I should probably have a disclaimer somewhere on my site about blog awards. Although I think they are very sweet, I am certain to be delayed in my "acceptance" and I may or may not follow the rules. It's just part of the whole life balance/prioritizing my time thing. Please know it's not in any way a reflection of the giver or my heartfelt appreciation.
Once again... it's not you, it's me.
That said, over the past few weeks I have actually received the "One Lovely Blog Award" from three lovely fellow bloggers.
Of course there are RULES. Because I'm a big cheater and live to make things more simple, I've taken six lines of "rule text" and condensed it into two lines.
1. Post the award on your blog including the name of the giver and giver's blog link. 2. Pass the award to other blogs that you’ve newly discovered and let them know you've done so.
Oh - did I mention I like to break rules? Cool.
So, I am actually going to give this award to Miss Caroline Bender at Drawing In. The truth is this is the first blog I discovered, not the newest. But she really is lovely and long overdue for an award in my opinion.
Just in case there is a blogger hell where people who don't follow rules end up someday, I'll also give this to Hear Mum Roar whom I most recently discovered through Mom Blogger's Club.
This blog is partly selfish since writing is both a great passion and a treasured sanctuary for me.
As a 40-something happily married mommy, perpetual student and business exec who has to "bring home the bacon" (so to speak, since I am a vegetarian), I also strive to help others and answer the question I get often which is,“How do you DO it all?”
Somewhere along the line I figured out that it’s less about theDOING that’s important; it’s about the BEING. True life balance is internal.
And yet, the “stuff” still has to get done.
It is my sincere pleasure to share my writing as well as what I know about doing it all and being truly happy in the process.
Wishing you great health, happiness and prosperity,
