Back on April 24, 2013, I was nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award by Knitting Rays of Hope. Thank you! Holy Moly! I didn’t expect that! I have been remiss on accepting the award. There are a few requirements to do so, and I’ve just been dealing with a very crazy world the past couple of weeks, so just haven’t had a few moments to do so.

  5. I’ve lived in 4 different states and in 11 different homes.
  6. I like the person I am today much more than the person I was 10 years ago.
