I Humbly Accept...but i can't play by the rules

i'm wondering how to handle this...while i'm completely honored and humbled to be granted this award by my sweet and talented  next-door roomie Chrissy from the bepresent retreat last month, and after my initial panic of having to think of 7 interesting things about myself wore off, the fact is that (sadly) i can't play by the rules because i can't nominate 7 new blogs to pass the award along to.....  (most of the blogs i read have already been nominated) so i'll do what i can...

Here are the rules:

1. 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 find interesting.

5. nominate 7 Kreative 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.
Here are my 7 things:
1.  i just got back from 3 days up on palomar mountain.  i've been going on "solo retreats" for about 6 years now and absolutely love it. i think this was the best yet (couple of photos below - more to come!)
2.  i grew up in michigan, but opted to skip my college graduation ceremony in favor of heading (sight unseen!) to california.  within about a week i had a job, an apartment on the ocean, 2 room-mates and a boyfriend (those were the days!)
3.  i'm a natural blonde and have never (yet) tried coloring my hair.
4.  i'm a pretty healthy eater, but i like my candy and eat it every day - mostly chewy stuff - red licorice, gummy worms and best of all, laffy taffy (don't tell my dentist!)
5.  i've been married to the same guy for 31(!) years.  we've had 5 motorhomes (mostly lemons!) and have been to dozens of really out-of-the-way places and hiked hundreds of miles of trails.
6.  my favorite store is the goodwill (and salvation army, amvets, etc.) i was thrift shopping long before it became cool and environmentally friendly.
7.  i've always wanted to live in a log cabin.  it can be really simple, but has to have a killer view!
so there you have it... and now i nominate 2 very worthy candidates:
About Memories and More (Kirsten)
sorry i couldn't follow the rules - i guess i should get out there and read more blogs... enjoy the photos below


  1. Thanks for picking me Patty! What a nice surprise!

  2. Thanks Patty! I love your photos as always! I am so glad you are blogging!

  3. i've always wanted to live in a log cabin too. I used to love my cabins made with Lincoln Logs. Too bad it's not quite so easy to build an actual-sized cabin. ;)


I would love to hear from you!!
