5 Awesome Bloggers Who Qualify for This Major Award!
Hollie--my cousin, who despite stressful attempts at canning still makes me laugh every time I read her blog. When I see her (like once a year at Christmas), she is always smiling.
Holly--my aunt, who's not really my aunt, but kind of is. She has been a major help in this bloggy world and I love reading about her adventures and zest for life.
Kristin--my friend, who shows me how to relax and not be so uptight about things Mike might want to do. She is like the ultimate "cool" wife and is a really patient mom. Her blog is funny (and private) too.
Kathryn-- my friend, who is cute, smart, amazing, crafty, talented, etc., etc. Kathryn convinced me to get into this blog stuff, and boy am I grateful. Kathryn was a great friend through many times and always helped me smile!
Emily R.-- A new bloggy friend, who grew up with Mike, Em is the absolute example of smile. She has a precocious pre-schooler and toddler twins and she manages to smile and laugh through all their antics. Thanks for your nice comments Em, they always make me feel good.
Lots of other people make me smile! Thanks everyone!
