My First Award!


I logged on for the first time in a couple of days and was extremely surprised to find that I had been given and award from Beautiful Dreamer!  Thanks Beautiful Dreamer; I really love your blog, and it's an honor that you think so highly of mine. Dreaming Beauty:

I started this blog in mid-October, mainly because I felt like there wasn't anyone in my life who I could really trust enough to share these feelings with.  This blog has been such an escape for me.  I have begun to feel so much better now that I am able to share everything with others, and know that there are people who feel the way I do, or understand what I'm going through.  Thank you to everyone who reads my blog!

The rules of this award are as follows:

1. Thank the person who gave it to you

2. Copy award

3. Post it in your blog

4. Tell us 7 things that your readers don't know

5. Link 7 new bloggers as recipients

6. Notify winners of award with comment on their blog

7. Keep being awesome!

So here it goes:
7 things you don't know about me:

1. I am extremely shy

2. I love to sing, but only in my car when no one is around to hear

3. I am not afraid of very many things, but my biggest fear is of miller moths

4. I can't function in the morning without at least two cups of coffee

5. I play basketball (and find it to be almost as therapeutic as writing)

6. I love to travel

7. When I'm feeling scared and alone, the only thing that comforts me is writing

And now, for the 7 bloggers who I am going to pass this award on to:

1. The Final Request blog at

2. The Musings of Ug blog at

3. Unknown Destination blog at

4. My Severed Soul blog at

5. What a Girl Wants at

6. Lessons From The One Who Learns blog at

7. Reasons to Forget blog at

Congratulations to all, and thanks to everyone who is reading my blog, with a special thanks to Beautiful Dreamer!


I would also like to thank Robyn at, who just presented me with this same award.  Thank you so much!


  1. Hi there at Rainy Days. I just discovered your blog. I didn't realize you'd just been given the same award (quite a flimsy bouquet of flowers) that I decided to give you. So, let me just say, I really appreciate your brutal honesty. It's truly beautiful.
    Keep blogging.

  2. Thank you for the award! And congrats to you! =)
