Beautiful Blogger Award Nomination

In Awards on October 23, 2012 at 6:19 pm

One short week after I started my blog I received a comment that truly left me speechless! Rose Chimera’s Rantings nominated me for the Beautiful Blogger Award. I was truly touched by this little act of sentiment and kindness. Big hugs, thanks a bunch, you left a glowing smile on my face! Domestic violence is an important topic that is often swept under the rug. I’m trying to shed a little light on the subject through personal stories and experiences. I hope that others will continue to flock to my blog for emotional safety, support and a chance to share their own story!

The rules are as follows:

1. Thank the blogger who nominated you!
2. Attach the award to your site.
3. Share seven random facts about yourself.

Seven random facts about me:

-Family and friends mean the world to me
-I love costume parties
-I have been on a two week backpacking trip through mountainous peaks
-I love white water rafting and snowboarding
-My favorite magazine is Juxtapoz
-I hope to one day publish a novel
-I am a survivor of domestic violence

Here are my nominations:
(Blogging is a world of community and support, and I greatly appreciate the comments you left behind… Thank you!)

  1. I’m so glad that you’re a survivor. That you have survived.

  2. Congratulations on the nomination and the leaving. I know how hard it can be as I have had people I know in the same situation. Prayers for you and your son!

  3. Reblogged this on Free from abuse.
