Liebster Award!

Earlier in the week, I was nominated by Kelly from I am Kelly for the Liebster Award! She's a super sweet blogger and writes fantastic posts that detail her life with her husband and her passion for following the Father. You should definitely head over and check her out!

The Liebster Award was reportedly started in Germany as a way to highlight small blogs (under 200 followers) and bring them a little recognition. Liebster means 'dearest' in German, which I think is precious. 

With the award, 11 questions will be given to help you the readers, get to know me, the blogger. After the questions have been answered, you pass the award on to 5 other deserving blogs!

1. How did you decide on the title of your blog? 
The title of the blog, Sincerely, Victoria was supposed to read like a letter from me to my readers. I hope to also have a level of sincerity in my blog that my readers can relate to, hence the "Sincerely" part of the title!
2. What is one word that sums up the heart of your blog and why? 
Like the title, the one word I would use to describe the heart of my blog is sincere.
3. What are your favorite pastimes other than blogging?
I love, love, LOVE reading, shopping, watching Law and Order: SVU, spending time with my little chihuahua, and teaching dance!
4. What is your favorite aspect of blogging? 
My favorite part of blogging is the freedom of expression. 
5. Which project, recipe or idea on my blog would you most like to try yourself?
Kelly doesn't have any recipes or projects, but what I love about her blog is that she writes from the heart, it is evident when you read her posts :)
6. Where does your blog inspiration come from? 
My blogging inspiration comes from my thoughts, dreams, musings and my favorite things. 
7. What is one country in the world you would like to visit? Why? 
If I could visit one country, I'd love to go to Great Britain. I love the rich history of the area and a major selling point is that I don't have to learn a new language to understand everyone!
8. If you have children, what are there names? If not, what are your favorite girl and boy names?
I don't have any children right now, but do have some names picked out for when that time comes. For a little boy, I would use Harrison Samuel which is my last name and my grandfather's first name. I don't plan to keep my last name and am the only child, so the Harrison legacy will die with me, but I love the idea of giving it to my son as a way for the name to carry on. For a little girl, I love the names Zonie (another family name), Harper, Scarlett and Penelope, but haven't nailed down something certain yet. 
9. A long-lost relative leaves you a large sum of money. What do you do with it?
Pay for college, buy my mother the perfect dance studio and pay off my medical bills. 
10. In your opinion, what is the best blog post you’ve written so far? (Include the link!)
My favorite blog post so far has been A Season of Waiting. It was hard to write, but has given me a lot of love and support from ladies who have been in the same situation.
11. Where do you see yourself in five years time? 
In the next five years, I see myself working as a nurse in the local hospital or the pro-life clinic in my area. I will hopefully have made some headway in my Dysautonomia treatment and will be making strides towards a somewhat "normal" life. I hope to also be involved working at my church with middle and high school girls.

For my nominees, I am nominating:
Lacey from The Simple Bride


  1. Ah! Victoria! I feel terrible! I nominated you, and then I never commented on your post!

    I love the sincerity that you provide in your posts. Your writing style reminds me of Annie F. Downs - I feel like I'm reading a letter that's specifically to me. I love it!

    Also, Penelope is such a precious name. I've always loved it, but unfortunately, my husband does not. haha :)
