Blogger Award ~ thanks Kirst!

My sweet cousin Kirsten nominated me for a beautiful blogger award, all together now "ahhh." I know, she's too sweet. Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for the award
2. copy the award and paste it on your blog
3. link to the person who nomiated you for the award
4. share 7 interesting things about yourself
5. nominate 7 other beautiful bloggers



7 interesting things:

1. I don't eat oranges....ever (but I drink orange juice, no pulp please)

2. I would rather suffer than take medicine if it tastes gross (even if it would cure me)

3. I have a large "2" hanging in my living room and people often ask me why~ 2 is my favorite number and my daughter was born on the 2nd.

4. As much as I love photography I often think I should never pick up my camera again (this is pretty much a daily struggle)

5. I never thought I would have an only child, but sometimes I think B just might be it (stay tuned)

6. I get embarrassed when I am put in a position to explain (to a virtual stranger) that I have only lived in OR since June and before that I lived in Ireland for a year, then before that I lived in Bass Lake for 4 months, then before that I lived in Pasadena, etc... I feel like it makes me seem flakey and really random when in actuality that's not me at all. Life has just been a little crazy for us the past couple years! We're actually pretty darn stable (and boring most of the time!).

7. I miss California every day.

I don't know how "interesting" that list was but there you have it! Okay, now onto my 7 beautiful bloggers:

1. Tracy -she is inspiring and lovely inside and out

2. Kelly -her photos knock my socks off and she's just a cool chick

3. Jen -one of my oldest and best friends who really needs to blog more

4. Rachel -she is my sister-in-law, just had her 4th baby and really, she doesn't have time for this but maybe, just maybe this will spur her on to do a blog post!

5. Bev-my mom's bestie who is an amazing photographer and has lots of great ideas

6. Carrie -a long time friend of mine who travels the world w/ her husband and is currently living in China.

7. Anna -my friend from high school who always manages to look fab while wrangling her 3 little ones.

Happy Wednesday everyone! xo

Bless Kirsten's heart! How sweet:)
You are a wonderful blogger/photographer and each morning I can't wait to read about what you are doing and see new pictures!

My first blog award! I'd like to thank, well, you. :-)

(And thank you for the very, very kind words about my photography. I'll buy you a new pair of socks to show my gratitude.)

I'm sitting here going, 'awww' because you're so sweet and b/c it's nice to get an award! Not sure that I deserve it but this will give me an excuse for another blog post. :) And I can't wait to see you next weekend!

Hi Molly:

Tracy is ... Loving Pretty Things said...

Oh my sweet friend, you are WAY too kind....and such a precious bloggie friend. Even more than that, I actually have TOUCHED you before! ;) (and no, not like that....haha!)

Thank you for your sweet words, I just adore you, and LOVE the pictures that I have taken by YOU. Who should never put the camera down. Serious. But I understand the struggles, too!

And as for #5 - If you're comfortable, I'd love to chat with you about that. Seeing as how the decision just might be made for me, I'd love to talk with someone else about their experiences/choices/etc...I'm here.

HUUUGS! Hope to see you in April...even if it is passing on the street! xoxo

Thank you sweet friend! I never knew a beautiful blogger award existed, but can certainly see how you were awarded with it! Thanks for sharing a few things on your heart too ... can certainly relate to the feeling of seeming flaky even though you're really not :)

You miss California every day? Aw, gee. That's the thing I glommed onto. I wonder if I would. Probably.
