You're All Winners in My Book

Last week, Jane gave me the BFF Gold Card Award. I was thrilled, because I love her blog. Jane blogs from Mozambique, where she and her husband work with Maranatha Volunteers International. She is a wonderful mommy to cute little Esme, and together they do tons of fun learning activities and crafts.

The rules for this award are simple: pass it along to people who have been following your blog for a long time, and then to a new follower from another country.

Since my blog is only a few months old, this was difficult! I appreciate every single comment that is left! Comments are a way to interact with those of you who are reading, and I really enjoy getting to know you all better. Plus, they let me know someone has actually read my post! So to everyone who lays their eyeballs on this - thank you for reading, and for leaving a comment when you are so inclined.

I am passing the award on to several people who almost always comment on my posts!

Fiona is a new mommy to beautiful Iain. Her blog makes me remember (just a year or so back in time,) when Evie was an infant. Plus, I love to see her Iain in all his cuteness! I'm always excited to receive a notification that Fiona has left a comment!

Scarlett O'Kara was one of the first people to comment regularly on my blog. I love her recipes, stories about her kids, and the enthusiasm she has for her football teams!

Jackie is a sweet mommy to gorgeous Savannah. Savannah is just a little older than Evie, so it's fun to see what's ahead for me! Plus, Jackie always knows what fun things are happening in the blogosphere, and she's not afraid to join in!

And my sweet family, my sister Rachel and my father-in-law Bruce, leave great comments. Rachel writes funny posts about ordinary life (elastic pants, anyone?) and Dad is chronicling his year of life on the road. I love them both so much!

Finally, Renee leaves me sweet comments, and I'm glad I found her blog. She's lives in Canada, and is a mommy to precious Rebeka. She's expecting another baby soon, so things are about to get even more interesting!

Congratulations on this well deserved award! I had no idea your blog is only a few months old. I figured you've been blogging for a while now :)

Fiona said...

Ooo! How exciting. It's no wonder, though, that you got it. Your writing is so personal and heartfelt. You and Rachel both got some kind of "writer" gene because the first post I read on her blog (the one you linked to about world poverty day) made me think, "What was in the water for those girls? They both write like angels!"

And thank you so much for passing it on to me! Iain would thank you, but he's currently inhaling his breakfast. No food is safe around The Moose. Also (for your amusement) he's wearing argyle, stripes, and a fair isle sweater, all at the same time.

Now I have to think about where to pass it...I assume you're not supposed to pass them back?

Congrats on a cute, wonderful award! SO exciting... (and well deserved) :)

Thank you Sarah! I am thrilled to get this from you. And of course you know that I LOVE visiting you and seeing sweet Evie and reading your wonderful really do have a way with words.

Someone sent me this, but now Kelsey says it's not true. I emailed the blog owners and am waiting to hear back. I think it is true because I remember her saying she was 15 somewhere and now all these blog posts are missing on her site!!!

Rachel said...

Oh, you're such a sweet sister. :)

Scarlet O'Kara said...

You do deserve this award! And I am honored that you passed it on to me.

What a fun award for such a sweet gal! This is the first place I have seen that one. I love it!
