I'd like to thank the Academy...

And I'd also like to thank Ashley from A Hasty Life for passing on this lovely award to little ol' me.

Instead of accepting this award with a speech, the rules state that I must share seven things about myself, then bestow the award onto 15 more bloggers.

7 things you were dying to know about me:

1. My parents are missionaries in France. We moved there when I was seven back in 1989 (just to save you the math, that makes me 28). They still live there and I love to visit as often as I can! 

2. I've been married for 8 years to The Best Guy in the World. We have three cats and a dog :).

3. I teach first graders who are deaf/hard-of-hearing. This doesn't involve any sign language: they all wear either hearing aids or cochlear implants and my job is language and reading remediation!

4. I love to shop at thrift stores!

5. I could eat ice cream for every meal of the day.

6. I drink black tea every morning. I used to drink coffee, but I was making it so strong that it was starting to give me headaches. And what's the point of drinking coffee if it doesn't look like mud?

7. This is what I look like:

And now, to spread the love to 15 other stylish bloggers:
