Tag, You're It!

I am so excited! Gabby of gabby she wrote has tagged me for the Kreativ Blogger awards (thank you so so much, Gabby!)! gabby, she wrote is blog-tastic and one of my daily must-reads, so check out her fun and clever posts! I think this process is so neat because I've discovered more lovely blogs to brighten my day!

Here are the rules:

Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2) Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4) Name 7 things about yourself that people might not know.
5) Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6) Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7) Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know they have been nominated.

My Seven

1) I have hated zucchinis with a fiery passion since I was four years old (no joke, I remember being sent to bed without supper after refusing to eat zucchinis in stewed tomatoes - I mean really, that is SO gross).

2) While I love most kinds of music, movie and musical soundtracks reign supreme on all my track lists. In particular, I will always have a place in my heart for John Williams (the score composer of the Star Wars movies, E.T., Seven Years In Tibet, Memoirs of a Geisha).

3) I will always wish that I had pursued a career in voice performance to be either a Broadway or opera singer like Renee Fleming

4) When I was eight, my mom and I moved to Maine by ourselves (my dad stayed behind in upstate New York to finish out his job). The two of us lived in an old house in a tiny fishing village on the Maine coast. This wonderful and scary experience brought us even closer than we already were, and continues to every time recollect that year.

5) I stayed on an island in Maine by myself for three days and two nights with only a sleeping bag, a jug of water, and a handful of trail mix (I was on an Outward Bound trip).

6) I studied abroad for a year in England. One day while I was walking down the street in Oxford, I ran into Mr. Bean (aka Rowan Atkinson), who, bespectacled and sporting a perfectly grey and black argyle sweater, nodded to me in a most Bean-like manner and continued down the street, leaving me in a fit of giggles.

7) I learn things the hard way.

And there you have it!

Now I tag the following blog-tastic writers who I admire greatly:

1) Ingrid of The Scenic Route
2) Danielle of Sticky Candy
3) erin of reading my tealeaves
4) Pearl of MAYA & RUHI
5) Emily of wide open spaces
6) Julia of The Red Otter Shop
7) Anne of The City Sage
Happy Thursday!
