Crowning Moments! Passing Around More Love

I was just given a blogger award!

When I got the email from Jen over at A Book, a Girl, a Journey that she was passing on an award to me, I was astounded. I admire Jen a ton and love her writing. She is so talented and I was so honored that she would think of me.

So, thank you so much for making it all worth it.

Seven little-known facts about me include:
1. I do an awesome impersonation of Tarzan and use that call to call Richard in to dinner when he's out and about.
2. When I was a kid, my dad got 7 coyote pups and we raised them. That is where I learned to howl and I love to "talk" to the coyotes behind our house.
3. The meadowlark song is the prettiest sound of spring to me.
4. I would love to own a little cookie shop where people come in and sit in my darlingly-decorated little shop and have milk and cookies.
5. I know three different languages.
6. Rainy nights and coyotes howling sing me to sleep faster than anything.
7. I still dream of being a rodeo queen. Since I'm a little past the prime rodeo queen age, I am going to vicariously live through my little girls.

And for the grand finale, I am passing this award on to:

You all work so hard at providing such lovely blogs. Thank you!
