Feeling the Love ~ Another Award

I received another award the other day
from Carol over at

I really feel special
when one of these awards
are bestowed upon me...

because it is for something
I really love to do.

It brings out my
and lets me pour my heart out
when I want to.

There are some rules of course
to follow when receiving this
they are:

~thank this person who nominated you for the award
~copy the logo and place it on your blog
~link to the person who nominated you
~name 7 things about yourself that people may not know
~nominate 7 creative bloggers
~post their links
~leave a comment on each

So without further ado....

Thank you to Carol for nominating me for this award
her blog makes my mouth water
You should really run over and check her out!

Now for the 7 things you may wish you never knew about me:

I have spent most of my life in the Maritimes and consider myself
a Maritimer even though I was born in Toronto.

I worked in retail for 18 years - 17 of them at the same place
Eaton's ~ which is now out of business. I worked my way up the ladder and made lots of memories and friendships that continue today. I really miss that store and will always be an Eatonian in my heart.

I hate green beans ~ like the yellow ones but not the green.
Trevor says they taste the same ~ they - do -not!

When I was growing up I wanted to be a singer. I would enter
talent shows and sing in Christmas concerts.
Music has been and is a big part of my life.

I have a group of friends that I started Grade 1 with that I still hang around with today. Our lives have taken us all in different directions through the years ~ but we all come back together, have a couple of drinks and remember when. We do have some great stories ~ we really do!

When I go to bed at night I have to have one foot stuck out from beneath the covers.
It is almost like my toes need to breathe.

We tried to have a baby for 2 years ~ went through fertility drugs and the likes.
There was nothing medically wrong ~ it just didn't happen for us.
I have stopped apologizing for not having kids.
I have learned to live with it ~ I wish everyone else would.
It does make me sad that Trev's parents will never have grandchildren...
and I like to think I would have been a good Mom
it just was not meant to be.


I would like to nominate in no particular order:

Kim ~ mimicharmante
this is the sweet sweet girl that introduced me to blogging
and if I did not love her so much, I would hate her.

Simone ~ The Bottom of the Ironing Basket
this is my sister from across the pond
I have "known" her for almost 10 years
and cannot wait until we actually get a chance to sit down
with a glass of wine, listen to 80's music and talk and talk and talk...

Zizette ~ Chez Zizi
this is another dear friend whom I met on line when we were planning our weddings.
I was a lucky girl when I got a chance to meet her in person this summer
when we were on vacation and she was everything I expected and more.

Cathi ~ Everyday Adventures of a Curious Gal
I love to visit Cathi's blog as I usually leave with a smile on my face!

Jackie ~ Home
this is the spot where I love to go each and every day.
Her images are gorgeous and someday we will get together
and have that glass of wine!

Maggie ~ The White Farmhouse
I stumbles across Maggie when I first started blogging.
I love her sense of humor and her creativity.

Lisa ~ Recaptured Charm
I just found her through another blog and was blown away by her projects!
She is also a fellow Canuck ~ so she has to be a good girl...right?!

Now I am heading off to leave everyone a comment!!

Oh ~ I almost forgot ~
I received a package this week from Cathi!
I won her giveaway for her 100th post
so as soon as I upload my pictures
I will tell you all about it.

I am truly spoiled!
