I am thrilled to be the recipient of 2 blog awards! I am new to this blog scene so it fills me with a delightful, fluttery feeling in my heart to be nominated!

From the amazing blogger Megan at I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award.


From the fantastic blogger Gwen, the 4 AM Writer at I have been nominated for the Liebster Award for up and coming bloggers.


I have been instructed to share some interesting things about myself:

I took one flying lesson in a Cessna.

I spend more time with animals than people.

I quit smoking about 3 years ago.

I love art and taking photographs. Sometimes I paint but I can only paint abstract things and not anything that is supposed to look like something.

One of my most favorite books: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

Currently reading: Swamplandia by Karen Russell

Currently listening to: Arcade Fire Funeral

Favorite Color: Purple – I can be seen nerding out in too much purple when walking the dogs

Guilty pleasures: George Takei feed on Facebook, Little House on the Prairie


For The Versatile Blogger Award:

Image Whose poems and paintings are amazing All submissions are from photographers living with or affected by mental illness and its all beautiful and thought provoking Francis Guenette’s site is full of fabulous thoughts on writing, her life, and glorious photographs – many from her lovely home in British Columbia. Ned makes me laugh and that makes me happy. Bruce not only takes stellar photographs but takes you on a thoughtful journey of places and ideas. 

I nominate this fine blog for the Liebster Award. 

Image Jay is a wordsmith extraordinaire. He’s got that razor sharp wit I love!


I am nominating this blog for being inspiring:

Image Lucas suffered a spinal injury in December 2011. On his blog he shares his road to recovery and takes the time to lift up everyone who stops by.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you are inspired to check out these great blogs.
