Catching Fireflies

finding magic along the way

A little blog love, just when I really needed it!

Thank you so much to my fellow blogger and friend for nominating me for a Very Inspiring Blog award! πŸ™‚Β  very-inspiring-blog-award-banner-image

It is always my hope that my words will connect with someone when I click that publish button. I have found so many talented writers out here in blog-land and am honored to be thought of as one who inspires!

Of course, with every award there are rules to help pass the blog love around. I have to list seven things about myself, and then nominate and link to 15 other inspiring blogs, as well as linking back to the person who nominated me.

Hmmm…. Things about me…

1. I love to quilt. I am actually quite addicted to fabric… perhaps a blog post is in order…

2. I am a complete sap when it comes to romantic comedies – Roxanne, While You Were Sleeping, 27 Dresses, You’ve Got Mail,Β so many to list…

3.Β  I also love love love cartoon movies – Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Monsters,Inc., Tangled, – as well as the oldΒ Looney Tunes cartoons.

4. My favorite flowers are daisies and carnations. Simple and common, yes, but I love them.

5. I love opera and Broadway show tunes. Can’t help it.

6. I am addicted to books. No great surprise as a writer, but it is to the point where I may need an intervention.

7. I sing along to the elevator muzak in the grocery store. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the call out! And congrats on your win!

    • You are welcome!! Thanks for inspiring! πŸ™‚

  4. This is a lovely gesture. Thank you so much, Cheryl. Seems like you and I have a lot in common. I love those movies that you mentioned, including the cartoon movies. πŸ™‚ And I love Broadway tunes. And yes, I’m addicted to books, too! My daughter and I often fantasize about being locked inside a library. What bliss!

    • I know! To me being quarantined at home sounds like a great vacation! So many many books and not nearly enough hours in the day. πŸ™‚

  5. 27 Dresses, You’ve Got Mail and Tangled are some of my absolute favourite movies. I can watch them over and over without getting bored!
    Congrats on the award, and thank you again! Unfortunately I’ve already received this one, but I appreciate the thought. πŸ˜€

    • I realized you had probably received most of them already – but another shout out never hurt! πŸ™‚

  6. While You Were Sleeping is such an underrated movie. (And I also sing in grocery stores.) Thanks for the love!

    • I think singing in the grocery store helps make the tedious task go faster and also makes people steer clear of you because they think you might be a little off… both good things! πŸ™‚

  7. Thanks for including me, Cheryl. That was lovely.


  8. Thanks so much, Cheryl!! You rock! I don’t quilt, but I do love fabric…I often buy fabric with nothing particular in mind, just that I love it! Of course that leads to a huge stash…gonna have to do something about that some day~

    • So nice to know there are others out there with a huge stash of fabric and no particular project in mind. πŸ™‚ I did not always quilt, but I took a handquilting class once because it was something my grandma used to do and I had never sewn much, and I am addicted to hand-piecing now. Very therapeutic!
