Awards Show

I recently was given my first blog award by my dear friend and most excellent food blogger, Prudence Pennywise. Who, me? I'm not worthy-- especially with the sluggish pace I've had lately when it comes to posting. I will pass along the award, however, as it gives me a chance to praise other bloggers who are more deserving. (And if you haven't checked out Prudy's blog, you should. I have tried three or four of her recipes in the past week and have found each of them to be phenomenal. Then again, I have been using many of her recipes for years, because everything she touches is bound to be delicious.)

One of my favorite bloggers is a fellow classical homeschooler. I love reading her blog and feel like we have been friends for years even though we've never met. Sonja at the Wonder Years has lots of wonderful ideas, a gift at bringing images to life through words (and with her new SLR camera,) and has such an uplifting attitude toward motherhood. I always feel better for having read her blog.

Another blog whose posts I look forward to is Mindyluwho. Her posts have not been very frequent lately, but they are always meaty and inspiring. She has an entire series of posts on the writings of Isaiah with the insights she gained as she studied Isaiah chapter by chapter in 2007. I definitely think you should take a gander at her blog if you want to be spiritually fed.

My last "E for excellent award" goes to Daring Young Mom, who never fails to crack me up. Her blog has far more readers than this humble little blog of mine, and she may not want to even post this award--chances are she has received it before. But I wanted my readers to wander over and fall in love with her wit. She is easy to relate to and finds the humor in everyday mothering situations.

So go forth and read. You won't be disappointed.

Michal! You do have a most excellent blog and are completely deserving of the award! I'm very flattered by and thankful for your kind words. But most of all, I'm thankful for your friendship and for the company along this journey of motherhood. :)

Congratulations to you and thank you too! I have been at Girls Camp all week so just now saw that you got this award and gave it to me! I'm so grateful for the friendship we have been able to develop both on and off blogland!

Congratulations and thank you so much. I haven't gotten this award. In fact I rarely get these kinds of things and I really appreciate you being so sweet.
