The Sunshine Blog Award…Wowzer!

I received my second award this week….wowzer!

I was nominated for the Sunshine Blog Award from Ania @

 Thank you so very much…I am humbled for sure that you chose me for this awesome sunny award:) Ok now I am to answer 10 questions about me and then pass on the award to 10 other fabulous bloggers.

Ten Questions About Me:

1. My husband says I often have 10 million words per day so he is happy that I blog to get most of them out! I am a writer at heart:)

2. I love each season…as they each have awesome qualities and fun things to photograph:)

3. I love my Mac computers…the iMac is totally awesome and the Mac Book Pro is too. I am hooked to Macs forever!

4. I love music….all kinds…and dance. Dancing to me is the best exercise!

5. Gone With The Wind was my first real epic movie….I read the book in Junior High and managed to fall in love with Clark Gable too!

6. Horses Horses Horses….love all of them!

7. Every summer I lived all summer in the mountains at our cow camp….no TV or other kids to hang out with or no telephone or electricity or running water. I learned from a young age how to entertain myself by being in God’s glorious scenery:)

8. I love natural horsemanship…to me it is the only way.

9. For several years I was a family/marriage/individual counselor…I loved helping people and teaching life skills.

10. I love taking old furniture and refinishing it…I love it when someone tells me that “oh no that is a piece of junk”….then when I get it done and moved to my house the same person says to me “where in the world did you find that piece of beautiful old furniture?” It is fun to make old things new again:)

Here are my 10 nominations for the Sunshine Award!
