"Beautiful Blogger Award"

Wow! I've been awarded the "Beautiful Blogger Award" from http://kindofthatgirl.blogspot.com/. She's "kind of that girl", which is good to know and follow! She has a very beautiful and inspirational blog. You don't need to have a book to read, her blog is a "page turner"! Alexandra's poem called: "To You My Love, Forgive Me" is my favorite, check it out!

For those I given an award, here are the rules:

1) Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2) Copy the award & place it on your blog.
3) Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4) Tell us 7 interesting things about yourself.
5) Nominate 7 bloggers.
6) Post links to the 7 blogs I nominate.

Here are 7 things about me, decide for yourself if it's interesting or not:

  1. I love sad and gloomy songs. You have to listen to them every time you pass by my blog. I have 39 sad and gloomy songs on my playlist, I hope it won't scare you off??

  2. I am my husband's wife, who makes me sooo happy, who's my soul mate and whom I love ENORMOUSLY!

  3. I love to travel. I've been around Europe and I think there is no better place to be then Switzerland were I lived for 10 years (OK, France and Italy too)!

  4. I can't stand sad and gloomy summers in San Francisco;

  5. I love to eat but I hate to cook. (Lucky for me my husband's cooking is amazing, it actually relaxes him);

  6. I love everything what's French: frog's legs, french cooking, Chanel, Louis de Funès, Edith Piaf (no, I don't have her on my playlist), houte couture, wine testing, joi de vivre. Oh, I can't forget about: cheese, pastries, bread, charcutrie...And of course language, which I hope not to forget.

  7. I am not a big fun of surprises. I get disappointed very easily and I don't know how to hide it. I don't have big expectations, I just don't know how to act like I am surprised!
And award goes to:
(no particular order)

  1. http://threehundredsixtyfiveloves.blogspot.com/
    I love this blog and Kate's concept of writing for 365 days about things she loves. You can really get to know someone that way very well. She has great book recommendations.
