A Bit of Fun

in the generous life

WooHoo! I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Gaye of Calm Healthy Sexy for nominating me for the award and including me in the fun (see rule #1).

This award is really cool because when you get nominated, you are a winner and you get to:

1. Thank the person who gave you this award (see above).
2. Include a link to their blog (see above).
3. Select 15 blogs that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly (see below).
4. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site (see graphic on right and link above).
5. Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself (also below).

So here are 15 bloggers that I follow, some are new and some I regularly follow. 

Blogs that I just started following:
1. MarriageDance ~ celebrating our Creator’s plan for adventure, intimacy and joy in marriage
2. LaRae Quy ~ empower the leader in you
3. Dr. Ann’s Checklist ~ helping women build a balanced life
4. Grace Full Mama ~ learning to embrace life with grace and truth
5. Small Notebook ~ for a simple home
6. { double hockey sticks } ~ delighting in conflict done well 

For my garden fix:
7. Chiot’s Run ~ a chronicle of an organic garden 
8. A Garden for the House ~ home and garden inspiration from Kevin Lee Jacobs
    (he lives in the same zone that I do)

Real life friends that blog:
9. Simply Church ~ Felicity
10. stilljennifer ~ Jennifer
11. Encouraged by Him ~ Shawn
12. Big Island Faith ~ Jon & Steph

The blog that routinely wrecks me:
13. We are THAT family ~ you know the ones

The blog that challenges me to grow:
14. Assume Love ~ how to have a happier marriage without waiting for your spouse to change

My sweetie:
15. The Generous Husband ~ and, yes, he is

Here are 7 random facts about myself.

1. I am possibly the worst tap dancer in the history of dance.
2. I have been to Venice, Italy.
3. I like red licorice.
4. I don’t have a favorite color. I pretty much like them all.
5. I’m going to be a grandma again.  :)
6. I use Evernote and love it, love it, love it.
7. I love the Oregon coast.
8. I color outside of the lines. 

Thanks again, Gaye, for the award. Bless you.

Thank you, Lori. You have introduced me to some new blogs and to Evernote – I’m going to have to get that right away!

I am once again honored, Lori. I love that my blog offers you a welcome challenge. 7 random things about me:
1. I am going to be a grandma again, too!
2. I love country-western dancing and city life.
3. I’m a huge Barbara Sher fan.
4. Dark chocolate makes me very happy.
5. So does a hot shower or a swim in a lake or ocean.
6. I married someone so different from me that the 2 dozen friends we had in common had never mentioned us to each other. And it’s been the source of so much growth I am thrilled I did it, even when I’m spitting nails.
7. Catching someone in the moment they first consider leaving their spouse makes my day, especially if they are deeply in love again a few days later because I was there.
