One Lovely Blog Award!

Many thanks to Stacy at Made with Love for nominating me for the One Lovely Blog Award! We have bonded recently over our love of travel and it has been a pleasure getting to know her, so be sure to check out her blog!

I still consider my self a novice blogger, with my first post back in April. I never knew what an amazing journey this would be! I have made so many connections with amazing teachers that I would have NEVER had the opportunity to, and for that I am grateful! The open hearts of teachers and their willingness to collaborate and create with other teachers is something special! Just last week I was invited to join a group of teachers who are facing the same challenge as me in the fall, National Board Certification. I am also collaborating with teachers in a book study for "Learn Like a Pirate". These little things are some surprising aspects of teaching I never knew existed, but have become some of my favorite parts! 

Here are some facts about me:
1. I am finishing up my 4th year of teaching.
2. I have taught Kindergarten for the past 3 years.
3. This year was my first year teaching 2nd grade.
4. I didn't have ANYONE pee their pants this year *bonus*!! 
5. I have and ADORE my Weimaraner pup, Lexy.
6. My hubby and I are ready to grow our family!
7. I cry more when I am happy than sad.
8. I cried soo many times this weekend! (Watched American Pharaoh win the Triple Crown, Watched Flika on Netflix, Watched McFarland USA) Grab your tissues if you are a happy crier! 
9. My husband has a finance & travel blog and there is secretly so much competition between us no competition!
10. I unknowingly spell things out with my toes while lounging on the couch. The hubby points it out all the time, but I don't even know I am doing it! Weird, I know!

I nominate the following peeps because I love their blogs!
