Lovely Blog, Right Here :)

Terry over at Through the Lens of My Life nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award, and I am so thankful and super excited. It feels like I’ve won an Oscar, especially being so new to blogging. Terry has an amazing eye for her photography, and is so creative! You have to stop over and see the wonderful things she’s doing, you won’t be sorry.

Lovely Blog Award

Thank you Terry for nominating me! Check her work out at

The One Lovely Blog Award recognizes blogs considered to be lovely, written by bloggers who share their story or thoughts in a beautiful manner to connect with their viewers and followers. The nominees are chosen by fellow bloggers, and the nominations are presented to new and up-and-coming bloggers. The purpose of the award is to not only give recognition, but to help the new blogger reach more viewers as well.

If nominated, in order to “accept” the award, you must follow these guidelines:
* Thank the person who nominated you for the award.
* Add the One Lovely Blog logo image to your acceptance post.
* Share 7 facts/or things about yourself.
* Nominate about 15 (I have seen 10 as a suggestion as well) bloggers you admire and inform nominees by commenting on their blog.

7 Things about me

  • My daughter and I share the same birthday (September 11).
  • I love photography and editing, but I have to be in the mood to be very successful. I should really take pictures more regularly.
  • I still have not decided what I want to be “when I grow up”. It’s much too hard to choose just one thing.
  • I’m a card carrying member of the International Independent Showman’s Association (Carnival Worker’s), but I don’t work for a carnival.
  • I hate cold weather, I’m a big weenie about it.
  • I love technology, but have been trying to use it with thought instead of just killing time.
  • I went on my first retreat in September, and it was like nothing I’ve ever experienced! (I will write about it soon)

Now that we have that difficult task complete (it really is hard talking about yourself sometimes), let’s nominate some of my favorite blogs, I’m gonna stick with 10 instead of 15. This has turned out to be harder than talking about myself! Without further ado, in alphabetical order:

Victim to Charm

If any of my nominees decide not to accept the award because they’ve already received it or they just don’t want to participate, that’s fine too. Please accept my nomination as recognition for your work, and an atta girl or atta boy! 🙂 I find your blog interesting, most of these for different reasons, but mostly because each of you inspire me in some way. Thank you for that!

If you are a nominee and decide to accept the award, you can use the One Lovely Blog logo above that was presented to me.

Thanks again to Terry for the nomination, I feel like a million bucks! Please stop by Through the Lens of My Life, you really won’t be disappointed!

  1. Thank you so much, Lanah, for your nomination! I feel really honored. I have done the Lovely Blog Award already (see here:
    But I thought I might post some random facts about me here, just for you ;-):
    1. I love chocolate and have a really hard time not to eat a whole bar at once
    2. I do not like to go shopping. Not at all. I need to know where I find what I want (which is usually not easy) and then it is in and out.
    3. I rather spend my evenings with my family than going out
    4. Although I am a red head my skin is not fair. I can bake in the sun easily and I get a nice color.
    5. When I asked my husband what he wants me to do (he promoted me to a certain position back in the days we used to work together) he said: Just look good and keep smiling… He meant it but not in a offensive way 😉
    6. I really enjoyed working for and with my husband and I would do it again
    7. I tend to only read books when we go on a holiday. I have no clue why…

    • Love it! Thank you for sharing more about yourself with me, fun stuff! 🙂 Nominations were hard, and I do enjoy your blog so that’s why you got picked. Consider it a big pat on the back, a standing ovation, or whatever other “atta girl” you’d like.

      • Ih, I really do! It’s why I try to make “an effort” and share something with you, rather then just saying thank you ;-). I will mention your blig as well… Just trying to figure out the right way 😉

  2. Thank you for your exuberant thank you, and thank you for your kind words. This is all still fairly new to me too!

    I look forward to more of your posts! 🙂
