One More Award!

Courtney at Once Upon a Bookshelf gave me this here award a while back. The rules are to list 7 things I love and then to tag 7 people who will play along.

Things I Love:
1. My crazy but endearing cat. He's the main man in my life and I don't know what I'd do without him.
2. My Teddy Bear. His name is Teddy. Yes, I am in my 20s and still have a Teddy Bear... I got him when I had my surgery at 3 years old and he has been everywhere with me ever since.
3. Getting mail. No, not the electronic kind, but real old-fashioned snail mail.
4. This place.
5. My family. I appreciate them more and more every day that I work in the youth shelter. I never knew before how lucky I was.
6. Being from a small town. I used to hate it, but now that I really live in the city, I am glad of where I came from. I am pretty good at acting like a city person (for example, when I ride the subway and don't want people to bother me), but I don't think I'll ever truly be a city girl. I feel most at home surrounded by farmers fields and dirt roads, not by concrete sidewalks and subways.
7. Diet Pepsi. Up until recently, I was a Diet Coke girl, but I've been won over to the dark side and fallen in love with Diet Pepsi. I love the taste, and since I don't drink coffee, I need the stuff to get through my day.


And the award goes to...
1. Karen at The Transformation of Kern
2. Erin at The State That I Am In
3. Ria at & That's The Way Life Goes
4. Jess at Classy in Philadelphia
5. Lily at Lily Speak
6. Ashley at Writing to Reach You
7. Alyssa at How Lucky We Are

you are the award queen. 3/4 of my awards have come from you, haha :)

i love snail mail. there's no feeling better than when you're not expecting something and you get a letter or a little package from someone you may or may not have forgotten about. it's even better when it doesn't have a return address and you have to guess who it is by the handwriting or content.

i'm so glad i came from a smaller city than new york. the city i grew up in was 60,000 people, so pretty average in wisconsin terms. i definitely don't like the city as much as the open space, and i'm so grateful that i grew up in the midwest rather than in a concrete jungle.

Congratulations! I know what you mean about learning to appreciate your family through working with people who haven't been quite so fortunate in the family department. I totally took mine for granted until I worked with some kids with some really sad backgrounds.

And snail mail, oh man, is that ever good.
