Stylish Blogger Award

 I am honored to have received the Stylish Blogger Award from Lori MalibuItalian!

A few words about Lori: First of all, thank you Lori for honoring me with this award. Lori is absolutely the sweetest person on the internet! She always has a heartfelt kind word for everyone! And her designs are just awesome and creative! She is truly an inspiration to me.

By accepting this award, we agreed to the four "rules" that follow:

1. Thank and link back the person that awarded it to you
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pay it forward to 15 recently discovered great Bloggers
4. Contact those Bloggers and tell them about their blog award

1. Thank and link back the person that awarded it to you:
Thank you Lori! Visit her wonderful blog HERE

2. Share 7 things about yourself:

1. I love to take  pictures and I am working on achieving a certificate in Nature Photography
2. After I take the pictures, I love to Zazzle and make $$ with them! The best of both worlds. I never thought I could get paid for a hobby that I love.
3. I work out like a fiend at the gym everyday. I get very crabby if I don't.
4. When I am not working out at the gym, I am practicing martial arts. I am a 2nd degree black belt in taekwondo.
5. My favorite color is red. I love red! If I could have everything in red, I would.
6. I strongly believe that everything happens for a reason. There are no accidents or coincidences. It all was meant to happen this way-good and bad.
7.  This is my favorite quote: "Once you have started seeing the beauty of life, ugliness starts disappearing. If you start looking at life with joy, sadness starts disappearing. You cannot have heaven and hell together, you can have only one. It is your choice." ~Osho
