One Lovely Blog Award

One of the things that has continued to amaze me is the incredible people that I have had the opportunity to get to know through blogging and how supportive the blogging community truly is. I had heard "things" about the blogging community and how people come together and support each other but I didn't believe it. Well, the past six months or so has proved me wrong.

Last week, I found out that Lisa at Run Wiki passed on to me the One Lovely Blog award. This also reminded me that Michelle at Rage Your Way Thin passed on the Liebster Award to me way back in April! I can't believe that it's taken me so long to pay it forward! I'm honored. I hope it's OK with you but I'm cheating a little and combining the two awards. Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who awarded the award and link back to their blogs: Thank you Lisa and Michelle!

2. Tell 5-7 random things about yourself that no one knows.

3. Pass on the award to up to 15 blogs you follow and like/admire/wish they were yours (One Lovely Blog Award) or 5 up-and-coming blogs with less than 200 followers to award the Liebster to.

4. Post the award on your blog. List the bloggers you are giving the award to with links to their sites. Leave comments on their blog/tweet so they know about the award.

So, in addition to my 11 random things and my 10 summer memories, here are 5 more random things about me. Geez, I think that you guys know just about everything at this point!

  • I speak and understand enough Chinese, Spanish, Italian and Polish to get by in a pinch when traveling in those countries.
  • Despite having braces twice (Yes, twice) I still have crooked teeth. Don't get my Mom started on that one.
  • I had a perm when I was about 8 years old. I looked like an old Chinese lady.
  • I'm quite sentimental and, as a result, tend to be a pack rat. I have a hard time parting with clothes, books, knick knacks, etc. I have a box of old letters and journals that really just should be thrown away or burned.
  • As we were leaving for our honeymoon, my husband got a call informing us that the bed & breakfast we planned on staying in had burned down. Luckily, at least we weren't planning on staying there until about 3-4 days into our trip. 

I'd like to pass the award on to these lovely blogs but there are so many blogs out there that I really enjoy reading. Go check them out! I promise you won't be disappointed.

Crazy story about the B&B!! I am beyond impressed with your languages... that's awesome. And I can be pretty sentimental, too... but after holding on to something for a year or two, then I'm usually able to part with it.

You got me choked up this morning - for real! Especially since I am such a huge admirer of your blog. Thank you and I look forward to passing the award on to some of my faves.

Oh, odd and random fact - my honeymoon was canceled because the cruise ship we were supposed to sail on had a fire on it about 4 days before we got married. On a whim, I asked my travel agent to get us to Paris instead. We had a great time.

Thanks again for the wonderful shout out. xo

aww!! Thank you for including me!! I can't believe it's only been 6 months since you started blogging! I love reading and connecting and having such a similar mindset on so much! LOVE the perm tidbit...I had one in 6th grade that made ME look like a 65 year old granny ;-) NOT cool. And uh, wow, about the honeymoon!! Glad it turned out okay, I am assuming?!

I'm so excited that you passed the award on to me! Thank you so much for thinking of me! I really have gotten to know you recently and it only makes me want to know you more. I am a sap too but I can't stand heart and my sanity do not get along well on saving things!
Thanks again! I'll do this when I get back from vacation in a week! yippee! an award!

I have to laugh about the perm. I had to have one when I was younger too since the curl was all the rage. I have to tell you that my hair is flat. Completely flat. So my hair turned into some concoction of wave and frizz and flatness. I looked like a hot mess.
I blame the entire cast of Save By The Bell

I believe this calls for a picture of said perm. :)
