“They like me, they really like me!”

Yesterday morning, while checking me email, I was prompted to moderate my blog comment area and, upon doing so, experienced a ‘Sally Fields moment’. 😀  I was nominated for a 7 x 7 Link Award by fellow blogger Nissa Knows.  I’m all abuzz because, well, it’s pretty freaking cool to be thought of – yeah, it gets me right here (tapping the left side of my chest).

So before I fulfill the obligations of the nomination; I’d like to thank my nominator and my readers for being there with me through this (monumental – it gets tougher everyday) journey and keeping me from feeling so alone on this side of the pond!  Thank you!

Share seven things about yourself:

  • I REALLY love, respect, and am totally proud of my mom, my grandma, and my great-grandma because by the grace of God and their combined forces of will, they’ve pushed each generation forward.
  • I have this crazy notion that I can accomplish anything I really want to yet secretly worry that I’ll fail.
  • I hate that I talk a lot and have been trying to tame the compulsion by learning to listen.  (I’m still working on that one!)
  • I like to be liked by everyone but I’m learning to accept that it’s not really that important.
  • I try to live by the command “Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you.”
  • Of all of the seven cardinal sins, my biggest struggle is with ‘wrath’.  (I’ve always had a temper that with daily prayer, I keep tightly – and exhaustingly – under control.)
  • I LOVE to joke around and laugh. 😀

Designate seven posts into the following categories:

Nominate seven sites:

These are the bloggers I read, which if you look closely enough, will outline 7 more things about myself.

  • Vintage Vandalizm – I just love fashion!
  • Gullingstorpgoatsblog – This blogger inspires me in my journey.
  • The Vienna Girl – Besides being a fantastic writer, I enjoy reading her take on Vienna.
  • Palm Trees & Bare Feet – While I may not always comment, this blogger’s questions of the day always make me think.
  • A Kingdom Princess – This blogger helps to keep me grounded and reminds me to center myself on Christ.
  • Mimie’s Microcosmos – This blogger is truly supportive, constantly keeping me abreast of activities, events, and articles in/about my new city and explaining all the confusing intricacies that go with learning the culture and language – thank’s Mimie!
  • Indulge – Travel, Adventure, & New Experiences – I really dig that I can feed my travel lust via this blogger (she’s been everywhere!) while I’m temporarily grounded.

About A Bahamian In Austria

I am a Bahamian woman, married to an Austrian man, who's been freshly transplanted to Vienna. I started writing this blog when a dear friend insisted that I had to write down my experiences. At best it'll update my buddies on my crazy-going-ons and at least, it'll keep me from stalking them online (LOL). I hope you enjoy :D

Many apologies for this late reply Donnalee and many thanks for being so kind. You’re more than welcome to visit at any time – perhaps you should collaborate with mom on a trip! Many blessings to you and yours as well!
