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…
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)
