Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Thank you to


for nominating me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. Very kind. Creating this blog has given me more than I could have imagined. It was something I felt compelled to do. It is fueling my creativity, opening my world so I can connect with people who share my passions.  IT has been a blessing and inspiration to find bloggers such as Lets Spread

In accepting this award:

1.Thank the person who nominated you.

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

3. Pass the award to 7 nominees.

7 things about myself…

1) I love to travel, read about travel ,watch movies about travel. When I was 18 I did a solo backpacking trip in Europe. After I earned my Bachelor’s Degree I traveled to Nepal and India for 3 months,studying Buddhism at a monastery outside Kathmandu for several weeks.  three years I ago I drove cross country and back after ending a seven year relationship that was very unhealthy. I took the trip to get back to myself..I had lost myself in someone else’s needs and problems.

2) I have 3 nephews that I love dearly and would do anything for.

3)I love animals, especially dogs and especially my rescue pup Gracie.

4) I love, love music. It is a passion. It inspires me, comforts me and moves me. I enjoy all types…lately I am listening to Michael Franti, Xavier Rudd & Brandi Carlile along with a host of others.

5) I love the outdoors and doing just about anything outdoors…hiking, biking, kayaking, backpacking, skiing, snowshoeing, skating

6) I love to learn and try new things. I love adventure. I love meeting new people.

7)I have struggled most of my life with depression and anxiety. It has taken a lot from me. The past year I feel as though it is the first time in my life that I am controlling the anxiety and depression rather than the other way around. I am relearning what love is or maybe it’s rediscovering what love is…maybe we are born knowing deep within the heart and depending on the environment we grow up in love will grow or diminish and hide until it is safe to nurture and expand once again

7 nominations- I find it difficult to just pick 7 but here goes

    3. I love my dog even when he misbehaves.
    4. I enjoy many genres of music from classical to country, rock to R&B, and gospel to get-down-and-dance good tunes.
    5. I feel so inspired, connected and at peace in nature.
    6. My favourite season is spring with all the new life abounding, but I like the cold and snow of the winter season.
