I Received A Very Nice Surprise – “One Lovely Blog Award”

I received a very nice surprise.  I was nominated for the "One Lovely Blog Award" by Valerie Hughes author of "Genealogy With Valerie".

Thank you Valerie, I am honored and humbled to be nominated by you.  Valerie 's blog is amazing, interesting and very informative.  She is also the author of "Genealogy: Your Family History, Doing It Right The First Time" and "Planning Your Genealogy Research Trip" both are great books.

Here are the rules for this award:
   1.  Thank the person who nominated you and link to that blog.
   2.  Share seven things about yourself.
   3.  Nominate 15 bloggers you admire (or as many as you can think of!)
   4.  Contact your bloggers, let them know that you've tagged them for the One Lovely Blog  Award.

Seven Things About Me:
    1.  I am an only child.
    2.  I was named after my mother's high school friend.
    3.  I do not have a middle name (you'd be surprise how many people think I'm kidding).
    4.  I have insomnia and usually sleep 2-4 a night (sometimes less).
    5.  I love to sing and dance (even though my family says I lack rhythm).
    6.  I love old classic movies.  I prefer the black and white version not colorized.
    7.  My favorite sports to play are tennis, volleyball and softball (in that order).

20 Bloggers I Admire:
There are so many awesome genealogy blogs out there that it was really hard to choose just 20.
Here is my list (in no particular order):
    1.  Ancient Echos From The Past by Xzanthia Zuber

For those on my list, if you have already been nominated I'm pretty certain that you don't have to nominate an group.  There are so many more wonderful bloggers out there whose work I admire.  I have learned so much from the more experienced members of the genealogy community.  I enjoy our interactions and appreciate their support.
