The Addictive Blog Award

Thank you to Peggy Isaacs for nominating me for the Addictive Blog award.  I’m so glad someone else enjoys my little furballs as much as I do!

Award Rules:

  1. Thank the person awarding you.
  2. Share a little about why you blog and how the journey started.
  3. Paste the blog award on your page.
  4. Nominate 10 other bloggers you feel deserve the award.

Why I blog:

I started this blog as a way to capture sweet memories and experiences in my life and share them with my family and friends.  I was inspired by the Pioneer Woman, who I first discovered on the Food Network and whose blog I now read religiously.  Even though I’m not a huge fan of writing, somehow writing posts (to go along with the absurd amount of pictures I now take) has turned into a sort of ritual of reflection through storytelling.  It makes me feel more connected and appreciative.

Somewhat coincidentally, I started this blog just before I moved to a new place on my own and it has been a great way for my family and friends to keep tabs on me and see what I’m up to in my new hometown of Nashville.

Unexpectedly, I have met some wonderful bloggers through this journey, who make my day when they “like” my post or leave a kind comment.

I don’t know where I’d be without this blog.

7 Things about Me:

  1. My ideal time to wake up is 7:00 AM.  Any earlier and I feel robbed.  Any later and I feel that I have wasted part of the day.
  2. I love playing Scrabble.  Especially with my family.
  3. I don’t really care much about ice cream.  Unless it’s homemade peach ice cream, in which case I can’t get enough of it.  For the most part, I would take a big piece of chocolate cake over ice cream any day.
  4. I could look at floor plans all day long.  I just love figuring out space.
  5. I love to try new recipes when I can take my time.
  6. I make a lot of To-Do lists.
