Yahoo!!!! Versatile Blogger Award

My twitter friend, Dave Bartlett over at Bartie-Blog has bequeathed me with the Versatile Blogger Award.  I'm so honored to be given this award.  Thank you so much to Dave Bartlett!!!
This is a fantastic way to help each other and spread our voices as writers.
 I'm so happy to be a part of it. 

Here's the rules:


  • Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.

  • Share 7 things about yourself.

  • Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order...)

  • Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

 Here are seven of the most random things about myself I could come up with:

  1. I enjoy cutting up fresh herbs and produce, it relaxes me.
  2. I hate the electric slide.
  3. Neil Diamond's voice make me feel sexy (go ahead and laugh, all my close friends do).
  4. If I could live anywhere in the entire world, I would choose to live on the coast of Oregon.
  5. I feel deeply connected and inspired by Sylvia Plath.
  6. I've never felt more whole as I did while I was pregnant.
  7. If I was able, I would sleep under the stars every night.
Next, here is my list of the fifteen outstanding blogs YOU should visit:

  1. Lori A. May
  2. Jennifer Blanchhard
  3. Cynthia Newberry Martin
  4. Dana Price
  5. Christina Katz
  6. Debbie Ridpath Ohi

  10. E. Victoria Flynn
  11. David Hunter
