Kreativ Blogger Award

I am so excited!
I have been presented a very lovely Award, the Kreativ Blogger Award, not just once, NO! Twice!
The lovely ladies who were so kind to nominate me are

I visit their blogs every day if I can, they are both very creative with their camera, love that!
Thank you so much to both of you!


Now, here are the 7 STEPS that should be followed after accepting this award:
1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Name 7 things about yourself that people might find interesting.
5. Nominate 7 Kreativ Bloggers.
6. Post links to the 7 blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs, letting them know they have been nominated.

Now it's time to reveal 7 "secrets" (things you might not know or find interesting) about myself... ;-)

1. My favourite color is blue

2. I don't like beer and wine and can't stand the feeling of having alcohol in my system

3. I was smoking for 10 years, of course I tried several times to quit... didn't succeed.
BUT I always promised myself when I would get the chance to visit the US I would quit right away.
I borded the plane to Dallas/TX Dec. 09 1997, I smoked my last Cigarette that day on the airport in Vienna... :))
It wasn't always easy, even years later I kept wondering about how it would be to smoke just one cigarette at least once or twice a year...
2006 I was in the US again, I finally took the opportunity to taste that one Cig. again, I needed to know if I would still like it... so I smoked the cigarette - and it was terrible.
Since that day I have had no longing whatsoever. :)) (Thanks Caroline for the Cigarette! )

4. Hasi says I am a very good cook :))

5. I don't like to be in Cities and big crowds, I prefer the countryside and peace and quiet.

6. I grew up on a farm in Austria, after school I took a 4 year job training in housekeeping and farming. Later I worked as a housemaid, then I was a trail guide for horseback riding vacations, went to the US for 9 months to become a reining trainer and fulfill a lifelong dream. After that I worked different jobs in Austria and the Netherlands. The last couple of years I worked as a truck driver and since 2006 I am also a certified equine massage therapist.

7. I need at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep to feel 100% and I get very grumpy when I'm hungry.
