The Versatile Blogger Award: I’ve been nominated!

The Versatile Blogger AwardHow about that – I’ve been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award! Wasn’t familiar with this little online pat on the back, but I’ll take it! With this lovely nomination comes some good pay-it-forward juju, so here it is…the Rules of the Versatile Blogger Award:

Ruled #1: Provide the link and name of the blogger who nominated you – and thank them: I have been nominated by jabrush (check her blog out here: jabrushblog), who I had the pleasure of meeting through a wordpress daily prompt challenge we both participated in. She covers a lot of cool territory from healthy habits (and a shared passion for yoga) to reflections on faith to re-purposed recipes and more. Thank you jabrush!

Rule #2: Share 7 facts about yourself:

  1. I have a lot of energy – my grandfather once put a splash of bourbon in my bottle to settle me down.
  2. I want to age like a French woman – I have a vivid memory observing a 60-something Parisian beauty stride gracefully across a wet, cobblestone paved street in the Marais District in 4″ red patent leather stilettos with the confidence of a tightrope walker.
  3. My last meal will be a slightly charred, butter-coated Dubliner cheddar cheese sandwich. Make that two sandwiches.
  4. Big, fat, bright peonies in full bloom make my heart sing.
  5. I write and practice yoga daily. Sometimes at the same time.
  6. Rescue dogs have taught me more about patience, unconditional love and presence than just about anyone or anything else.
  7. I’m still trying to love my soft curvy areas where muscles don’t pop. One day I will. It’s a process…

Rule #3: Nominate any number of fellow bloggers, adding a link to their blog:

Oneika’s Yoga Life – this woman truly lives her yoga. Read and get inspired.

Mark Rodgers Blog – “Irish opinion matters”. Get his take on all things Ireland.

Bali Info Blog – gorgeous photos, posts, and insight into life on Bali.

Sass & Balderdash– flat out hilarious. And honest.

SethSnap – capturing life through a lens so so beautifully. Check it out.

Rule #4: Share these rules with them.

Rule #5: Go and make yourself some coffee and/or write a nice letter to someone: off to Starbucks (yes I do love all the independents around my hood, but nothing compares to a Grande Pike Roast, free wifi, and a house full of fellow key tappers with ear buds writing for school, pleasure, work, or what have you) right now.
