One Lovely Blog Award

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.

    How cool! Thanks so much for the nomination, it’s just what I need to get my head back in the blog game. Hugs, Julie.

    Thanks so much for the shoutout! Love the random facts–between kayaking and having babies the old-fashioned way, and almost losing your truck down a ravine, you sounds pretty hardcore. :)

  3. I haven’t bee called hardcore for years. Thanks so much!

    Thank you Julie, for thinking of my blog for this award. It is very much appreciated.

  6. Pete says:

    Thanks for the call out. I’ll be sure to check out everyone on your list. Or maybe I won’t. Not sure yet. Thanks again!

  7. Pete, can’t wait to see your seven facts about you!

  8. Thanks so much, Julie. I took your advice way back when and started adding buttermilk to our gluten-free recipes. It did the trick. Every time I do it, I think about you. :)

  9. Lenore Diane says:

    Thank you muchly for the mention, Julie!
    Now hold on a second… you are allergic to apples?! You had a recipe for homemade applesauce last week. Were you able to enjoy the goodness?
    And, I am glad you and your husband made it out alive after the whole ravine thing. Is it wrong, though… I’m curious to learn if you found any ghosts?

  10. My allergies stop as soon as the fruit is cooked. Though, I only really like apples. Nothing like your throat closing up to make you not like to eat something!
