One Lovely Blog

There is nothing quite like waking up from a 3-hour long nap after a discouraging doctor’s appointment to discover that…

I have been nominated for the “One Lovely Blog Award” !!

Thank you Mitch Teemley  for nominating me. Mitch writes some laugh-out-loud hilarious posts. Go check them out!



To Accept:

  1. Thank the person who nominated me and include a link to their blog (see above)
  2. List the rules and display the award (You’re looking at them)
  3. Add 7 facts about me (see below)
  4. Nominate 15 other bloggers (also below)
  5. Leave a comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated (and then have a super blog party together)


Seven Facts About Me (that you probably did not know):

  1. I have no appendix (got that baby removed back in high school)
  2. My maternal grandmother’s father’s life was saved by Amelia Earhart (He was about to fly out of a small airport in College Park, MD when Earhart walked by and told him that one of his wing bolts was dangerously loose. Well thanks for catching that, Amelia!)
  3. I am 99% positive I am related to Czech composer Antonin Dvorak (this would go to explain how I became such a musical genius).
  4. I will eat just about anything… except mayonnaise. Ick! I have just never been able to stomach the off-white gook. 
  5. If I could add one more hobby to my list right now, it would be ballet dance. I regret quitting ballet classes in my childhood, as dance just seems to be a natural part of who I am. However, perhaps I never would have met my passion for orchestral music if I had continued seriously with ballet.
  6. I rarely listen to the music of “today.” I listen to a wide variety of genres, but you are most likely to spot me listening to classic rock or some good old romantic classical composer like Rimsky-Korsakov.
  7. I never would have thought that this blog would become such a gift to me. I am so grateful for this writing outlet as well as the community it provides!


My Fifteen Nominees (an assortment of refreshing blogs covering poetry, photography, theology, and/or generally enjoyable ramblings about life):

  1. Rebecca Burtram 
  2. Poesy plus Polemics
  3. Warrior Freya
  4. Alpha//Whiskey//Foxtrot
  5. bloginhotpants 
  6. Ordinary Handsome 
  7. Such Small Hands 
  8. O at the Edges 
  9. Geo Sans 
  10. Chinhooipescatarian

Goodnight, fellow lovely bloggers!

Peace, Tanya

  1. Congratulations, Tanya. keep up your amusing and courageous standards. I hope that one day you will dance again. I am honoured that you should nominate me, but I am afraid I cannot do justice to the requirements of awards. Nevertheless, I am grateful

  3. Congratulations Tanya, I also hope you will return to ballet one day. Thank you so much for nominating me for the award. I will have to scratch my head and think very deeply to come up with 7 things the readers on WordPress do not know about me (apart from the things I am intentionally keeping secret) as I have spilled my guts out in which could equally be described as!
