I was recently awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by the lovely JamieAnne, creator of A Dash of Domestic . JamieAnne’s blog is a wonderful mix of recipes, tips, and stories about life. I really enjoying reading her posts, and love her sense of humor.
Once you have received the VBA, you then pass it on to seven bloggers that you enjoy, and share seven things about yourself.
I am passing on the Versatile Blogger Award to the following people because they either make me laugh, make me think about life, have wonderful recipes or all of the above. Please take a moment (or many moments) to check out their blogs. It will be well worth it, I promise. (*Note: claiming your award is simply saving the award image, so you can re-post it)
Now the seven things about moi:
1. A few years ago, I fulfilled my dream of owning my own restaurant. It was a small, beautiful cafe and bakery, where we made everything from scratch using as many local ingredients as possible. It was successful, and it was one of the most incredible, fulfilling journeys I have been on. Unfortunately due to several (out my control) events, I had to close the cafe. But I have moved on, and plan on opening a bakery when I move back east.
2.Before my restaurant venture, I was a freelance graphic designer. I now use that creative energy to create custom cakes. (Art is art)
3.When I was 18 I got a fairly good-sized tattoo on my left arm. At age 33, I wish I had really thought that one through.
4.I have not ridden a bicycle since I was about 14 years old, and am fairly certain that if I were to get on one today, I would break my neck. (I know, I know, once you learn, you never forget, but I am not sure if I believe that)
5. I shattered my elbow when I was in the third grade. My father thought it was “nothing”, and made me eat a french fry (we were at the park having lunch) – I guess he thought this would make me feel better. That one french fry caused me to have to wait until the following day to have reconstructive surgery.(After my mother convinced him something was seriously wrong, they rushed me to the E.R.) Two metal pins later, and week spent in the hospital, I was allowed to go home. I have sported a 5 inch long scar ever since.
6.I love to go camping. Not the luxury RV kind either. In a tent, in the woods.
7.I absolutely love cars. Muscle cars, classics…really any nice looking car will do. One of my dreams to is to restore a Jaguar XKE or a 1969 Mustang Mach 1 Fastback. Ahhh…someday…and then I will be that old person with the really hot car.
Thank you again JamieAnne, I feel honored that you selected me.
