I've been starving myself eating healthy in preparation for my upcoming family beach vacation, so when I saw the blog title "Cherry on Top" in my blog reader for Clara's new post, I clicked in a hurry. I mean, yummy desserts, right? I love her posts regardless of talk about sweets...she is a mom, a friend and a recovering alcoholic (6 months, baby!), so I find many inspiring words on her site that help me move along from day to day. So when she wasn't talking about desserts and instead nominated me for this award, I was blown away and so touched.
The rules of this yummy award are to...
1. Thank the person who gave the award to you.
Thank you Clara, this means so much!
2. Copy award and put it on your blog. See it up there? Done.
3. List three things you love about yourself
My big heart for babies and animals
My determination to get things done that are important to me
4. Post a photo that you love
This photo was taken 5 weeks after Avalon was born, in August of 2007. Loudoun was 3 and a half, and Rick and I had just completed our family. We still lived in our small apartment with couches that were falling apart, but we have always been happy no matter where we live or what circumstances we were in, and I see that in all of our faces. Plus, it was summer....we all love summer. I also love that someone made us sit down for a family portrait, even though so random and impromptu, because it seems one of us is always missing from the picture. And yes, Loudoun is eating raisins.
