I am so late with announcing this! Mostly because I was in shock and awe for quite awhile..basking in the warming glow that captured my mind when a fellow blogger included me on his fabulous list of nominees.

Thanks so much to C.C. Charron for making me feel extra special!  If you haven’t already done so, please hop over to his versatile e-gallery Off The Wall

7 Random Facts about me:

1. Favorite actor / actress – Nicholas Cage and Sandra Bullock  (I’ve seen almost all of their individual movies…yes, even ‘All About Steve’ and ‘Valley Girl’ 🙂 )

3. I think chocolate should be its own food group

4. I love any dish crafted together in any combination of warm bread, red sauce, and cheese

5. I love nature..from a close distance..as in, lovely photos or short walks with socks pulled up to my knees, and running frantically from villainous-looking bugs and squiggly things

7. I love my family very much..None of us live more than fifteen minutes apart

  1. =) Lenise, yehey!!! I am so happy for you = ) You deserve that really! And I thank you for the nomination = ) Keep writing lovely stories = ) they make our heart healthy = ) Im so so proud of you! = )

    1. Thank you 😀 ..This made my week so much better! I felt inspired to write again 🙂 I had to include you, Aina, your blog is definitely one of my favorites to visit for some inspiration and lots of smiles!!

    1. You’re too kind!! Thank you so very much 😀 ..Keep up the excellent writing and daily encouragement! 🙂 hugs back to you!!

  2. The first blogging award is always the best – enjoy it while
    you can 😉

    pretty soon you’ll have a million of these and not be sure
    of what do with them. One good thing to note – my one
    award post got more twitter and face book shares then
    any other post – so I’ll have to get around to posting the
    others – Perhaps it’s cause we’re popular 🙂

    1. Haha..I’m still swimming in the happiness!! and will try to keep the glow for as long as possible 🙂 ..I decided to shy away from being popular..FB and chirping were draining my productivity..I have a lukewarm presence on both of those now, but I wish everyone else much success on the networks 😀

      1. I don’t have a face book or twitter account.
        I just run around leaving comments and incourageing
        others like myself – but only between projects or
        when suffering from writer’s block.

  3. I am very touched to be included in your nominations Lenise! Thank you. I wish I could reciprocate, and your weblog would be at the top of my list, but… I don’t browse WordPress enough to even KNOW fifteen sites! My bad. I have to get out more often LOL.

    1. Haha..You are very welcome! No problem at all..I just wanted to pass on some happy news and some smiles..plus give recognition where it’s due..Keep writing and have an awesome weekend 🙂

    1. Hello, hello!! Lol…One award is never enough!! Plus, now I can finally dedicate a whole page to sharing my shiny trophies with the world..or at least my handful of visitors…Yayyyyy *(^-^)* ..Thanks so much for thinking of me for your fabulous list!

Share your thoughts with me :~)
