1. Thank the person who loved me enough to bestow this gift. 2. Share seven things about myself. 3. Bestow this honor onto 10 newly discovered or followed bloggers–in no particular order–who are fantastic in some way. 4. Drop by and let my ten new friends know I admire them.

1. I used to be the baby sister, but now I am in the middle. I have two older sisters and two younger half-brothers. 2. When I was a kid, I caught a snapping turtle while fishing. 3. When I was in second grade, I was the poppy queen. I went around on Veterans Day and sold red poppies to help support the vets. 4. From the age of six, I wanted to be a teacher or a writer. 5. When I was around nine years old, I began corresponding with a pen pal. We stayed in touch for 3 years. 6. At the age of 13, I considered attending Barbizon Modeling School. Good thing nothing came of that. I am one of the most unphotogenic people I know. 7. I'm so afraid of water I've never learned to swim. Why do we go to the beach every year for vacation? I don't have an answer, but I don't go any further out than up to my ankles.
Now I'm going to spread the love to the blogosphere:
