{ my first award }

I just want to take a moment to say a huge THANK YOU

for giving me this award.

This is my first official award.

I am flattered that she thinks I am deserving.

Now, apparently the rules are that I have to share 7 things about myself.

1. I am a 36 year old gemini, so I have a birthday on the horizon

2. I am a mother to 3 amazing children ages 16, 10 and 8

3. We have 3 dogs, 3 cats, 1 fish, 2 hermit crabs, and a new cockatiel

4. I love birds, watching them relaxes me & makes me feel close to God

5. I have a floating rib { weird huh }

6. I love horses, and vow that someday I will own one

7. I love to travel { Italy is my favorite so far } I've traveled to...
Rome, Florence, London, Quebec, Acapulco, Cancun, Puerto Rico,
Bahamas, Bermuda and I hope one day to go to Paris.

Now, I have to give this award to 15 bloggers

who I think are super special

so here they are.

1. LeAnn at Vintage Sassy

2. Tara at BlondienSC

3. Tina at Rubies Place

4. Maria at Dreamy Whites

5. Kacey at A Life of Blue

6. Victoria at Whimsy by Victoria

7. Donna at A Perfect Gray

9. Mary Lou at M is for Maga

11. Anne at Decor Naturel

14. Chania at Razmataz Vintage
