I have mixed feelings about blog awards in general. I think they are a great way to learn about new blogs, but they also feel a little like the chain letters that I used to get when I was a kid. I would love to get other bloggers opinions on this in the comments.
I have a bunch of reading to do, so in the meantime I will answer one question, give one fact, and point out a few of my favorite blogs. Hopefully I won’t get bad luck for life for not following the directions of each award perfectly.
Question: 1. Who is your favorite Disney Princess?
This is pretty complicated for me. My gut answer is Aurora from Sleeping Beauty. This was my favorite of them growing up. I think the animation is beautiful and I love that it is set to the Tchaikovsky music from the ballet. I also love the final scene where her dress keeps changing colors. However, I totally understand that as disney princesses go Aurora has a huge lack of agency within her story … so in terms of who I think are better more fully drawn characters/role models I think Belle or Ariel would be among my favorites as well.
Fact #1: I once sang “Natural Woman” by Carol King a capella in a middle school talent show. It is just as embarrassing as it sounds. I think I was wearing faux leather pants … which obviously doesn’t help.
