oblivious. :-/

When you receive the award, you must link back to the blog that nominated you.
Answer all of the twelve standard questions listed by the blogger who created the award.
Nominate five other bloggers you think should receive the ‘Elegant Blogger Award’.
Notify them that they have been awarded.

The Questions…

What made you decide to start blogging?

Back in 2011, I believe, My older sister, Amber, started her blog,
and so I was jealous, honestly, so I started one! I thought it was weird
for a 10 (at the time) year old girl to start a blog, but once I did start it, I found LOTS
of girls my age, from all around the world!  
As I got older, I turned into
also wanting a place where I could publically share my thoughts,
instead of just it being a public log of what I had been up too.

What is your fashion style?
Wow. This is so difficult to answer.
When I was younger, I lived in the color pink.
I was probably the girly-est kid on the planet.
But now, I like more darker colors, graphic tees, combat boots, etc.
What you would probably describe as "hipster", but I don't fit in that category to a T either.
I am a mix of everything I believe.
I defiantly dress very casual.
Where is your favorite places to shop?
Rue21 (they have FAB graphic tees), Cato, (for the rare occasion I dress up), 
 and does band shirts count? I think so.

What would your ideal amount of blog followers be?
My goal is to have 200 followers, and then I will be content. haha!
I dream to have more someday.

What are your talents?
I actually hate this question because I am NOT the type of person who can
easily brag about what they can do well.
But, I am a musician, singer, typographer, photographer, crafter
and writer, though I don't claim to be fab at any of them.
Are you a leader or a follower?
Wow this is tough.
I am the oldest child at home right now, so I am a leader at times,
but I also hate being the leader.
I like to be on the side lines, and watch and follow.
I don't enjoy being the center of attention.
What is one of your favorite quotes?
I am a quote-lover extremist.
Go a little back in my posts and there's a whole post
with about 10 I love.

Do you have a favorite book or book series?
I loveeeee reading!
I am currently working on finishing "Little Women" which I am loving.
I had always loved the movie (the newest version), but never read the book!
I also love "October Baby" (along with the movie), "One Night with the King" by Tommy Tenney and
"Stepping Heavenward" by Elizabeth Prentiss.

What is your favorite flower?

Ah. Flowers.
I love roses because they are the flowers my dad never fails to get me
for my birthday (the age I am determines how many roses I get), and valentines day, and
they just remind me of special memories, but my favorite would probably have to be peonies!

What is something none of your followers know about you?
Um. Well.
I'm not to interesting of a person so not much.
But, a lot of people are surprised by this because i'm a girl (stereotypes I guess) and apparently
loving StarWars is weird.
But yes, I am a girl, who watches StarWars for pleasure.
I nominate:
JacyRayn from "Loud and Clear"
Becca from "In Every Season"
Kathryn (so happy you're blogging again girl!) from "Chatty Kathy"
And anyone else who wants to take it!
