Beautiful Blogger Award

I was humbled to receive the Beautiful Blogger Award from Lindsey over at Tidbits Parenting.  I feel like we're navigating the new blogger waters together, girl.  It is nice to know that someone is reading :)  The rules for the award are simple: 1) link to the person who nominated you,  2) tell 7 things about yourself people might not know  3) nominate 15 more beautiful bloggers!

7 things:

1.  I'm married to my high school sweetheart.  We broke up in high school and got back together my first year of college.  I knew when I was 16 I was going to marry him.  We were at his grandmother's on Easter sunday and I was holding his baby cousin.  He came in from playing basketball with his family, sat down next to me, and when I turned to look at him and saw his face, watching me hold that baby, I had a moment where I just knew I would have his children.  Sappy, I know.

2.  I wrote my masters thesis on eighteenth-century literature.  It is titled "'A Subject so Shocking': The Female Sex Offender in Richardson's Clarissa."  It is available online if you are really bored.

3.  When I was 18, my greatest aspiration was to be a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company - this did not work out.

4.  I make felt toys for extra income and because it's fun.

5.  My proudest possession is my 1991 Toyota Previa mini-van, because we bought it outright.

6.  My favorite ice cream is chocolate peanut butter.

7.  I hand make my children's birthday and Christmas presents because I think the time spent makes them more special.  I hope a few of them last and become heirlooms.
