Kreativ Blog Award

A couple weeks ago, during a crazed writing period where I was typing with one hand and holding a tissue in the other, Dianna at These Days of Mine blessed me with the Kreativ blog award. Thanks, Dianna. Her blog is always a breath of fresh air, filled with sunrises and sunsets, and her adorable kitty, Sundae.

To accept the award, one is to share a little about oneself that might draw the interest of others (and encourage them to check out your blog) and then pass it on. It’s a great opportunity for community building; and to find others who are just as sane (or not) as you, is an added bonus. 

I’ll try to NOT put you to sleep, so here goes:

  1. I’m a barefoot country girl, born and raised in W.Va., transplanted to the “big city” of Virginia Beach, where my OLDest brother informed me I must now bathe on Wednesday, as well as Saturday.
  2. I’m the “baby” of the family, the only girl, and probably quite a surprise, arriving when my parents were in their 40s and probably thought they were done raising children.
  3.  All three of my OLDer brothers have served in the military, and I am very proud of them.
  4. All four of us are married to our first-and-only spouse, as were our parents. 
  5. I love the Lord, my God, with all my heart, all my soul, all my mind and all my strength.

The following bloggers are the next recipients of the Kreativ award. I’d like to introduce you to them, in case you haven’t met them yet.

Patti, (another one with an “i”) run4joy59 hails from the midwest U.S., and writes about the “Long and Winding Road to Fitness.”  She’s striving, like most of us, to eat more healthfully and exercise, but while working some incredible hours in retail. She’s making a good go of it and inspires me to do better. She has a couple of cats who share her life.

Nancy, mylifeinphotos has been writing since she could hold a pencil, and is pursuing a 365 challenge to take photos every day. You may be familiar with her “A Word A Day” feature that I’ve been participating in.

Mushy Cloud (I think her name is Pam–please correct me if mistaken ID), writes to us from the UK (?) or somewhere from the other side of the pond. (I did receive a geography lesson not too long ago, but alas, it didn’t stick.) She has many interests including music, photography, cycling, oil painting and sketching to name a few. 

Lenore Diane’s sense of humor caught me immediately. She’s from Georgia, here in the U.S., and can be found at LenoreDiane’sThoughtsExactly

Maxi Malone at Maxiscomments is a writer, and always has something fun to post. She’s living life in sunny Florida. I want to be her when I grow up. 😉

  1. Patti, you and I have something else in common (besides both living in Virginia!). I was the baby in my family too – and my parents were older when I was born.
    Hooray for your brothers serving in the military. AND for each of you being married to your “original” spouse.
    I’m not familiar with any of the blogs you mentioned, so I’m looking forward to paying them a visit!


  2. Patti, thank you very much for the nod. Like you, I’m the youngest. Opposite from you, there are 5 girls and one boy. I’m not sure if it is better to be surrounded by sisters or brothers when you are the ‘only’. I can tell you, after being surrounded by sisters – if I had kids, I wanted boys. (smile) I got what I wanted, too!
    Again, I appreciate the nod. I am glad you enjoy my blog.


    1. You described my daughter’s family! 5th in line is the boy, but he’s holding his own among all those sisters. I’m glad I found your blog, always a bright spot in my day.


  3. Wow!! I’m honoured, thank you for your award!

    And thank you for “liking” my cards and crafts page on Facebook. As you can see we are still in the earliest of early days but we do have big plans 🙂

    I have subscribed to your posts but I can’t seem to find the “add friend” button on your page. I think possibly your security is high?!

    I’ll respond to your blogging award right away, thank you so much!

    God bless you



  4. Aww, Patti (with an “i”)…I’m truly honored…Now I’m going to have to sit down and think of some unique and interesting things about myself…ooh, just had a thought, but you’ll have to read about it later. Wow, I’m impressed that your parents and sibs have all only been married once (isn’t that kind of sad that we’re all so impressed by that? that only being married once is uncommon nowadays?)
    But thanks so much for the award…I’ll be passing it on soon…


  5. ~applause~ Congratulations. Your award is well deserved and well earned. Your blog is an enjoyable and interesting place to visit. Dianna has good taste. 🙂
