Reaching Puddle Jumping Status

You guys! I’m finally doing it! I’m hopping on an airplane and headed to a far away land in less than a week! Me! Just a small town girl, đŸŽ¶ living in a lonely wooorrrld, took the midnight train…. ahem. Sorry. Got a little carried away. But seriously… I’m heading to England and France; places that I’ve only ever dreamt of visiting, and I’m so stinkin’ excited! Continue reading

This Just In…

Just kidding. This isn’t breaking news. I’ve been nominated for the Blogger Recognition Award twice in the last week; one from my girl Quinn over at When Do I Get the Manual? and one from Jade at Jaded Mine Fields. Since I’ve been accepting awards left, right, and center, I’m going to combine these two nominations into one post. And because I’ve completed this award a while ago, I’m going to use my same answers, cause, ya know, they haven’t changed any. Continue reading

I’m Not an Addict… You’re an Addict…

Is there something in the water? I mean, I know it’s awards season with the Emmy’s, the Grammys, the Little Lambies, and the Ham Sammies, but this is getting a little out of hand… But not enough to keep me from posting another award nomination. 😛

The always wonderful Nick over at Nick’s Notions has nominated me for an award I have yet to receive. Now, I don’t know what Nick was trying to say with this Blog-aholic Award, but… well… okay, maybe I do have a problem. That’s the first step, right? Admitting you have a problem…? Continue reading

Versatile Blogger Award

I don’t know if you guys and gals have noticed, but I have moved on from telling My Story of my horrific past to sharing my thoughts and feelings on certain topics. For me, as the writer, it’s refreshing. Don’t get me wrong; I started this blog specifically to share my story with people; to help, to inform, to move on… but I like this change in material and am interested to see where it takes me.  Continue reading

3 Day Quote Challenge: Day 1

Hello again. I’m sorry for the pause in my story telling. I have been pretty busy and haven’t had time to dedicate to my blog. But, alas, I have returned and in doing so, I found out that I have been nominated for a challenge. First one yet! The challenge is well, the 3 Day Quote Challenge (if you haven’t guessed by the title). I really like the concept behind this challenge because you can tell a lot about a person from their answers to such questions.

I was nominated…? challenged…? chosen…? ah, whatever… by Meet Me in Nevada Continue reading

Sunshine Blogger Award #2

This is my second Sunshine Blogger Award in 1 week! I am honored to know that people take the time to read what I have to say. Though my subject material is not for everyone, I feel it is important to share.

I was lucky enough to be nominated (for the second time) by Jade Costello. Jade writes about her thoughts on given subject mater in a very eloquent and honest way. Most recently, she posted about Elegance Continue reading
