Yesterday I was notified that I had been nominated not once, but twice for the One Lovely Blog Award. I am incredibly flattered that these two extraordinary bloggers Laura @Mommy Run Fast and Kierston @CandyFit thought my site worthy of this badge. Thank you very much ladies, I am truly honored.
The rules are simple…
1. Thank the person who awarded the award (Thank you Kierston and Laura) and link back to their blogs: Click HERE and HERE to check out their amazing sites.
2. Tell Seven random things about yourself that no one knows.
3. Pass on the award to (15) blogs you follow and like/admire/wish they were yours.
So here we go, seven things:
1. I love to watch birds/wildlife… I never get tired of seeing a herd of deer, nesting birds or a box turtle warming himself on the blacktop. This sounds really kooky, but they have been little messengers in my life.. (I might see a turtle when I need slow down in my life, or a nesting bird when I need to be more nurturing to my children) One of the many reasons I run is to go outside, nature has always held the answers to my life questions.
2. I love to cook. When my husband was diagnosed with Celiac disease, he thought he could no longer enjoy good tasting food. I have made it my personal mission to create gluten free dishes that he loves. The bigger the challenge the more I am on board!
3. I have a terribly raunchy sense of humor.
4. I come across as very emotional, happy and nice.. yes, this is a major part of who I am but I have a stone cold strength that only a few have seen. I pull that out when I need to, not too often, but it’s there.
5. I have a deep empathy for people, almost as if I were experiencing it myself… not sure where this gift came from, but I’m glad I have it, I can relate to most people (unless they are cut off emotionally), because I can feel what they feel.
6. If something is important to me I don’t say “I wish I had more time” I make time, even if it means waking up at 2am. I work my a$$ off, I know no other way. I am always evaluating my priorities to make sure I am working toward the right things.
7. When I was in my early 20’s my father very graciously sent my on a month long trip through Europe. At the end of 30 days I was not ready to come home (think a guy was involved) so I missed my flight back home and carried on exploring Europe. When I was ready to come home and out of money, I called my Dad and he very understandably told me to find my own way home. I was a hand full, I might still be.
Blogs that I would like to pass this award on to and you should take a look at because they truly are lovely blogs are: (in no particular order)
