Quintet of Radiance Award



Hello everyone! I’ve been nominated for several awards and I am grateful and honored because this signifies that I’ve earned the respect and admiration of my fellow writers and bloggers. That means a great deal to me because I too have high regards for the talented authors who have bestowed upon me these honors.


Christine Campbell has nominated me for the Quintet of Radiance Award, which are really 5 awards in one: The Awesome Blog Content Award, Most Influential Blogger Award, Sunshine Award, Inner Peace Award, and The Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you very much Christine!


Please visit Christine Campbell’s blog Write Where You Are and enjoy her inspirational posts.

1. Display the badge in a post.

2. Thank the blogger who nominated you and link back.

3. Using the alphabet, describe yourself in a word or phase.

4. Nominate a few bloggers.



Me – A-Z


Avid reader

Brave, I like to feel the fear and do it anyway (As long as cockroaches and butterflies are not involved).

Cheerful (most of the time)


Enjoy cooking and baking

Fan of Stephen King

Goofball (sometimes…okay most of the time)

Happy (most of the time)

Intelligent (except during ‘Blonde Moments’)

Juicer ( I juice all kinds of veggies and fruits and drink a juice everyday)

Kindhearted (most people I know think so)

Love my family, friends, chocolate covered strawberries, animals, nature and basketball (Go Heat!).

Mondays I don’t have a problem with it’s Sunday nights I have a problem with because it’s the end of the weekend and I have to go to bed early, but I’m still on weekend mode!

Never underestimate the power of being kind – one of my mottos.


Polite, persistent

Quiroz (my Sicilian surname)

Rascal, my little toy Pomeranian

Saucy (sometimes)


Unique, understanding, unpredictable and upbeat.

Vivid imagination

Willing to try very hard to win over someone’s affection, but after so long – click – the switch is turned off – for good. I can only jump through hoops and bend over backward so much.

Xanthocomic (yellow-haired)

Yikes! (I couldn’t think of anything else for Y)

Zzzz – I love to read and sleep during thunderstorms.
