One Lovely Blog Award
The rules for accepting the award are:
1. Thank and link back to the person who nominated you.
Thanks to Liz, an SLP at Say What? for the nomination.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
- I am super competitive, some might say to a fault. I don’t even let my students win.
- I love animals and have two pets: a rotty mix named Skyla and a tuxedo cat named Dixie.
- I would like to write a book someday–getting started is the hardest part!
- I am teaching myself to play guitar and occasionally cover songs for my students.
- I love the Chicago Blackhawks but have never been to a game!
- Staying active and writing keep me grounded.
- I love to cook but I can’t bake without starting a fire.
3. Nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on their blogs (usually on their about page or contact directly if necessary) to let them know.
I haven’t been in the blogging ‘scene’ (is that cool to say?) long enough to have 15 blogs to share, but I will share a few favorites and pass more nominations along as I expand my reading list! Most of these blogs are out of my league, but they are my favorites to follow!
