A little bit of this... a little bit of that...

First I need to acknowledge a couple awards that fellow bloggers have bequeathed on me. I'm so sorry that this took me so long in some cases, I'll try to be a bit more prompt in passing these on in the future.

Michele at The Rocky Mountain Retreat gave me this award almost three weeks ago.

If you haven't already, please go take a look at her blog and her amazing photographs. She has such a wonderful spirit and has become one of my dearest blogging friends.

I would love to pass this on to Julie over at the Daily Rhythm. She is a wonderful mom that is going to school and taking care of two little girls, all while expecting her third! She amazes me with her kind and loving spirit.

I also received this award from Jackie over at Mothers Pride. She is one strong woman, raising four girls primarily on her own. Please stop by her blog and read her wonderful writing.

Oh I love this award, I have "met" so many wonderful women since starting this blog. I have to pass it on to a whole lot of you! Please stop by these ladies blogs:

Michele at The Rocky Mountain Retreat

Corey at Living and Loving every minute of it!

Mama Zen at The Zen of Motherhood

Huckdoll at Hey I'm going crazy. Are you Coming?

Holly at Oh how my winter nights fly.

Nap Warden at Chronicles of a stay at home mom.

All of these ladies are just awesome and I'm so glad I get to pass this on to them.

This brings me to the other thing I have been thinking about, all of this blogging.

When you live in a rural community and work out of your house like I do. You feel a bit shut off from the world. Through blogging I get the chance to meet amazing people from around the world. I read mom blogs, religious blog, political blogs, nature blogs, photography blogs, humor blogs and author-blogs.

I read about peoples fears, loves, and illnesses. I get to see the world through other peoples perspectives and I get inspired by their creativeness.

This blogging experience is giving me so much more than I ever expected. Thank you to everyone who is reading my blog, and a huge thank you to those who comment.

My fifty year old uncle and his wife just had their first baby this week! I really can't imagine having a baby when I'm fifty but I know that he has waited a very long time for this little family and will be a wonderful daddy. This baby is the youngest grandchild and my brother at 38 is the oldest!

One more thing, we are taking a long weekend and going to the coast Friday. Bug is so excited and has been counting down the sleeps until we go. If the weather holds we will have lots of bicycle riding, sand castle making and picture taking to do. I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Thank you so much! I feel so honored that you would think of me!

I also agree with what you have said about blogging...I started it as a way to capture moments with my girls, but I have met so many wonderful people to connect to with their blogs.

Hope you are enjoying your long weekend, and that the weather holds up for you! Sounds so fun.
