One Lovely Blog Award

This award along with the whole blogging culture is all kinda new and still foreign to me, but I’m doing my best to do it all proper, and in a way that keeps you reading my blog. If I’m forgetting anything or need to do something different please feel free to drop me a line and give me your feedback, I always love hearing from my readers!

I would like to gratefully and graciously thank Jesica of http://www.runonorganic.wordpress.com for the “One Lovely Blog Award” thank-you Jesica.

Rules of acceptance:

-Thank the person/s who nominated you and link back to them in your post.

-Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself, and nominate up to fifteen bloggers you admire.

-Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know you have nominated them, and link back to them.

Here are seven things you may not yet know about me:

1. I got into the whole blogging world by reading blogs that my wife reads and had recommended to me. ย The two blogs that I initially read that really helped inspire me to start blogging myself and still to this day are easily two of my favorites are: Jenn Korducki Krenn and her brilliant blog “Eating Bender”, and Kath Younger at “Kath Eats Real Food”.

2. I am a certified chef. ย I graduated from Southern Alberta Institute of Technology in 2008.

3. Favorite pro sports teams are: Los Angeles Lakers, Green Bay Packers, and Boston Red Sox.

4. The first time I saw my wife Ashley 10 years ago I knew that she was the woman I wanted to marry, we started dating each other 5.5 years later, and got married 4 months ago.

5. I love all genres of music, but my all time favorite musical artist is U2.

6. I have had 6 operations in the last 16 years on my right knee to repair torn ligaments and to clean out bone fragments.

7. This upcoming Sunday (July 8) I will be running my first ever half marathon, and I’m both extremely excited and terrified at the same time.

Here are twelve PHENOMENAL blogs I follow (and I highly recommend you do the same) we all will benefit greatly from their experiences, and zest for life.
