Must say, I was thrilled when Read Cook Live nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award last week. It’s a good chance to take some time to reflect on ten other blogs that I’d love to nominate (obviously, this is post will take longer than fifteen minutes!).
Blogging is such a funny medium and a true leap of faith. I’m always thrilled when I hear from somebody that read and liked my blog that I didn’t meet somewhere along the way (Like at a writers’ conference or the grocery store or at a cocktail party or–you get the point). So thank you, Read Cook Live. I’ll start with assigned protocol and give seven random facts about me:
Seven Random Facts!
7.) I’ve taught almost every age from preschool to grad school in some capacity or the other.
6.) Kayaking the New River Gorge in West Virginia, I got sucked out of my boat and had to swim away from undercut rocks while a girl screamed, “Swim or die!”
5.) Don’t look in my closets, they are very bad, very very bad.
4.) I’m allergic to cats, apples, hamsters, plums, some perfume, ragweed, rabbits, hay, guinea pigs, cherries, and peaches.
3.) If I lived back in time, I think I would have had my babies outdoors and then just got back to work in the fields, or the factory, or whatever.
2.) Because I wouldn’t spend five dollars for a map, my husband and I almost lost our truck down a ravine in Colorado while heading to a ghost town. I now purchase the maps.
1.) Some of my best friends are named Julie.
