The Sunflower Blogger Award

 Recently my dear friend Jazzmin from Blessings n' Sweet Tea nominated my blog for the Sunflower award. Be sure to stop by her blog, as I find that I am always encouraged by her posts!

Here are the questions Jazzmin created for those she  nominated for the Sunflower award:

1.  What is your passion in life or your most favorite hobby that you are passionate about?
I have several hobbies, but sewing is my favorite and I spend a lot of my time each week sewing for our family business. 
 2.  What is your favorite bible verse that most strengthens you?
Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." This verse has always been my favorite! It has comforted and encouraged me when I was unsure of what the future may hold.

3.  Where in the world would you like to travel to for your next vacation?
When I was about ten my parents took my sisters and I to Williamsburg, VA. I would love to visit Williamsburg again.

4.  What about blogging do you most enjoy?
It has been such a blessing to connect with like minded ladies around the country! So many have become special friends and truly a source of encouragement.

5.  Your favorite style of music?
I love classical music, hymns and music from old musicals. I can't really decide which is my favorite though. : )
 6.  Do you know what your name means?  
Sarah means "princess" and when I was a little girl I was thrilled to make that discovery!

7.  What type of landscape do you find most beautiful: mountains, prairies, canyons, beaches, etc.?
I love the rolling hills and farmland in our area, also the lakes. We live in the finger lakes region, and it is beautiful.

8.  What is something nostalgic to you about your childhood that you cherish in your memories?
Oh, there are so many things! I loved growing up in the country, raising chickens, bringing home kittens, baking blackberry pies with my mom. I guess it is a lot of little things. : )

9.  Which season is your favorite?
Definitely spring! I love the flowers and new life everywhere.

 10.  If you could be a prodigy at something, what would you want it to be?
Probably playing the piano. I can play a little, but I wish I were more accomplished at playing.

Thank you Jazzmin for including my blog. : ) 

Hope you are all enjoying a lovely week!


  1. Enjoyed reading your answers. Jeremiah 29:11 is a wonderful verse! It is awesome how we can know when our plans do not work out that God has even better plans for us, and He is powerful enough to open doors no one can close and close doors no one can open.

    Williamsburg sounds fascinating, and the piano photo is lovely!

  2. How very special to share some of your heart with us! I enjoy your blog and your post! I also have enjoyed having you in my life through blogging...

  3. Enjoyed reading this post and finding out a little about you. I've always wanted to go to Williamsburg and learn to play the piano better...maybe some day.

  4. What a wonderful blessing to get to know you a little more through your answers, dear friend.
    Oh what a glorious verse Jer. 29:11 is. It is surely one of my favorites also, and I was encouraged by your words on why it strengthens you.
    Your name meaning is so neat! I know many Sarahs and I never knew that.
    I thought that you might answer the first question with "sewing" and you did! You are such an incredible seamstress and your use of your talent to make clothing that is modest and glorifies God and just beautiful pieces overall is an inspiration.

    I loved getting to read your responses and am so glad you got the chance to do a post for your award :)

    Blessings to you!
    May you have a wonderful week.

  5. Hello Sarah! You have written a delightful post and I must say the sweet Jazzmin nominated a wonderful lady and blog :) It truly was a joy to read your answers to her questions.

    Enjoy your week. Hugs to you!

  6. Congratulations on the Sunshine Award. How nice. It is just cheerful and bright. Have a great day.
