It is time to take a little break from the Spring and Easter festivities and give out another award! I was nominated for this award by the very sweet Jessica of Adventures of a Cavemom way back in November. But it has taken me forever to respond... better late than never.
I'd like to thank Jessica for nominating me and tell you a bit about her blog. Adventures of a Cavemom is all about the Paleo way of life. Jessica believes in the natural way of life to better health, and I have to agree with her! She is also a mom to three adorable kids.
The Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award is passed from blogger to blogger as a way to get to know one another and meet new friends. But I'm going to take the title literally and so I've gathered bloggers from all over the world. We have Australia, Belgium, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Spain, the United States, and a bit of Japan thrown in for good measure.
And of course an awards post by me would not be complete without music!
Jessica's 10 questions:
1. What has been your biggest blogging achievement?
I would have to say easily having met so many wonderful ladies in the blogsphere. The support and friendship has been tremendous.
2. What has been your biggest personal achievement?
Being married to an amazing and supportive guy and raising 4 great kids with him.
3. What is your favorite food?
Now this one is really hard because I am constantly changing my mind. And it doesn't help that I have lots of blogging friends who create amazing dishes all the time. I guess my all time favorite has to be vegetable lasagne! (And you were expecting mousaka!)
4. What inspires you?
Since I started blogging it is everything... I feel as if my mind has exploded and I can now look at the simplest thing and see beauty.. in a twig, at a stone.. you name it. I know it probably sounds like a cliche but the truth is spending so much time on the blogsphere and being exposed to so much creativity helps me to see things differently.
5. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go, and why?
Easy, New York, because my family is there. And it is my hometown. But if I could have a fantasy location it would be New Zealand - the Lord of the Rings has left a mark on me.
6. What is one piece of advice that you wish you’d had when you first started blogging?
Reach out to other bloggers!!! They are there waiting with opened arms! You are not an island! And on a practical note, learn all you can about SEO. It has become my albatross!
7. What’s something that your readers might be surprised to know about you?
Even though I live in Greece I could not swim to save my life, until I became an adult, and even now I'm not a great swimmer. I was born in a village in the mountains, so I didn't have access to the beach at a young age. And my daughter said to tell you all that I am a "vampire diaries" fan. I prefer to call it "bonding time with the kids".
8. What is your favorite special occasion?
I don't like special occasions. I prefer to live in the moment and make each moment special. But, if it's my birthday and "they" forget... well.... "wink"
9. Who has been your biggest inspiration?
My mother. She taught me how to needlepoint at a young age and she had me next to her when she was sewing. I believe she was very creative, I was just too young to see it then or to fully appreciate her. And my dad because I get the DIY side from him. He is 86 years old and he still putters around the house doing lots of work himself.
10. Tupac or Biggie?
I can't answer that. All I can say is that I was still living in the States when Tupac got shot. That's all I know.
My Questions for the nominees:
1. Why did you start a blog?
2. Do you think that the country you live in is accepting of blogging and encourages it as an occupation?
3. When you tell strangers that you are a blogger, how do they react?
4. What would your dream job be?
5. Have you ever been abroad, and if so, where?
6. What is the best aspect of blogging for you?
7. And the worst aspect?
8. Do you speak more than one language? Do you wish you spoke another one?
9. What are your thoughts on social media? Is it a blessing or a necessary evil?
10. If you had a second self and you could start a second blog, what would that one be about?
Well that should keep everyone busy for a while. I'm so happy to have been able to share all of this with you and I hope that you'll all go and visit the lovely Jessica at Adventures of a Cavemom, who was so sweet to nominate me even though it took me forever to respond. Thanks Jessica!!
I am also encouraging you all to visit the unique and multitalented blogs that I've nominated. Otherwise I'll feel that I haven't done a good job with this post. And if there is one thing I believe in, it is "share the love".
I also want to thank my son for the photos that he snapped while on the ferry!

I'm Mary and I live in beautiful Greece where I like to repurpose and upcycle anything that is old or looks like junk. Join me as we use our creativity to spark some life into old things. And do it frugally! You will also see lots of photography of my Greece.
