Lucas nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award! I’m SO honored to be nominated by one of the most loving and inspiring people I’ve had the pleasure of talking to since joining WordPress. Lucas is fighting his way back to health. He was almost paralyzed from a spinal chord injury he sustained while playing basketball and he’s teaching himself to walk and move again. If you guys haven’t discovered Lucas yet, you HAVE to go check him out. He has the most positive attitude of anyone I’ve known in such a condition. He’s a fighter AND a lover and so encouraging. Love you Lucas!
For this award, I’m supposed to name 7 interesting facts about myself. I’ll try to mention things I haven’t already said before, which will be hard, so bare with me! lol
- In my late 20’s, I battled (and won) anorexia.
- I have a spare bedroom that I’m trying to turn into a library.
- I have NO patience.
- I hate the sound of the letter “p”.
- I’ve had so many blood transfusions that I’ve lost count.
- When I was little, I wished my name would have been “Renee’ or Maria”.
- One of my very favorite movies is “The Sound of Music”.
Now, I have to nominate 15 people and this is the hardest part. SO many people I follow are versatile and interesting. I wonder if we can nominate people who’ve already been nominated?
Prego and the Loon (my so called fairy tale uncensored) All I can say is WOW. Check her out.
