  8. Congrats on your nomination. The scariest thing about skydiving is that moment when your tandem partner counts to three and then you are out of the plane. After that you know that nothing is in your hands anymore. It is so peaceful gliding down.

  9. Congrats on your award. I got one awhile back but decided I wouldn't work it until the a-z was over, as I already had my posts written and scheduled.


  10. I have to agree with Sandy, I love this idea but it will have to wait till I get done with the A-Z. This past week I did not manage much visiting so I have to get caught back up.

    Thanks for sharing about yourself you sound like an interesting person. You should get a bike and go riding. I love riding mine something about it causes my mind to work faster. There is something exhilarating about it.

    Happy A-Zing,

  11. Congratulations on your Liebster Award :) I've been nominated before, and it's great fun. The Shawshank Redemption is my favourite movie too, but I can only ever watch it once because it so sad.

  12. Congratulations Stephanie on your Liebster award. I can see it is well deserved. It is such a fun way to get to know folks and I love the way you incorporated it into the A to Z challenge. YOu are one lucky lady to never have had an ear infection. I wonder if that means something about how healthy you are. Great post. God bless, Maria at Delight Directed Living
