"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be."

-Shel Silverstein



I received two more awards recently!

The first on is the Seven Colors Award. It was given to me by Tywo over at The Purple Fairy...thanks so much Tywo!!

For this award, you're supposed to list seven things that make you happy, so here it goes:

1. This family picture

2. Thunderstorms

3. My wonderful friends

4. Painting/Drawing

5. Old Pictures

6. Musicals

7. My pup Levi :)

The second is the A Blog with Substance Award that i received from Natasha at Natasha's Corner.

With this award, you're supposed to sum up your blogging experience, philosophy, and motivation in 5 words. Hmm...I guess I would have to say, "sharing my life with others." Lame, I know, but I can't think of anything! :)

Now, instead of sharing this with 7 for the first one and 10 for the second one, I'm just going to pass them on to 3 bloggers each.

Seven Colors is going to...

Natasha @ Natasha's Corner
Veronica @ V-Chronicles
Krysten @ After 'I Do'

A Blog with Substance is going to...

Melanie @ Unravelled Threads
Christy @ 25 Before 25
Tywo @ The Purple Fairy
