Behind the Scenes

In the past two weeks I have been lucky enough to receive two blog awards from two very lovely ladies -- the first from Diana of One Crafty Fox and the other from Jessica of Punk Rock Momma. It's always heart warming to know that other people read and appreciate what you have to say, and I personally like to know more about the women behind the blogs that I read. So, to continue to spread the love, here is a combination of both awards which ask for a bit more personal information than your typical outfit post affords.

Name your three best memories:
Christmas Eve at my parent's house - just drinking coffee and telling stories with my family.
Meeting my bestie for the first time - We were paired up as college roommates and immediately became inseparable, as in within minutes.
September 5, 2009 - the day I married my K

Name five things you can't live without:
Wooded running trails
Camping and hiking trips
Time to cook and bake and experiment in the kitchen
Rainy days and quiet time
Kisses from my love

What is the best thing about being a woman?
The quiet, constant strength that we possess - it doesn't need to be elaborately displayed or even explained. It just is.

Name four of the best fiction books you have ever read:
To Kill a Mockingbird
The Kite Runner
Ender's Game
The Chronicles of Narnia
(this list could honestly go on forever....)

State an interesting fact about yourself:
I have a cat named Cooper who is missing his pinky toe and his tail. He acts more like a dog than a cat (he plays fetch) and has more personality than some people that I know.

Because there are so many blogs that I love to read daily, I am passing these awards on to anyone who wishes to participate. I love finding out more intimate details of other bloggers' lives and ideas. It makes this online community we have developed that much more special.

Happy Monday.

Congrats on the awards! :) So nice to read how instantly you and your bestie connected. It happens like that sometimes, doesn't it? I wouldn't want to live without camping/backpacking either! I have been living without the wooded running trails for a while now, but can't wait to get back to them!
