Illuminated and Thinking Randomly


I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I have been nominated for a blog award!  I have only been blogging for a few months now in my new residence here in WordPress, and I am so happy that somebody enjoyed my posts enough to nominate me! Thank you so much to Food Stories for nominating me! Guys, check this blog out for yourself as it is filled with great food stories and tons of amazing recipe recommendations that are always useful to mommy bloggers like me 🙂

Now on to something a little more random to say about myself… I am a BEATLES fanatic! I have been one all my life, but more than just being a fan of the fab four (isn’t Paul McCartney just beautiful???), I am an absolute fan of their music.  I will never get tired of listening to their albums!  My influence has rubbed off greatly onto my son, which is why you would always here Beatles music blasting away in his room.  I am also a collector of Beatles memorabilia, though not at all a hard core kind of collector, I have a few amazing pieces that I can proudly display in my living room.  Here are just a few of the pieces I have collected through gifts from friends and purchases I’ve made:


I actually had another post planned today, but due to this nomination, I will save that post till next 😛  Again, thanks to FoodStories! 😀
