I’m honored to have been awarded the “Awesome Blog Content” award by Michael at Harcourt51. Michael has a fantastic blog (actually multiple blogs) featuring lovely poems, beautiful photography, and insightful blog posts. You can find links to each of his blogs on Harcourt51. Thank you, Michael, for thinking of me for this award. It means so much! Michael nominated me for this award a number of weeks ago and I’ve been meaning to write this post but time slipped by without me even realizing it.
There are a few rules that go along with accepting this award. They are as follows:
1. Display the “ABC” award on your blog.
2. Announce your win with a post and thank the blogger who awarded you.
3. Present 8 deserving Bloggers with the Award.
4. Link your awardees with the post and let them know of their award.
5. Write a word or phrase about yourself for each letter of the alphabet.
I really struggled with #5…that’s one of the reasons it took me so long to write this post! But here it is…each letter of the alphabet with a word/phrase about me:
A. Autumn- my favorite season
B. Billy Joel- my favorite musician and the famous person I would most like to meet.
C. Coffee- it makes everything better, especially the morning.
D. Dessert- best part of any meal
E. Eve- My two favorite days of the year are actually “Eves” – Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve
F. Family- what matters most to me
G. Germany- I lived there for 3 fabulous years and would do it again in a heartbeat.
H. Horseback riding- Someday I am going to learn how to do this!
I. Introvert- I took me some time to figure this out, but I am definitely an Introvert.
J. Jeans- What you’ll find me wearing 95% of the time.
K. Kindle- I really want to like reading books on a Kindle, but I just don’t.
L. Late- Being late is one of my biggest pet peeves.
M. Musician- my first career
N. Nine- the number of times Mark and I have moved in the fifteen years we’ve been married.
O. Only Child- I am an only child but always wished for siblings.
P. Psychology- After deciding that music wasn’t for me, I went back to school and earned a Psychology degree.
Q. Quotes- I am definitely a quote collector. I have them on my walls, written down in notebooks, and I use them all over my blog.
R. Reading- one of my favorite pastimes.
S. Skiing- Tried it twice, hated it both times, won’t do it again.
T. Travel- love it but having 3 kids makes it a lot harder to do.
U. Uggs- I may be the only girl alive who still doesn’t own a pair of Uggs.
V. Victorian- of all the houses we’ve lived in, our Victorian house was definitely my favorite.
W. Winter- my least favorite season
X. Xanadu (by Olivia Newton-John) – First song I ever memorized the words to, allowing me to sing it in my room all day and night (sorry Mom and Dad!)
Y. Yellow- Wish I could wear this color but it makes me look sick.
Z. ZZZ’s- I never seem to get enough of them!
And now for my eight nominations, in no particular order:
2. Simply Kierste
3. Simply Organized
4. A Sorta Fairtale
6. Mom in the Muddle
7. Act in Kindness
8. 30 Handmade Days
Thanks again to Michael for the award! And thanks to everyone who reads my blog. I appreciate all of you so very much!
