Kreativ Blogger Award

Thank you Being Me for the honor :)

Now it is my task to pass it on to 7 bloggers and list 7 things about myself.

1) One of my first memories is when I was 3 years old. I was sitting in our garage trying to tie my shoes (red Keds, how’s that for the 80s?!) and I finally got it! I remember feeling so proud of myself.

2) I have been extraordinarily lucky to have visited 14 countries in the last 3 years and not had to shell out a dime (sans souvenirs) They called it “work”, but it was anything but.

3) I have a 19 year old cat… at least, that is our best guess. We saved her from an abusive family in 1993, and it was the vet’s best guess that she as about 2 years old. She has been through elementary, middle and high school, as well as my adventures in college and now adulthood. She really does have nine lives.

4) When I was a junior in college, our basketball team fought their way to the NCAA championship game by winning the Final Four on a Sunday night. Monday after class, my roommate and I decided we wanted to go to that game. We drove non-stop overnight from 7PM-11AM, crashed at her parent’s house for about 4 hours, went to the game (which we did win, btw!), got back to her parent’s house around midnight, slept for 5 hours then drove home from 6AM-9PM Wednesday. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my college life!

5) I think it is crazy how true the Gain commercials are. I have to compulsively smell my laundry when it is done drying. It smells so freaking good.

6) I have a photographic memory. It is especially heightened when numbers are present. This made it extremely easy major in math and rarely have to study.

7) I think black licorice might be the most disgusting thing ever.

My 7 Bloggers to pass this award to:
I pass this on to anyone who pours their heart and soul out to the world in order for their own healing, and by happen-stance, the healing of others. Bless you.

Lily congrats on your award.

Oh, man I agree with licorice black or red being disgusting!

Wow, you have been to a lot of places in your short life.

Your cat is almost as old as my male cockatiel who will turn 21 in December. Wow, those teenage years were difficult with him. ;)

Blessings to you dear Lily.

Thanks for sharing more about you. This is cool! And congrats on the award--well deserved!

Wow! You've done a lot of traveling. I'd like to visit more countries myself some day. I tend to have a photographic memory myself. Alas, it doesn't seem to work with numbers--but I can "see" words on the page and this helped me with my studies.
