And the award goes to....

ME. My first award. I am so excited. Thank you to Barefoot.
She changed her toes, check it out. Now I know I need a pedicure even though I am still wearing U.ggs.

The Rules:

1. Put the logo on your blog or post.
2. Nominate 10 blogs with great attitude and/or gratitude.
3. Be sure to link to your nominees in your post.
4. Let your nominees know they have received the award by leaving them a comment on their blog.
5. Be sure to link this post to the person who nominated you for the award

I turned to this community when I started my non-profit. I have had so much support it has been truly amazing, and I am very grateful. I wish I had know of you all when I was going through the really tough times of IF, but better late than never. I may not be doing ART anymore, but I have many thoughts and feelings on infertility as well as adoption. It is extremely wonderful to have a group of people to turn to who will listen to my opinions and thoughts- on my bad days as well as the good.
It's funny how life works out sometimes. I was in a funk a few months ago feeling lonely and unfulfilled in my life on a social level. I love my friends IRL, but they all seemed busy with their lives, houses, and work. I felt I needed to connect with someone who understood my life as an adoptive parent, someone who understood that I still grieve about not bearing children, someone who understood my quest to start this non profit. As it turns out I have found many, many women to add to my life's journey. Some are close, some are far. But, what I needed so much to have has been captured. Thank you for existing and having stumbled across my little space in the sphere of blogs.

My List:

8. Yaya

9. Beautiful Mess - "What a beautiful mess... it's like picking up trash in dresses."

p.s. Tomorrow is my first installment of the "Quotable Quotidian." Drag out your favorite quotes, poems, lines from movies, plays, song. Come back and visit tomorrow. I'll try my hand at Mr. Linky. He better be good to me.
