one lovely blog award

May 17, 2012

I woke up this morning to this message: “Just stopping by to say that I’ve nominated you for the ‘One Lovely Blog’ Award! Your photos are so delicious-looking, you really make me want to experiment with more vegan recipes… so thank you!” Say what? Sunshine, homemade granola, a kiss from my husband, a hug from my daughter, trilliums blooming in our front yard, and now this?! Wow. It is a good day. The nomination came from Allison at Spontaneous Tomato and it said that I had to display the blog award, create a link to the site that nominated me, write 7 random facts about myself, and create some links to blogs I love. Okey dokey smokey. I can do that.

7 Random Facts About Me

I have a total weakness for nice bed linen.

When I was little I broke my sister’s talking Barbie and hid it behind the radiator. I still haven’t told her.

I’ve been known to write a poem or two. Here’s one about my grandmother.

I buy fresh flowers almost every week. Preferably pink or orange. Or both. Peonies are my favourite.

I’m officially afraid of heights. I found out half way up a Mayan temple in Coba, Mexico in February.

If I had to choose between living in Paris or New York I would choose New York.

I eat artichoke but I’ve actually never prepared one. I should get on that.

7 Blogs that Inspire Me

So here’s to the one lovely blog award. Allison is one lovely blogger and I thank her. And you, dear reader, are one lovely blog-follower and I thank you too.
