    The Honest Scrap award is given by other bloggers who consider a blog’s content or design to be brilliant. The awardee must then post ten honest things about themselves and pass the award on to other bloggers who fit the bill – in other words, someone brilliant.

    10 Honest Things…

    {folds hands and cracks knuckles}

    1. I never leave my house without my journal and my camera. Life throws the most random things at us and I know someday I’m not going to remember as much as I want, but this way, I’ll have pictures and little scraps of paper to remind me of the things that made me laugh and cry.

    2. From the time I was about 10 years old, I’ve always pictured my life the same way… me and a little girl, walking hand in hand through a big city. Until September 15, 2006 I just assumed it was a metaphor.

    3. When life has handed me more than I care to deal with, I put my headphones on and sit in my bathtub, curtain closed… without any water. Growing up, I shared a room with my sister and that was really the only place I had privacy.

    4. I was married at 17. We were officially divorced almost 9 years later. He knows me better than most people I interact with daily, better than my family and any man I’ve been with since. He knows the darkness I fought to overcome. He’s stronger than he realizes. He’s the father of my daughter and someone I still consider a friend, even though we still drive each other absolutely insane.

    5. I was curiously quiet when I was younger. I wouldn’t leave my house by myself and had very few friends. I spent my childhood observing people and am now unusually perceptive.

    6. I was raised by my step parents. My real mother began playing an active role in my life when I was 22. I met my real father for the first time when I was 25. I am the oldest of 9 siblings; half, step and adopted.

    7. I grew up on a 25 acre goat farm in Idaho. I was in 4-H and won 2 first place ribbons for my LaMancha goat named Butterfinger.

    8. I’ve shot a moose, 2 deer, a rabbit and a handful of birds, but I refuse to put a worm on the fish hook.

    9. My first crush ever was on my best friend. She lived on the corner, three houses down. Popular girl. Head cheerleader. She made me feel invincible. 15 years later, I find I have an unnatural attraction to computer geeks.

    10. I use humor to deflect, music to express and Twitter to distract.

    *Bonus. I want to open a Bed & Breakfast in Northern Washington, grow lavender and have my own textile and furniture design company.

    Wow. That's some intriguing stuff!

    The lavender festival just happened up north (and the lavender lemonade is to die for). Hope you get to be a part of it someday.

    Okay, so I'll be thinking about my 10 things. Stay tuned...

    Yeah, Mindy Mom.. I'm a little behind. LOL What can I say? I loved your 10 Honest Things though. Sometimes, I can't help but feel like you're in my head. ;)

    This is very enlightening Ms. Spencer. I knew some of this, but the B&B, I would have never pegged you for. And that premonition about you and Addi? That's just wacky. I think you're more connected to the universe than you realize :)

    Thanks for sharing, you inspire me all the time and I love you for it!
