    It is great to learn more about you! I will be sure to post a reply to this tomorrow. As far as the last question (you answered) I would have to say that I love chocolate on my vanilla ice cream. So I would say both please!

  2. Tanya @ Mom's Small Victories says:

    I love blog awards because it helps us get to know you better. I used to play piano as a kid and can’t anymore because Rheumatoid Arthritis has damaged my hands. I really miss it and enjoyed playing classical music. It was really relaxing, even our doggie would come lie by my feet as I played and take a nap. I will have to settle for teaching my 3 boys to play so they can make beautiful music for us! Congrats on the award I enjoyed reading your post.

    • Adelientan says:

      Great, nice to see you and I want to know you much better. I love reading together with my children. Looking at their eyes when they are enthusiastic, excited, scared while reading a story aloud makes me more grateful about their existence. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

    • Adelientan says:

      Thanks Steph. I haven’t done with your Liebster yet, but I have got couple of things in my mine. Lucky to have encouraging buddy like you.

  5. Renew Your Space says:

    I love that you learned to play the piano in your 30’s – I have played since the age of 3 and I know it gets harder to learn (or remember in my case) as you get older. Great list & congratulations on your award 😀 ~ Renee

  6. Zan says:

    Adelien, thank you for promoting my blog and yours, too! I am so glad to help and very glad we met! I will check out your nominees blogs, too!

    • admin says:

      Sure Zan. I feel so lucky having a blogging buddy like you who has already given me chance to step up on the next journey. Have a great day…

  7. Zan says:

    Thank you Adeline……….I cannot wait to read more of your posts:)
    I have checked out all the blogs you listed and liked their facebook pages…

  8. Leslie Denning says:

    Hi Adelien. I’ve been in one of these before, and they are fun. You get to know a lot about people. I’m glad I will get to know you through UBC. We have some things in common. I love ice cream (it’s one of the essential food groups, isn’t it?) and chocolate and I also love playing the piano. I started when I was 8 and just last month closed my music studio where I had taught for 13 years after leaving public education. It’s great to make new friends.

    All the best,
    Leslie
