My Kreativ Blogger Awards

I just want to say thank you to two of my fellow Geneabloggers, Thomas MacEntee of Destination Austin Family and Hummer of Branching Out Through the Ye for their gift of the Kreativ Blogger award recently.  It is nice to receive the encouragement and compliments of my fellow geneabloggers.  If you haven't already, you should really check out their blogs and add them to your daily reading.

As part of the challenge of the award, I must reveal seven things about myself that I have not previously revealed either in a blog post or on Twitter.  Here goes:
  • In high school, I was a co-captain of the wrestling team.  Though not a great wrestler, I did really enjoy the sport, and wish I was still in as good of shape as I was back then.
  • I really enjoy living history events, and if I could afford it and had the time, would be a Civil War re-enactor.
  • Though I've been to Europe, I would really love to visit England.
  • Genealogy is in my blood, my maternal 4th-great grandfather, John Beals, authored the "Chronology of the Beals family", which started me on a quest for my roots.
  • I would love to travel to New England and also see the Rockies.
  • Majored in political science and minored in German and history at college, ended up in finance - go figure!
  • I would love to retire to a warmer climate, perhaps the Carolinas or Tennessee.
And now I need to pass this award on to another seven of my fellow bloggers:

Tag!  You're it!
