I’ve been nominated

I woke up to the lovely surprise of being nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award by Daily Gluttony. It’s very cool to know that fellow bloggers like my blog. It makes me feel like I’m part of a really cool club.

So, to comply with the awards here are seven random facts about me:

  1. I love Tuscany.
  2. I have three daughters aged twenty seven.
  3. I am addicted to Downton Abby.
  4. My dog’s name is Fynnigan.
  5. My husband and I own a two hundred year old farm.
  6. I struggle to not eat pasta every day.
  7. I am a coffee snob.

One of the rules of being nominated is to list fifteen blogs that inspire me.Trying to narrow my list of favorite blogs to fifteen is not easy so, in no particular order, here goes…

And finally, the rules for The Versatile Blogger Award are as follows:

  1. Visit and thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Acknowledge that blogger on your blog and a link back.
  3. Share 7 random interesting things about yourself.
  4. Nominate up to 15 bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award, provide a link to their blogs in your post, and notify them on their blogs.
  5. Copy and paste the award somewhere on your blog.

Hope you’ll visit these sites. I LOVE them!

Thanks for reading.

  • Thank you so much for the nomination Michelle!! And congrats on yours of course! You completely deserve it! Yours is one of those blogs that I always enjoy reading and as you already know, I love your recipes! 🙂 Btw, how cool is it that you have triplet daughters ( I assume that’s why they are all aged 27)?

    • I should have been clearer but it’s fun to say I have three girls the same age. I had twins and Ralph had a daughter when we met…
