Very Inspiring Blogger Award!

I'm thrilled to be nominated by The Spotted Owl for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love writing this blog and being recognized in such a way is just the best news, you made my day. :)

I'm a new blogger so everything about the blogging world has been a learning and discovering experience for me. I had no idea how big and involved it was, and I'm humbled that people are taking the time to read what I have to say. Yesterday was my biggest visitor number to date, you guys rock!

Below are the rules for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award so please follow carefully:

1. Display the logo award on your blog.
2. Link back to the person who nominated you.
3. State 7 things about yourself.
4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them.
5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award's requirements.

Seven Facts About Me:

1. I love music. If I'm ever having a bad day I just grab my iPod, put in my earbuds and continue on. It blocks the world out and I can continue with whatever I was doing surrounded by tunes I love.

2. My favourite movie is Casino Royale.

3. I'm married to hands down the best man on the planet for me, my soulmate. We "get" each other and that makes everything else so easy.

4. I'm the oldest of six children.

5. I want to travel, and show my children (and myself) the world.

6. I love quotes, and find great inspiration in them.

7. I love to shop....for pretty much anything, retail therapy at it's finest.
