A Blog Award for ME???

My sweet, sweet friend in real life, Kelly, tagged me with a Blog Award. Me? I feel so honored. I adore Kelly and she has one of the best blogs. I just adore her (oh, I just said that), so a blog award from her made me feel so special! She said it was for blogs who bring you happiness and inspiration, so I wanted to pass on the love to some of the blogs that "Make my Day."

Jamie is on top of her blogging. I check her blog daily and she almost always has more than one new post. She has two adorable children. I can tell she is very organized and I hope to learn a thing or two from her in this area. Plus, I got to meet her in real life, and she is just as sweet in person as she seems on her blog.

Kelly's Mom, Judy, is so precious. She is full of love for her family, her dogs (The Boys), and her church. I always look forward to getting comments from her, which are always so sweet and they truly make my day. Plus, her blog makes me laugh.

Sarah just makes me laugh, laugh, laugh. She is my friend in real life. She holds a special place in my heart because she was also Evan's speech therapist at one time. She has the biggest heart and is so funny! She is expecting her first baby, and I am so happy for her!

The next three have a very, very special place in my heart because they have embraced my family, especially my Evan's stuggle with autism. They truly inspire me...

Lauren is hilarious. She cracks me up all the time when I read her blog! I do think we may have been separated at birth, as we have a lot in common. She has the cutest little boy, and I LOVE her decorating style. Such a sweet girl.

Meagan is a teacher and it's obvious she is a good one. Her love for life just comes through the screen when you read her blog. She is fun and every time I read her blog, I leave feeling better and smiling.

Megan is THE sweetest person I have never met. She has the cutest family which includes her baby boy who is the cutest thing on the earth and I think I'm making a trip to Tennessee just to see him! :) She has truly inspired me...the way she has shown love to me and my family is amazing. I'm so blessed I found her!

Oh, I think I could go on and on. If you are on my blogroll, I love you and check your blog every single day, maybe even twice a day. Reading your blogs does "make my day," and I thank you for sharing a little of yourself with me! I feel like I'm a better person for it!

Oh wow--you're so sweet! I'm honored--I've never been given a "blog award" before!!! I guess I'm not supposed to give an award back to the person who presented it (or maybe there are no "rules") :), but I truly love checking your blog and reading about your family. Your children and so very cute and your family looks so sweet and happy. I really do hope we can get together sometime for a playdate in real-life! Thanks again!!!!
