The Versitile Blogger! My First Award!

Wow! This was certainly nice to wake up to!

Sweet Mona over at More Milestones has given me THIS:

Thank you so much!

So, part of this award is sharing 7 things about myself.

1: I was once a book buyer for a children's book distributor, and still love kid's books to this day!
2: I've always been artsy, and marched to the beat of my own drummer. I love drawing, painting, singing, acting, writing poetry.... but none more than I love photography. (Though singing is a close second)
3: I have a tattoo on my lower back that I got when I was 19, and I drew the art for myself. It's Comedy and Tragedy masks, with fire behind them. It's supposed to represent accepting both the good and the hard things that happen in life, and not being afraid of change(fire is constantly moving and changing, with no fear of what's next). I didn't know until later in life that drama masks are often a prison tattoo....lol.... oh well!
4: I bought my son Nerf Gun Dart tag for his birthday, and my husband pointed out to me that, apparently, I'm changing the rule about not shooting at each other.
5: I get obsessive about organization.
6: I tend to finish one food, before moving on to the next food on my plate. My youngest son does this too, and it drives my husband bonkers.
7: I believe laughter is a gift from God, and that it's truly, often the very best medicine.
