An Award & 7 New Things

What a surprise, I received this Award button from the very inspiring Sandy of Getting Fit and Loving it. Reading her posts is both inspirational and her wit always brings a smile to my day. I recently had the privilege to give this award to Sandy – and that she would honour me with it as well, was very touching. I hope I continue to inspire Sandy as she does me, and that anyone who stops by for a visit finds some inspiration.

The rules of the award are; the recipient list 7 things about herself: so here in keeping with the rules - I’m submitting 7 “new” things – for the original 7 click here.

7 – things about me:

1) I miss the my Father dearly

2) The rebel in the family (I’m the eldest of 3)

3) Carmel is my favourite ice-cream topping

4) If I could only eat one type of food – it would be Seafood (all shell fish)

5) Oysters and champagne are my all time fav.

6) I’m not a fan of spicy food

7) I have been to Hong Kong and Thailand

Then pass the award on ...
These blogs certainly are versatile - the authors cover lifestyle and all its bits... I present to you ...
The next recipients of the Versatile Award:

Trying to Look Fab in your Forties - Your fashion finds and witting writting both inspire and make me smile.

French Mademoiselle - Your look of the week posts have been a great inspiration in rebuilding my wardrobe... your food blog Paris Pastry - can't wait to be able to start trying out the fabulous recipes you share.

Champagne & Macarons - I can't help but feel uplifted when I visit C&M's Blog ... love the music! and your images always inspire me in fashion, interior design or just life.

Castles Crowns and Cottages - Anita, the images and beautiful music on your Blog bring a sense of peace and simpler time - often forgotten. Your writing is exquisite and you are most inspiring.

I would also like to take this opportunity to award Life in Quotations with a very special award for reaching 101 followers!!! Congratulations my friend!!! His blog has inspired me to open up more in my own writing, in hopes that it will also help others. No topic is taboo with this exceptional, thought provoking writer - emotional, intellectual, spiritual, sexual, philosophical, social, physical - he and his readers cover it all, in a respectful manner. Take a moment to explore Life in Quotations and congratulate him on breaking the 101 bench mark - we all so eagerly hope to reach.

Of course every award comes with a little extra work, so my friend - you are required to list 10 things that make you happy, try to do at least one of them today. Then as blog sites that inspire you, reach 101 followers - you are to pass it on.


  1. Thank you so much dear!! I will blog & brag about the award as soon as I can!
    Have a lovely week!

  2. I love to know more about you and now I'm going to check the others blogs !
    Congratulations !!!

  3. Yay for awards! They are such a nice way to start the day! Congrats!

  4. Congrats on a double award! As for seafood, right there with you .... yum shellfish! Especially lobster. And now you are making me hungry for Maryland crabs too ... ( :

  5. congratulations and what an insightful post you've written in response ! Lovely !!

  6. Thanks sweetie, this is quite unexpected! I couldn't access it at work all day (aarrgghhh!!) and I was wondering what you had in store. I don't know what to say except that your words of encouragement have always helped spur me on, and I endlessly thank you for it.

    That I inspire you to open up more in your writing is more than I could ever ask for. I find digging deeper and revealing that to others to be as liberating as it is unnerving. People will accept many things if they truly believe in you. I do.

    Tons of love
