One Lovely Blog Award

This morning I discovered that I was nominated for my first ever blogging award by Diary of an Imperfect Mom. To say that I am flattered is an understatement. I guess I am a  legitimate blogger now. I love how the blogging community really tries to encourage each other to do better.

As a "One Lovely Blog Award" recipient, I have to do three things:

1.) Thank the person who nominated me and link back to their blog (see above)
2.) Share 7 facts about myself
3.) Nominate 10 bloggers for the award!

Without further ado, here are 7 facts about me:

1.) This SoCal gal has never lived outside of a twenty mile radius. I do know lots of people who move away, but they all miss living here terribly.

2. ) I have two brothers. One lives in Hawaii and the other lives in New York. Due to lots of factors I've never been able to visit either one.

3.) I married my husband when I was 33. We've been married almost 17 years now. 

4.) After a series of misfortunes, one of which was my husband's bout with cancer; I had my one and only child three months before my 40th birthday. Our miracle child, a  daughter, is now 10. She is who I mostly blog about. 

5.)  I am a Christian who is learning every day how to love others.

6.) I taught for over 23 years but now I am a SAHM, educational advocate and blogger. 

7.) This is my big news that I've been waiting to share with those who read my blog. At the invitation of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), my daughter and I will be traveling to Washington, D.C. in late April to speak to members of Congress about mental health issues. As you can imagine, I'm thrilled about this. Stay tuned to this site in the coming weeks to learn more abut how you can support me in this endeavor. 

Finally, my 10 nominees are:

10.) Ketchup With a Side of Autism- You can find her here or here.
** You may also find all of these bloggers on Facebook.

I look forward to reading more about my blogger friends.
