versatile blogger award!

Marivic from define1lady and Laura from Laura-Bear graciously recognized me for the Versatile Blogger Award.
It is always very exciting to be recognized for the work you do everyday.
Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me! I truly appreciate it and I enjoy very much reading your blogs!

In order to accept the award, I have to tell you seven things about myself that you don’t already know. Then, I have to pass this on to seven bloggers that I think are great.


1. Thank and link back to who gave you the award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass it along to 7 blogs you've recently discovered and enjoy
4. Leave your recipients a note, telling them about the award.

Seven facts about me:

1. I love to read. On my bedside table these days: Anthony Bourdain's "Kitchen Confidential".
2. I have lived away from home {Costa Rica} for 20 years and I miss my family terribly... especially now that I have two wonderful nephews.
3. I am dyslexic... this means that helping my children with their math homework is an almost impossible task for me.
4. There is nothing I enjoy better than baking. It is a way of relaxing for me.
5. I am learning to meditate. Trying to make it a daily routine, but it is still hard to wake up early in the morning to train my mind to be still.
6. I did not like to have pets at home until we got our dog Russell. I am absolutely in love with him now.
7. I love being a mother... maybe you know that already.

I am passing the award to:

Getting Hooked (again)
Ada and Darcy
Take-out in Couture
The Adventures of Skinny Mini Kiki
The Best is Yet to Come
From the Other Side of the Pond
Rose Street
