I want to post this simply to thank Cassy for giving me the award. I thought it was super sweet of her to award it to me.
1. Thank the person who awarded you.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Award 15 bloggers.
~ 1st shared thing: Magnolias have the best smell in the world to me. Whenever I pass one in bloom, I have to stop a moment just to soak it in.
~ 2nd shared thing: I have a birthmark the size of a dime in the shape of the state of Texas.
~ 3rd shared thing: I am slightly obsessed with spy stories. I can't tell you how many hours I've spent watching shows like "Alias" non-stop in box-set form.
4th shared thing: I loooove laying in the sun on a warm day. I have absolutely no desire to sun tan or get skin cancer but it's so nice. Nothing else seems to exist in those moments. The wind, the warmth, maybe some wind chimes in the distance. It's beautiful.
5th shared thing: I love the ocean. I can't imagine living anywhere that wasn't near the ocean.
6th shared thing: I love kneading bread. I don't know how or where I learned what the texture of bread dough should feel like, but I've always known. It's better than play-doh and it smells awesome.
7th shared thing: I desperately want to be able to garden well but I am terrible at it on an almost ridiculous level. I have some vegetables in pots I'm trying to grow right now and it sends me in to emotional tail spins when they don't do well. I start making absurd analogies to my parenting/nurturing skills and if I can't grow plants, how in the world am I growing children?!?!?
And now my selectees for the Versatile Blogger Award! For lifestyle reads these are ones that make me smile and that I always look forward to:
I tried avoiding re-awarding if I noticed someone else had already awarded someone but gosh darn it! That's hard!! If anyone else wants to hand out the Versatile Blogger Award, let me know. I'm always on the look out for more interesting reads.
