Versatile Blogger Award

I love blogging about my professional life: piano and preschool music, so I am thrilled to receive the Versatile Blogger Award from Heidi from her blog: Heidi's Piano Studio.  

Here is how this award works:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you this award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Pass the award along to 15 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! (In no particular order…)
  4. Contact the bloggers you’ve picked and let them know about the award.

Thank you Heidi for recognizing my blog.  I have loved looking through Heidi's Piano StudioShe has some wonderful ideas and a love for children.  I especially like her focus on the pre- reading little ones :)
1. I am a mother of three very busy children: Jacob who is 6, Elizabeth who is 11 and soon to be 14 year old Christina.  They all have red hair and are all very different.  The two eldest play piano (YEAH!) and the youngest loves to dance and sing while they play.

2. I am the eldest of three kids and have a wonderful, supportive family.  I love to organize and plan things (especially vacations).  Here are some pictures of some recent vacations we took as a family.

We had a great time at Disney World in 2009

3. I have been married to my wonderful husband for over 15 years.  He is a police attorney and is the youngest of five.  All of his brother and sisters live in NC and many live in our neighborhood, which makes it easy to find a baby sitter :)

4.  I am a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill and so is my husband, so needless to say we are big Carolina fans!  Go HEELS!

5. My girls have been involved in several theater productions and I have actually gotten bit by the theater bug as well.  I have shared the stage with my oldest and have gotten to music direct some shows as well.

6. I play the keyboard  in Francisco Road ( A Christian Rock Band).  My husband is the lead singer and my daughter also helps out with vocals.  We have played around our area and have a wonderful time performing.  You can see more about us at

7. I plan on redecorating the inside of my house this year!  So I will be looking at some decorating blogs :)  Wish me luck!

I have been following many website and blogs for years, using their wonderfully ideas in my studio.  Many times it has inspired me to create a game or activity of my own.  Thank you to all the wonderful, creative people who take time to share their ideas!
