...just me...

But go ahead,Don't let me stop ya... picture yourself on a hammock, toes grazing the warm pink sand as you read. There...ready? Perfect.

I am continually amazed and awed at this brave new world
of blogging! I've seen mountains moved...internet souls converge in the 100's of thousands to help a family in need.

Continents and remote islands all a new way.


You guys all just float my boat! Thank you for accepting me into your worlds...

and I love peeping into yours!

The ever lovely Julia from Hooked on Houses (the quintessential blogger on all things House...and design reality shows!) Has gifted Lime in the Coconut with her

new and colorful Hooked on your blog award...

Thanks Julia!I accept it....with grace, and the knowledge that I am equally hooked on hers....and many, many...many(check the list, that needs updating, on the right) more!

The Tropical Mango gal from journey's of mangonette (who doesn't love that name?! You'll love her blog even more!) and Beth Ann from Team Thornhill News (eloquent blog on family, twins and life!) Have asked me to divulge 8 things

you may or may not know about me. ( me? really??)

So....I'll give it a go. (if you are not yet snoozing on the hammock, with raffia hat covering your eyes...actually it would make me feel better if you were....

1. Coffee yogurt. Sliced banana...try it. I did almost every day of my first pregnancy. Primo.

2. I don't do socks. Well maybe in running shoes, but in FL anyway.

3. Sleeping yet?

4. I Love the smell of a newborn baby...and have had the privledge of being at the birth of more than I can count.

5. I worked for a NY State Senator. Senators tend to go to a lot of parades.

6. I can recite the stages of lactogenesis in my sleep. I'm not helpin' ya...look it up.

7. I can drive very, very fast. I think I am that good (oy!). My Bro and I used to take my dad's new cars to 120mph and over...every time he got a new one. No, my Dad never knew. Yes, My Bro races formula I race cars now.

8. My greatest joy...and deepest pain... has been learning to assist and live with (and help navigate often muddy waters) our child with Autism. I know I am a better person and mother because of him. He has been, and continues to be, my greatest teacher.Biggest hero. Bar none.

Congrats on the award. Loved your greatest joy, what a great outlook.

Thank you Natalie!

Ok folks. Listen up...I spent over an hour trying to edit this post with links and some of my fave blogs to pass this on to. My ineptness...or perhaps a bug, 'cause the post showed in latin to me(!!!) would not allow me to add these links. i will breathe. And wait. And try agian.

To be continued...for sure. Carry on.

You're one of MY heroes, Linda!

Oh, Linda! I came over here to get my daily fix from you and I just don't know how I missed this post!

First, I have to tell you - I am amazed at blogland, too. Just amazed at the people it brings together, from all walks of life, across the globe, even.

Second, you've had such an interesting life. Working for a NY senator?!

Third, my heart went out to you when I read that you have a son with autism. I have 2 very good friend who has an autistic sons, and believe me, you, along with them, are my heroes. :) I have an adult sister who has Williams Syndrome (somewhat like Downs) and I just wish I could reach thru the screen and give you a hug.

Fourth - I don't do socks, either. :) I hope you have a wonderful week!

Sorry about the horrible grammar in my comment - I am typing on my husband's laptop and I can't ever get used to this crazy tiny keyboard! :)
