Welcome, WOW Women! (and men, but women added the alliteration you see...)

Hello all! I'm being featured today at a new favorite site of mine--I discovered it about a month ago and have been so grateful to find a little niche of the blogging world that I can wholeheartedly support and love!

The site is called WOW (Words of Wisdom) and I'm today's featured BON (which sounds like a delicious candy but is actually the abbreviation for Blogger of Note). I'm so incredibly honored to be chosen for this!

I'm supposed to introduce myself. The first post I'm linking to should do a rather good job of that, but here's a quick peek!

I'm Lora, recently turned 29, living in Nashville, Tennessee. I'm a Jesus-lovin, wonderful man dating, liberal, slightly crunchy, healthful (kinda) cooking, recycling wanna-be guru, yogi, clotheshorse, fun loving, just plain loving, living in the moment, eclectic gal. I embrace my ancestry wholeheartedly and try to remember my roots--midwestern (known as a yankee down here in the south though!), German and Irish.
Sláinte!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

I truly believe life is all about the journey and those you choose to share it with. And what an incredible ride I'm having! If you've been around the last couple of weeks you'll understand why I'm keeping this intro kind of short (yup, this is short for me! :0) If not, I invite you to read the posts starting March 31 or so on to now. I firmly believe that this is part of my story to share with people at large because GOD deserves the glory for the amazing things that are going on in the midst of a situation most would deem hopeless. A.m.a.z.i.n.g. things girls and guys!

Ok...so I'm literally sitting in a McDonald's parking lot for the wifi signal...and it's 11:42 pm. And my wonderful amazing boyfriend is worried sick that I'm crazy enough to do this, and I promised him I'd leave at midnight. Soooo I'm going to link you to a few posts that will give you a glimpse into who I am...and I will visit you all very soon! (I should have my internet up and running by 4pm today thank GOODNESS! I'm an addict y'all!)

"i'm just me" --all about being real
"today" --again, being real
"the one with..."--memories and laughing
"chicken fajita burgers"--recipes and other home life tips

I look forward to meeting all of you and discovering--or rediscovering--your amazing blogs!

Love to you all,

I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought of candy the first time they read "BON".

And isn't McDonalds great giving away free Wifi? People complain about their unhealthy food, but as long as there is free WiFi to be had I'm happy.

Rachel Cotterill said...

Nice to meet you :) Also, yay for free wifi. I would really struggle without the internet!

Cheryl said...

Congratulations on being BON at WOW! Gotta love all those acronyms. Enjoyed reading your posts. Keep rockin' it!

so...tell me Lora - is it an Irish brogue with a hint of southern charm..or the other way around?

we are on a similar path you and I - living in the NOW taking responsibility for our happiness...choosing wisely.

Thanks to WOW for pointed me in your direction and CONGRATS for being BON...

Congrats from one BON to another one! I was featured waaaaaay back a few weeks ago...isn't it hard to believe how far this site has grown so fast?! It was much-needed in the blogosphere, that's for sure. Enjoy your day in the spotlight, and I'm sure many wonderful people will cross your path, just as they've crossed mine.

Matthew said...

I agree with you on life and its amazing journey.

Pleasure to come across you. :)

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

Happy Bon day...I'm off to look around!

I am so excited to come across your blog! Just found you were featured at WOW and dropped by for a visit. I'm in Nashville too! How fun, I'm off to see more of your great blog.

Ronnica said...

True Yankees don't accept me (a Kansan) but you're right...Southerners will call anyone a Yankee if they're even from a little bit up north!

Thanks for being honest about where you wrote this post...that's quite telling in itself!

Karen said...

Good luck with getting your internet up and running. But bravo to your bravery for sitting in a McDonald's parking lot so late at night!

Hope you enjoy your BoN day!

Shannon said...

Happy BON Day! You are dedicated! I am now following you! I am part Irish as well!

Melissa B. said...

Greetings & Salutations! Always happy to meet someone whose blog offers variety. WOW has opened a whole new world to me!

Hi,

Yay a new face! Congrats being a BON! You deserve it! I'm going to snoop around now!

Jennee said...

I hate internet problems..but love free wifi! I use it often. Once upon a time, 4 years ago, I lived in Nashville. I also love Jesus...so we have a lot in common!

WhiteSockGirl aka The Fabulous Bitch said...

Ejoy your BON shinning moments! Will check out some of your posts.. Though, I visited before...

I can't believe you went to McD's @ 11H42 pm in the evening for a wifi signal.... can't get over that!!!!!

Star Forbis said...

Great Blog. You really know yourself, thanks for letting us get to know you too.

Jo said...

Hi, Lora. I'm afraid I'm a few days late and a few dollars short in wishing you a belated congratulations for being Monday's 'BON'.

I apologize for my tardiness and will take my punishment accordingly.

From one 'Irish lass at heart' to another (I'm married to an Irishman so that's as close as I'm gonna get, I'm afraid, to being 'the real McCoy'), I'm pleased to make your acquaintance.

Wishing you many more happy journeys.

Peace and serenity,
~Jo
