This morning, I woke up to find an alert on my phone, letting me know that I had a comment awaiting moderation. I always love that; it brightens my day every time I get a notification about someone following, liking or especially commenting on my writing. This comment, however was special. FibroFaery had written to let me know that she’d nominated me for an award. I’m speechless. I’m trying to come up with words to express how touched I am to have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thank you FibroFaery for the nomination! If you haven’t checked out her blog yet, I highly recommend doing so!

I’ve only been blogging for a month now, and quite honestly, to even have one or two readers who are not people I know in the flesh is amazing. To have 115 fabulous followers and to be nominated for an award is simply astounding, again, thank you!

As a nominee, I have to nominate 15 other blogs for the award. I don’t have the full 15 yet, as I’m fairly new to the community, but I will update the list as I come across new ones!¬†¬†Without further ado, here they are!

Like I said, I know this list isn’t complete, but I haven’t had a chance to really start exploring other blogs just yet.

Finally, here’s my list of 7 things about me. Hopefully, this will help you get to know me a bit better, beyond the fibro!


7 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

  1. I love giraffes. Not just like, but seriously, LOVE giraffes. They are by far my absolute favorite animal. One of my favorite things in the world to do is to go to a zoo that allows you to feed them.
    giraffe love
  2. My favorite color is red.
  3. I am an arts and crafts junkie. Depending on how I’m feeling any given day, I crochet, draw, paint, dabble in jewelry making, scrapbook… The list goes on and on.
  4. Even though I rarely feel up to it anymore, I love working in my flower beds. At one point, I was working on “growing a rainbow” using different shades of day lilies.lily
  5. I love to cook!
  6. All of my pets (from about the age of 15 and up, at least) have had human names. Andrew, Sammy, Riley, Octavius… They seem to get grander the older I get.
  7. I love my life. I love that I have finally found my voice and the knowledge that it’s being heard makes it all the more awesome. I love that I actually have some ability to help others, even in my “disabled” state. I’ve had some rough times, and I’m sure there are more to come, but that just makes the joy in my life all the sweeter.
