And with this award, I am required to share 7 random facts about me and pass along this award to 15 other blogs I love.
1) In 2010 I lived in 4 different apartments and on 3 continents! My husband was getting his MBA at an international one year program - it was amazing but what a whirlwind. We are now living in Singapore, and we even signed a one year lease - feels nice to unpack!
2) I love the Food Network. I watch it all the time, its just so calming to me!
3) I adore the fall. The cool weather, the colorful leaves, pumpkins, I am a sucker for it all.
4) I speak some Spanish, some French, and some Italian but none very well and usually a jumble of the three when I try!
5) I have a serious weakness for throw pillows. I cant stop buying them - even if there is not room for us to sit on the sofa anymore. It's my view you just can't have too many.
6) My blog is named after the maiden names of my two grandmothers who are so inspirational to me - one for her glam style and unending energy, and the other for her independent spirit and brave outlook on life, and both for the lovely link they give me to the past - I adore poring over old family photos.
7) I can always remember a color but never a number - I will easily recall the exact shade you were wearing when I met you or the tone of a fabric I saw once, but my own husband's telephone number - nope!
