Stylish Blog Award

I am thankful for my good blog friend Tracy from "A Slice of Smith Life" for giving me a blog award:) and I get to pass on this award to 15 other bloggers which I am also thankful for:) If you haven't seen Tracy's blog please stop by she is a great source of support for other bloggers and a wonderful person:)

Rules for accepting this award are:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the award
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass this on to 15 other great bloggers you recently discovered.
  4. Contact the selected bloggers and tell them about their awards.
7 Things about myself:

1. I love to travel, learn about other cultures, traditions and hear stories from other countries. With my husband's job we as a family are very fortunate to be able to travel regularly. My goal is to visit every inhabitant continent. I need to get to Australia and South America to make this goal.

2. My favorite country is Germany. Every time we have visited it has been a lovely adventure and the people and places we have seen are remarkable.

3. I love to read and hoard books. I would rather buy a book then just about anything else. My husband is starting to complain:) My current favorite type of book to read is historical fiction. I just finished reading a series of books on King Alfred the Great and Genghis Khan. They were terrific.

4. My children are my greatest joy. I wish I had more patience with them.

5. I am computer challenged, just ask my husband and my friends:)

6. I love to make this with my hands but never seem to have the time. Right now I have taken up knitting again but can only knit a scarf or a hat. Need to work on learning to knit gloves.

7. I graduated from college with a BS degree in Occupational Therapy and worked for ten years before quitting to stay home with my kids. While I miss helping people (I worked with head injuries and neuro patients) I don't miss my career. Time to focus on my family right now.

I am passing the award on to and in no particular order to these fellow bloggers:

1. home school tweet

2. the Davis Daily Dose

3. Welcome to my kitchen

  19. Thank you for the award you passed on to me. I have not been able to post it yet as choosing the fifteen to pass it on to is a daunting thing, and I have been ill, but I sat down to catch up on blogging (and rest) today after a busy weekend and hopefully will get it up this week or weekend. I hope you are having a blessed Christmas in England. How much fun would that be! sigh. Thanks again.
