First Awards

I've been awarded by the very kind Jo from Secret Garden Cottage. Thank you sweet Jo. My first awards. Wow. Really don't think I deserve these when I see all the talent out there in blogland. Really I'm just a great copier not creative or anything. No original ideas here.
1. Thank the one who passed the award on to me:  Check.

2. Sum up your blogging philosophy, motivation, and experience in five words (A Blog With Substance):  Friendship, Inspiration, Motivation, Love Writing

3.  Tell seven things about yourself (Versatile Blogger):
1. Served 3 years in the United States Army
2. Met my husband while serving in the Army
3. Homeschooled my kids for 12 years
4. I love historical reenactment - though I belong to no such group currently
5. Would love to do something creative with my life - like own a shop, bed and breakfast, whatever
6. I love to cook though you wouldn't know it because I never seem to share any recipes
7. I have a huge fear of heights - why I don't like to fly

4. Pass these awards on to 10 other bloggers.  I'm passing this award on to the following people because you have touched my life in some way. I am inspired daily to get up and get going because of people like these in blogland. Thank you all so much for contributing of yourselves in so many big and little ways.
1. I would you choose you Jo, but here goes
2. Kathy of Kate's Place
3. Ann Marie of La Maison La Fortune
4. Missy of My Cottage Charm

Hi Amanda,
Sorry it's taken me so long to come visit. It's been a hectic week this week, with the kids starting back to school. We're still trying to get back in the groove of things. ;o)
I loved hearing your seven things. It seems we have the military in common (though I didn't enjoy it), and I have a fear of heights and flying, too! ;o)
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs ~ Jo
