Paying It Forward

Part of receiving The Versatile Blogger Award from Suzie Tullett is naming other blogs that should receive the award.

The criteria stated 15 blogs, but that's a lot. I don't read 15 other blogs regularly -- maybe I need to expand.
And a lot of blogs don't accept awards. So that's fine. If I nominate you and you don't accept awards then just ignore me (or leave a comment if you want).
If you do accept awards, then please accept The Versatile Blogger Award and write a post about seven random things your readers don't know about you.
Since I'm a Francophile and a writer, many of the blogs I read focus on those topics.
Frenchless in France by Linda Mathieu makes me feel like I'm in Paris with her. She's the author of a Kindele book, Secrets of a Paris Tour Guide.

du Jour by Delana is living my dream. She's a Minnesota gal who moved to southern France and writes about her adventures there. She also runs a business called Provence Rugs.

My friend Sheila writes Life's Many Colors. She's the healthiest person I know and also writes about the trials of raising children, homeschooling, art projects and rehabbing her bungalow.

My daughter Grace started a blog called Life Allons-y when she went to college and then spent fall semester in France.

Artist Sally Tharpes Rowles writes Between Here and There and spends summers in France.

Diane writes Bibliophile by the Sea reviewing books and discovering great authors.

Tongue in Cheek by Corey is all about an American woman who married a Frenchman and loves antiques. I love her photos and her American gaffes.

Book Pregnant is a new blog about some authors whose first books are getting ready to be published. They provide me lots of info about what will someday happen when I get a book deal.

At Home With Books by Alyce is, you guessed it, about reading and books. She also does a Saturday Snapshot meme once a week that draws lots of readers and great pictures.

Lucia writes On My Way 2 Work & Other Stuff. She takes gorgeous pictures of sunrises and shares my love for foreign countries.

I know this isn't 15, but these are some blogs that I enjoy and that I wanted to offer the Versatile Blogger Award.

Going Home to France

How many days since I have been home? We left December 8 our village Quillan, planning to spend Christmas and celebrate Grace's wedding ...
