My Scottish friend and fellow Etopia Press author, Shehanne Moore, was nice enough to bestow me with the ONE LOVELY BLOG Award. So, before I thank the Academy and grant the NY Times an interview, I must fulfill the obligations that come with fine honor.
First, I want to say thank you to Shehanne for thinking of me. Please take a second to check out Shehanne’s blog “Furious Unravelings.”
Second, the rules of this honor ask for me to reveal 7 things about me. But I’m a bit boring, so how about 7 things on my bucket list?
5. I’d love to visit Africa and go on a safari. A safe safari.
6. I’d love to live in Europe for a while. Not forever. I’m proud and happy to be an American. Yet I feel a calling to spend an extended amount of time in either Tuscany, Germany or The Netherlands. Really, I’m not fussy…any one will do.
7. I’d like to be brave as my daughters. Not to get too mushy (yes, I have a little teardrop in the corner of my eye), but they reach out and try things I’d never have done at their age. Heck, I’m not sure I’d do them now. Still, they inspire me to try harder.
Now I will pass the blog torch to seven of my friends with lovely blogs, too. If you want, please post this to your blog and do 7 of “something”…things we don’t know about you, 7 favorite things etc. If you’re busy to play along, no worries…I still think you deserve this!
