Off With Her Head!




Yahoo! I have been given a "Marie Antoinette Keeping it Real Award" by Kate from Our Red House, which by the way is a Great Blog so go over there and check it out.
I briefly read up about Marie Antoinette because the only thing I knew about her was that she lost her head, which I could relate to over the years but thank goodness now is firmly in place. Marie Antoinette was the Queen of France during the French Revolution. Resented by the French citizenry for her foreign birth and extravagant lifestyle, Marie Antoinette has gone down in history as the arrogant and apathetic monarch who said "let them eat cake" when told the peasants were starving because they had no bread. Well all I could add to that was that I REALLY love cake. So I think I will pass this unusual award to these Great and Amazing Blogs :-


Now I'm off to have me sum cake!....(hehehe)

Awwww, this could not be better timing my friend...the irony of it makes me smile.

Here I was typing about my hospital experience and post surgery challenges thinking maybe it's too much info, maybe I sound like a whiner.
But then I said to myself, "Self, it's my blog, and I'm just gona keep it real"

And here you go giving me this "Keepig it Real" award.
How cool is THAT?!

Hugs to you my dearest,
