OK, so it's taken me 10 days to figure out how to get this image into my blog. It's quite a lovely award, isn't it? I thank Heather over at Mini Memoirs for awarding me with this. She is a wonderful friend, and just announced the news that she is expecting #4! The neat thing about her is that she is so strong. I am not just talking physically, people. She can handle and conquer about anything that comes her way. She is the kind of friend would do anything for you. I'm so glad I met her, and get to spend even more time with her on this journey of life.
So now it's time for the awardees...I'll try not to nominate people who have already been nominated, although it's hard!
1st) D. at http://mytotalpv.blogspot.com/. What a sweet mama to a smart as a whip toddler! She is the epitome of "being there" for a child if I've ever seen one. She is always ready and willing to make every moment a teaching moment. I love just watching her in action. I really enjoy spending time with her, even if she is ten times smarter than me!
2nd) Abby at http://lifebysugarcreek.blogspot.com/. Wow, we've known each other for about 6 yrs now. I'm so glad that we were "reacquainted" after a time. We've come to a place that our values, and just generally life have meshed, with kids, marriage, house, loss of parents--all the things you encounter "growing up". She is also a friend that would do anything for you, and I thank her for making herself and her home feel like home to me.
3rd) Sara at http://walkslowlylivewildly.blogspot.com/. It's just crazy when you, by chance, find someones blog that would change your life. From her Christian walk, to her declutter/compact experience, I have learned immensely from her. It's great fun that I've actually run into her twice in Des Moines. God is just awesome like that. She is truly someone that I could become friends with, and I am excited about her journey into a new season of traveling and relying on the Lord.
4th) Another Sarah, at http://theviewfromhere.wordpress.com/. This is someone I haven't actually met, but "know" through mutual friends. I love her personality and her perseverance as she waits on the Lord. She is so fun to read, and I just pray blessings for her throughout her life.
