Thank you

Being relatively new to the blogging scene I am humbled as well as baffled as to how I received not one, but two awards recently. The latest bestowed upon me is from SimplyColette along with a KreativBlogger Award graciously given to me by Catanya's Things. Thank you for reading and enjoying what goes on in a day in the life of Natalie.
I'm not sure what the rules are but most of them are to share things about yourself that others may not know. I mentioned to Colette that I feel like I tell way too much and must bore everyone to tears...but let's see if I can surprise you with any of these.

1. I took ballet for over ten years anticipating that one day I would be a ballerina...unfortunately a broken ankle from cheerleading ended that idea.
2. Benson is the first dog I have ever had. He's taught me so much about enjoying life and going for it.
3. I rode up in an elevator with Oprah to the penthouse apartment where she lives in Chicago. Her skin looked flawless.
4. My mother went out on a date with Rick Springfield aka Dr. Noah Drake. This was before "Jessie's Girl."
5. I was voted "Babe-a-licious" in High School. Yuck. I wanted to be the girl most likely to succeed or the funniest or the most talented. I'm still trying.
Okay...that's all you get. I'll tell more later so you can see that I'm not all drama. My life is crazed at times but I'm very fortunate and very happy to have A French Cloud, friends, and amazing readers like you that are kind and supportive. Thank you.


  1. A "Babe-a-licious" Ballerina with a really big heart and an adorable dog! Good Stuff! But I believe you also win for success and talent too - you own a business and you find antiques with soul! This is a very big accomplishment!

  2. I need those lashes and that umbrella! So fun! I was Most Individual in High School, which means people must have thought I was weird. :)

  3. Natalie~ This post proves it.....You have one of the most magical lives!!! :)

  4. omg! u rode with oprah!! gosh!! and ur dad looks really hot mate! :D. its sad he wasnt a part of your life. :(

  5. the free spirit of your parents is pulsing in your life in a beautiful way...

  6. Hello, I absolutely adore your site and I just had to leave a note for you to say so !

    Your posts are interesting, creative and original, and your pictures are great too.

    Perfection !

    Thank you for sharing them all and best wishes... Happy September

  7. I took ballet for over ten years and quit, thats one of my biggest regrets in life. I didn't realize how much I loved ballet until after I quit. I was voted best dressed in high school, and was/still am so ecstatic about it :)


thank you for leaving a message...glad to know you're here.
