Weekly Photo Challenge: Renewal

Our dear DailyPost (Cheri Lucas) writes about this week’s theme: “Renewal – This word conjures a variety of images, from bright blossoms to meditating monks (…)”

Unfortunately you won’t find any photos of monks here. During the past week i thought a lot about my awards though… I keep them in a bucket, and lately that bucket is getting dangerously full…! So it is time for some bucket renewal people! I have some awards to give! Of course, i am giving them my own way…. who needs rules anyway???

Beautiful Blogger Award


For this (beautiful) award, i would love to thank my mom, my dad and three special friends! Ms. Purple Rosemary, a young adult in (yablog) Therapy, and Tapish and his 24 hour life.

Thanks for the nomination you guys!!! 😀


And since you want to know about me (i know you do), here is 7 things you didn’t know =>


  1. Morning Coffee – 2 tea spoons of nescafe clasic + 4 little balls of canderel saccharin + LOTS of non fat milk + steaming water. I WON”T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY.
  2. Straw biting – i just can’t help it. There is no way i could use a straw without biting it.
  3. White T-shirts – My boyfriend says i have a million of them. I think i could use some more.
  4. Word coloring – When i have to study a book or white paper i just have to color every word in the title that has a hole in it. For example in the word color, i would definitely smut the “o”s…
  5. Salt – My food has to have it. I can’t live without it (i have tried)
  6. Orange peeling – After i peel an orange (and eat it) i always cut very small pieces of the skin. My parents make fun of me saying i could use a few chickens to feed my orange tiny pieces to. (I am seriously thinking about that)
  7. Flip Flops – What i wear in the summer. I would walk barefoot if i could.


And the award goes to…… my Greek Fellow Bloggers!

~Meet the people behind the blogs~

my Greek fellow bloggers


And two of my 100% Greek bloggers:

  •  Antonia and her chandelier!
  •  Sunshine and her political-social view on Greece

And since i am supposed to nominate 15 bloggers, i ‘ll introduce you my non-Greek friends who make me feel at home


I have a few more awards to spread, so i ‘ll come back with more blogger introductions!

  3. Congratulations on a well-deserved award! It really makes my day, Ioanna, that you think my blog makes you feel at home! I’m glad I was able to spend time in Greece and I was so happy to have all your comments and your company during my trip. I can’t tell you how much I wish I could LIVE and WORK there instead of where I am… 😦 You’re the best. And I LOVE your obsessions; they’re so cute and quirky! Especially flip flops and word coloring….

    Thank you so much for the nomination. 🙂

  4. hey Ioanna, thanks for mentioning Our Adventure in Croatia !! I am glad to be part of your blogging network, and thanks for stopping by our Blog, it’s always nice to see your Gravatar and smile. Of course your Italian friend cannot approve of Instant Nescafe Classic (has to be proper espresso or cappuccino….) but I am with you regarding the flip-flops, can’t have summers any other way…. 🙂 happy blogging and keep smiling ! 🙂
