I've received a few awards recently and I'm long overdue in recognizing them. And many, many thanks to the beautiful ladies who sent them! If you haven't visited their blogs, be sure to stop by today!
My first award is The Cherry on Top Award. It's from both Laura Diamond AND Juanita.
The rule? Answer one question: If I had the chance to go back and change one thing in my life, would I, and what would it be?
Honestly, I've thought about this a lot over the years.
Sometimes I wish I hadn't given up that Broadway contract to get married. What would it have hurt to wait a year? But, thank heavens for hindsight. I'm glad I made the choices I did, when I did. I really wouldn't have my life any other way.
Other times I wish I'd gone to prom and my high school graduation. I skipped out on both. Most of my friends were college peers (I did early placement) so I didn't feel connected to anyone in my Senior Class. At the time it seemed like a good idea to just sit in the audience and watch everyone else graduate. To this day I still have nightmares that I didn't graduate from high school. So yeah, maybe I'd change that...
I've also received The Versatile Blogger Award from Tali
Here are seven pieces of info about me:
#1 - I've been married for 14 years. I was 20 3/4 when I met my husband (aka Ben Affleck) and we tied the knot a month before my 21st birthday. You do the math.
#2 - Daises are my favorite flowers. So when my book gets published, be sure to send me some :)
#3 - I'm addicted to perfume. My favorites: Angel by Thierry Mugler, Sexy Little Things Noir by Victorias Secret and Twilight Woods from Bath and Body Works. But I have a cabinet FULL - and by full I mean about 100 bottles - of different fragrances. Oh yes, the scent I wear is all dependant upon my outfit. They HAVE to match.
#4 - I started college at 16.
#5 - Warm baths + hot herbal tea + a good book = my favorite way of relaxing after a stressful day.
#6 - I make the best chocolate chip cookies. Ever.
#7 - Bruschetta is my favorite food. When I'm not eating chocolate, of course.
So....what about you? Any regrets? Anything you'd do differently? What are seven pieces of info that no one knows about you?
