The Very Inspiring Blogger Award and Nominations

A couple of days ago, I was nominated by Andy Mulberry from Something Smells Fishy Here for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. When I received her message, I had to read it over and over again to make sure I got it right, even though it was pretty straight forward. So, a HUGE thank you to Andy for the nomination! It means so much to me when someone, somewhere, finds what I do worthy of recognition. And coming from a great writer like Andy, I couldn’t help but do a little dance of joy.

Andy is a working mom by day and a writer by night. I had the pleasure of connecting with Andy through another blog, where we discussed ingenious ways of promoting picture books through diapers (it can be done!). You can find her wonderful books on Amazon. And be sure to check out her amazing blog!

The award rules are:

  1. Display the award on your blog

  2. Link back to the person who nominated you

  3. State 7 things about yourself

  4. Nominate 15 bloggers, link to them, and notify them about their nominations

So, here are seven pretty random things about me:

  1. I am an excellent singer. Idol material. A STAR! But only in the shower.

  2. I enjoy watching my kids when they don’t know I’m looking; studying their little faces and the way they move, taking them in. I am so in love with them (obviously).

  3. I have about 300 books on my reading list. I’m hoping I’ll be able to dive in as soon as the little one goes off to college. He’s 20 months old.

  4. I love food. I love to eat. I enjoy eating with complete disregard for calories and am convinced that holiday food contains zero calories.

  5. I also happened to have a Master’s degree in Nutrition.

  6. If I could get away with it, I would wear jeans and a t-shirt every day and everywhere (and I do most of the time).

  7. I love arts and crafts. Always have. Partly because I enjoy creating, but mostly because they help me stop thinking.

Here are my nominations; 15 incredible blogs and bloggers who have touched and inspired me in different ways.

  1. Happy Sensitive Kids by Amanda van Mulligen, a wonderful lady who writes from her heart.

  2. Highly Sensitive Child & Highly Sensitive Souls by Brenda Dronkers, a beautiful, successful, sensitive woman who has touched the lives of many.

  3. Surviving a Sleep Thief by Emily-Jane Clark, a hilarious blogger who also inspires many through her survivor stories.

  4. Journeys of the Fabulist by Bronwyn Joy, a gifted writer who inspires me to be more adventurous (and does an amazing job at cracking me up).

  5. Sheep Dressed Like Wolves by Andy Mort, creator of the Haven, a wonderful place where Highly Sensitive People and Introverts can be themselves and find the love and support they need.

  6. Catching Crawfish by Chelsi, mom of three boys, sharing beautiful stories of her adventures.

  7. Titanimom by Jennifer Scheidt, an incredible woman who shares her experiences about foster parenting. I have cried on several occasions reading her stories.

  8. Big Trouble in Little Nappies by Yvette Lamb. I have found myself reading Yvette’s brilliant posts over and over again. Some have even made it to my fridge.

  9. Dirty Rotten Parenting by Robin. This blog was voted second funniest blog in Canada, and it’s very easy to see why!

  10. Mom Life Now by Sasha Douglas, a talented blogger who always succeeds at making me feel less alone.

  11. Wine and Cheese Doodles, simply wonderful.

  12. Mom Upside Down by Courtney and Nathalie, two moms who left their jobs to stay home with the kiddoes.

  13. Free But Fun by a super-mom in Helsinki, loaded with great, simple ideas to have fun with the family.

  14. This is Motherhood by Britta who does a fantastic job at writing a lovely (and very helpful) parenting blog.

  15. Sand in my Toes by Tarana Khan, a mom based in Dubai who shares amazing tips about blogging, parenting, crafts, and much more!

There are so many more blogs I enjoy, but alas I had to narrow it down to 15. What are your favorite blogs?
