Liebster Blog Award!

Thank you thank you thank you to Julia at Julia's Place for this lovely new award! 

This Liebster Blog award is for ‘up and coming blogs’, and if you accept the award, you are to forward it on to five other new, up and comers. I don't know what exactly that means but as I am still in my first month of blogging, I certainly am new!  And my followers so far include 1 real life friend and 7 new blog-friends, so that is amazing for just a few short weeks!  Thank you so much Julia!

I offer this award to the following and urge you to check them out (I tried to pick some of the blogs I follow that are under the "100+ comments" variety, as my definition of "up and coming"):

1.  Lynda at Lynda Grace an Hour Away has been blowing me away with her writing - it is beautifully done. 

2.  Nancy at Dating Dementia just makes me laugh...and I've got to give a shout out to my fellow upper Midwesterner! 

3.  Shannon at Shannon Lell is a new one I've recently discovered.  That girl speaks my language!

4.  Therese at The Unlost is brand new to me - literally - I just read through a post about all the bad advice she learned first from the Disney Princesses and later from MTV and Cosmopolitan, and it was awesome!  Gotta get back over there and read some more!
OK, all you're getting is four.  I really need to spend a little time talking to my kids...Thank you to everyone who reads my random thoughts and congrats to the new awardees!  Sarah


  1. I feel very honored to be given this award, especially because it was you who thought of me.
    I shyly smiled when I read your description of my blog, because that's what I do when I receive recognition. It was a such a nice pat on the back.
    I also want to thank you for introducing me to these four, new to me blogs. I thoroughly enjoyed reading some of their posts.
    I don't think I will be able to pass along this award right now. (Gosh I hope that doesn't mean that I am declining, it's not really my intention.)
    One of the things this award has opened my eyes to, though, is that I can and should mention some of my great new blog discoveries from time to time in my blog.
    Thank you.

  2. I have been posting since July, but have only been "blogging" for a few weeks. The last time I traipsed around the country, I was in the military. I'm have a lot more fun this go around, and this site is one of the reasons. Talking to your kids has special meaning, so keep the tape recorder in your mind activated. You never know where your next post is coming from.

  3. Hey thank you so much, Sarah! I really appreciate that :). Keep up the blogging and Merry Christmas, girl!

  4. Sarah, Thank you SO much for picking me as one of your "favorite" blogs...and I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to respond to you. The holidays have put me way behind and so I am playing catch up. I mention the award on my new "Accolades and Bling" page on Dating Dementia and have posted a link back to your website. I'll also pass the award along to five others -- what a grand idea! Every blogger deserves some recognition! All the best to you in 2012. Warmly, Nancy

  5. Sarah, Are there any blogger groups in Minnesota? I'd love to connect with other like-minded people! Thanks again for the award...N
