My thanks and deep gratitude to Sheen Meem at Flowers and Breezes blog, who awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award last week. Sheen has wonderful thoughts and insights on her blog.
Thank you Sheen! and thank you to my many colleagues out in WordPress blog-land who have created such intriguing and amazing observations that add to our conversations about a wide diversity of topics. It’s been an amazing 2013!
Seven interesting facts about myself (listed in my earlier post accepting the Dragon’s Loyalty award):

- I got married on New Year’s Eve.
- I’ve changed my name three times legally.
