The lovely Monique over at Mind of Monique has presented me with the incredible Quartet of Radiance Award! This amazing honour came only a week and a half after my Liebster Award nomination, so I couldn’t believe it! I was literally floating on cloud nine the entire day.
I’ve tried to find the origins of this award but it has proven pretty tricky! What I have found however, is that this award is made up of four separate ones… The Influential Blogger Award, The Awesome Blog Content Award, The Inner Peace Award and The Sunshine Award. Yikes – what an overwhelming honour!
The rules when accepting this award are:
1) Thank the person who gave you the award
2) Describe yourself using the alphabet
3) Pass the award to others
4) Notify the nominees
5) Smile from ear to ear for the rest of the day!
My A-Z took longer than I first expected, but I think that was more because there seemed to be two appropriate words for each letter! Here goes…

H – Hard-working: I couldn’t imagine being anything less!
I – Intelligent (98% of the time): I like to think I’m quite a clever little cookie in general.
