Happy Holidays

I hope all of you are having a wonderful end of the year season. We had a great Thanksgiving with family and are now hunkering down for our first Christmas in our new home. I've already picked out the tree we'll cut down. In order to make this month all about family I'm taking a blogging break through the end of the year.

I hope you all have happy holidays!

All about me.

Absolutely forever ago the amazing Crystal Collier nominated me for a blogging award.  Thanks for thinking of me!  I'm always surprised when people remember who I am but I'm so grateful they do. So, here goes.


(Designed and created by Okoto Enigma)
RULES:
1: Put the award logo/image on your blog.

7: Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice, one weird or funny question.



Three things about myself.

1. All three of my children are adopted and next week we have our certification board to become certified foster parents.

2. I read between 60 and 100 books a year. Used to be more but I had kids.

3.I used to fence in college. Not well, but I did it and I had fun. Of course that was my pre-arthritus life and I've had to give up a lot of activities, which has also allowed me to discover new facets of myself.




1. Who is your inspiration?

My mom. She is amazing. Wish I could be more like her.

2. What is the coolest or strangest place you've ever lived?

I'm living in the coolest place ever. The mountains of Colorado. We have 10 acres and so many plans for gardens and animals and fun! We just moved her in April so it will take a little while but we'll get there.
3. If you're not doing it already, what do (did) you want to be when you grow (grew) up?

 Writer. Always writer. I started writing at the age of four.
4. If you had to live under the ocean, what would your best friend be? (Dolphin, shark, whale, seahorse, etc.)

Um, a fish hook? so I could live on land, eat non-seafood and read books
5. What's the last cheese you ate? ;)

I'm not sure but we have gouda, havarti, colby, and Butter Kase in the fridge. And of course Mozzerella for pizza.



 Anyone who wants can take this award, leave a comment so we can all come over and learn about you!
