Versatile Blogger Award and some INSPIRATION!

Wow!!! Thank you Haley, at Following Optimism! She nominated me for the Versatile Blogger award--I am so pleased!!

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave it to you.
Thank you Haley.

2. Share 7 things about myself.
-I met my husband when I was backpacking through Europe.
-I played the piano and had one put in my room my first year of teaching. Needless to say, I had it moved out by January because there was never time to play it (Did I think it was Leave it to Beaver days or what?!)
-I have been living like a gypsy for many years now and I CANNOT wait to settle in a bit (soon!) and decorate/organize our flat (apartment) and maintain a routine that now excludes the army!
-I got completely hooked into yoga about 18 months ago (soooo good for my bad back and anxious mind!)
-I hate it when people don't follow the rules! (speeding when driving, lying, cheating, etc) This really gets under my skin---why do some people think rules don't apply to them?
-my mom is my everything.......she is everything that is good and sweet in this world. I look up to her tremendously and tear up when I think about the wonderful influence she has had on me.
-my dream job would be to work on a documentary that compares/contrasts school systems around the world (my 2 favorites: different cultures & education!)

3. Pass this award on to 15 other bloggers who deserve such a great award!

A Teacher and a Blog

I would love to add more, but this rickety, ancient computer is going so slow and keeps shutting down!

So I will end with a blog that I am O-B-S-S-E-S-S-E-D with and share some pins from her site:

And, in a word, I desribe her classroom as heaven.

I'm off to bed finally! Have a great weekend!

I so agree about rules. Sometimes I have to bite my tongue. :) By the way, Amsterdam or Berlin?

Forever in First
