Everyone loves sunshine, especially me. To this day I have no idea how I managed to live in Dublin for six years (in six years I think we got like, maybe thirty days of sunshine) without developing a serious vitamin D deficiency and a penchant for Emo-ness. And since sunshine is the cat's meow, I was stoked when Jacqui at French Village Diaries, Lee I at Traveling Sardine Class, and Michel at Our House in Provence passed on this sunshine award to me within days of each other (how lucky am I?). I'll take a little sunshine any which way I can get it.
This particular sunshine comes with a set of questions to answer and it's to be passed along to ten bloggers. Well you know me, I never follow the rules, except today, I'm going to break my own rule of breaking rules, by following the rules (see what I did there... I outsmarted myself).
Favourite Color? That depends on for what. For instance if we're talking cars, I like black, for clothing, I tend to like neutrals because I'm boring, and in the home, I've been obsessed with pops of chartreuse. That said I'm going to say blue. I like the color blue.
Favorite Animal? I feel like if I answered anything other than, dog, Fifty would be cross and spend the weekend pouting and trust me, nobody wants a pouting doggy so, dog (but I really really love horses and zebras and elephants)
Favorite Number? I want to say seven, but that's such a cliché isn't it? And here's a question, what's the deal with seven? Why do we like it? Since I don't want to be a cliché, and I don't really have a favorite number, I'm going to go with 14, The Husband's old rugby number.
Favorite Drink? W I N E (but I am partial to a Grey Goose martini)
Facebook or Twitter? Facebook for the simple fact that I like to see photos of my friends and their children. I swear Facebook and Skype are an expat's best friends. But, I do like to tweet (oh and Fifty wanted me to tell you that he likes Facebook the best and he really wants to be friends with all of you and if you want to be friends with him too, click here).
Your Passion? – Food and wine... learning about it, reading about it, enjoying it. Am I in the right country or what?
Giving or getting presents? Giving because seeing someone you love open a present that you just know will surprise them and that they'll love gives me the warm and fuzzies.
Favourite Day? Before I moved to France I would have said Saturday, but here it's definitely Sunday. There are no errands to run since everything is closed and we usually have lunch at Papa's house that stretches about four hours (this directly corresponds with my passion above).
Favourite Flowers? Hydrangeas, peonies, and whatever wildflowers The Husband picks for me.
