Love Woke Me Up This Morning

Between the loss of my friend and the stress of finishing up summer semester in two weeks, I've been too distracted to get a decent post up. That's why I figured today would be the perfect time to introduce you to Emmy, my Featured Sponsor this month. Emmy blogs at Love Woke Me Up This Morning which is something I think we all need to wake up too lately.

Can you give me a brief introduction about you and your blog?

Mother Theresa once said: "I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love." What gets you up in the morning? On the surface, at least for me, it's my iPod alarm, an enthusiastic dog, and a strong cup of coffee. To be totally honest, I'm not really a morning person. It takes me a little while to get coherent thoughts going in the early hours of the day and my snooze button is always tempting me. But eventually, I do get up. I go about my day. There's something that motivates me to gPiet my rear out of my bed and do my thing every single day.My hope is that "something," is love. I want this blog to be where I can remind myself, and you, of that. Love should be the thing that motivates me every single day.

What do you like to do for fun when you aren't blogging?

 I read ( A LOT), write novels, participate in my local community theatre, watch musicals, and spend time with my family and friends.

What is your favorite "geeky" thing?

I'm a HUGE geek - so this is a tough one to pick just one thing! I'm the biggest Harry Potter fan ever, but recently I've become a fan of Doctor Who and Supernatural. But Harry Potter will always have a special place in my heart.

Anything else you would like to add?

 I can't wait to get to know all of you better!

Make sure you stop by and say hi to Emmy. 

I also wanted to thank those of you who reached out to say something nice or just leave a kind word for me. For some reason I've lost some blog and twitter followers over the death of my friend which I totally don't get. Thanks to all of you who stick with me, it's much appreciated.


  1. Thanks for having me! And many hugs, thoughts, and prayers are coming your way. :)


Leave some love <3
