{my favorite people and things}

Cara was so incredibly nice to nominate me for one of her reader appreciation awards! She's amazing and so wonderful<3 Thanks girl!

Here are the rules!

1. Include the award logo somewhere in your blog.
2. Answer these 10 questions, below, for fun if you want to.
3. Nominate 10 to 12 blogs you enjoy. Or you pick the number.
4. Pay the love forward and provide your nominee’s link in your post and comment on their blog to let them know they’ve been included and invited to participate.
5. Pay the love back with gratitude and a link to the blogger(s) who nominated you.

1. What is your favorite color? Oh god, this is so hard. I hate leaving other colors out by choosing just one. I would have to say lime green because every time I see something this color I point it out to Ben..."OMG my favorite color, look!" He must get so annoyed haha.

2. What is your favorite animal? Dog. Straight up best animal ever. Well gold retrievers to be specific. Okay, my dog Marlin is my favorite animal ever. Love you buddy! 

 3. What is your favorite non-alcoholic drink? Sparkling water. Although it makes my stomach look like I'm pregnant, it's worth the yummy goodness!

4. Do you prefer Facebook or Twitter? Facebook. I'm not really a fan on either but I use facebook for more of a positive uplift and self-love atmosphere. I don't see my friends posts because honestly, I don't care that you just went to wal-mart and got cigarettes. I see posts from these lovely people: Christie Inge, Real Beauty Is, Sacred Self, and You Are Enough just to name a few.  

5. What is your favorite pattern? Anything paisley. 

6. Do you prefer giving or getting presents? Giving. I love making cards and homemade things for people and I love the look on their faces when they like what I did for them. It's an awesome feeling!

7. What is your favorite number? 21. I always wished I was 21 when I was younger because I thought everything would be wonderful at that age haha. 

8. What is your favorite day of the week? Saturday. It's hiking day, except for today. Ben's going to Zac Brown tonight and I'm totally jealous. Poop. 

9. What is your favorite flower? Daisies. 

10. What is your passion? I wish I could tell you but I'm still trying to figure this one out. I love art and incorporating inspiring quotes into my collages but I don't know haha. 

My nominees are...
(I may nominate people who have already been before but whatever!)


These are all incredible ladies and they have all inspired me in huge ways! <3

Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Oh Tayla! That picture of you and your dog is too cute for words! Dogs are thee bomb! I've always wanted one, but unfortunately my mom is more of a cat person. I remember I used to be the same way about numbers/ages. I always wanted to be 12 for some reason (well, so I could be swaggin up in the front seat :p). And I always wanted to wear high heels!

    1. Haha thank you! It's weird 'cause once you reach that age, it's like "what? wait this is not what I signed up for" haha<3

  2. Congrats on getting this award! :) Thank you so so much for tagging me, too! That means a lot to me. :)

    I agree, dogs are the best animal ever! I love my puppy Eva.. we've had her for a little over a month now and we're already best friends. ;)

    I prefer giving presents, too. It's just so nice to make other people happy!

    1. aww thanks and you're welcome! Dogs are pretty awesome, yes!

  3. Thanks for the nomination! You and your dog are way too cute. I love golden retrievers :)

  4. Aww thanks for the nomination Tayla and congrats yourself! Dogs are fantastic, but I have to say I like cats and dogs equally :) Daisies are so pretty too.. good choice lady!

  5. Love the pic of you & your dog! You're so so pretty! Ox
