"You Rock" Blog Award!! Passing It On

I am not really sure why life has kept me from blogging much lately, but with today being a holiday, no school or seminary, I sat down to catch up on reading everyone else's blogs, and oh my!! The Wonderful things I have missed!! Thanks to all of you who are better at this than I have been and have continued to share your thoughts, insights, joys and heartaches with the rest of us.

I especially want to thank Linda Joy at Gramee's for the very cute blog award!! She gave me her very own, made up "You Rock" Award!! I love that! Thank you so much!

I love her blog and know you all will too. She always has a variety of interesting posts. You can check it out here.

And now I get the honor of passing the award on to a few of you. I am going to start with three and then add more in time. (I figure once you have the award you can pass it on as often as you like, right?:-)

So . . . here goes!!

To Carolyn at Fruit of the Carolyn
Carolyn is one of the most amazing women I know. She does it all. She is a writer, photographer, mother, nubian goat milker, and baker extraordinar. She is open and honest and you will love reading her blog.

To Kristin at Alpine Klein Bunch
Kristin is another amazing woman I have "met" through blogging. She is a nurse, mother, photographer, writer, and great animal lover. Oh, and you will have to try her banana chocolate chip muffin recipe!! We just had some this morning. They are to die for!!

And lastly Dawn at Momza's House

Dawn was one of my first blogging friends and I have loved getting to know her. She is a wonderful missionary, wise, poetic, does home staging, and is a doula. If you don't know what that is, you will want to read her blog for sure.

So there you have it. Three of the many wonderful women I have come to know and admire through the blogging world.

The rules of the award are:

1. You must post a link to the person who gave it to you.

2. You must pass it on within the next week.

3. You must post a comment on the blogs of the peopel you honor, letting them know you have given them an award.

That is it!! So very easy.

This month makes one year since I started blogging. When I began I wasn't sure how long I would last and to be honest, with the craziness of this past month, I wasn't sure I would continue much longer, but as I have thought about all of you and your friendships, words of wisdom and all that I learn from you, I realize how much I would miss not having you all in my life.

So . . . Here is to another year, and thanks for bringing so much . . . joy to my journey!!
