This brought a smile to my face

Today I received this blog award from the very sweet, creative and innovative Sonia over at Archiving Angel.

This comes with a caveat that I share 10 things about myself and also share the blog award with 10 of my bloggy friends. Enjoy.

1- I went to a psychic party at my sister's house and was told that I would meet my soul mate. The details were that he would be in uniform and I would meet him by water. A year later, I met E in NYC and he is an Officer in the Army.
2- I used to have a radio show in college.
3- I love Big Band music and I secretly wish I could sing like Ella Fitzgerald, Rosemary Clooney or Sarah Vaughn.
4- E taught my how to play Racquetball and I pretty much beat him every time now.
5- E taught me how to ski in one day and he says that rarely happens.
6- I am an avid Kayaker. E and I enjoy going out and we always have Holly in the middle of our tandem.

7- I climbed my first mountain on our honeymoon in the Adirondacks.
8- I am good at video games...Guitar Hero, NHL Hockey and Wii Bowling (and any 80's games).
9- My family used to own horses when I was growing up in Brooklyn and I miss it terribly.
10- E says I have freak strength. I once chest pressed 135# and I leg pressed 355#

Thank you Sonia for being so thoughtful and having such lovely words to say for me to receive such a nice award. I will post it with pride and hope that I continue to inspire.
