These Are A Few of My Favourite Things…

Well, this week marks a very important event… No, I don’t mean the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, though that was pretty epic. xD Nor do I mean the fact that I’ve pretty much officially completed my Junior year of high school.

No, I mean the 1 year anniversary of The Way of Delight!! I can hardly believe that I’ve been blogging for one year now – seriously crazy! :O Anyways, in honor of this milestone, I’ve decided to deviate from my normal writing/book themed posts, and do somethingΒ  little different. I’ve realized that though I’ve posted on here weekly for a year now, I haven’t shared a lot about me. So I thought it would be fun to answer some questions so that you guys can get to know me a bit better! πŸ™‚ So here are answers to 12 ‘favourite’ questions in honour of the 12 months I’ve been blogging. I hope you enjoy!

Oh yes, that’s me. I figured that after a year of blogging it was about time to show my face on my own blog. πŸ˜€

Favourite Colour? – Blue. I love to wear it (as you can see from the above pic), I love owning things that are that colour – I just love that colour. πŸ˜€

Favourite Animal? – It’s been a horse for as long as I can remember. Something about their strength and gracefulness is just beautiful!

Favourite Season? – Oh summer, by far. I love the sun and the warmth and bare feet and the free time and blue skies and bbqs. The only thing I dislike about summer is that it always seems too short. xD

Favourite Book? – I’m sure you know by now what’s coming. xD Of course I must put my beloved Anne of Green Gables at the top of my (very long!) list of much-loved books. Anne’s character is one that has wormed her way into my heart over the years, and now firmly lodges in the ‘relatable’ and ‘inspirational’ and ‘overall delightful’ categories in my bookish heart. πŸ˜€

Favourite Song: I love a lot of songs from all different genres so it’s pretty hard to pick! However one of my core favourites for quite a while now has been This is Amazing Grace by Phil Wickham.

Favourite Dessert: I have a major sweet tooth, so give me a dessert and I will probably like it. πŸ˜€ Buuuuut, if I had to pick just one I would have to go with the classic chocolate chip cookie. I never get tired of them – in the dough form or in the cookie form!

Favourite Item of Clothing: As we are moving into summer, I’m very taken with my smallish collection of maxi-dresses (the majority of which are blue, of course :D). They’re comfy, cool and stylish – a great combination!

Favourite School Subject:Β It probably will come as no surprise to you that the award for my favourite school subject is tied between History and English. After all, I’m a historical-fiction lover. πŸ˜€

Favourite Type of Food: It’s a hard toss up between Italian and Mexican, but in the end I have to go for Italian. If you’ve ever eaten authentic Italian food in Italy, you know that it’s pretty much to die for…

Favourite Time of Day:Β I must say probably late evening. I love sitting in a silent house once everyone is asleep and being able to write or read or just relax. I live in a house with 8 other people, so silent hours are literally golden! πŸ˜€

Favourite Holiday Destination:Β The beach. Hands down. I love the wildness of the ocean, and how it’s never in the same mood twice. I love the feeling of sand beneath my feet and the sun on my head (if it decides to make an appearance that is, which can be debatable in England :D).

Favourite Author:Β Again, you know what’s coming. πŸ˜€ Lucy Maud Montgomery will always hold the place of favourite author in my heart – I’ve read pretty much everything she has written and I’ve loved it all. Her stories with their memorable characters and gorgeous descriptions always delight me!

That’s all for today, folks. Thank you all for sticking by me on my first year of blogging – your comments and follows have meant so much to me! Here’s to many more years like this past one on The Way of Delight!

  1. So many similarities, it’s crazy. Not only with AoGG, but everything. πŸ˜‚ (I’m wearing a maxi dress right now) I love blue, and I love that song. Kindred Spirits for sure. Congrats on 1 year Hannah!! πŸŽ‰

  2. Ooh congratulations!!! I have to say I’ve enjoyed every blog post you’ve published since day one! Do you know when I first saw the title I immediately thought of that song in the Sound of Music (which is one of my most favourite movies ever), I don’t suppose you thought of that too? πŸ™‚ And YES the wedding was amazing we watched the whole thing from start to finish live when I probably should have been revising πŸ˜‚ and congratulations for completing your junior year in high school! πŸ™‚ My favourite colour is blue as well! I can totally emphasise with your favourite time of the day, despite having less than 8 people in our family, we always have guests and neighbours popping in, aaaand there is definitely way too much noise as always πŸ˜‚

  3. Congratulations, Hannah! You have been so faithful in your posts. I have loved everything you wrote. This post about you, the author, was especially meaningful – since you are my niece. πŸ˜€ I tried to guess your answers and got 6 right! β€œThis is Amazing Grace” is definitely a favorite of mine. Like that picture of you.
