And second, the Kreativ Blogger award:


For this award, I will tell you seven things you didn’t know about me:

1. I never make dinners without a recipe, even if I add my own little touches.
2. I’m terrified of flying in planes, but am much better by myself than with others.
3. I’m terribly shy.
4. I love turtlenecks.
5. I’d never been to Europe until my husband took me there in 2006 and we got engaged!
6. I’d never run further than a mile before 2006.
7. I dream of living on a sustainable organic farm with a vineyard so I can work and live off my own land while raising and training therapy dogs.

Thanks so much, Diana, for the awards!! And I now pass on these awards to seven lovely bloggers:

1. Lara (Thinspired)
2. Holly (The Healthy Everythingtarian)
3. Betsy (Joe+Betsy)
4. Melissa (FitnessNYC)
5. Ashley (Healthy Ashley)
6. Erica (Itzy’s Kitchen)
7. Natalie (No No 2 Yo Yo)

And speaking of Natalie, there’s still time to sign up for Project Feed Me! This is a wonderful initiative that I am proud to support. As we all celebrate the changing seasons and the upcoming holidays with parties, gifts, and great foods, it’s important to remember those who are forced to do without. I, for one, am happy to do without a luxury like an extra Larabar or pumpkin latte in order to pay for each week’s recommended item. I hope you will consider joining me, Natalie, and all the other participants!
