A Grateful Award Recipient

When I turned on my computer and checked on my blog, I was amazed and honored to find out that Maureen from Eclectic Revisited chose me as one of the recipients of the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you so much, Maureen, and congratulations to you for also winning the award!
Words cannot express how truly excited I am that Maureen thought of my blog! Starting Simple Dwellings has been an amazing journey, and I love seeing so many talented design bloggers! We may have never met, but I feel as though we are all connected through design. So without further adieu, I will continue with the rules of this award, which consists of sharing seven things about myself, then passing the award to 10 wonderful bloggers!
7 Things you may not know about me!
1. I love my family with all of my heart! They are my biggest support system and the loves of my life!
2. I have loved fashion and interior design for as long as I can remember. Even at a young age, I would rearrange furniture and set up my play area as a clothing boutique store!
3. I have a degree in education and was a grade school teacher. I almost transferred to a different school to pursue a design career, but didn't. I don't regret the decision, because I loved teaching... I think I may just follow my design dream a different way.
4. When in college, I was a member of the Alpha Phi fraternity. My sorority sisters are some of my best friends to this day, and we still get together over lunch.
5. I married the love of my life, and we began our marriage living in Germany. We have so many fond memories there, including me falling for interior design!
6. Eventually, I hope to take this blog a step further, and enter the interior design world in some way! It has always been my dream!
7. To end it on a quirky note, I am a bit of an obsessive cleaner. It seems to get worse every year! Although, I'm slacking a bit now, because of my new obsession- this blog!

Now on to the really fun part! I cannot wait to pass this award to 10 stylish bloggers! They are creative, stylish, and I can't wait to see what they blog about next!

If you haven't yet, please check out these amazing blogs!

Stylish Blog recipients, please do the following on your blog:
1. Thank and link back the blogger that awarded you.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Pass the award on to 10 other stylish bloggers.
4. Contact these bloggers to let them know they have won the stylish blogger award!

This has been so much fun! Thanks for stopping by Simple Dwellings! I really appreciate it. Also, a thanks to Lulu at Belle Francaise Interiors for being my first blog follower! When her chandelier picture popped up, I began to think that I really could do this.  :-)
