Versatile blogger award


I liked to thank Jane Gealy at The world according to Dom for nominating me for the versatile blogger award . That is so sweet…thanks so much and thanks for checking out my site, so happy you like it.


Rules to versatile blogger award:


Write 7 interesting facts about yourself.


Nominate 15 amazing bloggers for the award.


So here are 7 interesting facts about me


  1. I’m a big homebody. I do love adventures, but my favorite place has always been at home. I love being surrounded by family, staring at my giant acrylic fish tank, sewing something, watching old movies or reading a good book.
  2. I only wear one piece of jewelry, it’s a little peace sign carved from an olive tree in Jerusalem. It is tied to a string, so it isn’t fancy at all but says a lot about who I am. It is something all four of us in our family wear. I have other jewelry and it is put away because I am always covered in paint from redoing furniture and art pieces.
  3. I once walked the entire racetrack in Monaco. It was something my husband always wanted to do since he was a little boy. He is a big formula 1 fanatic and used to photograph a lot of the races. After walking the track, we were hungry but didn’t have a lot of cash on us so we ended up splitting a $7 hotdog.
  4. I tried rose petal gelato in Florence Italy and prickly pear ice cream in Arizona but my favorite is and always will be Vanilla. What can I say; I’m very loyal to the things I love.
  5. I would love to have a pet hedgehog. They look so adorable. For now I will stick with making little versions of them.
  6. In my teens I met my husband based off of a lie. The girl I was working with told me the boy next door (my husband to be) said he really liked me (the lie) and said I should go speak to him, so I did. My husband still talks about that and how funny it was when I kept stopping by to talk to him and I am the shy one. It took two weeks before he actually asked me out. He thought it was a prank wondering why what he calls the girl of his dreams next-door working would bother to speak to him. Now a couple decades later and two grown kids, we are still together and still talk a lot to each other.
  7. I was raised around a motorcycle gang when I was a little girl (mother’s side) and Pentecostals from my father’s side. It made for a very interesting upbringing. There was never a boring moment and it taught me how to be spiritual and cautious all at the same time. Oh, the stories I could tell. Now that I am all grown up I have realized I am more like my father’s side of the family then my mothers.



I like to nominate these bloggers for keeping my family and I entertained, for passing on knowledge, sharing adventures and pieces of themselves. There are so many great bloggers out there it is hard to pick, anyway be sure to check back in a couple of days for my favorite posts of the month post.

I would also like to let everyone know about a birthday blog party at Nikki’s

I discovered Nikki’s site through Jane Gealy’s site, so thank you once again Jane and Nikki thank you for spreading kindness out there in the world. I have a post coming up in a few days where I address this issue. It is so important to counteract hate with kindness. The world needs this right now. Happy blogging everyone.

    1. Thank you, and thank you for all your great posts as well. I went back and read some I haven’t had time to and that turtle post was a little scary. Wow, didn’t know turtles liked toes. Also I am following someone from your site Jessica@wanderingnirvana, so thanks for that too. Her baby is so adorable, he could be a baby model. Blogging is a nice distraction from everyday life situations, so glad I decided to give it a go.

    7 Facts about myself

    1. I like to read old and forgotten books since I believe that there are many hidden gems buried in them which were missed by many people before.

    2. I already know multi-variable calculus and linear algebra (the one taught in universities) when I was 10, so math classes were always boring.

    3. I loved math but since it was taught monotonously most of the time, I enjoyed history and literature the most during my early school days.

    4. I had a dog named Doug.

    5. I learned to type fast (95 to 105 wpm now) by playing Typer Shark.

    6. I used to always watch NBA before.

    7. I like to play scrable but I wander why I can’t win.

    1. Thank you and WOW your story is amazing. My son loves math and hates classes that don’t challenge him. My daughter struggles now and then with math and is always turning to online tutors to help her out in her college courses. We are a big collector of old books as well. My whole family reads your site, thanks so much for doing that.

  3. Congratulations on your award! It is well deserved. Too funny about you and hubby. But it just goes to show it was meant to be :):) I love your piece of jewelry. If you have to pick one piece that is the perfect piece :):) I am with you on vanilla, it is my favourite too. I try others but it is the one I always go back to :):) Thank you for the nomination. I am very humbled you would think of me. I will get it done and have it up in a few days, Saturday at the latest :):) God Bless you 🙂

    2. Thank you, I always love reading your comments. So glad I went over to speak to that boy who worked in the shoe store, we have had some amazing adventures together. I always wondered why my coworker snickered and laughed when I came back from talking to my future husband to be…so funny that she lied. I almost lost my necklace the other day in my garden. I went out the next morning and it was on a table my husband and son made for me. I guess it slipped off, so happy I found it. God bless you too.

      1. I love leaving the comments :):) The joke might have been on you in the beginning but in the end the joke was on your co-worker hehehe. Oh wow, such a blessing you found it :):) I lost my wedding ring in the ocean a few years back. I was so upset. I knew better than to go into the water with jewelry on. A bunch of tourist came over, seeing I was distraught, and tried to help me. I didn’t want to be mean but all I could think is y’all are miring up the water, tossing the sand, I didn’t have hopes of finding it but now for sure it is gone forever with them stirring everything up. I just stopped, started praying in my head, and talking to these folks who were just trying to help. I walked back out into the chest deep water, they followed. We talked for what seemed like forever. In the back of my mind, my ring is gone. How will I tell hubby. He was deployed at the time. I said my goodbyes to them, as I walked out of the water, I saw a shine, looked down and it was my ring :):):) The tide had gone out enough to where it was in just an inch of water. I dropped to my knees and started thanking God just as loud as I could. :):) That was a true miracle because living on the water all my life, I know before something reaches the bottom it can float a few inches to feet, depending on the current that day. I also know that just the in and out of the waves, buries things in seconds or minutes, again depending on the current. Then to add human movement. So, yes that was a miracle. :):)

      2. Goosebumps when I read this, I too believe even the tiniest of prayers get answered. I wish everyone could see those signs. Thank you so much for sharing this little story and glad you found that ring.

      3. me too, those signs are every where, every day. If we are willing to see them, like your necklace, my ring, how you met your husband. All signs for us to see. I apologize for leaving you a mile long comment AGAIN:):)

      4. Long comments are my favorites. Anyway I have been known to post a few now and then. I forgot to mention that I also lost my wedding ring on a plane trip to Italy and the whole plane was searching for it. They found it and everyone clapped. I have it put up because I have stain and paint on my hands sometimes. I try to remember to wear gloves but I forget. My wedding ring is safe now.
