One Lovely Blog Award

Thank you so much to Rev. B. Keith Haney for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! And for your lovely blog that continually lifts my spirit. The Light Breaks Through is right! I have never been nominated for an award before- so as I said– I am both humbled and excited, to say the least! Coming up with seven things to say about myself is a challenge. Since my blog contains the story of my life, it’s very hard to think of something that hasn’t been said already! I will certainly do my best.

The Rules

Thank the person that nominated you and leave a link to their blog Post about the award Share 7 facts about yourself Nominate at most 15 people Tell your nominees the good news!

7 Facts About Me:

  1. I was the pitcher for a girls fast pitch softball team for about seven years, and was voted All-Star player for five years in row- pitching several no-hitter games.
  2. I’m a bit of a tomboy (do they still use that word?). The “jeans only, no dresses allowed” rule holds true in my world. Ok, occasionally I dress up.
  3. I can eat pasta until it’s coming out of my ears. I cook a pretty mean meat sauce and a pasta with chicken, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes and capers- covered in a lemon butter/parmesan cheese & garlic sauce. (And I’ve just made myself hungry!)
  4. I do NOT like to bake (pastries, etc.). Mainly because the flour usually ends up everywhere but in the bowl.
  5. I’ve mentioned this on comments, but I don’t think I’ve said it in my blog: I’ve always been afraid to fly. I hope to conquer that soon because I want to see the world! I flew only once, when I was about 10, in my uncle’s private plane. We flew over my house! BUT, I was young and that was before I realized what flying was. I’ve never been on a commercial airplane, but I LOVE airports. Seeing all of those people boarding and exiting planes reassures me that I can do this!
  6. I taught myself how to use a computer back in the days of DOS, and dabbled in HTML before I got my hands on website templates.
  7. I obtained my California Real Estate Salesperson license in 2007, and actually found out yesterday that it expired this month! I still have awhile to renew it- but I am hemming and hawing over it, as I’m not sure if I’ll ever use it again. BUT– time will tell. I need to pray on this one (mainly because of the fees to renew it).

I am honored and extremely grateful. Thank you again!

Naming others is hard because everyone I follow is lovely. And I follow A LOT of blogs! My nominees are ten blogs that have visually (or verbally) inspired me, taught me things, and/or encouraged me over the quarter of a year that I’ve been blogging.

Thank you for sharing beauty- whether it be through your photos or your words, or BOTH- with the world! –

With love,
