Blog Love

I am so excited!  Melissa @ Freeing Imperfections nominated me for the Liebster Award!  I have now been blogging for almost two months and I'm having a blast.  I feel welcomed into the blogging community and to all my new readers, thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts! 

Here's how the Liebster Award works:  Melissa nominated me (and 10 others) and asked 11 questions for me to answer.  I'm then suppose to share 11 facts about me and pose 11 new questions for 11 other new bloggers - how fun!

I figured I would take this as an opportunity to chat a bit about myself and share with you some of the blogs I follow.

Here are the 11 questions for me to answer.

1. Peanut butter or chocolate?  Always chocolate
2. Where did you get your blog title?  It came to me while on vacation in the Adirondacks.  I love lattes and I wanted to spread the love message of basically making the most out of life - hence Love A Latte.
3. Have any nick names? Em
4. Who is your blog idol? I think bonzai aphrodite is really incredible.
5. Are you a jewelry person? If so, do you have a special piece that you wear every day/a lot? I'm all about earrings.  I feel naked without them.
6. Describe your perfect candle scent. Sugar cookie
7. What was your favorite childhood birthday present? American Girl Doll - I was 7 and I still remember how happy I was.
8. Would you rather be stuck in freezing cold or extreme heat forever?  Freezing cold because then I'd bundle up!
9. What’s your favorite social media right now – Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, or something else?  I'm new to Twitter, but loving it.  Pinterest & Instagram are fantastic - I love pictures!!!
10. Favorite holiday and why? Christmas - I loveee the music, food, love, the spirit, buying gifts for people...
11. What motivates you to blog? Healthy & happy living!  It keeps me accountable and it's so wonderful connecting with others.

Here are 11 facts about me!
1.  I never wore matching socks growing up.
2.  I love to wear colorful clothes.  In high school I had pink pants with a lime green winter jacket!
3. I'm a complete morning person.  I like to get up a few hours before work to have time just for me before the work day starts (working out, cooking breakfast, blogging, walking my dog, breakfast with my hubby!)
4.  My all time favorite tv shows are Friends & Sex and the City.
5.  My favorite author is Emily Giffin.
6.  I started a novel last fall - hope to finish it one day.
7.  My dream job would be to own a coffee shop that had all vegan/organic desserts as well as lattes and I would carry almond and coconut milk as well. 
8. I knew my husband was "the one" instantly.
9. My dog has taught me how to deal with the small stuff (like constantly being covered in fur!)
10. I studied abroad in Oxford for a summer in college.
11. I hate unpacking from trips - really just no fun whatsoever.
11 New Questions:

1. Are you a cat or dog person?
2.  Why did you start blogging?
3. What's something you love about you?
4. Who inspires you?
5. What's your favorite blog/s?
6. How do you feel about breakfast for dinner?

10. What's your favorite workout song?
11. What's your all time favorite cereal from when you were little?

I'm still new to the blogging world and I know this award has made its way around so instead I'm going to list some of the blogs that have caught my eye recently and inspire me.  They may be newish or older!  There are many more blogs that I admire, but here are just a few:
