This award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers. There are certain criteria that must be met in order to continue sharing this award with other bloggers. It's sort of a fun chain letter that helps bloggers connect, discover new blogs, and support one another because blogging is tough business.

Here are some easy rules!

11 Random Facts About ME!
  1. I am 42 and never married.
  2. Mom to teenage daughter.
  3. Only been blogging about a year but I love it.
  4. Depression sufferer and Advocate
  5. Facebook Addict
  6. Love the ocean but not a swimmer.
  7. Love the sun but being a natural redhead I sunburn easily.
  8. Grandmother to miniature Vietnamese pot bellied female pig named "Waffles".
  9. Daughter says I am a strong, independent woman.
  10. Love the colors pink, blue, green
  11. Looking for love in all the wrong places.

These are my Questions from Jessica Dy!

  3. What is your dream car?  Anything newer than a 1994 :P
  4. What movie would you say describes your life?  It hasn't been made yet!

  7. What's the meaning behind my blog name?  Has to do with my personal journey, living with life long depression and staying positive.
  8. If you knew you wouldn't fail, what would you do?  Succeed in writing and blogging but losing weight and keeping it off is top choice.
  9. You inherited a million dollars and can't spend it on yourself, what would you do with it?  First take care of daughter and family and then donate to needy and mental health awareness
  10. Who inspires you?  Why?  My fellow bloggers, they give me hope.
