The Stylish Blogger Award Goes To 15


Kathleen over at Autism Herd awarded this to me on the condition that I post seven things about myself and then pick three more blogs for the award, so here goes….

  1. I’m a country girl at heart.  I grew up with horses, literally as we raised several from the day they were born.  When I was a child I also owned two ducks, six cats and four dogs.
  2. I’ve been a city girl for more than thirty years, but I still love visiting rural areas to get away from it all, and there are times when I don’t think I could make it through the day without man’s best friend, my dogs.
  3. I fell in love in 1982 not with a man, but with the Rocky Mountains.
  4. I still moved to Hawaii twelve years later when I married the love of my life.
  5. My family will tell you I cry at every sad movie or even when I read a sad book.  What can I say?  I can’t help it.  It’s who I am!
  6. I love people who are quirky.  “Normal” is definitely overrated!
  7. I love all kinds of music, but I especially love hearing my own children perform.  I assure you their musical talent did not come from me!

Now drum role please!

The three blogs I nominate are:

  1. Life in the House Asperger Built (I know Laura is everyone’s favorite.)
  2. Puzzle Piece Princess (Kelly’s a military wife who manages to help her two young daughters adjust to all the transitions being a military family requires.)
  3. Wonderfully Wired (Fiona explains so many things so well, but I especially love her post, “10 Things H Wants You to Know”

There are so many others I love too!  I’m so thankful to have found the Autism Blog Directory and Kim and Kathleen and all of you.


  1. I came via blog gems and I really identify with your list. I am really with you on the quirky/normal thing. Quirky is so much more interesting I think!

    • Suzie,
      Thanks for stopping by. I love Jen’s blog hop! It allows us to explore other blogs we might miss otherwise. It is always nice to meet others who appreciate quirky people.

  3. I live in a rural area-but grew up in a city area..I too would love to go to Hawaii one day(I for some reason can NEVER spell it right-thank goodness for spell check!) Thankfully, I do live close to the ocean. Do you miss the cold weather and snow?
    Kim and myself are happy to have you as part of the directory..:)

    • Thanks Kathleen. I do miss snow and winter clothes, although I don’t miss driving in snow storms. I mostly miss snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and downhill skiing. You should visit Hawaii.

  4. Jazzy,
    Thank you and thanks for stopping by. I think everyone should visit Hawaii at least once, but I understand that we are not an easy destination to reach. Yes indeed, quirky is good and definitely more interesting!

  5. Hi there, visiting via Kathleen’s blog! Congrats on your Blog award!

    Oh yes…Quirky is good. Much more interesting!

    Hawaii was always a place of huge interest for me growing. I always wanted to visit but never did!

    xx Jazzy

  7. You are so sweet! It is an honor to be nominated! Seriously thank you. Congrats on your book and I hope you have an AMAZING holiday and take some much deserved time off. Again, much thanks.

    • Kelly,
      Thank you. I am not sure how much time I can afford to take off, the list of things I need to do is too long! But, I am definitely going to slow down during the holidays and spend time with my family.

      I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even decorated the tree. It has lights, but that is it. Guess what I’m doing today?

      Happy Holidays to you and your wonderful family!
