Michelle from Full of Her Travels nominated me for the Versatile Blogger Award. Thanks, Michelle! If you’re not familiar with the award, the rules are here. Part of accepting this award is to give the award to 15 excellent blogs I follow regularly or have recently discovered. I recently discovered I didn’t have WordPress emailing me new posts for some of the blogs I would have been following regularly if I’d done it correctly, so I’m still going to include those. While it’s not a requirement, I elected to only nominate blogs that haven’t already earned the award (as far as I could see) and to list the blogs I nominated in the order I followed them (as closely as I could).
The other part of accepting the award is to tell the person who nominated me seven things about myself. Since I’ll be doing that in this post below the nominations, anyone who cares to can find out the same things. Some of the sentences technically tell more than one ‘thing’ so you really get about a dozen things.

Seven Things About Me
1. I recently started a job working with kids, which seems to surprise some who know my husband and I don’t have kids and don’t plan to.
2. I was unemployed for close to a year before starting this job, which is the only time I’ve been unemployed in my adult life.
3. I am pretty independent, so it was a big leap for me to quit my job to move to Georgia (and then Germany) not knowing when I would be able to have my own income again.
4. When we moved to Germany, it was the first time I had ever been to Europe.
5. Actually, it was the first time I’ve ever even been to a country that required a passport to get there because when I went to Canada, Mexico, and the Bahamas I only needed a birth certificate.
6. I still don’t have a tourist passport, and need to get one because there are a lot of places I want to see while we’re in Europe and the no-fee passport is just for Germany.
7. I’m currently working on getting into graduate school to pursue a Master of Arts in counseling psychology.
Thanks again for giving me this award, Michelle, and thanks to my followers for reading. I hope you enjoy the blogs and my seven things.
