Awards and Inspiration

I feel so lucky! I was given three awards last week. Now it's time to pass them on.

Abby Annis was kind enough to pass on the Sunshine Award. Thanks, Abby. You should check out her blog if you haven't. I'm supposed to share five things about myself. I'm trying to think of five things I haven't already shared on previous lists. I think I'll share five of my favorite things:
1. My favorite day of the week: Wednesday--womens choir practice!
2. My favorite national park: Capitol Reef
3. My favorite shake flavor: Strawberry. Mmmmmm.
4. My favorite indulgence: Ice cream and Ruffles potato chips
5. My favorite mountain: Mt. Loafer (see the view above). It used to be Timpanogos, but now I love Loafer better.
I pass this lovely award on to:
Ali Cross
Elizabeth Mueller
Karen Akins
Kimberly Franklin
Emily Griffin

Nicole Green of Chapters passed the Creative Writer award to me. Thanks, Nicole! Go check out her blog too.
I've already made up lies about myself. If you missed them, read them here, and if you want to know the truth, find it here. I've already passed this one on, so I won't do that again.

Aubrie Dionne of Flutey Words was kind enough to pass on the Prolific Blogger award to me. If you read her blog, sometimes she posts videos of her flute concerts. Awesome! (Plus a lot of great writing stuff too.) Here are the rules:

1. Every winner of the Prolific Blogger Award has to pass on this award to at least seven other deserving prolific bloggers. Spread some love!
2. Each Prolific Blogger must link to the blog from which he/she has received the award. (see above).
3. Every Prolific Blogger must link back to this post, which explains the origins and motivation for the award.
4. Every Prolific Blogger must visit this post and add his/her name in the Mr. Linky, so that we can get to know the other winners.
I'd like to pass this one on to:
Kasie West
Cynde Hammond
Stephanie McGee
Mary Campbell
Danyelle Leafty
C.K. Bryant

And now (if your still with me) for some inspiration. Check out this awesome post at a blog I just discovered. Charlie is a musician, not a writer, but his thoughts totally apply to all of us creative types.

Congrats on the awards. I love that you like Loafer better than Timp. They are so very different, aren't they?

And I love Capitol Reef too, though I don't think I could decide on a favorite. :o)
