Honoured to be nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award

Just took a moment to check my inbox for the night only to find a message saying that the lovely and talented Ash N. Finn ~ has nominated me for the “One Lovely Blog Award”!

The wonderful and talented Ash N. Finn who calls Dublin, Ireland home, is a wonderfully gifted writer and such an authentic soul. I am truly at a loss for words (which, trust me doesn’t happen often) and honoured that she has nominated me for this award. 🙂

The rules of acceptance for this award nomination are as follows:

  • Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post
  • Share 7 things about yourself
  • Nominate 15 or so bloggers you admire
  • Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know

The 7 things about myself which I would like to share with you here are:

  1. I am happily married to my best friend!
  2. I have an extremely goofy sense of humour and it often comes out at the oddest times.
  3. I love learning new things and probably know more useless facts than anyone ever should.
  4. I love to collect items such as cameras, typewriters, and fountain pens. I love anything vintage, especially useful everyday items; I like to think of the wonderful words and images that were captured by their previous owners.
  5. I am totally enthralled by the creative process and in addition to writing I am also an artist and amateur photographer.
  6. I have a bad coffee and chai tea addiction, and I am not apologizing for it! 😉
  7. I love music and have very eclectic tastes, I listen to everything from Jazz to Punk. I am also my husband’s bass roadie and #1 fan.

The 15 fabulous bloggers I choose to nominate are all extremely talented and giving writers:

  1. Constance Wallace~
  2. Sylvia McGrath~
  3. Lora Fisher ~
  4. Amber Meadows ~
  5. Melissa Foster ~
  6. Rich Weatherly ~

  11. Damyanti ~
  12. Allan Douglas ~

  14. Ciara Ballintyne ~
  15. Carlyle Labuschagne ~
There are so many more that should be on this list, so please don’t feel bad if you’re not included! You’re all my favourites! 🙂

That’s pretty much it! I am honoured and would like to thank Ash for nominating me! Wishing everyone a wonderful day! 🙂
