Awards Awards Awards…

I feel quite honored and flattered to have been nominated for so many wonderful awards (a few of them numerous times).  As I’ve shared my heart and my work here, I’ve encountered such talented, kind and brilliant people among my fellow-bloggers. It feels like virtual family to me, and I am very grateful for the warm supportive welcome I’ve received.

So first, as the awards rules dictate, I will begin by sharing 7 random things about me:

1. In the photo of me dancing above from September, I had fever of 102, and a wicked migraine – but it was a good ‘pain’ day and I had FUN!

2. My 2 loving daughters are my greatest inspiration.

3. I cook an awesome dijon/ginger/honey salmon fillet.

4. I am married to a phenomenal man, who kissed me for the first time when I was just 13!

5. I have always been able to stand on my head, and still can (though don’t test it often).

6. Rumi, my puppy is named after the Persian Mystical Love Poet.

7. When I was little, I  used to write stories and poems and pair them with cut-out images from magazines and/or photos…..they are still in my attic – and I suppose my blog is a continuation of that passion.

Next, I am thrilled to thank, and introduce you to  those who have nominated me for all of these fabulous blogging awards:
