I'm Here...and More

Drumroll please...
Jan of photoplay awarded me with the esteemed honor of the

And in accepting this award I have been asked to do the following:   
Thank and link back to the person who awarded me.
Share 7 things about myself.
Pay it forward to fifteen recently discovered bloggers.
Contact those bloggers about the award.

I know a good deal about myself these days and I know I can fulfill the first and second requirement.  However, the third will be difficult as I have been following my favorite and the same bloggers for the past eight months.  That said, I know I need to broaden my horizons a whole lot more and this award will make me conscious enough to do just that.  In the meantime, here goes:

Thank you Janice of photoplay for this esteemed award.

I am in love with my husband and he is my best friend.  
I am passionate about being a mother to my two wonderful sons and a "mother mentor" to youth whenever and wherever I can.
I love the world of art and am painfully aware that I may not have what it takes to be famous for it.
I love to workout as long as it is fun and is not competitive to the point where I may ruin another's day (or life) if I cannot perform to a level of another's expectation.
I desire travel to exotic locals and have every intention of going to all of my desired spots in the world before I leave this world.
I love to cook and eat really good food...I mean really good!
I am an introvert but everyone else thinks I am an extrovert.  (I love to spend time by myself big time!)

Now allow me to introduce the one and only Amy of Wine Country Wedding Planner!
She has only just begun, but because I know her talents and have had the excitement of reading her very first blog ever, I bestow this honor to her....


  1. Congrats Debra!
    You have a great "7 things".



  2. Always a pleasure to hear from you. Liking to be by yourself doesn't make you an introvert. It just makes you sensible...

  3. Adrienne, Adrienne and Janice,
    It is so fun to look at yourself from this perspective!
