Seriously, how lucky am I? I have been blogging for a fairly short time. During this time I have been blessed to discover some great reads and unleash my creative demon. A wonderful little bonus. Awards! Who knew…and it I will admit it, it feels so good. I love comments, I adore new followers, and now I love awards.
I’m going to pass on these little beauties…but being who I am…I will break the rules a bit. If I was to pass the first award to 10, the second to 7 etc. Well I’d drive you all crazy and award every single one of you (I just don’t have that many readers) Instead please know that I love you all as I select 1 winner for each award!
Thanks so much to the sweetie over their in Kellogsville AND to the Mom Gone Mad over there at Mum in Chaos who both bestowed upon me the Lemonade Award! Yes, when life gives you lemons you make lemonade, when a bloggy friend gives you a Lemonade Award, you spread the love!
This award is to show gratitude and I have to pass it on to some blogs that I appreciate and am grateful for.
I have realized in a very short time that I am grateful for every single comment and for every follower. I didn’t start out thinking I would have even 1 follower! (side note, I lost a follower yesterday..where or where did you go…what did I say to offend you so…it hurt when you left me)
Blogging was not meant to be about finding followers, I had hoped it would be a place where I could vent, emote, write with out judgment. It’s turned into that and so much more. I have realized that there are so many other women out there who “get” exactly where I am coming from. Who feel the same way I do. Who have the same experiences, who can chuckle and cry right along with me. Who knew blogging would be it’s very own gift.
I have chosen to pass this award on the Lemonade Award to:
Kimert over at Diaries of a Coach’s Wife She is one of my new reads. Go check out her great blog!
My second award was gifted to me by Ambersmilz over at A look into the common life.

Last but not least, one of my new faves and 1 more means four passed on the Honest Scrap to me.
