Soartful Challenges is singing a Cole Porter song this weekend. My favorite version is by Nat King Cole and so that's what I've been listening to as I created my "I love Paris" LO this week.
I have to give a big shout out to MissFroo7h
for the awesome Eiffel Tower brushes!
I've never been to Paris, except during Karen and Tamara's Paris In July extravaganza three months ago (like in July, duh). Which brings me to a secomd item I would like to mention.
has kindly given me a
Cherry On Top Award!
How cool is that?
The rules of this award require me to:
1. Answer this question:
If you had the chance to go back and change one thing in your life, would you, and what would it be?
Well, usually I would say there is nothing in my life I would change, as it's all brought me to where I am today. BUT, lately, I've been kind of instrospective and thinking about the kind of person I am and have been over the years. I'm an introvert. And I like my solitude. A lot. Always have. It requires great effort on my part to be sociable or even to participate in anything which requires me to be in a group. Now, I like who I am, for the most part. BUT lately, I've been thinking that I need to be a bit more outgoing, smile a bit more, be friendlier, more thoughtful towards the people I am with when I'm with them.
So I am trying to do that.
What would I change? Maybe I wish a little bit that I'd come to this conclusion earlier in my life, and maybe been a more pleasant person, maybe smiled more. Then maybe it would be easier now.
It's hard to teach an old dog new tricks, ya know?
But I guess anything is possible.
2.Award the Cherry on Top Award to 6 people.
OK, here are my thoughts on this:
I think that a cherry on top of a sundae (or cupcake or anything sweet and lovely) is the "piece de resistance", that extra special wondrous gift that finishes off something that would be delightful even if it didn't have a cherry on top.
And so, the people I would like to pass this on to are:
These are some folks who have supported, encourage and inspired me.
Thanks Tamara for taking the time to send me this award. It's the gifts like this that make me thankful I started this silly ol' blog.
If you've read all of this, congratulations and thanks!
But, I promise.
And that's all you're going to get out of me today. :-)
