The Versatile Blogger Award

I have been given the Versatile Blogger Award by Krista at I Take the Pen. Yay!!!!
Now, I get to pass it on!

Here are the rules:

Thank the person who nominated you. Tell 7 things about yourself, so that your readers may learn more about you, and nominate 15 other newly discovered bloggers, then let them know you nominated them.

7 Things About Me

1. Tennis is my favorite sport! I am glued to my TV during any of the grand slams, and any time I can catch a Federer, Clisters, or Isner match. I also enjoy playing, quite badly, every chance I get.

My Boy Duke
2. A little over a year ago I moved to the beach, and this past summer I started paddle boarding. It is so much fun being out far enough to see the awesome creatures swimming around in the ocean up close. But, not too close!

3. I have a Boston Terrier, named Duke. He is firmly of the mind that he is in charge of our relationship, all 16 lbs of him, but pull out a tasty treat and he’ll do just about anything.

4. I get antsy when it’s too quiet. My favorite background noise is Ray Lamontagne, Andy McKee, Adele, and Grace Potter, but I will listen to almost anything with a tune. Singing loudly in my car, pretending I can carry my own tune, makes me look forward to driving to work.

5. This past March, I finished my first novel. It’s a romantic suspense set on Amelia Island, and I am constantly going back to edit it and thinking about editing it. Does this feeling ever go away?

6. I love receiving cards. I look forward to the card just as much as the gift on holidays. There is a box in the top of my closet filled with every card I’ve ever been given, organized by occasion. Because of my serious addiction, I spend hours in the greeting card aisle each time I get the chance to give a card to someone.

7. Earlier this year I took up quilting. Prior to that, I had never so much as sewn a button on a shirt. Now, I’m addicted to finding new patterns and fabrics.
