A Versatile Blogger

I love my blog.  It's my little corner of the world and I absolutely love posting my words and photos.

And I definitely love when you comment!  That's my favorite.  I read every comment, usually more than once.  When I get that little ding on my phone telling me there is a comment, I get so excited!

So, thank you so much for reading and thank you for commenting.  It means the world to me.

And to top it all off, a fellow blogger Sydney Aaliyah sent me a Versatile Blogger Award!  How cool is that?

Thank you so much, Sydney.  You made my day!

Now, I am supposed to tell you seven things about me that you may or may not know and award 15 other bloggers who I consider Versatile Bloggers.

1.  I've NEVER lived in the same apartment/house for more than two years.  That's crazy and exhausting.  

2.  I have two tattoos.  I got my first one about four years ago. My mom hates them.  But, that's not why I did it. 

3.  I HomeSchooled my daughter from 6th through 12 grade and it was a wonderful experience.
     Contrary to common belief, she had a very full education and social life.  She even went to Prom. 

4.  I am absolutely terrified of flying.  Completely and utterly terrified.  Tears and rocking, terrified.
     Luckily, there is usually a wonderful adventure at the other end of the flight to make it worthwhile. 

5.  In spite of that fear, I'm determined to visit 50 countries by the age of 50.
     I'm only up to 18 and have less than 5 years to go. TE is 3 countries away from 100.  Show off. 

6.  I've recently taken up running for the first time in my life.  I plan to run a 10K by the age of 50
     and be a proper runner for the next half of my life.  

7.  After 20 years as a bookkeeper, I went back to school to get my accounting degree and
     to become a CPA.  My certification should be in the mail any day now.

So here's my list of 15 Versatile Bloggers.  Should you chose to accept  the award, this is what you do.  Thank you for blogging and sharing your world.


1.  A Suitcase and Stilettos
2.  Collage of Life
