Taking Care of Business

Erika, over at The Flight of Our Hummingbird has given me two awards. The great thing about blogging, especially when you have an incredible community of bloggers like I do, is that you can accept accolades from the privacy of your home and then pass them on. Thank you, Erika, for the awards and for your beautiful, inspiring writing. I would like to pass this award on to The House of Nana, a blog that I am absolutely addicted to.

  1. Oh! (blush. looks at shoes. whisper- giggles.) I'm obviously addicted to your blog as well and have been here about 50 times today, looking at everything on your side bar and such. Oh, thank-you!

  2. Congratulations - you deserve it! And I love reading these memes. It's fun to learn more about our blog-buddies. XO

  3. Of course you deserve the awards, and the memes are so fun (and funny). Love that you get to be in your pjs in the am. I stay as long as I can but my kids still expect me to drive them to school. (I think a 5 year old could walk a mile up hill, don't you???)

  4. Congrats. You are a wonderful blogger!! I love Target P.J.s, too.

  5. Come over, I'm having a giveaway.

    Love Renee xoxo

  6. So we're allowed more than single word answers? That's a relief. I do enjoy your blog so much regardless of my recent ranting of sadness. Your blog is attractive and diverse, and I am jealous of the food blog. I mean, really, what in the heck is polenta anyway? Is it a grain or a pasta or what?;) Your energy and ability to show glimpses of truth and beauty make me look forward to your next posts. Bravo!!
