  1. Hi BlogFriend:
    Thank you so much for the sweet award! I am honored--especially since I am enjoying YOUR blog so much!

    Thanks also for the great list of blogs to investigate... There may be a couple I don't know... As I am sure you have discovered: Us "big kid bloggers" have to stick together because there aren't as many of us!

    And: Two half marathons and a houseful of boys?!! IMPRESSIVE! You deserve any pink you can find!

    Thanks again,
