Liebster Award, No. 3!

Hello Everyone!

I was nominated by Abigail of Sweeter Gets The Journey for my 3rd Liebster award! Thank you, Abigail!

If you've never received this award, this is what you do:
Answer the 11 questions your nominator gives you.
Think of 11 facts about yourself.
Nominate others, preferably those with under 200 followers.

Here are the questions Abigail gave for me to answer.

1. Do you play any instruments? If not, what would you like to play?
I do not know how to play any instruments. I've been asked a similar question in my previous award and said ukulele, but I would also like to play the trumpet.

2. What would you do with a billion dollars?
I would give a great majority to charity, like Autism research and childhood cancer research. With the remaining money, I would give some to my parents and brother, and buy a cottage with a screened porch by a lake.

I would love to go to northern Poland or England.

5. What is your favorite word and why?
I don't really have one, but I guess I will say 'ethereal'.

6. Do you have any pets? If so, what, if not what would you like to have?
I have a wonderful tuxedo cat named Henry. If I could have any other pets, I would love to raise rabbits at my Father's house, or maybe eventually have birds.

7. What is your favorite season?
Spring, because everything feels fresh, new and clean. I love the smells.

8. Name one thing you are obsessed with right now
Gardening. We're pretty much a month behind because of the long winter.
