I'm going to get a big head. It's ok, it makes my day to see someone finds me a worthy recipient.
As always awards come with instructions:
1. First, thank and link back to the person that gave the award.
2. Answer the 10 survey questions
3. Pass the award along to other bloggers whom you think are fantastic.
Many thanks to Barbara over at Notes from the Second Half for this award. If you don't read her blog you probably should. She writes from the heart about so much. And now I want cake :)
1.If you blog anonymously, are you happy doing this? If you aren't anonymous, do you wish you started out anonymously, so that you could be anonymous now?
I've always been a person who stands by what I say.

Overachieving class clown.
8.If you close your eyes and want to visualize a very poignant moment in your life, what would you see?
I was with my father when he died. I think that's the root of a lot of my insomnia at this point.
9.Is it easy for you to share your true self in your blog, or are you more comfortable writing posts about other people and events?
I'm sort of a raw and honest person in general so I always speak my mind.
10. If you had the choice to sit down and read a book or talk on the phone, which would you do and why?
Depends on the book, who I wanted to talk to and how I was feeling.
When passing on this award there is really only one person who comes up to me when I think "utterly fantastic" and that is my friend Samantha over at She's not broken, she's just a baby. I've known Sam for almost 2 years and she's been an amazing and wonderful friend. I'm so proud of her for publicly chronicling her struggle with PPD.
