It took me over a year, but I’ve been awarded a bloggy award! So, all of you who haven’t received an award – hang in there! Those of you who have received a bunch of awards – don’t tell me, ok?
My first award is called the Arte Y Pico award and it “was created/made to be given out to bloggers who inspire others with their creative energy and their works, whether it be writing, artwork or more.”
It was presented to me by Kaye from Mrs. Nespy’s Frugal World. She also blogs at Riding Bicycles, which took me an embarrassing amount of time to figure out. (I love her header quote there.)
Thank you Kaye! I’ll always remember that my first award came from you.
Two Days after I was notified of my first award, Nancy from More than Conquerors left me a comment that she is passing 2 [TWO!] more awards on to me. Thank you Nancy! It’s so kind of you to include me.
This lovely award is created by Crystal @ Memoirs of a Mommy in honor of Noah and the donor of his sweet little heart who ENCOURAGES us to SHARE THE LOVE! The rules for this award are to pass it along to some people whose blogs you love. They make you laugh, smile, leave encouraging comments on your blog. You would like to share some love with them because they have uplifted, inspired, encouraged or prayed for you. Please include this paragraph with the link to Memoirs of a Mommy so that everyone knows where this award originated from.
Nancy also passed on this cute Friendship Award to me. This one only comes with it’s name. No rules or regulations. The name says it all.
I think I feel a little like Sarah in Skylark when she goes out in the rain after living in drought. The awards are falling!
Now I get to pass these awards on! I’m gonna cheat a little and not do 5 for the first one.
How do I choose? There are so many great bloggers out there.
The Arte Y Pico Award to: Angela at the painted house. She has “inspired” me in these ways:
- Her husband was just recently diagnosed cancer free – a wonderful answer to prayer.
- She is decorating a little cottage with second hand items.
- She does wonderful paintings on walls and other things.
Angela, may your family stay healthy, your eyes stay contact free, and your cottage turn out beautifully!
The Sharing the Love Award to: Anne at From my perspective. She has made me laugh at her antics and blonde moments, left encouraging comments here, and inspired/encouraged me by her heart for missions and seeing God’s blessings in her everyday life. May God bless your trip to Thailand, Anne!
The Friendship Award to: Abbi at Dear Abbi and Katina at Cherish the Moment. Not only are you the only bloggers I’ve met in real life, you both are an encouragement because of the way you live and love through parties, play times, pressures, and parenting. (Plus, you are great commentors and I’m so addicted to comments.) Thanks for your friendship.
One thing I didn’t realize is how much work this award accepting can be; and I didn’t even get to wear a new dress. (bummer)
