Reader Appreciation Award

I was happily surprised the other day to get a note saying that a fellow Blogger had nominated me for a Reader Appreciation Award.  I guess it honestly meant more to me that someone is actually reading and coming back than anything else.  🙂

I’ve been blogging off and on for about 7 years and been with wordpress for 3 of them.  I have journals of thoughts, beginnings of novels, books, and even finished a couple books due out this summer.  Writing is second nature and it’s “what I do” when my world stops making sense.

I freelance for a parenting magazine and website and write monthly newsletter articles, so it’s not I’m new to having readers… but oddly, when a complete stranger stops by and says, “Hey, though I have NO idea who you are, I  think you’re sorta cool,”  well it’s then that you realize maybe you’re not half bad.  🙂

So – Patricia – Thanks for making my day completely ROCK! Stop by to visit her some time soon @  (Thanks for the awesome shout out!)  I have taken more trips and mental-getaways via her photos than I can count.  (Someday, Patricia, I swear I will have your life of interesting travels!  All in due time, I know, all in time.)

Here are some other’s who I read regularly and love having “FOUND” via the wonderful world of all things digital and online:

Please accept this award, fellow admired bloggers, and post it on your blog and share it with your favorite bloggers! 

Words do matter… and if you ever wondered what all that means, hop over to Tammy’s blog Wordsmatter @

Now Jen, well she doesn’t write nearly often enough for my liking, but that is probably due to the fact that she actually lives life.  But seriously, she has more strength in her little finger than I have in my whole body.  If you dont jump over there… then you’ve just wasted a lot of time here.  Go to .  So Jen – I love ya, but darling, dont forget to shout your incredible insights to the adoring world!

Betsy over @  where things are always just a laugh away – helps you escape from the chaos of parenting by showing the lighter side. Sometimes you have to laugh to keep from from crying, but aside from, darn it anyway, kids are FUNNY!

Teresa is a must read to @  If you’re a mom, know a mom, or love kids in any way…  this is a great blog for you.  She makes me laugh and remember that motherhood is not just a title, it’s an honor!

Then I truly appreciate the blogs and messages spread by  There is never a time I will know it all and not need to learn something new about how to be a better wife and spouse to my husband.

So – As I take this completely humble bow, I say thanks to all those who’ve stopped by over the years, and to those who’ve just come to find a laugh or two lately.  It’s nice to have ya around!

    You deserve the award 🙂 and thanks so much for the compliment and shout out. I never thought about all the traveling I’ve done until you mentioned it. I’ve always enjoyed it and can’t wait to do more. I hope you see all the places on your travel wish list. In the meantime, I guess we’ll enjoy traveling through these wonderful blogs. Take care 🙂
