A Great Honor

I had the great honor of being given an award! Kate Kresse of Believe Anyway gave me the Candle Lighter Award. I am just tickled. Thank you so very much, Kate!!

I did a little snooping around and came across some rules for accepting an award. (I am assuming these rules are the same regardless of the award, but I could be wrong.) There are five of them:

  1. Thank the person who honored you and give a link to their blog.
  2. Tell seven random facts about yourself.
  3. Pass the award to 15 new-found bloggers.
  4. Contact each blogger onto whom you pass the award and let them know.
  5. Let the giver of the award know whether you accept it or not.

Seven Random Facts About Me

  1. I was born in Salinas, California. After a childhood spent moving around with my Army family, I thought I would never want to move again. The reality is that my parents gave me a wandering spirit, and no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to tame it.  
  2. My fingers are longer than my husbands.
  3. I am always hungry, but rarely know what I want to eat, thus driving Rob crazy when he asks me what I am hungry for.
  4. I love animals. All of them.
  5. Photography is one of my favorite things.
  6. I love warmth and sunshine.
  7. When I retire from wandering, I would like to move back onto a small farm, complete with an orchard and a million and a half chickens, my sweet husband rocking away out on the porch.

Thank you again, Kate, for allowing me to be a recipient of your award.

  1. You deserve every inch of this award! And, your father accepts responsibility for your wanderlust. He’s always looking on line for our next adventure. And if we can’t really afford to go in person, he can at least take a virtual tour. It’s a great way to see the world. Congratulations on your much deserved award. We love you!

  2. I should have specified– forgot to tell you! Other than put the badge on your blog there are no requirements. here is the link that will tell you more. http://believeanyway.wordpress.com/2011/12/18/creation-of-new-blog-award-the-candle-lighter-award/
    You can pass it to as many or few people as you wish. In order for me to list the blog on my blog (via my ‘The Candle Lighter Award’ button) the recipient’s blog must be a G or PG (and rare occasions PG-13) rated by my standards.
    You4 blog is wonderful!
