Awards!!

I received 2 blog awards today. Yea!!! :) Two of my favorite people, Lura & Marie, bestowed two very lovely awards to my blog today and I am honored! Lura is the sweetest lady ever. I actually met her through blogging and then got to meet her in "real" life while we were in California and I just love her! I feel like she is family. And I love reading her sweet blog. She has a beautiful family and I love the thoughts about the importance of family and the gospel that she shares. Marie is someone else I've met through blogging but unfortunately have never met in "real" life, but maybe someday! :) She is a talented writer and an amazing chef living in England. She always posts beautiful stories and delicious recipes. And she is a loyal follower of my blog- I love reading her sweet comments each day. They always make me smile. Both of these women are wonderful! I feel blessed to know them.

The first award is the Blogging Friends Award(given to me by Marie).


This is what it said on Marie's blog about this award, "These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these kind writers." I consider ALL of you to be my awesome blogging friends, but I have to pick 8 so here they are: Tara, Amber, Melissa, Laura, Kristi, Devri, Mindi, & Rachel. Thanks for being my blog friends!

This award is the "Nice Matters" award(given to me by Lura) You are supposed to pass it along to blogs you read that are really nice, something you really enjoying reading each week. Lura picked 6, so I'll pick 6 too. Here are my 6: Mom, Jan, Suzie, Emily, Kim & Nicole. I love reading your blogs ladies!

Thanks again to Lura and Marie. You ladies are so sweet:) You are two of my favorite bloggers out there.

What can I say Holly, I say it as I see it and you so deserved this award and I can see Lura thinks as highly of you as I do! I would love to meet you one day as I would love to meet Lura as well! Our home here in England is more than open to you. If you guys ever come over here and don't stay with us for at least part of your trip I would be highly insulted!!! 45 minutes from the centre of London and only 2 hours from Paris via the Eurostar, we are in the perfect area!
