Today feels like the perfect day to give thanks. I am thrilled and flattered to be nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by two wonderful bloggers, Julie at Being Julz and Amy at afternoon popcorn snack. Thank you so much for this honor. It means a lot to me coming from each of you.
I heartily accept these awards and, to comply with the award’s criteria, I will now:
* Thank the person(s) who nominated me and link back to them;
* Share 7 things about myself;
* Nominate 15 bloggers I admire; and
* Contact my nominees and let them know.
7 things about me:
- Context: I am a middle child.
- Touch: I have a spinning wheel in my living room. It does work, but I haven’t used it in a while. (Too busy blogging, I guess).
- Smell: Smoke from a peat fire is one of my favorite scents.
- Sound: I love the sound of “Zimbabwe.” I say it out loud regularly.
- Sight: Jerusalem crickets (a.k.a. potato bugs) gross me out to no end.
- Taste: I’m on a quest for the perfect hot chocolate.
- Heart: I love my husband dearly.
As it turned out, choosing nominees was much more challenging than I thought it would be. If I could choose every blog I look forward to reading, then my list would be quite long. But, I must say, this is a nice “problem” to have.
And now, my nominees for the Versatile Blogger Award (in alphabetical order by blog) are:
- “Alice” at Alice Through the Macro Lens: Wonderland…magnified.
- H.J. Ruiz at birds and everything else!
- Björn Olsson at bjornsphoto: I photograph stuff…
- Monique at Crumpets in Camelot: I’ll have my adventure with butter and jam, please.
- Domestic Diva, M.D.: My mother raised the perfect housewife…then I went to med school.
- Michelle Fuller at Full of Her Travels: Travel tidbits and other thoughts from Europe.
- João H Duarte at Hidden Glimpses: A photo blog.
- Jim Caffrey Images Photo Blog: Nature photography from the ground up.

Your blogging is appreciated!
I feel as though I’m getting to know some of these bloggers beyond their specific content; a sense of who they are seems to come through in each post. I hope you visit these blogs and enjoy them as much as I do.
Thanks again, Julie and Amy!
