Know what? I’m versatile and creative. True story.

Hello All!

Last week the fabulous Gretchen awarded me the Versatile Blogger Award.  And yesterday she awarded me the Kreativ Blogger Award.   As part of the awards, I have to share some things about myself (I think I’m up to 17 – we’ll see if I make it) and award them to 10 other bloggers.




Okay, first up.  Random Gracey-facts:

1.      I’m of mixed heritage – my father is black and my mother is white.
2.      I come from a large family – four brothers, two sisters, one step brother and one step sister.
3.      I have always lived on the West Coast; in Oregon, Washington or California except for a brief stint in Nashville.
4.      I ran track and cross country from kindergarten through college and I miss running a lot less than I thought I would.
5.      I can’t sew, but I do it anyways.
6.      I’m not very patient (which is one of the reasons I can’t sew).
7.      I love food, but I don’t like cooking.
8.      My parents were hippies, hence my awesome name.
9.      I hate being told what to do.
10.  I am somehow surprised to find myself in my mid-thirties and never married.
11.  I think that it’s weird that I’m surprised about being single.
12.  I watch and read sci-fi, but only because I’m scared of zombies, aliens, robots and the future and want to know what to watch out for.
13.  I love books that make me cry and then I never read them again because they made me cry.
14.  I don’t have a favorite color.

Sorry, all, I can’t think of anything more.  But, I’d say 14 items is plenty to know about me.  It’s pretty much everything anyway.

Now for ten versatile, creative (sorry, I can’t keep spelling it with a k) bloggers:

1.      Rose of Well Curated
2.      Emily at Bellishment
3.      Fabienne of The House in the Clouds
4.      Steffy of Steffy’s Pros and Cons
5.      Claire of Spinning Threads
6.      Linda of Little Tin Soldier
7.      Linley at Dwelling and Telling
8.      Katie at Interrobangs Anonymous
9.      Dotty at Dash Dot Dotty
10.  Marella at Me Myself and My Closet

All of these bloggers are absolutely wonderful and if they aren’t blogs you already read, check them out.

Thank you again, Gretchen!

  4. @Katie - No jest, ma'am! I can't wait to read your made up "facts".

    @Allison - I wish I could sew too, but I REALLY don't have the patience for it.

    @GretchTM - thank you, again, Gretchen! And zombies are the worst!!

  5. I had no idea that you were in your thirties (I hope that's ok for me to say). I thought you were in your mid twenties! I ran track and cross country too, but it was before Title IX, and the university I went to, didn't have women sports when I went in (I started a women's track club anyway with a couple of other girls, and we drove around to invitationals in my VW van :-)

  6. Kari - of course that's okay for you to say. Now, if you'd said you thought I was in my mid-forties, we might have to fight. ;-)

    I think it's so awesome you started a women's track club. I love the idea of you all going to the invitationals together in a VW van.
