This week’s word is passionate. Here are a few things I’m passionate about…

  1. My husband, Barry. We have been married a little over five years now, and time sure does fly. I can’t wait for what the future holds!

  2. My family and friends. Family is, and has always been, very important to me. I love family traditions and getting together for holidays. I don’t have a huge number of friends, I’m more of a ‘choose your friends wisely’ type. The friendships I do keep often feel more like family. Having people who are important in your life is more valuable than a big house, fancy car, or any other riches.

  3. My dogs. Anyone who has read my blog for a hot minute knows I love my dogs very much. I know they’re not for everyone, but for me life is better with dogs. There’s nothing like a wagging tail greeting you at the door like you just made their day…. and that greeting being just as enthusiastic whether you’ve been done 3 days or 3 minutes.

  4. My Hokies!!! Another thing you probably already know about me. I went to school at Virginia Tech and I love rooting on my Hokies with gusto, especially in football.

  5. The mountains. I have lived in Virginia all my life, but not always in the mountains. I fell in love with them when I started going to school at Tech, and if I’m lucky I’ll always get to live in/near them.

  6. Running! I started running in 2007, during my freshman year of college, through Team in Training and subsequently ran my first race – the Country Music Half Marathon. I was pretty much hooked after that and, aside from a hiatus in 2010, I have been running consistently since then.

  1. Looks like you hit them all. The only thing I will add is my vehicles. I am passionate about the machines I drive, whether they have two, four or multiple wheels!

    But my girls come first.

    LUD.

    1. Glad to hear I rank above your Jeep! 😉

  2. I’m not sure I could really be friends with someone who doesn’t love animals. They are the loves of my life (sorry, hubby — he’d probably be the first one to tell you it’s true).

    I’m actually happy that we’ve lived in several different states. I enjoy exploring new places.

    1. Same here!

      I would like to have different experiences in different areas (maybe just through extended travels), but I also really love the state I live in 🙂

  3. My family, running, and one I forgot to mention in my own post but should be included: travel! I love seeing new places!

    1. It’s always neat to see new places! I hope to see more of the world someday.

  4. I”d say all of the above (except the Hokies!). And I am passionate about my job.

  5. I would say all the above except I am a Florida Gator! 🙂 I have a strong passion for my career and that gets things interesting too!

    1. To each her own! 🙂 I’ve got nothing against the Gators, though, and it was neat to see them beat Ole Miss! That was a big game.

  6. I have to admit, I am pretty fond of your dogs, too. Just from their pictures. They look like characters!

    And I completely understand about the mountains — they are remarkable. I went to college with a girl from Pearisburg and she really disliked not being able to see her mountains every day.

    1. Haha thank you! They definitely have a lot of personality.

  7. We have many of the same passions! Even both of our #1 passions starts with the letter “B.” 🙂

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Good point! I hadn’t actually thought of that 🙂 AND both of our B’s were found at Virginia Tech!!
