The Versatile Blogger Award

What a Fantastic Surprise! I was given The Versatile Blogger Award by a blog I just discovered: Chocolate  Drool and Kisses.  She hosts a linky party called Sharing Mondays.  It is a beautiful blog and a great name! Anything with the word chocolate in it makes it better!!! (The Chocolate Muffin Tree)

First here are 7 things that you may not know about me:

1.  I am the youngest child in a family with 4 children.
2.  I met my husband the first day of college.
3.  I was an Elementary Art Educator for several years.
4.  I learned how to drive in a Chartreuse VW Bus!!! (Van)
5.  I met Christian Slater and Martha Plimpton (Actors) because of an art award that I won in HS.
6.  I had ducks as pets in suburbia. (at one time 4 of them)
7.  I met my best girlfriend when I was 7 years old and we are still best of friends!

Now to the 15 bloggers that I feel are worth such an Award:

To accept the award,  there are several steps:

-Thank the person who gave you the award and link them back to your post.

-Tell us seven things about yourself.

-Award fifteen recently discovered bloggers (tried my best....just started blogging 2 months ago!)

-Contact these bloggers and let them know they've received their award.
