Beautiful Blogger Award

by Dian Reid-Jancic· Follow Dian on

I am both humbled and honored to have been given the Beautiful Blogger Award by a fellow Beautiful Blogger, Andrea Owen, over at Live Your Ideal Life. Thank you, Andrea!!

Now in order to claim this award, I’m to regift it to 15 blogs I love and read. So without further adieu (and in no particular order, they’re all amazingly BRILLIANT & beautiful), drumroll please….

The Naked Elephant
A Design So Vast
Unabashedly Female
Passionately Creating with Julie Jordan Scott
Alison Travels
Thoughts on Life, Death, Cancer and Family
Pleasure Notes
Angela Kelsey
Square Peg Reflections
The Barefoot Heart
Fearless Petula
Brilliant Chaos
Olive + Hope
A Beautiful Perfect Mess

In addition to regifting the award to the above beautiful blogs, I also must share with you seven things about myself in order to claim my celebrated award. As Andrea did before me, I’ll try to share with you seven things you might not already know about me (unless you know me in real life or are a stalker). Here goes:

  1. I have a tattoo on my ankle of “The Cure” which I did myself when I was just 15 years old. (Yes, I still love them, and of course I don’t regret it!)
  2. I am a two-time Home Run Derby winner, with a grand total of 16 home runs.
  3. I was once a shift manager at McDonald’s, and to this day I believe it was the best training I ever got on how to treat people well.
  4. I’ve had two cars stolen from me, one of them on my birthday, the other two days after. (I am no longer “allowed” to own an Acura as a result).
  5. I have had both of my cats since the day they were born in September of 1999.
  6. I once faked a back injury to get out of Sunday School. When I was seven.
  7. I once passed out in the middle of a “motivational” speaker’s presentation at work, and had to be rushed to the emergency room for a broken nose.

I hope all the blogs I have given this award to enjoy it. To claim your award you need to:

  • Thank the person that nominated you and link to them.
  • Pass the award on to 15 bloggers you’ve discovered and think are fantastic.
  • Contact said Blogs and let them know they’ve won!
  • State 7 things about yourself.

Don’t forget to check out the other blogs Andrea selected for this prestigious award.

Happy blogging, all!

I am so honored to be on this list! Thanks. I'm curious to see how my list comes together since I've been thinking about it for the past several days and haven't been able to come to a conclusive decision. Should be fun!
