So, no big deal but…I won an award! The lovely Ailene over at Incurable Wanderlust (where she posts beautiful photos of her adventures and tips to be a savvy traveler like herself) nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks Ailene!

Forthwith, my duties as an award winner are as follows:

  1. Thank the person who gave you this award. (Thanks again!)
  2. Include a link to their blog. (see above!)
  3. Nominate 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. (Okay, so I only picked 7 blogs to nominate — 7 blogs and 7 things about me just seems more organized to me)
  4. Link your nominees’ blog and tell them 7 things about yourself. (see below!)

Since I’m new in town, everyone below falls into the “recently discovered” category, but y’all are really starting to grow on me!

  1. Awaken and Explore
  2. BennaKim
  3. Dark Roast
  4. My Perceived Reality
  5. Not With Haste
  6. Souls of Wit
  7. Typing and Thinking

7 things about me: 

  1. I’m afraid of moths and butterflies
  2. My favorite german author is Thomas Mann
  3. One of my most prized possessions is a painting of my cat that my boyfriend had commissioned for my birthday last year.
  4. I think Hall and Oates is the perfect cure for any bad day.
  5. I CANNOT WAIT for the new season of Twin Peaks to come out next year
  6. I’m currently plotting my escape from the 9-5 work life
  7. In my limited travels, the one site that has made the greatest impression on me is Vigeland Park in Oslo, Norway.
