I’m very honoured to be nominated for this award from Emma of Coconut and Berries. I’ve been blogging for about 9 months now and am really enjoying it. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I started this blog on a cold November evening and I’m still not really sure I know what I’m in now. Whatever it is though, I love it!

So now is the time when I share 7 random things about myself and you can decide if they’re interesting or not 🙂
1.) As a child I was scared of using our oven. I have no idea why. I remember helping my mom bake and refusing to put something in the oven or take it out of the oven. Thankfully my mom had patience and persistence with me and I eventually realized our oven was not the child eating monster I thought it was and was actually a beautiful appliance that turns mushy goo into fluffy cake.
2.) I work full time as a Forensic Social Worker and absolutely adore the work I do. I have met some of the most amazing and resilient people and can’t see myself doing any other type of work, at least not on a full time basis.
3.) I have a pet fish, her name is Izzy. She is cool. I kind of really love her. A few days ago my partner and I also got a puppy. He’s a Bichon Poodle named Wayne and words cannot describe how much I adore him. I’ve never cared much about having pets but boy I sure am enjoying having some!
4.) I have an addiction to small kitchen applications, which is a bit unfortunate seeing that my kitchen is not very large. I keep the majority of these appliances on shelves in our living room because there just isn’t space anywhere else.
5.) I love knitting. I learned how to knit when I was working at a women’s shelter. One of the residents was an avid knitter and taught me one afternoon. Even though I love knitting, I really only knit scarves. I guess I enjoy the mindlessness of knitting a scarf and haven’t had the desire (yet) to venture out. My grandma was a very talented knitter and sewer. She loved making clothes for dolls and she definitely had the best dressed dolls in the neighbourhood:
6.) Speaking of crafty things, I love making things myself and I LOVE crafts. I’m that person who cuts an old pair of pants to turn them into a skirt or bag or whatever I think I need at that time. Oh and if I can use a hot glue gun on something- I am there! Boy, do I ever love hot gluing!
7.) And last but not least…I’m a Libra. I don’t really spend much energy looking into zodiac sign stuff, but I do love balance and seeing that the sign for Libra is a scale- I presume my need for balance is somehow related to being a Libra.
That’s enough about me. Now onto some amazing blogs I’ve come across.
My nominations are:
