Thanks to Edward Burton for this award. I am honored to be in the same category as the others chosen. Please click here to see Edward's post. As a recipient, I am asked to reveal 7 things about myself, which I had fun with in a previous post here. Edward had already been tagged also, so he chose to list 7 things that he loves this time around, which I think I will do as well:
1. I love mornings, don't need an alarm clock, even in a foreign country when day is night, and night is day. I suspect that my brain must have a setting called "first light".
2. I've always loved dogs. When other children slept with their teddy bears, I preferred a real live puppy. Still do.
3. I adore anything lemony, the fragrance (fresh), the tartness (the best) and the color (Monet's gorgeous kitchen table and chairs)
4. My favorite colors are the colors of the ocean: blues, teals, turquoises and purples. My closet and home are full of them.
5. I love Pilates; the whole concept of core strength, the story behind it's origin; the focus it requires,and the fact that, like yoga, you exercise in your bare feet...and well, just everything about it.
6. I love people with a great sense of humor. It is a very important quality to look for in a mate, and an added bonus when both your children and your husband keep you in stitches. Laughter really is the best medicine.
7. And 7th on the list is my favorite number... 7- it just fits me, always has, even literally (ring, hat and gloves...)
And I am passing this award onto these artists...
