Liebster Award!

I am so honored to be nominated by Rachel from her blog at for the Liebster Award! Her blog has a wealth of resources on leading a natural life, please check it out!


As part of receiving of this award, I answered the 10 questions Rachel asked me. Here are my responses:

1) Do you like to cook? Why or why not?
Yes, I love to cook! I love cooking because it’s fun to try new recipes and I get to be sure that everything I make is vegetarian.

2) What is your favourite childhood memory?
Growing up I loved playing outside–running through the sprinkles, making mud pies and eating oranges off our tree are my favorite childhood memories.
3) Where have you traveled and where would you recommend?
I spent a semester abroad in Costa Rica and highly recommend it–everyone is so friendly, the fruits are deliciously sweet and the country’s cloud forests, beaches and volcanoes are stunning.
4) If you were free as a bird and money was no object, what would you be doing right now?
Traveling around the world because there is so much I want to see still. Volunteering with an environmental advocacy organization.
5) What do you and your friends do for fun?
Check out a new happy hour spot, or spend time outdoors. Last weekend we hiked the Billy Goat Trail along the Potomac River.
6) What television show are you most addicted to right now and why?
Girls is my guilty pleasure 🙂
7) What song(s) energize you when you need a lift?
Anything by Katy Perry
8) What is one of the best restaurants you’ve been to? Describe in detail including exact location.
Hmm it’s so hard to pick! There are so many great ones that come to mind in the D.C. area. I love Woodland’s because it’s all vegan/vegetarian and I don’t have to worry about not being able to eat anything they serve.
9) Do you have pets? Any pets you’d like to have?
No but I’d love one! I’ve never had a pet but I think I’m more suited towards a cat.
10) Do you believe in karma? Why or why not?
Absolutely. I really believe the universe works in mysterious ways. One should always treat all living beings with love and kindness–the way we’d like to be treated ourselves.
