Can you see me on the city street flashing a newspaper by your eyes? Can you feel the fan of paper and smell the freshly printed ink as I point out the latest and greatest news story? What am I talking about, you ask? A pretty darn great nomination, that's what!
I got the email.
I read the email.
I double read the email.
What the awesomeness?
I have been so graciously nominated as one of the top 10 finalists competing for the "Best Blog for Deliberate Mothers" award in the Power of Mom's Contest.
Wowzers. I'm speechless.
Just kidding. I am never speechless. But shocked...definitely. Thanks oh so very much for those who voted for me. What a lovely surprise.
Voting has now begun to determine the top 3, and goodness gracious there are some major amazing blogs as competition. I was equally thrilled when I saw that my friend Jenny's blog had been nominated...she is so deserving.
So, go here to vote (you can vote for 3), and when you are there be sure to check out each and every nomination before you do. Really AMAZING Mom Blogs out there and I am so very honored to be included with them. Once stories are read, songs are sung, and a bit of back and forth debate on the designated bedtime with my relentless 10 year old subsides, I hope to start a reading frenzy to discover these deserving Mothers and all that they offer to help feed my maternal soul.
This Mothering gig is so rewarding in and of itself, but it's also fun to know that there are bonus points in the form of blog awards as well;)
Thanks so very very much for the chance.
If you are new here to check ME out, well then, Welcome! Please, take a seat and stay awhile! I hope you will soon realize that I make the best banana bread in the world, I'm a crazy party throw-er, and that I love being a Mother more than anything. Here are some posts to introduce myself and my perspective through my photos and words:
