My First Blog Award

Hi everyone!

I want to thank Maeve at for presenting me with the Stylish Blogger Award. I'm surprised and very honored.

The Rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person giving you the award.

2. Share 7 Things About Yourself.

3. Award 10-15 Blogs Who You Think Deserve This Award.

4. Contact these bloggers and let them know about the award.

Here are the seven things about me:

1. I'm a mother of three children. A seven year old , four year old and eleven month old.

2. I love to research new things, especially if it's for a story I'm creating.

3. I am trying to illustrate my very first picture book, just for the heck of it.  No, not really, if it's any good I'll see if it will help me get noticed out there in that big publishing world. Wish me good luck!

4. Three of my favorite passtimes are sitting on the beach, bike riding, and reading (preferably on the beach)

5. I'm from Connecticut. Haven't lived up there in 13 years.

6. Me and my husband are taking our kids to Disney World next year for the very 1st time, should be exciting!

7. Someday soon, I'd like to vacation in the northwest coast. Maybe visit some wineries and drive the Pacific Coast Highway. (but definitely not while drinking wine)  (:

My 15 Stylish Blogs I pass on this Award to are:

  4. Awh bless, thank you.
    Great to know some new stuff about you, too :O)

  5. Thank you, Jennifer! And you will absolutely love the Pacific Northwest. I have family up there and thoroughly enjoy my visits, every time. :)

  6. Hi Jennifer - I am glad to have the opportunity to know you better. Good luck with the picture book illustrations! Also, I hope you have fun when you go to Disney World! There is nothing like being able to see it throught your children's eyes!

  7. Thanks Callie- You deserved it!

    Robyn- Thanks for your warm complements and you're welcome! I really enjoy visiting your blog!

    You're more than welcome Madeleine, thanks for accepting it.

    Hey Suze, can't wait to see what it's all about. I've only been along the Eastern coastline. :( Thanks for accepting, you're a fantastic blogger!

    Maeve, thanks for all the good luck wishes, I'll need them. You're blog is always full of helpful tips. Glad to know a bit more about your very creative too! Thanks again for my much appreciated award!

  8. Thanks, Jennifer! What a pleasant surprise! And congratulations on your award. I envy you your trip to Disney World; we took our son there four years ago when he was ten. We had a fantastic time. The key to a really enjoyable Disney time is to plan, plan, plan before you go. My son was still a picky eater at that time, so we had to really narrow our restaurant choices, and I made reservations at those restaurants four or five months in advance.

  9. Congrats on your award and thank you for thinking of me to share it with! I will do my "meme" for the award over the weekend! Am totally worn out this evening!

  10. Thanks for the award Jennifer! I am blushing:)

  11. You're welcome, Jude, Barbara and Deana. Thanks for the great advise Jude! Looking forward to reading your blog for the "meme" Barbara. :) So glad you stopped by to leave a note Deana! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
