Answer the questions
Tell us something you haven't previously on your blog
Award however many bloggers you think are worthy of this award

The requirements to accept this award are : 

1. Thank the person who gave you the award.   This is from the adorable Michelle at Peanut Butter and Jelly Designs

2. Tell 7 things about yourself 
  1. I hate when my house smells like boys feet.

  5. I beat Thyroid Cancer. It will be 6 years in April!

  7. My big 30th bday is in May and I want to have an 80s themed party.
3. Pass it on to 15 other bloggers & let them know. I will tag people at the end of this post.

This is just something I saw and thought it was a good message for all bloggers.

  • create, inspire, and admire rather than compete with fellow bloggers
  • be understanding of each other-- in the blogging community, as well as in the world
  • stay away from internet/blogging bullying
  • speak my opinion freely, while still being mindful of other's feelings-- be tactful.
  • make an effort--no matter how big or small the gesture, to spread kindness or joy to others
  • acknowledge that I will make mistakes, (I am only human) but remember to learn from them
  • know that at times I will post about the negative stuff in life, and maybe even some complaining (I am only human) but I will always follow up with something happy/positive too.
  • believe that this world is a good place, filled with good people.

1. Link back to the person that gave you this award: This one I just picked up from FabDiva20
2. Answer the questions below.

like to be alone to process my feelings and cool off.
5. Favorite pet.

I am generally easy going. I don't like conflicts so I go with the flow.

@ashesela I have a cavernous angioma in my brainstem. In some people it can cause siezures, but I just get the migraines so far, knock on wood. I apparently was born with it and only getting old caused it to grow and bleed and it just started causing the migraines. I get about 3-4 a week. Sucks but I am learning to deal with it.
Thanks for reading! I hope you got a pumpkin latte! They still have the flavored creamer in grocery stores. You can get the milk kind from the refrigerator section or the powder kind in the coffee aisle. It may be seasonal so stock up!
