Thanks to Lucy at The New Northerner for nominating me for the Sunshine Award – awarded to “bloggers who are positive and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.” I love my blog to be a happy place so I’m glad she thinks so too, and although the weather is particularly non-sunny today, I wanted to share the love with my own Sunshine Award post.
Here’s what’s involved:
- Share 11 random facts about yourself

My 11 random facts:
