3. Pay it forward and award the Versatile Blogger to your recently discovered new bloggers.

7 Things About Me
1) My nickname (thanks to my sister):
Southern California gal with a blue jean heart”

2) I love my family… oh-so-much!

3) I find both the Pacific Ocean and Montana irresistible!

4) Photography is making my heart sing…
I hope to get better and better!
(This has been refreshingly sparked by my blogging
& by inspiration from my talented “blog-friends”!)

5) Creating Collages makes me so cheerful!

 6) I love to Write… love it… love it…love it…
and have for a very long time.

7) I do know the “Heart of Life Is Good”

(and I am so very grateful for my beautiful ever-widening
“circle of friends who defend the silver lining”)
thanks for the song, sarah

I am passing on this delightful award to:
  •  Far Away In the Sunshine link here  (Anyes is a writer doing a beautiful job of blooming right now… )
  • Cowparsley link here (I have absolutely no idea how I recently stumbled upon Cowparsley... but her collages are brilliant!)

In this treasured place of blogging, I feel like I am coming home to a community that perfectly understands the joy of what it feels like to open up your blog page and dashboard, and therein discover a whole magical world of heart-felt exchanges! Such a blessing!

My thanks,
- xok

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
