The Stylish Blogger Award

I am both humbled and honored to have been nominated for the Stylish Blogger Award this past week from these spectacular blogs:

Chattafabulous-Kim is an interior designer from Chattanooga with a great eye for a good antique!
The Enchanted Home-Tina shares her design inspiration for her dream home in stylish Locus Valley.
CasaTresChic -Tereza showcases her chic Brazilian style with a dose of great Latin music.   

 I adore reading, exploring and being inspired by an ever expanding list of fantastic blogs and cherish all the friends I have made along the way. 

Thank you Kim, Tina and Tereza for this wonderful gift!

Seven things about me-
I learned to sail last summer
My three children's names all begin with a C-Carter, Charlotte and Camille
Guilty Pleasure- red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting
Favorite color is blue (in case you couldn't tell!)
I like to drive with the music really loud
I love to travel-this summer to Lake Como
I signed up to run the NY Marathon next fall--this leaves most friends speechless as I am currently a reluctant jogger at best, but I am determined to do it!

Now the fun part. I'd like to pass this award to:

Pretty Pink Tulips
A Lovely Escape
Party Resources
Everton Terrace
Verdigris Vie

After receiving this award please pay it forward according to the rules:
Thank and link back to the person who awarded you. Share 7 things about yourself. Award ten great bloggers you admire, contact them and tell them the good news!

Have a great long weekend!

How fun! Thank you so much for the honor. I love your children's names, adore red velvet cupcakes and I have whole concerts in my car. I am so very impressed you signed up for the marathon, I don't run, not sure if I even could :) If I tried, I'm certain people would be cheering from the sidelines "run Forest run".

Hi! I was going to pass this award to you but see that a few have already beaten me to it. So well deserved. Good luck with the marathon -- I am so not a runner, but was also just pondering a similar goal. You may have just given me the little push I needed! XO

How wonderful to read your list of seven things..! I love the fact that you are going to run the Marathon! I also dream of doing it and think it would be fabulous to do a hand full of great international cities before it's time to polish the dentures and kick back on the porch!

Am your latest follower.
