I was so excited to get a comment from Letizia at Reading Interrupted that she nominated Global From Home for a Versatile Blogger Award! Yay! Now it is my turn to pass on the honor. But first the rules:
- Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
- Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
- Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
- Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.
- Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Letizia, THANK YOU! I also think Reading Interrupted is pretty grand and hope many more people will enjoy all you have to share.
I’ve been reading a TON of blogs lately so I have a lot of favorites but here are 15.

Seven things about me:
1. I’m often mistaken for being 16-years-old when I’m actually 30. I’m not sure if it’s because I have a baby face or because I’m the size of a 5th grader.
2. I have read Pride and Prejudice 6 times.
3. I was a professional sorority girl for two years. Yep, I worked for my sorority and traveled the U.S. doing leadership training.
4. My favorite color is navy blue.
5. I am obsessed with sending and receiving postcards.
6. I start wrapping Christmas presents in October. It is one of my top 10 favorite past-times.
7. Even though I live in San Diego, I still go to a church in Atlanta. It’s so good Hubby and I get up every Sunday and watch NPCC online with coffee in hand.
