Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award

I don't usually participate in blog awards, but thought this one might be fun. Virginia Tenery nominated me for the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award, so thank you very much Virginia!  

*Rules for this award: thank the person who nominated you, nominate ten worthy blogs, and tell your readers seven things they might not know about you.

Seven things you might not know about me:
  1. I sold Princess House Crystal when I was a Junior in High School.
  2. I showed Hampshire hogs in 4-H at the county fair. 
  3. I watched our home burn down at the age of 15 in a robe and bare feet in the middle of December. 
  4. I jumped off a runaway horse and broke my arm and wrist when I was a Freshman in High School.  
  5. I taught beginning piano lessons for eleven years, teaching all three of our daughters to play as well as many children from school.
  6. I was an avid fan of Days of Our Lives for 40 years. My parents used to watch it during their lunch break on the farm, so I became hooked on the soap opera at a very young age. 
  7. I began dating a high school classmate after celebrating our 5th year high school reunion. We'll celebrate twenty-two years of wedded bliss on February 14th!
