A place to display the awards and gifts that other writers and bloggers share with me.

In case I forget to mention it to you personally - to all those who may give me a gift and/or award I LOVE YOU and you are among the rock-stars of awesome in my life!!



This was given to me by Nicole - the amazing writer and person behind The World of My ImaginationWith this award I must do two things: 1) Share 7 things about myself, and 2) Pass along the blogging-love to 15 other blogs and bloggers.  So - 

7 Things About Me
1) I love snow but I (extremely) dislike it when it's snowing.
2) Coffee is my divine beverage, the thing that gets me through the day, and my crutch for when I'm stuck while I'm writing.
3) I write something everyday... though sometimes it's just a grocery list.
4) I read every night before bed.  (Which may explain some of my crazier dreams.)
5) I have three kids that make every day worth living, every struggle worth the work, and every moment amazing.
6) I loath household chores - if I could afford to hire a cleaning service I would. In fact as soon as I can justify paying someone else to clean my house, without breaking the bank, I will hire a cleaning service.
7) I love to travel and see new places, but since I can't afford to be a globetrotter I have to settle for visiting all the worlds that I create in my imagination, and the real places that I incorporate into my work.

These are blogs and bloggers that you really should check out because I think they're awesome!

  4. Thank you so much, Lacey! I am so excited to receive my first ever blog award - from both you and Nicole! It made me a happy camper to know someone is enjoying what I write. I'll be posting the award on Friday night. Thanks again :D

  5. Hi Lacey, I've been off work sick for over a week and this really has made my day! I didn't know about blog awards, so this is very exciting for me. I will follow your instructions to the letter :) Congratulations to the other winners too, it nice to know our posts are not just drifting off into cyberspace!
    Thanks again.

  7. Thank you Lacey :-) I've blogged for years but when I realized how much I enjoyed interacting with other bloggers/writers, posting into the void was not as fun. Working on my pay it forward blogs. Peace, and happy NaNo!

  8. Lacey ~ thanks again for the recognition, you rock! I finally chose my 15 and wrote about it today:
    I am truly honored

  9. You're welcome - all of you! @Lara, @Maxine, @Eric, @Gina and @Kelly - it's so interesting to jump over to your blogs and see what you've been writing about, thinking about and doing with your time, and I was honestly just so happy to be able to pay forward the wonderful awards that other's had shared with me! I'd like to think that we all totally deserve them!
