My Very First Blogging Award!

Alison Stevens over at Wistful Wanderings just sent me my very first blogging award, One Lovely Blog Award.

Isn't it lovely?  It's shiny and new and I am about to add it to my sidebar proudly.  My whole day has been made.  I am smiling ear to ear.  Oh, what, you just cut me off on the freeway?  No problem.  I just got a blogging award.  I can't even hear my kids fighting because I just got a blogging award.  Not just any blogging award, but my first blogging award ever!

Now, instead of my husband coming home from a long days work to a tired wife who has been shuffling kids back and forth to school and piano lessons, while making sure the homework is done and the dinner is made, he gets a happy go-lucky recently awarded wife.  Thank you, Alison!

Okay, so now it's time to pay it forward.  Here are fifteen blogs I believe deserve the One Lovely Blog Award.
  1. Pam Torres at So I'm Fifty!
  2. Margo Kelly at Margo Kelly
  3. Debbie Curran at Words 'n' Whimsy
  4. Heather Kelly at Edited to Within an Inch of My Life
  5. Tina Laurel Lee at Watch Me Practice
  6. Jessica Stanford at Girl, Unpublished
  7. Kelly Polark at Kelly Polark
  8. Jo Schaffer at Shoveling in a Jo Storm
  9. Margie G. at Spin Me Write Round
  10. Melissa at Through the Looking Glass
  11. Lola Sharp at Sharp Pen/Dull Sword
  12. Brian at The Urban Cowboy
  13. Carol & Stacy at Intentional Conscious Parenting
  14. Angela Pena Dahle at A Pen in Neverland
  15. Gabriela Lessa at An Aspiring Writer's World
Each of the blogs I've chosen have helped me in one way or another through inspiration, cheering me on, making me laugh, teaching me something I didn't think of, or just simply having fun reads when I deserpately need one on any given day.

Thank you Alison Stevens for my award and thank you fellow bloggers who inspire me with your posts.
