Pocketful of Sunshine


Sweet Lisa…a huge inspiration to me at She’s Losing It has nominated us for the Sunshine Award. The Sunshine Award is a prize awarded to “bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” 

It came as quite a surprise. These days I have’t really felt too full of sunshine with everything going on, but I am grateful that our readers still find us inspiring.

Lisa’s blog is an amazing story board of a woman who said goodbye to a size body she didn’t like, dedicated a ton of time, energy and support into exercise and nutrition. Transformed her life and body and is now competing in bikini body building competitions. Talk about inspiration! If we lived closer to her, I would hire her in a heart beat to train me once Gavin arrives.

So, for the Sunshine Award, you have to answer the following questions (which Adam and I did together) and then nominate 10 blogs who creatively inspire.

The 10 questions and our answers:

  • Favorite color: Orange…after all according to South Korea, it was the color of the season.Image 6
  • Favorite animal: goat dog…have you met Eunee?


  • Favorite number: 6 It was Adam’s baseball number all through his career and we have used it ever since…for everything. We even lived once in apartment number 6…we knew it was meant to be.
  • Favorite non-alcoholic drink: coffee (you should see us if we don’t have our daily cup) But in all honesty, Breakfast has always been a time for us to sit together over a yummy feast that Adam usually cooks up and we enjoy together each morning.
  • Facebook or Twitter: Facebook…even though it truly isn’t a favorite of ours either. It really just enables too much to too many. Somethings should be kept personal and it seems at times to be an attention/ self fulfilling/ self actualization type tool. (Yes I know we are bloggers and “put it out there in many ways of social media,” but there has to be limits.
  • Our passion:  To find happiness in everything we do
  • Favorite pattern: hmmm… We both dress in pretty much solids…so, maybe the answer is, we are boring and don’t like pattern 🙂
  • Favorite day of the week: Everyday is the same to us right now. However, Thursday nights is Person of Interest and we do love that show.
  • Favorite flower: peonies, gerber daisies, white roses and liles … My wedding bouquet.IMG_7492
