Yesterday I attended a fundraiser for Young Life. The event was at an open-air pavilion at one of the many camps located here in the Texas Hill Country. The weather was perfect, and the pavilion was between a pond and the river. It was catered by Acapulco Mexican Restaurant, but I still managed to stay within my food range - fajita meat, one tortilla, beans, guacamole, lots and lots of salsa and pico. No chips, no rice, no cheese, just one tortilla, no dessert. No regrets. It was good, and I enjoyed what I had.
Also, I got my first blogger award! Thanks to Becky at My Walk From Flab to Fab for the "A Blog With Substance" award. I'm so excited and so honored! Becky puts it all out there and is very open with sharing her struggles and successes. Check her out, and let her know I sent you to visit.
According to Becky, upon receiving the award, I must:
1. Explain my blogging philosophy, motivation and experience in five words.
2. Give the award to ten other bloggers.
Part I - Explaining My Blogging Philosophy, Motivation and Experience in Five Words
Like others, I wondered how in the world I could do this in just give words. Ask me again in a month, and I'll probably have a different answer. But for now, five words that explain my blogging philosophy, motivation and experience would be this: Being open grows my soul.
Part II - Awarding 10 Other Bloggers
I'm still quite new to the blogging community, so I had a really hard time with this. I don't really know all the etiquette of the blog awards, so I'm going to offer the award privately and will post the recipients after they reply.
And since Becky said it so beautifully, I'm going to quote her: "Thank you to all of you bloggers who don't settle for what yesteryear had to offer. Thank you for creating tomorrow anew and inspiring me and so many others to do the same."
