Only passions, great passions, can elevate the soul to great things.
Denis Diderot

Angie graciously passed on the Passionate Blogger Award to me!

Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo in your blog
2. Write five things you are passionate about apart from blogging.
3. Tag 5 people on your lists and let them know you tagged them.


I caught this bug from my mom who always beelieved that experiences were more important than things. We are great travelers together and have visited some wonderful places! I'm looking forward to checking more locations off my list as the years pass.

2. Volunteerism
I always volunteered growing up and especially with my sorority in college. With my work in the Junior League I have reaffirmed my love for helping those in need. My real passions lie with children and animals but I enjoy finding new interests as well.

3. Scrapbooking
I admit I am really behind in my albums but I still keep a big bag of everything I wanted to save from our wedding, honeymoon, different trips, etc. I really love scrapbooking because it combines my love of taking photos and my appreciation for capturing memories.

4. Keeping a Home
Maybe it sounds silly but I really love my home. From decorating to cooking, organizing to entertaining I love the essence of being a homemaker. While I didn't really enjoy my time not working when we were first married (I was bored and we needed money!) I am looking forward to doing it again when we have children. I truly believe one of the greatest gifts you can give a family is a safe, warm environment in your home.

5. Reading
Again, thanks to my mom, I love to read. I often have friends come to me looking for book recommendations. I always say that no matter where I am if I have a book, I'll be fine. I am passionate about reading for sure.
