Eclectic Revisited by Maureen Bower and Stylish Blogger Award

Friday, January 14, 2011

I would have written this post earlier but I was traveling and now that I am home I can get back in the swing of things.

Thank you, thank you, thank you Maureen from the blog Eclectic Revisted by Maureen Bower! I am so honored that you named me as one of ypur choices for the Stylish Blogger Award. It means a lot since I love your blog.

Maureen has beautiful style and she keeps her blog updated all the time with new inspiration. Here are some photos from today's post...

Now for 7 tidbits about me...

1. I am married to an incredible guy named Eric. We have two daughters who we are over the moon about - we are blessed.

2. We currently live in Hermosa Beach, California but are moving to New Orleans, Louisiana this April. I am excited but nervous!

3. I love interior design and always have. I "designed" my first home magazine when I was 11 and saved my allowance for a few decorating magazines. I then took them apart, placed photos where I thought looked best, and wrote my own copy. I hope to start my own interior decorating business by the middle of this year.

4. I am so thankful for the blog world - I can't believe how many talented people there are out there! It is also wonderful to write little tidbits about things I love and find out others are of like mind.

5. I am always enrolled in a Bible study - it just keeps me grounded since I tend to worry.

6. I hope to be the poster girl for living a fabulous and healthy life after Thyroid cancer. If you know someone going through it, I am happy to share my experience.

7. I am crazy for everything pale blue and pistachio green, shutters, painted wood floors, anything linen, chunky turquoise necklaces, pearl earrings, cocktail rings, cashmere scarves, down - slipcovered sofas, Spanish, New Orleans Inspired or Cape Cod architecture, crystal chandeliers, the perfect gray paint, good food, rich chocolate, red wine, sushi, quality coffee, girlfriends, and family, family, family.
