Stylish Blogger Award

I was given the Stylish Blogger Award by Suzanne. Thank you so much!

Here are the rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award.
2. Write seven things about yourself.
3. Pass on to seven other bloggers.
4. Tell the seven awardees of their award!

Seven things about me:
1. I spent most of my life living in the shadow of the Rocky Mountains. Now I am enjoying the rolling hills of the Midwest.
2. I cry at baptisms, even if I don't know the family personally. I get so touched when we have a new worker with us in the Kingdom of God!
3. I have family in New Zealand, and I miss them so very much. And I really cried when I was lucky enough to be at my cousins' baptisms there 12 years ago!
4. I have two tattoos. My first is a cross and heart on my left ankle, and I got that one on my 21st birthday. The second is a sun reminiscent of a swirly NZ palm frond that I got right before I turned 30. It is on my lower back (no "tramp stamp" references, please).
5. I had no friends in 7th grade. Middle school is so rough, especially when you are going through it. I am currently taking classes to be a certified substitute teacher. Hopefully I can make a tiny difference!
6. I am inspired and amazed by so many women in my life who are riding the waves of life with such grace. Marriage, divorce, high-risk pregnancy, fetal demise, sexual identity acceptance, loss, illness, unexpected wealth, caregiving, injury, parenting, infertility, addiction, loss, floods...
7. I watch way too much tv. My current watches are Deadliest Catch, Secret Life of the American Teenager, The Good Wife, Parenthood, Make It or Break It, Survivor, Celebrity Rehab, Criminal Minds and Grey's Anatomy.

Now, I bestow this award upon:
1. Crysta at Mindfulness
2. Donna at Hawthorne Hill
3. Mar at Mar's Scraps
4. Amy at Smooches Stampin'
5. Melissa at What do you ink
6. Karen at Stamp Happy with Karen
7. Buffie at Scrapping With Buffie

Enjoy, ladies!
