a blog award, from a beautiful blogger


A sincere thank you to Jeni from Super Size my Cob for the Beautiful Blogger award. Check out her blog if you haven't already, it's an interesting, informative, and heartfelt well written blog!

The Beautiful Blogger award Rules are:
1. Link back to the person who gave you the award
2. Share 7 things about yourself
3. Pass the award to 15 other bloggers

Thing 1: When I was a teenager, I jokingly told my mom not to worry about me I plan to marry Robert Redford. I'm really not a big fan, must have been the "steady-type" older actor at the time. Well I did better. He's got darker hair, he's my best friend - and we are rich beyond compare, money not included.

Thing 2: I've been a fitness instructor for over 20 years, altho you can't tell by looking at me...especially these days. I've recently turned down some nice teaching positions. It's my second job. I'm currently a sub. I'm thinking about hanging up the towel, to keep all my evenings free to spend with my family & focus on horseback riding.

Thing 3: One of my dreams is to ride on a beach, splash in the waves, riding bareback - ideally on a Friesian (my dream horse). In reality, any horse would make the dream come true (no honey, a puddle and/or stream doesn't count).

Thing 4: I can't lie

Thing 5: The name Aurora runs in my family, it was my grandmothers name, my mothers name, mine, and my oldest daughter.

Thing 6: Another one of my dreams is to see the Northern Lights in Finland, altho I would settle for a Canadian sighting (hint, hint).

Thing 7: I am a firm believer in destiny.

I'm afraid I won't be able to comply with rule #3. This blog award has already been awarded to many bloggers whose blogs I regularly read, enjoy and also think are beautiful bloggers! Among them (in no particular order) are Super Size my Cob, All Horse Stuff, Mustang Diaries, Once Upon an Equine, Barn Door Tagz, Nuzzling Muzzles, A Year with Horses, If Wishes were Horses desert horses and more...below are very deserving beautiful bloggers who may, or may not, also already have the award:

Thank you Aurora ! Very cool that your name is a family thing. I've seen "Northern Lights" once on an extremely cold clear night in Northern Michigan. I had to stop driving and watch. Took my breath away.

Beach riding ~ would LOVE to do that as well. I envy Kacy at All Horse Stuff and her beach riding!

Have an absolute wonderful day!

I have only seen the Northern Lights once in WI, when I was a teenager. They were white, and still took my breath away.

We do see them in color in WI upon occasion, but I always seem to miss them. I would love to see them anywhere they fill up the entire sky with their magnificent color! Finland is suppose to produce the most vibrant ones, during their frigid cold weather.
