Crowning Moments! Passing on the Love

I'd like to thank my family for all of their love and support, Five Foot Mama, and my fans. It has been an amazing journey and...

Oh, sorry. I got carrried away, and if it sounded like a night at the Oscars, that is how I felt to find out I had just received two blogging awards! "The Versatile Blogger" and the "Blog on Fire Award" were awarded to me by my little friend, Five Foot Mama. Check her out HERE. She shares some cute pictures and great stories.

Thanks again! How exciting!

Here are the rules that go along:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
4. Contact those buddies to congratulate them.

I'm giving away the "Versatile Blogger" award to the following:

  2. Thank you Melanie! You are so thoughtful.

  3. Oh my gosh! I cry at everything too!! Everything. Thank you for my award! and congrats! Yours is well deserved. So cool that you've written a children's book, too. That was my "thinking of what to do" before blogging. Bought a bunch of books about it, but ended up blogging. Maybe I'll go back to that some day, but I'm having so much fun with this! Have a wonderful Mother's Day weekend!

  4. Congratulations on receiving your award! I loved your facts!! I have always wanted to write a book, and YES, I am also addicted to the stats button on my dashboard!!!

  5.'s cool that you have a published book.

    And your degree is great!

    Aaaannnnddd...I'm a little addicted to checking out my stats too.

    I have the Versatile award, but can I take the fire one? That one's unique and I've never seen it before, so congrats!

  6. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your lovely comment literally brightened a terrible day. Thank you so much.

    Your family is gorgeous! Looking forward to getting to know you better.

  7. How cool that you published a children's book! And I can totally relate to your blog stats confession...I'm addicted to checking mine too :))

  8. Thanks for thinking of me, Melanie! Such an honour and what fantastic blogs you have selected.

    I can't believe you're on dial-up! Can you get broadband or just choose not to? Either way, you are far too patient!



Thank you so much for sharing. It makes my day!

I'm Dreaming of...Blog Hops
