My Very First Blog Award!

9:27 PM

Today, I was cursed enough to break my hand, but blessed enough to learn that I have been given my very first blog award. This is such an honor for me, because as someone who is primarily alone every day at home and who has written mostly anonymously for others the past three years, it is wonderful to know that someone actually likes what I write about.

The beautiful and talented Emily over at Mommy Made Green has been kind enough to give me the Sunshine Award for my blog and I would love to say a big thank-you to her, today especially more than any other day.

The 12 wonderful blogs I will be passing this award on to that are a beautiful ray of Sunshine and helpfulness any day of the week are as follows:

  1. Montessori For Learning
  2. Cassiopeia Chats
  3. Sweet Savings in Colorado
  4. Profitable Mommy Blogging
  5.  Jolly Mom
  6. This Little Family
  7. Reading, Writing, Raisin' Boys
  8. Sovereignly Sustaining Sanity
  9. My Mommy Bits
  10. Blue Cotton Memory
  11. The Gruneisen Family News
  12. Mommy's Free Time
The only rules to accepting this award is to post thanking the person who gave it to you and pass it on to 12 other blogs that bring Sunshine into your day!
